Tailgating with Le Limo at Summer Concerts and more

Posted by Michael Foilb on Tue, May 31, 2016 @ 09:00 PM

One of the great thing about summer in New England is the opportunity to enjoy a great outdoor concert in one of the area's great venues. Whether is Kenny Chesney, U2, Cold Play, or Justin Bieber at Gillette Stadium, Don Henley, Bryan Adams, Moody Blues or Idina Menzel at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion Boston, Nickelback, Rod Steward or OneRepublic at the Xfinity Center, or maybe Lady Gaga, James Taylor or Billy Joel at Fenway Park, there's an option for every musical taste.

Party buses are extremely popular at these events. We can provide you with luxurious vehicle, suitable for safe beverage consumption, for you to pregame in with your friends as you anxiously wait for the concert to begin! Our Celebrity Party Bus holds up to 40 people

Other great options in central Massachusetts include the DCU Center and Hanover Theatre:

The Hanover Theatre is gorgeous and hosts every type of show which includes concerts, comedy shows, plays, etc.  I personally have attended a concert at each of these venues and they all are great and provide a diverse schedule of events and concerts.

There are great options for nights out at Mohegan Sun Arena and the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods. And of course, there are entertainment options beyond the concert scene, sporting events, night out, bachelor/ette parties, sweet 16 parties and more.

Enjoy New England this summer.

7 Questions to Ask Before You Hire a Limo Company

Posted by Michael Foilb on Wed, Mar 18, 2015 @ 05:09 PM

Whether you need a sedan, an SUV, a limo, a party bus, or something else, you want to make sure your livery company meets, or ideally exceeds, your expectations. While you’re shopping around for a chauffeured ride, you need to ask companies other questions besides, “How much does it cost?” You want to pick a safe, reliable, comfortable option that suits your needs.

100_0950

  1. Do you use your own cars?

There’s a growing trend of web sites and apps that are basically just marketing companies that sell limo services. They will hook you up with a limo company, but there will likely be a commission added to your quote to pay those marketers. When you deal directly with the companies who own their own vehicles, you’ll likely pay less.

  1. What vehicles are in your fleet?

The average livery company in Massachusetts has 5 cars. So if you’re looking for a party bus, Mercedes Sprinter, limo, specialty car or another option, you want to ask and make sure that the company has the right ride for you.

  1. What do you do to insure my safety?

The most diligent companies have a variety of safety precautions that they go through. There are a multitude of state and federal guidelines that are required to insure that your ride is safe. From background checks and drug screening of the drivers to DOT adherence and commercial liability and collision insurance, you need to make sure that the company puts safety first.

  1. What services do you offer?

The best companies have an extensive fleet that can fulfill your every need. Whether you’re looking for upscale wedding service or a party bus for a night out, make sure that the company you hire is experienced in performing the logistics needed for your event. There’s a lot of nuance and details involved with a lot of the services. From prom and sporting events to sweet 16 and casinos, there are guidelines that need to be followed. For example, there are opportunities for comp pages at casinos, special treatment at nightclubs, red carpet rituals for the bride, etc. But only experience limo companies know how to sweat every detail to help you take advantage of the best opportunities.

  1. Do you have references?

Check out online review sites and ask friends. You can also do a quick search on the Better Business Bureau’s web site or check the company’s grade on Angie’s List. You may also want to check out testimonials online to see what kind of feedback the limo company gets from customers. Find out what others are saying.

  1. How are the cars maintained?

It seems obvious but taking care of the cars is expensive. And unfortunately, smaller struggling companies may try to cut corners in that area. Ask if they have a comprehensive maintenance program. Do they have their own mechanic? Is there a plan in place that insures thorough upkeep and repairs for all vehicles?

  1. How long have you been in business?

Only companies with experience can offer you the in-depth attention to detail that can provide you with a first-class, worry-free ride. Focusing on every detail of your trip requires the limo company to understand the finer points of providing service excellence. You want a company that will help you Return to an Era of Unparalleled Luxury.

Of course Le Limo is in the top echelon when it comes to providing these assurances. Since 1986, we’ve been setting the bar for luxury by using our own fleet of vehicles that are maintained to exceed government guidelines. We’re proud of our reputation for being the best, give us a call at 800-287-8970 and we’ll prove to you how Le Limo does things better.

Live the Limo Life

Posted by Michael Foilb on Fri, Jun 13, 2014 @ 12:55 PM

Some of Le Limo’s newest advertising includes the catchphrase, “Live the Limo Life™.” But what does it mean? Basically, we want to make sure you know that it’s good to pamper yourself. To Live the Limo Life is all about seizing the day and splurging on yourself, enjoying the spoils of luxury. To Live the Limo Life means that you’re living life to the fullest and indulging in a lifestyle that (at least occasionally) returns you to an era of unparalleled luxury.

Live the Limo Life

Living the limo life is not just about renting a limousine, it’s about taking advantage of today. It’s about recognizing that you deserve luxury. You're worth it. Buy yourself a bottle of champagne, spend on an elegant dinner at an exquisite restaurant, order some top shelf liquor. Of course, you still need to live responsibly; you still need to save for tomorrow; but you can also live for today.

Fill each day with joie de vivre, style and elegance. But luxury is not just about spending money; luxury is about quality and, sometimes, luxury is free. Luxury detests haste, slow down, enjoy a good cup of coffee or a glass of fine wine.

