Your first prom experience was either a nightmare, somewhere along the ranks of Carrie White’s scary ordeal in the film “Carrie.” Or it could have been something really dreamy, just like Laney Bogs’ after her full transformation in time for prom in “She’s All That.”Or perhaps something not so extraordinary yet still pretty memorable, much like Charlie Kelmeckis’ first high school dance experience in “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.”
Regardless of the fact that you barely skated through every prom you attended, or whether they sucked or were truly great and unforgettable experiences, you definitely want your teen’s own first prom to be memorable for all the right reasons. And one way you can help your teen with this is to hire a New Jersey limousine service.
When a limo picks up and drops off your teen in front of the school gym or wherever the venue is, however swanky the place may be, your child and his or her date or friends can arrive in style via the classiest ride you can find around area.
However, as a parent, the first thing that might come to your mind when you hear the word “limousine” is that this would be pretty expensive. After all, no limousine, especially a chauffeured one at that, will come cheap, even if you will just hire one for several hours. But if you follow certain tips, you can get a limo for your teen that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
Tip # 1: Have your teen talk to his or her peers and encourage them to ride in the limo you will hire for your child. Once a number of your teen’s friends express their desire to join in, talk to their parents and arrange a way for the total bill to be split fairly among yourselves. Your teen can go with his or her date and other couples, or with a large group of their other single friends. Either way, you get to split the bill for hiring the chauffeured limo and save a ton of money.
Tip # 2: Look around for different limo companies and get a price quote from each. A lot of these companies usually offer special deals and discounts during prom season. By doing some comparison shopping, you will get a wider range of prices to choose and you can find the lowest one that may be the deciding factor for choosing a good limo service provider.
Tip # 3: Ask your friends, relatives and co-workers if they have connections with a limo rental company, or if they have positive feedback about one. This would be a good way for you to ensure the quality of the limo you will hire and get the assurance that your teen will be in the safe hands of the best chauffeur. In addition, they may even be able to help you get more discounts, especially if they are long-time clients of the company that offers the limo services.
