What Can a Corporate Limousine Service do for Your Annapolis Business?

Friday, June 27th, 2014

corporate limoIf you have a big corporate event coming up, you know how stressful it can be to focus on planning and preparing for it. Whether you have clients coming in from out of state or are getting ready to play host to another branch of your company, you’ve got your work cut out for you. You have to arrange somewhere for them to stay, meals, meetings, and transportation. It can be a lot to do on top of your already busy schedule. What you really don’t want to do is have the rest of your work (or their trip) suffer because you’re too stressed out to get everything planned. This is where a corporate limo service comes in! There are some wonderful benefits that come with renting out an Annapolis limo or chauffeured car when you’re playing corporate host.

  • Give an air of sophistication and success. You want your clients or colleagues to know that the business is doing well and that they don’t have anything to worry about financially if they’re working for/with you. Hiring a chauffeured car proves that you’ve got some extra money to spend and that you want to use it to show how important it is to you that they’re in town, whether to talk making a deal or just taking a chance to visit Annapolis and talk business.
  • The luxury of a professional driver. Nobody likes driving in or around Annapolis, especially during rush hour or near holidays. It can be nearly impossible to get anywhere on time and it’s stressful to deal with traffic when you’ve already got a million other things going on for the company and the visit. Hiring a driver who knows the ins and outs of the Annapolis area will ensure that you get where you’re going in a good timeframe and a stress free environment.
  • Enjoy the time. Don’t let a corporate visit or event stress you out. Instead, try to sit back and enjoy the time you get to spend with a client or colleague. Show them the best that Annapolis has to offer while reminding them about the best that your company has to offer. Offering them an elegant way to ride around the city while comfortably talking and laughing in the backseat is a great way to get to know your people and start a lucrative working relationship.

Corporate transportation should be elegant and sophisticated. Let Blanchard Limousines take care of that for you.

Enjoy the Fourth in an Annapolis Limousine

Friday, June 20th, 2014

fireworksIndependence Day is quickly approaching – it’s only two weeks away! The fourth represents American Independence and summer coming into full swing. You should celebrate the right way: from the back of a limousine. For most people, the Fourth is one big red, white, and blue party. And who can blame you, especially since it falls on a Friday this year? It should be a big weekend celebration! There’s plenty going on in the Baltimore and Annapolis area for the Fourth of July this year and we’d like the opportunity to help you to see as many of the events as possible! Check out what’s coming for this year’s independence celebration.

Annapolis Fireworks – Fireworks are arguably the best part of the American Independence Day celebration and as America’s original capital, Annapolis knows how to do fireworks the right way. The fireworks will be launched at 9:15 from a barge in the harbor. Annapolis will be a busy place around firework time. Do you really want to try to drive and park in the Annapolis harbor area right before the fireworks? Probably not. Renting a limo, car, or limo bus will make your evening much easier!

Band Concerts – If you like instrumental music and concert bands playing the best of American Patriotic songs, you’ll enjoy the Naval Academy Band’s Concert Band playing at Susan Campbell Park. The music kicks off at 8 and will go right through the fireworks. Enjoy the best of what Annapolis has to offer through the American Naval Academy.

Baltimore Historic Ship Party – Everyone loves looking at the old ships in Baltimore Harbor. Can you imagine how much fun it would be to party on them? The Annual Independence Day Deck Party starts at 7 on the Fourth and goes until 10. Classic American barbecue along with beer, wine, and more will be served on the ship. The tickets are all-inclusive passes to the fun for the evening. You’ll have a great view of the fireworks and will even get to experience some cannon fire.

Be smart on the Fourth and let someone else do the driving, especially if you choose to engage in any drinking. You’ll be able to have a great time with friends and family at the various Annapolis and Baltimore festivities in the area and know that you’ll be able to get home safely at the end of the night.

4 Tips for Annapolis Limousine Etiquette

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

limousine etiquetteWe all know that riding in a limousine is a luxurious experience pretty much however you spin it. Relaxing in the back while someone else deals with highway traffic is the ideal way to spend your evening – no one wants to fight rush hour on 695. There are a few basic rules of etiquette that you should follow when you hire any car, though, including limousines. If you follow these basic tips, your night and your chauffeur’s night will go much smoother, allowing you to enjoy yourself and your driver to have a great work environment.

