How Big Is Your Limo?

Probably the most frequent question we receive at ABC Limo is… “How many passengers can fit in one of your limousines?”

That’s always a tough one to answer.  It’s very similar to calling your local pizza place and asking how many slices there are in a pizza.  If you don’t know the SIZE of the pizza (or in this case, the size of the limo), the question isn’t going to help you decide which one is right for you.

Going back to the pizza example, if they have an 18 inch pizza, cutting it into 12 slices or 40, it’s still the same amount of pizza.  And it’s the same thing with a limo… the capacity depends on which limousine you are asking about, and the configuration of that limo.

What do we recommend?  Well, when you call a limo service, the best thing to do is tell them “I need a limousine for 10 people” (or however many passengers you expect to have), followed by “what options do I have?”

Fleet_cover_02

This will tell the customer service representative exactly what he or she needs to know, and they can then go over the various limo types, configurations and passenger capacities.  sedan or SUV, coach or bus.  You’ll get the information you need to make an informed choice, and won’t end up with the wrong limo – either one that’s too small, or one that’s way bigger than you need (and more costly than you need too).

And once you’ve chosen the perfect limo for your needs, and the big night has come, maybe at some point you can ask your chauffeur to stop for some pizza.  A whole pie, or just a slice, that’s your call.  But when you’re there, don’t forget to offer your driver some, as we all know it’s just plain rude to fill a car with the smell of hot pizza, and then not share it with everyone else!

Girls’ Night Out!

The big night is here.  Time to leave the boys at home and hit the town with your girlfriends.  But there’s a problem… it’s a big group this time, and not everyone will fit in one car… probably not even in two or three cars.  And an even bigger problem… nobody wants to be the designated driver tonight.  So, what to do?

girls_night_out_04

 

There are your obvious options; you can call a taxi, or try your luck with one of those amateur “phone app” car services, but with either of those choices, you’re still looking at multiple cars – which means you won’t all be together on the way, or in between destinations, and more than likely you won’t all arrive at the same time.  And really, what fun is that?

cab_driver_01

I mean really, do you want THIS GUY driving you and the girls anywhere?  I don’t think so.  Nope, the answer is clear… for this night out, you need to go big.  You need a stretch limo!

Limo_bus_interior

With that settled, now comes the fun part; picking out the perfect night out limo.  Depending on the size of your party, you can go with a Lincoln Town Car or MKT stretch limo.  Maybe a Chrysler 300 stretch?  Or go bigger with something like a Cadillac Escalade super stretch SUV limo.  Or what about the attention-grabbing Hummer H2 super stretch SUV limo?

Hummer H2 Limousine

Not big enough?  Well then, you can’t go wrong with a luxury limo coach or party bus.  Room enough for everyone, and the ideal place to start ‘the party before the party’, since all of our limousines have bars and high end entertainment systems to get things going right away.

So whatever the plan – dinner, clubbing, cruising DC?  It’s all up to you and your girls.  No concerns with driving, navigating, or parking.  Your only job is to get out there and have fun.

Bachelorette Party: Limo-Style!

Your best girlfriend is getting married, and you’ve been put in charge of planning the bachelorette party.  You’re simultaneously thrilled and stressed.  You know it has to be something more than just a get together at your place.  She wants to hit the town, for her last “big night out” with the girls.  You know a good restaurant, with a nice bar.  You know her favorite club, and you know who’s going.  But what about getting there?

bachelorette_limo_02

You could call a taxi, but how will you all fit?  And a cab driver pulling up to the club isn’t exactly a glamorous image, is it?

How about one of those amateur phone app car services?  Hmm… is that how you want to make an entrance at the club?  Plus you all want to ride together.

Less Stress at the Airport?

You know, in one way or another, we all dread the trip to the airport these days.  Once we’re on the plane, everything is good, but it’s getting there, and dealing with all the hassles of traffic, parking, check in and security that really put a damper on the fun.

Limousine Gifts? Sure!

Always going with the traditional route can be boring! Be spontaneous; make it a surprise/gift that will be remembered.  Spoil someone with an experience they will forever be thankful for.  Yes, there are cheaper alternatives, but when you reserve with ABC Limo Services, be assured that the gift recipient will be treated like royalty.

