LIMOUSINES AND PROM NIGHTS

Springtime in America means a lot of things to a lot of people, but none so much as prom night to the seniors on their final year of high school. Every year Millenium Limos gets many calls for this nationwide event, and for nearly three months we get hundreds of calls from seniors looking to travel to their prom in a limo. Back in the day, each couple would take their own car to the event, but since the mid-90s the popularity of limos jumped up to a whole new level. It seems that every senior in America, makes their arrival more important than the dance itself. It seems that hiring a limo is now the first thing that comes to mind when the dance is announced.

However, beware! Many parents prefer having their kids take a limo and back, since it is safer and much more fun. As the saying goes, getting there is half the fun.  Hiring a reputable, licensed company is therefore a must. I urge you not to trust Yelp or any online review sites, since they are not regulated and many companies write their own 5 star reviews, and give the competition a 1 star, childish but true. You should only trust the Consumer Affairs Office of the county in which you live, and the State Consumer Affairs to get the right information. Those three agencies are regulated, and their records are 100% real.

Once you have chosen a limo company, it is recommended that you also check if their drivers or chauffeurs are licensed to drive such vehicles as limousines. The license in question is called a Hack License. Keep in mind that in order to obtain a hack license, the county does a criminal background check on the driver, and his or her driving history. Also verify that the company in question has the proper permit to operate in the county in which you live – ask for their permit number. Next, ensure the limo company is properly insured. God forbids; should anything happen to any of the passengers, you will be responsible for any medical bills if the limo company does not have adequate insurance coverage, so protect yourself and your children.

At Millenium Limos, all of our chauffeurs are fully licensed and we have the best ratings with Consumer Affairs offices. We are very real, fully and properly insured – all of our vehicles, big and small, enjoy the best insurance coverage.

Since the popularity of the Limos has exceeded many expectations and the groups of students are getting larger every year it seems, the popularity of the party buses is now undeniable. Arriving in a party bus and a limo has become the norm for all seniors all across the country.

Therefore, I would urge you not to wait until the last minute to hire the limo or party bus of your choice. During the “prom season” party buses and limousines are items in high demand everywhere across the nation. Unfortunately, limo companies that are not reputable or licensed will take your reservation and then, if they get a better-paying customer, they will act as if your reservation was never made through them. They will tell you that your booking was canceled since the information you gave them was wrong. Do yourself a favor and ask for a written contract with all the fees and make sure to stop by their office and view their limos.

Following is a list you should always have with you when ordering a limo for your children’s prom;


  • Ask to see the vehicles in person – We, at Millenium Limos, would welcome you to take a tour of our garage and to choose the limo or party bus that would suit your children’s prom night best.

  • Ask for License Number of the county you will be picked up – At Millenium Limos, we will show you our licenses and permits.

  • Get written contract with total price – We have contracts ready for your perusal and signature.

  • Ask for name of driver and ask for their Limo License number – We will introduce you to our drivers and will be pleased to show you their hack licenses.

  • Check with the county for their ratings and if there are any complaints – We would welcome you to check with all reputable agencies to verify our ratings and if we have been faced with any complaints.

  • Check with http://sunbiz.org/ to ensure the company is legit – Millenium Limos has been operating since 2001 now and has the best record in the business.


Ultimately, we, at Millenium Limos, will never ask you to pay anything in advance, such as some companies do. I recommend that you only deal with companies that will charge you the day of the service, and as far as paying a deposit, why?, demand to pay the day of the service after you see the vehicle and you are fully satisfied.

DOT for Party Buses and Limo Buses Nation Wide;


Now, for Party Buses and Coach Buses you need to contact the Department of Transportation, also known as D.O.T, and before calling them make sure to ask the limo company for their DOT number, and also make sure the driver has a CDL license and his medial card is up to date. Warning, if a Party Bus driver gets pulled over and it fails DOT inspection, or the CDL license is not good or the medical card is expired, expect a call from the DOT police to have you pick up your kids from the side of the road, since the bus will be towed and the driver arrested.

ARE ALL LIMO COMPANIES LICENSED?

If cost is a concern, so should common sense be as well. When reserving the limousine of your dreams or the party bus for the sortie of the year, too many people literally surf through dozens of websites looking for the best photo of the vehicle they wish to reserve. Not many people stop to think of what could be happening to their credit card details or their personal information once they filled the little box on the reservation form or once they have given the person on the other end of the line everything he or she asked for. In South Florida there is a significant number of companies which will take your personal data and sell it to the highest bidder. These thieves and fraudsters do not give two hoots whether you are expecting to see the limo of your dreams stop in front of your door next Saturday or whether you’ve invited a dozen friends to join you for your bachelor party – all they want is to sell your financial information for a substantial commission. On the day of the party, or on the night when you want to take your fiancée to her favorite restaurant for her birthday, guess what? That beautiful white Cadillac Escalade ends up to be an old beat-up Excursion or Navigator, and instead of a party bus you’ll end up with a couple of small limos to accommodate your friends. The driver will be very sorry, of course, giving you the famous excuse that the vehicle you wanted or ordered broke down and the one in your driveway is the best they could come up with at the last minute.