  1. Keep your phone on and near you – This goes for when you’re picked up as well as throughout the evening in case your driver runs late, gets lost, or needs more information from you. Make sure the number that you give your driver is your cell number so that they can easily get ahold of you to ask you questions and make your experience an enjoyable one. Our chauffeurs prioritize your enjoyment and safety – making this easy on them is a great courtesy.
  2. Respect your ride – Your driver understand that when you rent a limo, you’re doing so to relax and enjoy yourself while getting to your destination. Being comfortable during your ride is a big priority, but it’s also important to remember that the property is rented. If you spill something that you can easily clean up, the driver and company will both appreciate it. Alert the driver to any irregularities that you notice and do your best to keep the car clean and safe for others.
  3. If the service is good, tip – Tipping is an time-honored American tradition. The limousine industry doesn’t require tipping, but if the service is worth it, a tip won’t go amiss. Your driver will appreciate your gratitude and generosity and it will help him or her assess whether or not he or she needs to improve service.
  4. Respect safety laws – Remember that laws are still laws in the back of a limousine. Underage drinking is not permitted, nor is drug use or unsafe riding practices. Making sure that you obey safety laws and use common sense for your own safety is important. Your driver will thank you and it will help keep you and those traveling with you free from danger.

These are just a few pieces of etiquette and tips to help you enjoy your limousine ride. We always want to make sure that you enjoy your trip and receive the best service we can give! With professionally trained chauffeurs your safety is our # 1 goal. You and your party will arrive in style.

What Event Can I Rent an Annapolis Limo For?

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

limousineRenting a limousine is usually reserved for special events and rare occasions. Most people don’t rent a limo for a regular night out on a whim, though sometimes it’s a great spontaneous thing to do. Many events can be enhanced by renting a limousine, because it makes the event more special and can help you get into a different mindset. Riding in a limousine is a fun, luxurious thing to do. If you’re going out for a special event or are being treated for some reason, riding in a limousine can make everything a little better and add some pizazz to your day. Below are some of the best events to rent a limousine or chauffeured car for!

  • Wedding – This is one of the most classic reasons to rent a limousine. Gliding smoothly up to the church or venue on the day of your wedding can make you feel like the most special person in the world on that day – which of course, you kind of are. Plus, you can also take advantage of the fact that you can transport more people in a limo or SUV than you can in a small sedan that someone in the party owns.
  • Sporting Event – What? I can rent a limo and enjoy luxury just for going to a football game? Of course! Have you ever tried parking at Raven’s stadium? It’s definitely not a walk in the park. Renting a limousine means that you personally won’t have to deal with parking or traffic. Leave the tough stuff up to the chauffeur and even enjoy a little bit of pregaming.
  • Corporate Events – Going to big meetings with all of the corporate big wigs can be boring sometimes, but the ride there doesn’t have to be. Spend time getting to know members of your team from other states, or even other countries, by riding in a limo to your next corporate event or party. You’ll be able to take the edge off and enjoy your time rather than dreading it – plus, most corporate businesses will foot the bill.
  • Transport – Sometimes it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. If you’re flying in after a long day on a plane, the last thing you want to do is take an ordinary car from airport home. You want to enjoy a little bit of added luxury. Having a limousine pick you up from the airport helps prevent parking and driving issues. Long term parking gets expensive. Sometimes it’s more cost efficient to hire a car to drive you from the airport back home.

There are many reasons to rent a limousine and very few not to. Blanchard Limousines offers luxurious limousine services for all occasions. From weddings, bachelor(ette) parties, corporate events, prom, homecoming, or a night on the town. At Blanchard Limousines, your happiness is our goal. Our commitment is to provide the ultimate luxury transportation experience and to meet and exceed your every expectation. With professionally trained chauffeurs your safety is our # 1 goal. You and your party will arrive in style.
