Questions for Your Teen’s Prom Limo Vendor

Ensuring Their Safety, Even When You’re Not Around

Since the day they were born, your child’s safety has been your number one concern. You’ve seen them through the bumps and bruises they get when learning how to walk and throughout their rambunctious childhood. Just because they’ve learned to be a bit more careful while navigating life on their own doesn’t mean you can’t still worry about them. This is especially true in regards to their transportation. Not just for a ride to and from school either. Prom night is supposed to be one of the best nights of their teen life. However, the statistics from over the years can leave most parents a little worried.

When you take into consideration the possibilities that kids can get into when they’re unsupervised on prom night, it may make you want to add an extra level of security for the evening. Now, we don’t mean hire a bodyguard for the night, rather, by reserving a chauffeured limousine for their prom transportation. Even though you won’t be around for the festivities, you’ll still be able to ensure their safety and increase the chances of them coming home safely.

How Much Insurance Do You Carry?

God forbid anything happen while your kids are in the hands of a chauffeur, but everyone knows you have to be prepared for the worst. When considering a Baltimore limo company for your teen’s prom night this year, make sure you ask about the amount of insurance they carry. The amount that Baltimore requires chauffeured vehicles to carry varies depending on the amount of passengers they can carry, but don’t exceed more than $500,000.

While some limo companies are happy to leave it at that, if you really want that extra protection, you may want to consider ZBest for your teen’s prom limo needs. They keep a $5 million policy on every single one of their vehicles. This will pretty much guarantee your teens are more than covered in the unfortunate event of an accident.

What Licensing Do You Require for Your Drivers?

Although the state of Baltimore requires that any passenger-for-hire vehicle is driven by a properly licensed driver depending on the number of passengers the vehicle they are operating can carry. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean they follow that law. When you think about it, you’re basically putting the lives of your children in their hands, so why wouldn’t you want to make sure they have met all the state requirements in regards to licensing? Don’t be afraid to ask and also require visible proof of said licensing. With ZBest, you can rest assured that every single one of our drivers is a properly licensed Maryland Public Service Licensed chauffeur and we make sure they stay up to date.

Will You Stay With my Kids?

A parent’s biggest fear on prom night is their child sneaking away and doing something they aren’t supposed to be doing. If they drive themselves, the temptation to do so is much stronger than when they’re being driven by an adult. Once you’ve made the decision to reserve a chauffeured limo or party bus for prom night, one of the biggest questions you need to ask is whether or not they’ll stay at the venue until the festivities are over. Not only will your kids always have a ride home, no matter what time they decide to leave, they’ll also be less likely to get into trouble.

Prom night is supposed to be an enjoyable event that every teen should experience. As a parent, we have to let them go and see a bit of freedom, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice their safety along the way. Call ZBest now to reserve a prom limousine for your teen before we’re all booked up. Everyone knows that prom season is a popular time for limos!
