Trip Tips When Renting a Limo

Have you ever felt concern when making a purchase online?

Maybe you’ve asked yourself:

*Is this company legitimate?
*Is this less expensive product or service of equal quality to another of greater cost?
*Will my friends and family be safe in the care of this Chauffeur?
*What are the standards of maintenance for the limo I’m renting?

Such questions and hesitation occurs on what should be a day to look forward to; a day of ease, guided by a professional chauffeur, and driving in a well maintained limousine. With the ease of online marketing available to just about anyone today, there appears to be numerous opportunities to purchase the same item or service at various costs all over the web.

So what should you be considering when selecting a limousine company?

The Public Utilities Commission (PUC) is a State of California business that regulates privately owned companies such as electric, natural gas, telecommunications, water, railroad, rail transit, and passenger transportation companies such as limousine operators. It is with these standards that you should consider when looking for a limousine for hire.

*A properly registered limousine company cannot advertise without a PUC permit, and that permit number must be in the advertisement.

*You can check the PUC status of any company by calling the Commission at 1-800-877-8867 or visit the Consumer Information Center HERE or go directly to the Transportation Carrier Lookup HERE.

*Passenger Carriers are required to file evidence of one or more types of insurance coverage to secure and maintain active operating authority or registration.

*PUC regulated carriers must provide evidence of a controlled substance and alcohol testing program for their drivers.

*Any for-hire passenger carrier that employs workers in its operation must submit evidence of workers’ compensation coverage.

*Take a peek at the PUC 10 Roads to a Smooth Ride with this link or in this pdf for more information on regulations and considerations.

Shop around to find the company that best suits the needs of your special occasion and rest assured you’re in good hands with a company that upholds the legal PUC standards.
