Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Low price means something and many, many times it is not good.

The car could be an older, boxy model, smoked in, the person driving is not a chauffeur but a bus or van driver.
They might not show up if they double book and get a better price from another client (a very common compliant).

So be cautious when looking for the" lowest price". You just might get it.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. Limousine Service Etiquette

When planning for and riding in a limousine there are a set of simple rules you need to follow to have a successful and pleasant experience.

First is your safety. Reputable limousine companies will not transport more persons than the vehicle is designed for. It is very dangerous to overload a limousine; both from seat belt availability and from increasing the stopping distance required due to the added weight. Accidents will and do happen most often when a vehicle is overloaded.

Plus it is against the law. It is always recommended that you book the proper size limousine to meet your needs or a higher seating capacity limousine for more space if you have large bodied or tall persons in your group.

Please respect the limousine as your own. The vehicle costs close to $65,000 to $165,000 each and they need to be in perfect condition for your entertainment. We do our best to make your experience as fun and pleasant as possible, but need you to understand we cannot and will not tolerate any threat of damage or injury.

You are also responsible for all lost or damaged glassware so please do not carry away any drinks when exiting the vehicle (a common problem at beach weddings and pub crawls).

Remember, we have another client ready to use the vehicle after your service is complete and we must get it ready for their service. So don't trash the vehicle, causing us to end your service prematurely and you facing stiff clean up penalties of upwards of $150 -$350.

Next is privacy during your service. It is the chauffeur's discretion as to whether the privacy window is up or down for safety's sake. Newlyweds or romantic service is more likely to ask for privacy; Prom and large groups are less likely. The chauffeur needs to be able to observe the mood of the guests and maintain safety for all. Please don't be offended if they deny your request for they have your best interests at heart.

Obey the law. Just because you are not driving, doesn't give you added privileges for criminal acts. These include underage drinking, drug use, exposing yourself, sexual activity, and standing through the sunroof just to name a few common acts. If caught, you will be held accountable for your or your party’s actions. We want you to have fun, but in a safe and controlled manner.

Most limousine companies have a strict policy; if the customer abuses its rules, they have the right to terminate the service at that point (you might be dropped at that location wherever it is and need to get other transportation) and you will be billed for the full amount of the service per your reservation.

So not only is it stupid, but it is very costly to allow anyone in your party to get out of control. Treat your service with respect and use common sense.

Smoking is not permitted in any limousine unless the vehicle is so designated. No exceptions.

Finally, don't leave valuables, especially cell phones, in the limousine when it is on stand by. We cannot take responsibility for theft or loss of any personal items.

It is OK to ask your chauffeur to leave a purse or laptop computer in the vehicle as you exit for a stop. However, it is recommended they be locked in the trunk for safe keeping as the chauffeur will be cleaning up your vehicle during the stop and is uncomfortable with any personal item being in the vehicle at that time.

We do have a lost and found if you do happen to accidentally leave something behind, but a quality chauffeur will check the vehicle as you exit to ensure nothing is there.

It is a good idea for you to check you have your cell phone, purse too, as things do fall behind the seat, blend in with the surroundings (black phone on black seat) or are placed in a hidden area to be discovered later.

Remember, your chauffeur will be friendly, professional, and accommodating and really appreciates you and your party respecting him/her with the proper etiquette of your limousine. We are here to make this a most enjoyable experience and look forward to serving you.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. Meeting new and serving our repeat clients. We pride ourselves on exceeding their expectations and building long lasting relationships. It is special to grow to know their families or to discuss world affairs and politics when time allows.

That can only come from having long term chauffeurs as we have developed with 10 to 28 years of experience, who can be assigned to a particular client. It is rare in the industry to find a company with such long term employees such as Your Maitre D Limousine.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. The capacity of the limousine, the price and minimum hours of service, plus what form of deposit is required and is it refundable.

We offer sedans to stretch limousines for different size parties. Price is based on the number of passenger and there is normally a 3 hour minimum, as a professional chauffeur will not work for less then the minimum.

As to the deposit, we are not a transportation company, but a pure limousine service and do not require a contract nor deposit. Most require a minimum deposit of $200 to $500 and a signed contract. The amount is usually not refundable.

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. Make sure they are a licensed vendor. They should be able to provide you with a TCP Number and you can check with the state to see if they have a valid license and if they have any investigations for violations. Sad to say, but many outlaws think they can be a one car limo company and they create a bad name for our industry with their low level of service.
