It’s a very comforting feeling when you get off a long flight to have someone waiting for your arrival to greet and help you with your bags. It’s even nicer when they are there to escort you to your waiting limousine, ready to whisk you off to your appointment in comfort and style. That’s the benefit corporate executives or private citizens enjoy when they book a Meet & Greet at the airport.
Almost any limousine company can arrange this service for you. If your chauffeur is unable to personally meet you at baggage claim, for logistical reasons, it is possible to arrange a professional greeter meet you and escort you and your bags to your vehicle. These professional greets will cost extra if you have to book a separate service, but it can be well worth it; at times it’s absolutely necessary, especially if you are dealing with a large group.
Meet and Greet Service in Los Angeles
Brilliant Transportation offers this service to all of our clients who are arriving at the airport. Whenever possible, we have the driver perform this duty. When it is not possible for the chauffeur to meet you, we will happily book a professional greeter service for you, upon your request.
Why wouldn’t the chauffeur be able to do this in all cases you might ask?
Well, there’s a good explanation for that. The reason is simple. If you have booked a larger vehicle, like a mini-bus for group transportation, or a tall passenger van, like the Mercedes Sprinter, there is no room for these oversized vehicles in short term parking at the airport. Without a place to park of course, the chauffeur cannot leave the vehicle unattended. Most of the open air parking lots that could accommodate larger vehicles are at a remote location, off of airport property, and too far away to chauffeur to be able retrieve the vehicle in a timely manner.
Not everyone requests an inside pick up, however, because it takes longer. You see, after the chauffeur meets you and brings you outside, he then has to go pick up the vehicle in short-term parking. This means you still have to wait at the curb. If you have only a short amount of time to get to a meeting or an appointment, this can eat up valuable time, especially if the chauffeur has to walk a long way to get to the parking garage.
If you’re in a rush, it can be better just to meet the chauffeur outside with the waiting vehicle. As long as the driver has your cell phone number and vice-versa, getting in touch with him won’t be a problem. If you really want an inside greet and don’t have a lot of time, you always have the option of booking a separate greeter to escort you, although this will cost extra.
Reviews of Limo Companies That Offer Meet and Greet Service in LA
Like I said, this is a commonly arranged service, and I wouldn’t make it the deciding criteria in terms of picking a limousine service. More important from the consumers point of view is the level of service you expect to get and the price.
