Most people only rent a limo a few times in their lives, so it is not surprising that most of us are not aware of the proper etiquette when renting a limo. So here are a few tips:

Try to avoid calling a company last minute; if you want quality, you need to reserve and book in advance.
Remember the chauffer is working hard to have you relax and enjoy the ride, do not be rude and/or disrespectful to the driver, treat him/her as you would want to be treated.
Do not stick any of your body parts out of the windows or moon roof. It will cost the company a hefty fine thus costing you the client as well.
Do not put more people into a limo aside from the number originally agreed upon. Quality companies will never allow overcrowding, it is dangerous, very uncomfortable, and not to mention dangerous and against insurance regulations.
Do not bring a cooler into the limo. All limos have a built in bars stocked with ice, water and sodas. Some limo companies have a champagne and red carpet service upon arrival. *Make sure to ask, never assume that this is part of the service.

Have a definite date set before you call for inquiries. Time of year could reflect on a price quote.* Remember distance can also affect your limo rate.
Have a definite number of passengers
Call several companies, narrow your decision and then decide on the one that meets your price range and the one that you feel most comfortable with.
Use your instinct. If the person answering the phone sounds unprofessional, chances they are. Don't forget to get personal recommendations.
Ask if they have pictures or a web site where you can see their selection of vehicles.
Most important... DO HAVE FUN!!!!!! And enjoy your ride!
~Happy planning
