Weekend Update: April 8th, 2017

Greetings from VIP Limousine management!

We’re coming off of yet another busy weekend, when all of our limousines and chauffeurs were on duty non-stop. We picked up a variety of people at the airport, including some who were delayed five hours. As long as they don’t cancel, we take them all!

The image above is from a quinceañera we did this last weekend with our white Hummer H2. The group had a ton of fun, and not just with the pictures! This vehicle has space for up to 20 people inside, and they are swathed in leather, carpeting, and metal on the inside, with custom effects for a unique experience.

Another one of our clients celebrated a birthday in our Mercedes-Benz Sprinter limousine. They spent their day cocooned in its luxurious interior, with Bentley-style quilted stitching on the leather seats, televisions with DVD capability, and privacy shades on each of the windows.

Then our Escalade traveled with a wedding party down to the beautiful Wadley Farms, a gorgeous wedding venue in Lindon, Utah. Featuring a rustic set of barns as well as a towering castle and lush gardens, Wadley Farms makes a stunning location for the biggest of the big days.

In addition to these, we had a birthday in Park City in the Hummer, a corporate event, a prom run, and an airport arrival which came in five hours late, in addition to one which was last-minute. Our chauffeurs patiently waited to take each party and tracked the flights to make sure we were running efficiently and on time. Snowstorms and delayed flights don’t stop us.

We’ll have more updates coming later this week. Stay tuned!

Birthday Bash

VIP Limousine Birthday 2

Our black Hummer limousine is great for VIP treatment, with wraparound ostrich-print black leather seats, a Bose audio system with CD and auxiliary input, televisions with a DVD player, a full limousine bar with champagne flutes and rock glasses, and full automatic climate controls for maximum comfort.

Come check out our fleet at our warehouse! Book now at 801-288-9494. And a happy birthday to our valued clients! Thanks for making our day great.

Testimonial Tuesday: Returning Missionaries

SLC Airport Logo

“We had a wonderful experience with VIP Limousine. We were needing their service to get to and from the SLC airport to pick some family members who were returning from a LDS mission. We provided the flight information with the professionals at VIP Limousine and they took take of the rest. They contacted us earlier than we had originally planned due to the flight coming in was about thirty minutes early. They arrived early and got us out to the airport just on time. Had VIP not been on top of their game our family members returning from their mission would have been waiting around for us. Overall we had a wonderful experience with VIP Limousine.”

Usanaty, or: How VIP Limousine does corporate events

VIP Limousine Van Convoy

At VIP Limousine, we go out of our way to accommodate the needs of our clients. This includes the corporations. For this week, it was a locally-based health and wellness company, USANA.

At least once every year, USANA has meetings and leadership retreats here in Utah. For this particular event, their guests stayed at The Grand Summit Hotel in the Canyons Village at Park City Mountain Resort. Everything began in earnest on Wednesday, checking all airport permits and readying new chauffeurs for the expanded service. We refer to this event on our end as “USANAty,” since it is a very busy time!

Early on Thursday morning, the first of the USANA guests began to arrive at Salt Lake City International Airport, mere minutes from the downtown core of Salt Lake City. Before the first passengers arrived, we had chauffeurs stationed at the airport with SUVs and dispatch on standby for flight changes. We also set up a meet-and-greet system with our management team and maintained drivers on the airport site in case of an unexpected problem.

As it happened, with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints having the spring sessions of General Conference, the airport was beefed up with extra security, resulting in some very rare delays at the airport. However, we stood by to accommodate whichever USANA passengers came our way, even combining some trips, which saved USANA some transportation costs. Even with some delayed flights, we took everyone from the airport up to Park City without a hitch. Our chauffeurs really knew how to step it up and anticipate forthcoming needs.

For transportation the following day to the USANA headquarters, we gave them a special treat: rides in our limousine fleet. We deployed our options from Hummer, Cadillac, and Mercedes-Benz to give VIP treatment to every participant in the retreat. We utilized these vehicles plus additional vans where needed to move everyone from the Grand Summit Hotel to USANA headquarters and back again, navigating the twisting route of Interstate 80 through the canyon between the two locations.

While this was happening, we still had other reservations to take care of in limousines and black car service. Our chauffeurs successfully transported a family going on a special trip, a birthday party, and several prom groups in the midst of USANAty.

Saturday was another important day for the USANA event, with a special part of the program being dinner along the exclusive, charming, and unique Park City Main Street. We brought a convoy of vans, pictured above, to the Grand Summit Hotel to take the passengers to 350 Main, a chic American brasserie. In the middle of this scheduled trip, we received unexpected surprise news from one of our chauffeurs who encountered a traffic problem, so one of the chauffeurs in the van convoy took over the run the other was supposed to do. This is just one example of VIP Limousine doing what needs to be done to get our clients where they need to go, with no excuses. This chauffeur then rejoined the rest of the convoy back in Park City to complete the evening’s assignment.

On Sunday morning at 3 am, our chauffeurs who had the first trips of the day began to get ready, and brought vehicles back to the Grand Summit Hotel. Using a combination of vans, sedans, and SUVs, our team successfully transported all of the USANA guests back to SLC International Airport so they could make their individual flights to various destinations around the world. Again, these went without incident, with everyone and their luggage fitting with room to spare in our vehicles.