To Live the Limo Life is not about quantity, it’s not about over indulgence; it’s the quality that matters. Hang out in nice places. Pass time in luxury hotel lobbies or on the dock at the yacht club. Spend time in art museums not fast food places.

To Live the Limo Life is about watching a great classic movie, reading a great book, buying yourself a high style magazine. Fill your home with fresh cut flowers or buy a set of fine linen napkins.

To Live the Limo Life is about enjoying the rewards of life.

Of course, you can ride in a limousine. And yes, at Le Limo we have a vast fleet of Sedans, Party Buses, SUVs, Mercedes Sprinters, Stretch Limousines, a Vintage Rolls Royce, Stretch SUVs and a Custom Built Trolley. But the Limo Life is more than that. You need to believe that you deserve to live a life of luxury and elegance. You only live once, when you’re ninety years old you should be able to toast yourself and say, “to my life, it's been well done.”…so Live the Limo Life.

Issues with Rogue Car/Limo Ride Apps

Posted by Michael Foilb on Mon, May 05, 2014 @ 03:27 PM

The new hot "trend" in the transportation world is the proliferation of rogue app ride-service companies. But while these companies are winning customers, they are stepping away when problems arise with their clients. When you hire their service, whether it’s a sedan or a limo, your payment goes to the app company, but to quote one of the bigger companies:

The provision of the transportation services by the Transportation Provider to you is…(an) agreement to be entered into between you and the Transportation Provider. Uber shall never be a party to such agreement.

Uber

So you book your ride and then the app company, the company that picks your driver, then tells you that they “shall never be a party to such agreement!” They’re saying they'll set up your ride, but they’re not responsible for it. That’s like the going to the hospital and having administrators say, “We’re not responsible for anything that happens between you and the doctor.”

So what do you do if something goes wrong? While negative incidents and lawsuits begin to pile up in the future because of the lack of proper insurance, driver qualifications, and vehicle safety, where does that leave the customer? There have been multiple reports of criminal charges against drivers. Do you think the app company is going to help you?

In Boston a licensed taxi cab medallions is valued at $600,000. Is it reasonable that these app companies don’t have to compete in that same space? Uber in Boston has been issued a cease and desist order by Division of Standards of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts which stated “until the National Institute of Standards and Technology has guidelines in place for GPS location technology,” the company cannot provide their application to the public.

Uber has ignored the state order.

In Cambridge, Uber drivers have been issued citations for operating an unlicensed livery service and for using a measuring device not conforming to state standards.

That said, there are several high quality livery companies that do take bookings from the rogue app companies. Just make sure you know what you’re getting. With the new ride share programs, anyone with a driver’s license and insurance can accept work from the app folks.

At a recent industry conference, one limo company president said, “I never thought the government would allow these companies to operate with commercial insurance policies. These companies will look you in the eye and lie (about their operations) and they haven’t come forward to be fully transparent … we have to get the facts out there,” he added.

Industry insiders predict that when the government sees that these rogue app companies operate illegally, don’t have the proper insurance or licensing, they will realize that they made a mistake and there will be changes.

So far there has been no intervention and no enforcement of law, so these companies are operating without proper insurance; they do not have driver training requirements or vehicle safety standards. There are DOT, DPU and MassPort guidelines designed to protect the passenger. There are rules about passenger limits, emergency escape hatches, fire extinguishers, drug testing, OSHA guidelines and more. Le Limo abides by those laws. We have professionally-trained drivers who are randomly drug screened. The drivers are our employees and they are in the sedans, limos and party buses that we own.

Without change, there will be a race to the bottom with price wars and no standards. We would like to think that safety and professionalism will be a key component of making sure limousine companies work the way they are supposed to.

Even though you don’t expect to be involved in an accident, make sure that you’re making smart safe choices when you get a ride.

The recognition, the WeddingWire Couples' Choice Awards 2014 and The Knot Best of Weddings 2014, are for exceptional wedding transportation.  The awards recognize only elite wedding professionals who demonstrate superior quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism.

Limo Safety

Posted by Michael Foilb on Wed, May 15, 2013 @ 03:34 PM

Unfortunately, there have been a lot of stories in the news lately about limousine safety. We recognize that this is a major concern for all our customers and frankly, it is why we make it a top priority.

At Le Limo we do things a little bit differently than some of our competitors. We typically don’t boast about our safety record and procedures, we think it should be part of the expectation of hiring a limo company. But since it’s been in the news we wanted to share some of the aspects of our safety procedures.

Every Le Limo party bus, every limo, every trolley and every coach is equipped with a fire extinguisher. All of our buses have been designed with an emergency exit. We go through a stringent review process with the Department of Transportation. It is part of our corporate philosophy to exceed their minimum safety requirements. We don’t cut corners on safety…not even a little bit.

Our drivers visually inspect the fleet prior to every run to ensure that everything is in operating as designed. Le Limo is one of the only limousines in the state that has its own in-house repair shop. We have certified mechanics making repairs as needed based on a feedback from our drivers.

Drivers are prohibited from drinking alcohol prior or during their assigned run. Le Limo performs random and unannounced drug tests on drivers sporadically throughout the calendar year to ensure that they are not under the influence of any narcotics.

Each month every car goes through a thorough safety inspection and routine maintenance is performed per the manufacturer’s guidelines. Tires are routinely inspected for tread wear and changed regularly with our equipment in-house.

We just don’t think safety should be your concern when you hire a limousine. We think it should be our concern.
