Prom Tips for Parents

limo-partiesProm night is one of the most anticipated nights on the teen calendar. From the moment your son or daughter find their date, to the moment he or she shows up at the door, every moment needs to count towards making the night both safe and special. Though you may worry about your child staying out late on prom night, hiring a chauffeured car for the most important social event of the year can transform the evening into an extraordinarily memorable, safe and enchanting time for your teenager — while offereing you the peace of mind to make it through!

5 Tips to Hiring a Limo for your Teenager’s Big Night:

  1. Talk to their friends early. The demand for transportation during the spring season can be overwhelming when so many others are chartering transportation for prom, graduation, and even weddings! Talk to their friends early and decide who will be in your limo group, so that you can book your reservations and get the vehicle you want.
  2. Allow time to take lots of pictures. If you want to have photos of prom night, plan for their friends to meet up for pre-prom at one location (make sure the limo company and the chauffeur have the address and directions).  You can even ask the driver to position the chauffeured vehicle to be a part of the shot.
  3. Give the transportation company a curfew. That’s right; the chauffeur will abide by any rules you set forth, and will make sure to pick up and drop off your kids at a designated hour. This is a great way ensure your kids make it home on time, no excuses.
  4. Set some ground rules. As the parent, you have the right to tell the transportation company what will and will not be tolerated in the vehicle. For example, you can ask that the chauffeur keep the privacy screen down for the entire ride, so that he/she has a full grasp of what your kids are up to. If any of your rules are broken, the chauffeur can turn the car around and bring your kids home.
  5. Remember to sit back and relax. A reputable company hires drivers with proper training and licensing. This professionalism helps ensure your teenager’s safety — and your own peace of mind.

Congratulations on Your Upcoming Wedding!

wedding-occasionsAvalon Limo wants your experience with chauffeured transportation to be a memorable one. We want you and your loved ones to experience the style and elegance our industry provides and we want your day to be perfect in every way. Here are some tips for choosing the best company and vehicle for your wedding:

  1. Determine the number of people you are transporting. Limousine companies typically quote the number of permitted passengers in their vehicles based on guidelines from the manufacturer. Typically, the manufacturer quotes a gross weight on the vehicle (FMVSS requirements) and a number of passengers based on 150 pounds per passenger. Unless you have extremely thin men in your party, booking the maximum number of people in the limousine will be extremely uncomfortable. For example, a six-passenger limousine is normally stretched between 65 and 70 inches. This is comfortable for four adults. So lesson #1 is do NOT book the limousine to its maximum capacity. Instead, rent a larger limousine or rent more than one limousine. We also have stretched SUVs, mini-coaches or other larger vehicles for carrying groups. Never underestimate how warm and uncomfortable formal clothing is and how much worse its wearers can feel in close quarters.
  2. Timing: Weddings do not normally go off with military precision. Rent the limousine for at least an extra hour beyond the expected schedule. Have the limousine come 15-30 minutes early to allow extra time for photographs. Receiving lines take 25 minutes per 100 people and photographers take much more time then you might expect. It is extremely stressful on everyone if you have left inadequate time for your charter.
  3. Limousine operators often have more than one event to service in a day. Do not assume you can add time to your charter on your wedding day. Spend a few dollars more so your chauffeured transportation is guaranteed for all of the hours you require.
  4. Visit with the limousine operator from whom you are renting the vehicle(s). Ask for references. Insist on a written contract within one week of leaving your deposit.
  5. As much as possible, keep alcohol out of the limousine. Drinkers — plus excitement and formal clothing — can be a recipe for disaster.
  6. Consider hiring a full-size sedan or other vehicle to be on hand as “designated driver” transportation for those guests who may not have used their best judgment during the wedding reception.
  7. Typically a chauffeur is tipped between 15 and 20 percent of the total charge. ALL chauffeurs prefer a cash gratuity. If the chauffeur has treated you well, tip him/her handsomely and be sure to call the owner. If the chauffeur has NOT delivered good service, inform the owner as well.
  8. Breakdown: Limousines are machines. They unfortunately get flat tires and hoses and seals rip like any other vehicle. Unless you rent a “backup vehicle,” most companies will have to scramble to transport you should there be a problem. Ask your limousine professional what system he/she has in the event of a problem.

The facts behind St. Patrick and his day

For many people, St. Patrick represents an excuse to wear green  on March 17, maybe go to a parade, and drink some Irish   whiskey. But who was St. Patrick in real life?

The most common belief is that he drove the snakes out of Ireland. Ireland probably never had snakes, though, and the myth may refer to Patrick’s efforts to stamp out the serpent imagery used by the Druids. He also may have used the three-leafed shamrock to illustrate the concept of the Holy Trinity to the people he was trying to convert to Christianity as a missionary in Ireland during the fifth century. Historians agree that Patrick was born in Roman-occupied Britain, the son of a Christian deacon. At age 16 he was captured and taken to Ireland, where he was a slave for six years. During this time, his Christian faith strengthened. One day, according to a letter he wrote about his early life, he heard a voice promising he would soon return home. Shortly afterward he escaped his captors and went back to his family. He later wrote that an angel appeared to him in a dream, telling him to return to Ireland as a missionary. Patrick went back to the land where he had been a slave to convert the Irish and to minister to those Christians living there.
