Now we have all heard our share of "limo nightmare stories," so choosing a reputable and dependable limousine company should be taken very seriously. I met with Frank LaBarca, the vehicle and maintenance manager of Camelot Specialty Limos, with offices in Flushing and New Hyde Park. He told me "one of the things I love about running the fleet at Camelot is that the owners instruct me that absolutely no vehicle is to leave the garage unless I would feel safe putting their own kids in that vehicle." Asked about tips before booking a limo for prom night, he said "many limousine carriers will promise your kids a different vehicle than what actually shows up that night." He cautioned that some companies don't show up at all."Vehicles carrying more than 15 passengers should be registered with NYS DMV as a bus and the license plate should have "Bus" on it," Frank said. The limo should also have Department of Transportation numbers displayed on the side of the vehicle. The DOT ensures parents that the limousine has been subjected to a safety inspection every six months by a DOT inspector who checks for mechanical defects, structural stability, seating capacity, emergency exits." So How's Business in regard to prom night and Limousines? Remember you are entrusting a limousine company to be responsible for your kids for some 10 hours. You can reach Camelot Specialty Limos at (516) 731-LIMO (5466) or go online at www.camelotlimo.com.
