Pizza & Limos?

One of the most frequent questions we get at 800 Limo Ride is “How many people can fit in a limo?”. This is a rather loaded question. It’s akin to asking your local pizza parlor “How many slices are in your pizza”? Without knowing the SIZE of said pizza, the number of slices is hardly relevant. If they offer a 16 inch pizza, whether it’s cut into 10 slices or 52, it’s the same amount of food. Same with a limousine; the number of passengers depends on which limo you are asking about, and the size and configuration of that limo.

So, when you call a limousine service, the best course of action is to simply tell them “I need a limo for “X number of people”, followed by the simple question “What are my options?”. This will get the ball rolling, and the representative on the phone would then be able to go over the various vehicle types, configurations and capacities.

They may ask if you prefer a traditional ‘sedan-based’ limousine, such as the Chrysler 300 or Lincoln Town Car, a cross-over limousine, such as the Lincoln MKT, an SUV limousine, such as the Cadillac Escalade (shown above), or the Hummer H2. Depending on the fleet of the service, you may also be offered a van-based limo like the Mercedes Luxury Coach, or a limousine based on a bus platform, like the Limo / Party bus.

Some of the choices offer the ability to stand up, some offer toilets, all offer luxury seating, bar, fiber optic lighting and high end digital entertainment systems. Your choice at this point is based on your personal preferences, and/or the recommendations of the service provider.

Hopefully using these tips, and taking the time to do a little research on the fleet(s) of the services you are considering, you will be able to come to the most informed decision possible, and snag the perfect limo for your event. And maybe on the way you can ask the chauffeur to pull over for some pizza. Whether that’s a slice or a whole pie… that’s up to you! But you may want to offer your driver some, as that’s just rude to fill a car with the smell of pizza and keep it all to yourself!

Happy Birthday, Mom!

OK, let’s say your mom’s birthday is coming up. Maybe it’s a “milestone” birthday like 50, or 75. Sure, you want to throw her a party, or take her to dinner, but it feels like something a little extra is needed. And naturally, that’s where we come in.

happy-birthday-mom

Sure, make reservations at one of her favorite restaurants, get her friends together, and arrange the “setup”. Invite mom over, telling her you’re going to take her and dad out for a birthday dinner – but leave the part about her friends and the limousine out. On the big night, have mom and dad drive over to the house, and come inside. The limo can be hiding a couple blocks away. The driver can pull up out front when mom isn’t paying attention. Then you can ask mom to come outside with you because you want to ask her opinion about something in the garden, or whatever. When she walks out, the chauffeur is there waiting, door opened (with optional red carpet and flowers – up to you), ready to whisk mom, dad and the rest of the family off to the restaurant.

Of course, when you arrive at the restaurant, all of your mom’s friends can be there waiting to surprise her! Then it’s dinner, drinks, cake and celebration time. And when the night is over, you’ve got the limo waiting outside, ready to take you, mom and the family back home. It will be a night she’ll never forget. And that’s the kind of night every mom deserves, at least once in their life.

Knott’s Berry Farm Done Right

A Southern California staple for nearly a century, Knott’s Berry Farm began in 1920’s, literally as just that… a berry farm.  Later a chicken restaurant was added, which brought in the crowds, leading Mr. Knott to begin construction of the ghost town, continuing adding more and more attractions up to the present day.

Knott's Berry Farm 1

Today it’s a major amusement park, and a great place to take the family for a day of fun – with less of the crowds you’ll find at competing Disneyland and Magic Mountain.

So, how do you get there?  Fill the minivan with the family, and a few of your children’s friends?  Now that doesn’t sound like fun.  Why not rent a limo?  What better way to get there (and give the kids something to remember and talk about)?  Plus, no need to worry about traffic, parking, getting there, and finding the car when you’re bone tired at the end of the day.

knotts-01

There are many options when it comes to limos.  If you have a group smaller than 8, you may want to consider a classic Lincoln Town Car stretch limousine or Chrysler 300 stretch limo.  They can hold 8-10 passengers, and have all the amenities to keep the kids (and the adults) happy on the road.

If you have a larger group of 10 or more, you may want to consider a Cadillac Escalade super stretch limousine, or a Mercedes Luxury Coach.  There will be plenty of leg and head room in these vehicles, and all the amenities you’ll find in the smaller limousines.

Knott's Berry Farm 2

If your group is even larger than that (God help you when you get to the park!), you may want to try a super stretch Hummer H2, or a full sized party bus.  Either of these vehicles will turn heads and get attention.  And trust us… your kids won’t soon forget the trip!

Whichever vehicle you choose, you can choose to keep the same vehicle for the entire day, having the option to leave personal belongings in the car (jackets, water, snacks, cameras), or save money, and simply have one limo take you there and drop you off, and another pick you up and take you back at the end of the day.

Knott's Berry Farm 3

If you aren’t sure what the best option for your group would be, feel free to give us a call 24/7, and one of our reservationists will help you pick the right plan and type of limo rental for your budget and needs.  Or submit your free limo price quote request online to get started.  And then get ready to enjoy Knott’s Berry Farm!

Corporate & Executive Transportation

Let’s face it… for most people, a limousine brings to mind a wedding, or maybe a prom.  Or perhaps just a happy couple smiling while popped through the sunroof cruising The Sunset Strip or Hollywood (technically illegal, but we won’t get into that now).   And while it’s true that all of these are in fact uses for a limousine, what often gets overlooked when it comes to luxury transportation is executive and corporate transportation.

 

services1

It could be a ride to or from Orange County or LA airports, perhaps a day-trip to several business meetings, or maybe something fun, like a night out for the office staff to celebrate winning over a big client.  Sure, for the most part, an executive isn’t going to care about booming sound systems or fiber optic lighting, so our fleet has a variety of understated luxury sedans and stretches to fit any taste.  And if the big office party thing does happen, we have 40 passenger limo buses that will fit the bill – as flashy or subdued as needed.

Fleet_cover_02

In most cases, it’s airport transportation and meetings.  And what executive wants to ride in a smelly cab when he can arrive in style and comfort in a professionally driven luxury sedan or SUV?  There are even hybrid vehicles available if you need or want to make a green impression with your clients.
