Limo Services in Sarasota Fl
Limousines are expensive, so you can imagine the cost for a fleet of limos. With travel time and vehicle preparation a simple 1 hour pick-up & drop-off actually consumes 3 hours of time for the limo company. Sarasota limo services, (all limo services) understand this and require a 3 hour minimum rental for weddings – you can’t get around it. Find Sarasota Limos listed here in our Limo directory.
When To Start Limo Shopping?
It’s good to start shopping for your Sarasota limo service 6 to 9 months ahead of the wedding date. There are exceptions to the rule however. If the wedding is planned in the busy spring months you’ll want to shop for your limo service a full year out. Why? It’s a supply and demand issue. The spring months bring many weddings as well as all of those high school proms and dances.
The spring months are usually very busy months for all of the Sarasota limo services. And if you wait too long in booking your spring wedding limo – the selection of limos available might be very limited. Also – prices may be higher by 10% – 30% during the spring months – so book early.
What’s The Cost For Sarasota Limo Service?
Sarasota Limo Services have a 3 hour minimum rental for weddings. Limo services don’t do 1 hour pick up and drop off services for weddings.
Wedding Limo service packages usually range from $300 to $400 but that depends on your choice of vehicle. The more unusual vehicles, like SUV limos, are more expensive and might rent out as a 3 hour wedding package at $450 to $700 or more.
Do I Pay While The Limo Just Sits There?
Yes – Even when the limo sits for a couple hours it’s your rental and you’re paying. The limo company can’t schedule another job while you’re getting married – can’t take that kind of a chance.
This is why everybody gets a 3 hour wedding rental – minimum.
Will Everybody Fit in The Limo?
If you have a large wedding party everybody might not fit into the limo. Some of the SUV limos might fit 12-14 people, but don’t forget they also cost more.
Even when limos say that they fit 12-14 people – it doesn’t mean that the limo will fit everybody comfortably. When everybody is dressed-up up for a wedding you’ll be more comfortable if their is a little extra room to move around in the limo.
My rule of thumb – if the limo service says the vehicle fits (X) number of people – I always subtract (-2) to get a more realistic & comfortable number.
Should I Get Something in Writing?
Yes – Get something written up that will serve as a contract. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy but… it should cover all the details.
Unfortunately most limo services don’t do contracts and they should. Spell out in writing what is expected of the limo service that you hire – it’s important.