And, if you try calling the office to complain, you soon find out the phone has been disconnected recently, or the limo company is not even the same company which took your reservation. No need to go further in your investigation – you’ll lose yourself in a maze of lies and fraudulent dealings.
Perhaps it is necessary at this juncture to tell you that the company who took your details down initially, is probably not licensed, not insured and doesn’t hold the required permits to drive their vehicles through any of the Florida counties.
Just imagine this: you picked a limo based on some gorgeous pictures the company posted online, and you gave your credit card information to an individual who you think is an employee of the enterprise that owns the vehicle you reserved. You did all that based on the beautiful photograph you saw displayed on their website. You did not even bother trying to find out if they’re located in Florida, permitted by each of the counties. Now, what about the driver behind the wheel? Is he licensed? Will you send your son and someone else’s daughter to their prom with a driver who might have a criminal record?  Well, based on your record thus far, the answer is yes. Companies that sell your information to other entities do not take the time to regulate these companies, so the chances of you putting your precious cargo in danger, are pretty high.
 
However, Millenium Limo is a regulated company; we own the vehicles we advertise. We do not display fancy photographs that have been photo-shopped or pictures of limousine in front of ice-capped mountains that do not even exist in Florida – no. You will notice that each of the vehicles have the same background, and not like other companies, you can come and visit our garage any time. Actually, we would love to give you a personal tour of our facility. Nothing dodgy or bogus about Millenium Limo. We are licensed, insured and hold permits allowing us to travel with you and your guests or family anywhere throughout Florida. In the Millenium Limo garage you will not only find brand new limousines to choose from, but also a company that has been around since 2001 with licensed, insured, fully trained, professional drivers. These chauffeurs are not only top of their ranks, but they are extremely knowledgeable – we only hire the best.
You need to trust the person at the wheel, so, give some serious thought before you choose the company who will drive you, your family and or your friends to your next event.

Q: What does a Limo and Comet ISON have in common? A: A memorable experience that will last you a life time

 

What better way to celebrate Christmas than traveling aboard one of our exquisite Millenium Limousines, watching the light displays throughout Miami, Fort Lauderdale or even South Florida? Perhaps one of the best reasons for doing so is the advent of Comet ISON traveling through our northern skies on the night of Christ’s birth. Between December 25 and 26, 2013 we will be witnessing the most incredible event of the century – Comet ISON will grace our skies with its presence. It will be at its brightest when we celebrate the birth of Christ.


Is Comet ISON the biblical Star of Bethlehem?

“After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi[a] from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him” (Matthew 2:1-12).


It would be a night to remember for anyone who decides to welcome the Star of Bethlehem adorning our skies on the night of December 25, 2013 while riding aboard one of our most comfortable Millenium limousines. Whether you live in Miami, Fort Lauderdale or anywhere in South Florida, you could witness the memorable event of the century aboard one of our luxurious limos, while enjoying comfortable seating, beer and wine bar, even champagne if you wish.


Millenium limos expert staff and chauffeurs are at your disposal to take you where ever Comet ISON adorns the sky on the night of Christ’s birth.


Don’t hesitate.

Pick-up the phone or visit our website at www.milleniumlimo.com to reserve one of our fabulous limousines to take you on a tour of the Christmas light displays like you’ve never seen before.


Arnaldo Ricciulli’s personal comment:

“I believe there is some significance to this coming comet, as it will be an event that will create an impression in the skies.”

Bachelor & Bachelorette Parties – Spartan Style

 

Most of our traditions date back centuries. Our bachelor and bachelorette parties are no different. In the great city of Sparta, around the fifth century BC, the Spartan soldiers would gather around a dinner table to celebrate their friend’s departure into married life. During this lavish dinner, the soldiers would toast the future groom for his courage. Perhaps, these days a dinner would not at all suffice to honor the soon to be married friend. One has to guess that the Spartan soldiers didn’t have access to our Millenium limousines or party buses to take the groom on a night on the town anywhere in South Florida limo.

What we know as bachelor and bachelorette parties in North America are known as stag or hen parties in the UK, or bucks parties, bulls’ parties, and bucks’ night in other parts of the world. However, the parties of today generally include drinking at the clubs, trips to the strip club, gambling (usually on small money games like fruit machines), escort or private stripper services, and plenty of pranks. All of which could be accomplished in the comfort of one of our Millenium Limos or party buses. Our Millenium party buses or fantastic limos are all furnished with comfortable seating, beer and wine bars, Kareoke and Play stations – if you wish – and can take the party goers to where ever they want, such as night clubs, restaurants, strip clubs and bring everyone home safely when the night is over.

In most western cultures, the groom’s male siblings, such as did the Spartan soldiers twenty-five hundred years ago, are the ones making all the arrangements for their brother or friend’s bachelor party. The same goes for your upcoming bachelorette party. Whether you would like to take the future bride on a night on the town, visit night clubs, male strip clubs or have a fantastic night at the most lavish restaurant anywhere in South Florida, Millenium Limo will provide you with the ride of a lifetime.

Of course, we have come a long way from primitive toasts surrounded by a bunch of ruthless soldiers; you can now book a Millenium limo in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach or party bus and continue the tradition of celebrating your bachelor and bachelorette’s last day as a single person, in style.

Don’t let the Spartan tradition pass you by; our Millenium limo’s friendly staff can make all the arrangements necessary for your next bachelor or bachelorette party. You will have the choice between several of our latest and “baddest” limousines or party buses to accommodate your entire party, all of which you can hire at very affordable prices.

So, do give us a call or visit our website at www.milleniumlimo.com – we are at your entire disposal.

Safety is always first at Event Shuttle Service. One reason we chose the Mercedes Sprinters Van in Miami and Fort Lauderdale is for their top safety features.
