If you are calling several different companies for price quotations you will undoubtedly get a wide range of prices. Usually you will find that several companies will be about the same price with one or two being significantly lower and one or two being higher. All professional reputable companies have similar expenses such as proper insurance, licenses and maintenance costs. Therefore in order to run a quality service and provide a living for themselves and their employees these companies will end up with similar pricing. The only way to cut costs and still make a reasonable profit is to cut something. This always translates to poorer service levels. This can equate to inferior limousines, poorly trained chauffeurs, unlicensed or uninsured operators, or part time operators who run their business at their own convenience.
Some companies will give a lower price to book a limousine in advance and then quote the same reservation to other clients for a much higher price. If someone is foolish enough to book at the inflated rate they will call and cancel the other client in favour of the better paying run.
