Limo or Pizza?

pizza

One of the most frequent questions we get at Century West Limousines is “How many people can fit in a limo?”.  This is a rather loaded question.  It’s akin to asking your local pizza parlor “How many slices are in your pizza”?  Without knowing the SIZE of said pizza, the number of slices is hardly relevant.  If they offer a 16 inch pizza, whether it’s cut into 10 slices or 52, it’s the same amount of food.  Same with a limousine; the number of passengers depends on which limo you are asking about, and the size and configuration of that limo.

So, when you call a limousine service, the best course of action is to simply tell them “I need a limo for “X number of people”, followed by the simple question “What are my options?”.  This will get the ball rolling, and the representative on the phone would then be able to go over the various vehicle types, configurations and capacities.

They may ask if you prefer a traditional ‘sedan-based’ limousine, such as the Chrysler 300 or Lincoln Town Car, a cross-over limousine, such as the Lincoln MKT, an SUV limousine, such as the Cadillac Escalade (shown above), or the Hummer H2.  Depending on the fleet of the service, you may also be offered a van-based limo like the Mercedes Luxury Coach, or a limousine based on a bus platform, like the Freightliner Limo bus (shown below).

Some of the choices offer the ability to stand up, some offer toilets, all offer luxury seating, bar, fiber optic lighting and high end digital entertainment systems.  Your choice at this point is based on your personal preferences, and/or the recommendations of the service provider.

Hopefully using these tips, and taking the time to do a little research on the fleet(s) of the services you are considering, you will be able to come to the most informed decision possible, and snag the perfect limo for your event.  And maybe on the way you can ask the chauffeur to pull over for some pizza.  Whether that’s a slice or a whole pie… that’s up to you!  But you may want to offer your driver some, as that’s just rude to fill a car with the smell of pizza and keep it all to yourself!

The Lincoln MKT – A Step Up In Luxury

The Lincoln Town Car, in all of its various incarnations was (and still is) a beautiful example of luxury transportation.  It largely became the standard luxury sedan for the entire limousine industry.

Sure, the Cadillac XTS is also a worthy competitor, but Lincoln has not given up in the least.  The Lincoln MKT – referred to as a luxury crossover vehicle – has now taken the prize of the most popular stretch limousine in recent customer surveys.  Stylish lines and amazing interiors are just two reasons.

So if you’d like to check out the Lincoln MKTs yourself, give us a call, or visit our newly redesigned website for more details and information.  Proms, weddings, nights on the town; all are ideal occasions to roll in the MKT.

 

 

 

 

 

Guy’s Night Out!

OK, so we all know the “girls” have their nights, so we can have ours, right?

Guy's Night Out 1

So, now that that’s settled, what to do?  Dinner?  Bar hopping?  Clubbing?  All of the above?  Sure!  But… who’s gonna draw the short straw and be the designated driver tonight?  No one is raising their hand.  So what’s it going to be… Cab?  Uber?  No, not tonight.  There’s 8 of you, and you want to live it up in style.  It’s settled… you need a limo!

Guy's Night Out 2

So now, which limo?  Well, our website can help get you started, as can a conversation with one of our reservationists, but some suggestions for you now would be the Lincoln Town Car stretch limo, the Chrysler 300 stretch limo, the Cadillac Escalade super stretch limo, and the Hummer H2 super stretch limo.  They can seat from 8 to 18 people.  Larger group than that… go for the luxury limo bus.

Make it a night to remember.  And speaking of remembering… remember this; what happens in the limo, stays in the limo.  Enough said.

Quinceañera Limousine

What a special time for your daughter.  You’ve gotten her the dress of her dreams, rented the hall, made arrangements at the church, hired the band for the party, but wait… what are you forgetting?  Of course!  The limo!

Quinceanera 1

Your Quinceañera limousine needs to be just as special as your Quinceañera. It’s a large part of the celebration.  When it comes to limos, we know how to make her special day even more special.  Ride in style, luxury and comfort to all of the destinations.  She’ll be a princess all day, and you won’t have to concern yourself with driving, directions or traffic.

Any of our late model Lincoln and Chrysler stretch limousines will work well.  Or for a larger group, try one of our super stretch SUV limousines, such as the Cadillac Escalade or the eye catching Hummer H2. And for the largest groups / families, our luxury limo bus will fit the bill perfectly.

All of the limos in our fleet come with complementary sparkling cider, bottled water and ice. And our professional chauffeurs will make sure everything is just right on your daughter’s special day.

Quinceanera 2

Depending on the size of your family, or your plans, a larger sized limousine can transport all of your friends and family to and from the church, the park for pictures, and then to the final reception hall party. We can also arrange for more than one limousine, or even a passenger van or SUV for the parents.  Whatever you need for your Quinceanera, we can help make it a day to remember.

Quinceanera 3

For questions about Quinceañera limousines, give us a call or send us an email. Our reservation professionals are happy to help you with your Quinceañera planning, including vehicles choices, park or church recommendations, etc.

Time For A Wedding? Time For A Wedding Limousine!

Spring

It’s going to be Spring soon… a time of new beginnings, new flowers, warmer days… and weddings.  If you are planing a spring wedding, we hope you’ve already gotten started, because it will be here before you know it!  Sure, right now, with the record cold temperatures across the country, it doesn’t feel like it will, but trust us on this one, we know.

Often times, when it comes to weddings, people make their plans and reservations a year in advance, or more.  Popular venues book up quickly, and the prices will rise the closer it gets to the big day.  So once you’ve figured out the where and when, get busy!

Bride and Lincoln LimousineWhen it comes to wedding transportation, we’re happy to help.  First, you’ll need to know how many people will be in your wedding party, and whether you’ll need more than one limousine – often times the bride and groom have their own limo, while family and friends ride in another one.  In those cases, a classic like the Lincoln Town Car stretch limo is an ideal choice.  Or you may want to consider the Chrysler 300 stretch limo.  An optional family/friends vehicle would be a Chevy Suburban or Cadillac Escalade SUV, or perhaps a Ford passenger van.

Cadillac Escalade super stretch SUV limo

In the case of larger groups sharing one vehicle, our recommendations (depending on the number of people), would be a Cadillac Escalade super stretch SUV, a Hummer H2 super stretch SUV, or one of our luxury party buses, with capacities of up to 36 guests!

If you aren’t sure which to choose, give us a call today, and let our wedding limousine experts guide you to the right choice for your special day.

Thanks for reading, and good luck!
