Etiquette For A Limo Service – Residents’ Handy Guide

July 30, 2015

Comfort. Luxury. Professional service. These are but a few reasons why people take advantage of a limo service NJ locals included.

Today, a limo service is no longer limited to businesses who want to impress their clients, or for use in events like weddings, proms and bachelor parties. Limos are a viable alternative to taxis and many people have discovered these as the perfect way to add a touch of luxury and even romance for a trip to the city or out of town.

But whatever your reasons may be for getting a limo, if it is your first time, you may have a few questions swirling in your head, particularly about the proper etiquette. Here are a few tips that will answer your questions.

Prior to making reservations, it is worthwhile to know beforehand how many passengers will be coming along for the ride. This will allow you to choose the right vehicle that will ensure the safety and comfort of all those who are riding the limousine.

Limo drivers have been trained to provide unparalleled service to clients. You can expect nothing less than professionalism and courtesy, right from the time they pick you up until you reach your intended destination. As such, expect your limo driver to open and close the car doors for you as well as those who are riding along with you. If you are going to an airport or if you are carrying luggage with you, the driver will load and unload your items for you.

If you are hiring a limo because your business is trying to impress a potential client, it is worthwhile to know how to enter the limo and where to sit down. The best way to enter a limo is to sit down upon entering and move or slide over to allow other passengers to take their seat. Never enter a limo by stepping in as this leaves your rear up in the air, making it awkward for other passengers about to enter the vehicle.

Leave the best seats for the VIP. In a limo, this would be the one nearest to the curb, at the right side. Do not let your valued guest take the jump seat or the back middle seat as these are less comfortable spots inside a limo.

While your driver is committed to ensuring your comfort and safety(and some of them will go the extra mile to provide these), do not expect them to bend the law for you, including committing minor infractions like breaking the speed limit.
