Commom Limousine Questions-Answers

We recently received an email from a client that we felt could potentially be very useful to anyone interested in booking a Limousine or Party Bus.

Hi. Thank you for your response. The 10 person stretch limo sounds like exactly what i'm looking for. My plan is to surprise my wife that evening and go pick up 4 other couples. Hopefully that isn't a problem for the driver to run around a little. I will get addresses for the driver prior to that evening. I have a couple questions for you, does our time start when the first people are picked up or when you leave the "yard/shop"? And the same for dropping off the last couple?  Also if I plan on 6:00 to 12:00 and people want to continue later in the evening, is that a possibility and is the rate the same?  My last question is with the limo, is it set up with rows of seats or one big open seat? I don't want rows. I want a nice open limo so we can all interact.  Oh and alcohol.... I assume its ok if we bring some beverages with us for the "ride".....
Thank you for your time....

 Northwest Limousine Service Response:
 Good Afternoon,
Thank you for getting back to us. We love doing surprises! I'll get right to answering all the questions you have for me... It's definitely not a problem to run around a little or even alot, that's what we get paid for. Our time does not start until we pick you up and is complete when you are dropped off. We do not charge any "incidentals" like other companies may ie. extra 20% for driver tip, fuel surcharge, travel time... Nothing "extra" is charged for your service in Whatcom County besides our rate. The tip for the driver is not included but completely left up to you and how you felt they did their job. The time you are requesting sounds perfect in the instance you may need more time because it will be unlikely for us to book any other reservations for that vehicle after midnight. The rate would just continue until your party is finished. The Limos do not have any row seating, I have attached a couple pictures of the interiors of the Limo your requesting and another of the Party Bus in case you feel you'd like more room. The limo requested can get a little tight with 10 passengers although that is the capacity. And yes, ALCOHOL is welcome for anyone over the age of 21. We look forward to booking your reservation. We just need to finalize the details of your itinerary and charge your credit card for the first hour as a deposit then we can send your reservation confirmation.
Thank you,

Event Planning

 A limousine, party bus or even town car may be just the right option to send your event over the top. From weddings and wine tours to birthday parties and sporting events. There are so many details to consider when planning your special events. We've compiled a list of some of the details to consider when planning your party. Furthermore we've supplied a list of some of the preferred contacts our experience has blessed us with along the way.

Where is the party?
How many people will be invited?
Will we be sending invitations?
Where is the venue going to be?
What will our guests be eating?
What will we be drinking?
Is the entertainment provided?
How are we going to decorate?
Are we organizing any activities?

It's no wonder the transportation or even the last minute details like parking tend to get overlooked... In our experience we've had the pleasure of providing limousine service to a large number of events. In Whatcom County, Skagit County, Snohomish County or Even King County there are an almost infinite number of services to use. It seems thumbing through the yellow pages have definitely become a thing of the past. Throughout this time we've put together a list of preferred contacts, whether we've worked with them first hand or they were recommended by our friends. Sometimes it's in the smaller cities of Lynden, Blaine, Birch Bay, Ferndale, Everson, or Even Sedro Woolley that these recommendations come from because they may not have been discovered yet by the general public. These recommendations can be used for planning a birthday party or quinceanera, wedding, wine tour, concert, sporting event, prom or homecoming dance, bachelor and bachelorette party.

These are the recommendations that might just be what you need to help plan that perfect event!
