History of Limo Service

When you hear the word luxury limousine you also assume there is a chauffer, one of the great benefits to hiring a Philadelphia limo service. Chauffeurs have been around since the time of stage coaches, when the rich and famous were transported in covered wagons while a driver in front braved ill-weather and took care of the horses. In today’s limo services a chauffer is often your first resource for information on a cool place to go and your safe designated driver for the night.

A very brief history of limousines is that the first stretch limos started appearing in the 1930’s and were often referred to as “big band buses” because they were often used by band members for transport between shows, and they have evolved ever since. Some of the most famous limos in modern times include presidential limousines involved in the Kennedy Assassination, the 1924 Lincoln used by President Coolidge and the world’s longest limo that is over a hundred feet long.

The height of growth in the industry may have been in the 1930s when they became popular among those in the growing cinema industry. Can you remember a time when actresses didn’t step out of a limo at the Oscars? As film budgets have grown so have the limousines, and you can get a stretch anything as companies have done everything from VW Beetles to Rolls Royces. Currently the Philadelphia luxury limousine and chauffer industry is being heavily affected by the economic downturn, so you may be able to snag a deal on a great ride if you fancy a night on the town.

Clients Testimonials

Check out what our clients have to say about their experience with us.


My company had an international artist picked up at JFK and dropped off in Philadelphia, and the artist had the best time. The driver kept in touch with me throughout the day, so we could plan for arrival, and our artist had the most wonderful experience with the driver. That’s really astounding considering our artist had just gotten off a red-eye from across the world. Thank you so very much!

Great customer service- tracking my flight, noting it was going to land 40 minutes early…and making the adjustment so someone was there to meet me at the airport early! Also, receiving a confirmation email 24 hours prior was reassuring as well. Thank you!!
