Buying a used limousine or livery sedan
Tips and links to find the right vehicle for your limousine startup

Most new companies cannot afford the payments and down payment of a new limousine. In fact, most new limousine companies shouldn't even buy stretch and focus on sedan work.

Remember, in the beginning you can farm out work to other companies with the types of vehicles that are not currently in your fleet. Don't buy a new vehicle unless know you have enough work to cover all of the new expenses each vehicle brings.

Be sure to review our section on Coachbuilders to get a better understanding of how to choose the right vehicles for your new limousine business. Wheels of Gold by William J. Goerl has a great section on choosing your first vehicle.

Keep in mind; an increasing number of insurance companies are not going to insure a vehicle that is not QVM or CMC certified or over 3-5 years old.
