20 Sep HOW TO INTERVIEW A LONG ISLAND LIMO COMPANY
MAKE SURE YOU TRAVEL IN STYLE
Successful travel plans depend on a wide number of moving factors, but one thing you can control is the quality of your ground transportation provider. It’s an unfortunate reality that air delays, weather events and unprofessional car services can turn a dream holiday into a nightmare. If travel is part of your business, it pays to take the time to interview a company to find one that will deliver each and every time. We’ve compiled a list of the top five questions that can help you identify the right limo company
1. IS THE LONG ISLAND LIMO COMPANY COMPLIANT AND COVERED?
One of the first factors you can ask during a phone interview with a sales representative is whether the company is compliant with all state and federal regulations. Companies are required to license their vehicles and purchase liability coverage for protection. Any New York, New England or Long Island limo company you can trust with your business won’t hesitate to share information about their coverage and compliance or even provide copies of certificates. If the company won’t share too many details about their compliance, it’s a good sign you should quickly end the interview. If the company won’t even comply with federal laws, it’s a sure sign there are issues with their business
2. ARE THE VEHICLES REGULARLY SERVICED AND CLEANED?
Think of the worst thing that could possibly happen between the hotel and airport, on the way to an important business lunch or as you’re headed to the church to talk down the aisle. Mechanical breakdowns, blown tires and traffic accidents likely top the list. While there are never any complete guarantees in the world of autos, a Long Island limo company you can trust will do everything possible to ensure their cars are in top shape. Ask the company if their vehicles are new, cleaned frequently and how often they’re inspected
3. HOW LONG HAS THE COMPANY BEEN IN BUSINESS?
While age isn’t always a perfect indicator of overall strength, if a company has been in business since 1996, there’s a good chance they are doing something right. Ask the company about their overall experience in the ground transportation industry, and how much effort they put towards training their Chauffeurs into true professionals.
4. DOES THE LIMO COMPANY OPERATE 24/7?
Chances are, all of your work dinners, flights, business trips and events won’t be taking place between the hours of 9am and 5pm, Monday through Friday. It’s not only essential to find a car that can deliver service 24/7, but doesn’t hike up their fees after hours or completely shut down the office. If you need to call for information or changes at 7pm, will you be able to reach a staff member? the fees associated?
5. ARE THERE ANY HIDDEN FEES?
Think of all the additional costs associated with driving a car in the Long Island area. There are parking fees, tolls, gas and insurance. When you’re working with a Long Island limo company, these costs can affect the price of rental, not to mention tipping the driver for their service! An honest company won’t hesitate to give you an accurate quote for service during the interview process. If costs are a concerned in the booking process, make sure you’ve identified a Long Island limo company committed to financial transparency.
