We’ve all had that night of turgid sobriety thrust upon us at this or that party or business gathering. For some reason, you agreed to be the designated driver, even though you’re pretty sure the role is harder than the homework help your babysitter is providing to your little one as you help clean John form accounting’s barf off the swanky club floor (and you, unlike the babysitter, are not getting paid).
For events where you really would like to sit back and relax in style, we recommend hiring a limo rental service. This booming but often overlooked industry rakes in over 11 billion a year, with limousine service and party bus rental split pretty evenly between business and pleasure purposes. Below are a few events that might warrant investment in a limo rental service:
1. The Inevitable Corporate Retreat
Many corporate outfits know that the nature of their day to day work is stressful, and so they will often shell out the big bucks on a party or two a year to help company employees blow off a little steam. In fact, business clients nation wide most often request stretch limos from their limo service, ensuring that the team stays together on the bar crawl and rides in style.
A lot of parents balk at the extra expense a limo rental service would cost for prom, especially since so many teens nowadays have their own rides. But a limo service or a shuttle service is a great way to make sure that your child’s prom begins and ends safely. Let’s be real; you can tell them not to drink all you want, but if even one teen in your child’s friend group gets behind the wheel under the influence, they are putting all the passengers in jeopardy. Maybe put your trust that night in a limo driver whose entire social capital isn’t based on how reckless they can behave on this important evening.
3. Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties
The maid or man of honor already have enough to do without policing car keys on the night before the Big Day. A limo rental service or a party bus can streamline the transportation issue for an event of this kind, so that all you and your posse have to worry about is how many stops are on the bar crawl or how many casino tokens to bet before your life is well and truly ruined.
What this really boils down to is, a limo rental service ensures that no one is having too much fun and then getting behind the wheel. Renting a limo also provides the added bonus of nobody getting into an alpha competition over how to read the GPS. Basically, a limo service subtracts headache and risk and adds more time to have fun. Considering you’d only rent a limo for a big event, isn’t that event worth doing perfectly?