Gift what?  Give the gift of a ride.  What kind a ride?  You decide.

Here are a few ides to get you started.

Lincoln_MKT_interior

Transfer service is a ride from point a to point b.  Gift a ride to/from the airport, spa, horse race, game (football, basketball, whatever you like).  You don’t necessarily need to pay for the entire time of your event.  Ask for transfer service!

cadillac-escalade-white
Cadillac Escalade super stretch SUV limo

The other option would be to gift hourly service. Get your friends or family the gift of hourly service in any of our luxurious Washington DC limousines.

Hourly service is when you keep the vehicle for a duration of time. People use this for various types of events such as birthday parties, Prom, Mother/Father’s day, surprise for the fun of it, anniversaries, weddings and much more.

Adding to the gift of transportation.  That’s right, it doesn’t have to stop with transportation.  Want to have flowers in the car upon arrival?  Want a special bottle of wine or champagne?  No need to worry, we will get it for you and have it waiting in the limo.

Other ides could be decorations, balloons or special treats.  Whatever it is, we will gladly pick it up for you and have it ready for our passengers.  All you have to do is ask when you book your limousine.

Hummer_H2_limo

Prom Limousines – Help!

As we write this, Prom season is rapidly approaching, and will be here before you know it.  Here at ABC Limo Services, we find that when it comes to Prom limos, there is a great deal of confusion for those young people looking to rent one.  With this article, we’ll try to break it down a bit, and hopefully steer you in the right direction.

prom_limo_08

 

Prom is a big part of the whole high school experience.  And with that, comes a lot of decisions and choices.  What dress to get? What tuxedo to wear? What about pictures?  After party plans?  A hotel?  The best advice we can give here is talk to your friends, and parents.  And plan early!  Don’t wait for the last minute.  Any vendor related to proms is likely to sell out / book up quickly.

prom_limo_09

When it comes to choosing the right prom limousine, start with the basics.  How many couples are there?  What’s your budget?  How long do you need the vehicle?  Once you’ve figured those things out, you can begin to look at your choices.

Luxury Limo / Party Bus

If you have a very large group (30 – 40), you’re going to have quite a party!  Take a look at our luxury limo/party bus options.  You can stand up inside, and it includes all the things you’ll find in a regular limo, like high end stereo, video and specialty lighting.

For smaller groups (8 – 10), something like the Lincoln MKT would be an excellent choice.  Luxury interior, top end audio and video, fiber optic lighting, you can’t go wrong with the MKT.

Need something in between?  Consider the Cadillac Escalade or Hummer H2 super stretch SUV limos.  More capacity than the MKT, but not as giant as the full on party bus, these luxury limos will get you there in style… and turn a few heads when you arrive.

Spring Wedding Plans?

OK, so as we write this, it’s in the heart of winter.  Then why are we talking about a Spring wedding?  Because, if you or someone you know is planning one, you need to start working on it right now!  Popular venues book early, as do photographers and of course, limousines.

spring_wedding_01

Obviously we all know waiting until the last minute to do just about anything usually results in worry, stress, and possibly bad decision making.  And it usually ends up costing you way more than you budgeted.  This is especially true when it comes to wedding planning.  Pick your venue early, make the food, beverage and cake arrangements, get your dress and/or tuxedo fitted and reserved, choose your flowers and photographer, and don’t forget the limo!

wedding-cake

Depending on the size of your party, you may only need one limo for your wedding.  But keep in mind you don’t necessarily want the entire wedding party in one vehicle – especially before the actual ceremony.  Often times people will get a stretch limo for the bride and groom, and an additional SUV or van to transport family, groomsmen, bridesmaids etc.  Choosing the right combination can be tricky, but a quick look at our limousine fleet should get you off to a good start.

Once you’ve your limousine arrangements, and planned who gets picked up where and when, you can check one more thing off your list, because Spring will be here before you know it.

Luxury transportation doesn’t have to be complicated, nor outrageously priced.  We have a wide variety of limos to choose from.  And we’re available 24/7 365 to answer any of your wedding limousine questions.  Give us a call or visit our website for more information.  And pick your perfect Washington DC wedding limo today.
