Limo Service - Tips for Prom Parents
Some Helpful Tips for Prom Parents when Hiring a Limousine Service for Prom Night.
That time of year is fast approaching and prom night is getting nearer!
This can leave the parents of many teenagers feeling slightly nervous and even verging on the edge of panic...trying to figure out the best way to navigate a safe prom night for their teenager including limo rental requirements.
Anything from choosing the perfect dress, who they're going to hang out with and the best way to transport them to and from prom night, are just a few of the decisions that need to be made. Every parent wants to ensure that their teams big night out is memorable and great fun, but all the pitfalls and preparation that goes on the prom night can maybe feel overwhelming.
Phoenix Luxury Limo Service has been serving the Phoenix metropolitan area for many years, and we are well versed in handling reliable transportation and party bus rental for hundreds of Proms. After several decades in the business, we pride ourselves in knowing most of the pitfalls and strive to provide a superior service, by helping teens have a safe, good fun night with memorable times, but at the same time providing parents with a much needed peace of mind.
Below are just a few tips, to help put your mind at ease.
Take the time to sit down and have a really good talk with your teen.
Now, by no means are we suggesting you lecture your teen, but it's really to open up communication about the reality of prom night. Freely talking about everything that could potentially go wrong may not sound like a bundle of fun, but it's really important that you let them know your thoughts and concerns, while at the same time allowing your teen to express stairs.
One of the biggest issues we find is insuring you talk about topics like underage drinking and peer pressure before prom night. Please remember, it's only a conversation and you're not trying to intimidate them or ruin things before the big night...
Make a thorough note of the itinerary
Always make sure you have the full itinerary and schedule for the evening. Make sure you know the obvious things, like the address of the venue and its location, whether they'll be going straight there or via another venue, what time prom night and obviously ends, if they're coming directly home or again via another venue and if they're going out for a meal beforehand.
Communicate with the other parents
One thing that can make a huge difference on prom night, is getting to know the parents of your teen's date and friends and maybe speak to all of them. It's not a bad idea to draw up a couple of house rules - meaning lines that must not be crossed.
You know you can always say "No!".
Always remember you're the parent! For your teen this could potentially be the biggest night of their life so far. But you need to not be afraid to just say "no" to any request that don't sit well with you. As a parent, you know it's your responsibility to look out for their well-being, even if it means they may not look cool in front of their friends... coming home safely after a good fun night is the most important outcome for you and your teen.
Give him a great sendoff.
You've got to be there to see them off! Be it in their stretch limo or party bus rental - don't forget to take loads of pictures or even a video and tell them you won't be going to sleep until they've made it home safely. This last part is important, as it will allow them to make better decisions when they're out during the evening. Make the most of it as they're driven off in their limo rental.
Secure reliable transportation.
Let's be honest here, your teen doesn't really want you to drop them off with their date at the prom!
During such an important occasion and potentially the biggest night of your teen's life so far, leaving the subject of transportation to chance is not the best way forward. Here at Phoenix Luxury Limo Service, you can totally trust us, as we've been in the business many years and therefore truly have seen it all...
For example, we'll never forget, the frantic and angry parent who called us in a panic on the day of their daughter's prom, because the limo they booked didn't turn up. As luck would have it, we had the perfect stretch limo available and were able to help out immediately and save the day. Just imagine if you'd paid in full, the limo didn't turn up and you saw the look in your teens eyes...
A reputable and reliable limousine company is everything, trust us.
You may have never previously booked a limousine service. There are less savoury companies out there, who realise this and will take full advantage of the situation by quoting super low prices and then on the day, end up charging you for all sorts of extras - meaning you are left high and dry with a large bill that you were not expecting.

Always know the driver.
Even if you know the full itinerary of where your teen is going, it's crucial to know who is doing the driving.
