Executive Transportation

Many people, when they think of limousines, think of weddings, proms, or nights on the town.  All of those things are typical uses for a limousine, but what often gets overlooked is corporate travel needs.

business-limo

Whether it’s a ride to a local airport, a trip to a business meeting, or entertaining the office for a job well done, all the options that are available for traditional limousine clients are also there for executives.  Granted, an understated Lincoln Town Car may be the preferred choice over, say… a super stretch Hummer H2 limo, but you never know when a 40 passenger limo bus may come in handy, say for a corporate weekend retreat.

BUS-40 -- Outside

Airport transportation is always something that comes up.  Why use a smelly cab when you can arrive in style and comfort – with room for all your luggage – in a luxury sedan or executive SUV?  There are even hybrid vehicles available if you want to make a green impression with clients.

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

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!

Limo Shopping in Beverly Hills!

No, we don’t mean shopping FOR a limo in Beverly Hills, we mean doing your shopping in Beverly Hills using a limo for your transportation…

Beverly Hills Rodeo Drive

Too ostentatious for you?  Well, we don’t mean this is something you should do every day!  But think about it… there are numerous reasons you might want to look into this.  Suppose you’re visiting Los Angeles for the first time, or you are a resident, but you have relatives coming in from out of town.  Regardless, what better way to see the sites and do some shopping?

And now that the holiday season is upon us, Christmas lights and decorations will soon be everywhere, and if you’ve never been to Beverly Hills during that time of year, you don’t know what you’re missing.Beverly Hills Christmas 2

That said, what better way to tool around Beverly Hills than in a limo (as they say, when in Rome…).  Not only will the chauffeur know how to get to all the best places, but he will be the one who has to deal with the traffic – NOT you.  And you won’t need to worry about parking hassles either, since the driver can simply drop you off where you want to start, and pick you up where you finish.

Beverly Hills Christmas 3

And when the shopping is done, now the real fun begins.  You limo can take you to all the most beautifully decorated Beverly Hills homes!  You won’t believe the holiday light shows you will see in that city.  You don’t need to know how to find them, since your chauffeur will know the best spots.  Your only job will be to sit back and relax, perhaps with a nice drink, listening to festive music on the stereo, and take in the sights.

Beverly Hills Christmas 4

When you’re done for the evening, you’ll be taken back to where you began, again… no traffic or driving concerns.  And if you decided to bring along out of town guests, just think how impressed they will be with a limousine day like this!

If you’re interested in finding out more, please give us a call, or visit our website for more information.  Thanks for reading, and happy limo shopping!