After USANAty, our team isn’t resting. The needs for transportation in the Salt Lake area continue to demand the best service, and we at VIP Limousine will work to continue to honor our commitment to VIP treatment for everyone at every level. Whether you have a corporate event, a special personal event, or simply need to get from A to B, we are here at the ready with professional service, a calm attitude, and a willingness to go beyond the call of necessity.

The Quinceañera Expo!

Greetings from the Riverbend Sports Complex!

We are coming to you today from the Quinceañera Magazine – Utah expo, a lively and colorful event full of fun and celebratory themes. The quinceañera is a very, very important cultural celebration for Latin American girls, marking the transition to womanhood and stretching back to around 550 B.C.

As the event sponsor, VIP Limousine arrived early in the day with two limousines to flank the main stage: the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and the Hummer H2. We had guests getting in and out of them all day long, checking out the luxurious and stylish interiors and modern exteriors. Additionally, several of the models as well as the emcee took pictures with the vehicles.

Quinceañera Magazine – Utah, as the host, set up the stage with a catwalk for several rounds of models, showing off some modern and some traditional styles of dresses for all of the girls. They also featured some young and skillful dancers set to the best possible music for a party: Latin.

One particularly incredible thing about this expo was the number of different companies featured here with their products and services. Here’s a list of some which are featured:

  • Joyeria Uribe
  • Sunny Day’s Cakes
  • Princess House
  • U-nique Floral
  • Ataly Stylo’s
  • Rumba Libre Band
  • Montenegro Events
  • Mi Ranchito
  • Complete Weddings and Events

Joyeria Uribe is a jewelry company based in West Valley City, Utah, specializing in traditional and celebratory jewelry fit for a quinceañera queen.

Sunny Day’s Cakes is an award-winning bakery based in Eagle Mountain, Utah. They have been featured on the show Cake Wars on Food Network and produce some delicious and unique desserts. The representatives on hand brought some amazing tiered cakes and cupcakes. Go give them a try! It’s worth the drive.

Princess House specializes in household items and cookware, geared towards individuals who like to host their own dinners and parties.

U-nique Floral is a local floral shop which specializes in flower arrangements for quinceañeras, weddings, funerals, and even hospital patients.

Ataly Stylo’s is a beauty and cosmetics shop located in Midvale which does a broad range of makeup, nails, and other products.

The Rumba Libre Band is a live, local band specializing in Latin music. According to their website, they perform in the styles of Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Bachata, and Latin Jazz. According to our ears at the Expo, they sounded great, since once the runway shows completed they entertained us for the remainder of the event.

The Montenegro Event Center is located in West Valley City, and is open for musical and private special events, including weddings, parties, and of course, quinceañeras.

Mi Ranchito Grill was the Mexican restaurant that helped provide food for the event. They have several locations across the Wasatch Front in Utah, including Salt Lake City and Orem, and have been here since 1983.

Complete Weddings and Events is a wedding package, DJ, and event planning company based in Salt Lake City. They also do photography, video, and other work by request. We had a chance to check out their awesome photo booth on display, too!

A great thing about these expos is they allow local companies to come together and showcase the best of what they have to offer. For important events, it is very helpful to know where you can turn for particular services, and furthermore to know that they will meet or exceed your expectations to make the day special. This is crucial in the quinceañera market. That’s why as one of these companies, VIP Limousine is committed to world class limousine service and providing VIP treatment from start to finish.

New Video: Our Services at VIP Limousine

At VIP Limousine, we are dedicated to providing world class limousine service. From black car to birthday, from classic to contemporary, we do it all! Click on the link below for a quick montage of some of what we do.

VIP Limousine Services

Some of our favorite events include quinceañeras! The celebration of a young woman’s 15th birthday is an old tradition in Latin American communities, marking the transition to womanhood. Quinceañeras are said to come from the Aztec culture, starting around 500 B.C. With the man of honor, additional guests, the inclusion of a religious aspect of the celebration depending on tradition and planning, we have limousine options to fit different quinceañera budgets and styles!

Additionally, VIP Limousine has been invited to the Quinceañera Magazine Expo in Utah this Saturday! Check out the link below for more information and to see some of our vehicles in person.

Quinceañera Expo

Speaking of traditional celebrations, let’s talk about prom!

Prom, short for the term “promenade,” is also a coming-of-age celebration started in the United States in the 19th century. Initially, proms were held at colleges, but gradually shifted to high schools, which to this day mainly hold such events for the seniors. If there is a dance for the juniors, it’s often designated as “junior prom.” These events have also become more commonplace in Canada and the U.K., which due to U.S. cultural influences also refer to them as “prom.”

In other nations, the same or similar events are referred to as balls, not unlike in the fairytales. However, the traditions and style of dress remain very similar across national boundaries, including the attire and the naming of a prom king and queen.

Another tradition of a prom event? Renting a limousine! That’s where we come in with our fleet of limousines. When you call and book with us, you have the choice of the Lincoln Town Car, Cadillac Escalade, Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, and Hummer H2. Let us help with your prom logistics by taking care of your transportation needs.

Our prom special is also continuing! Check out the details in the copy of our flier below. Mention it when you book to get our best pricing.

VIP Limousine 2016 Prom Promotion

What about birthdays? We do birthdays as well! Unlike quinceañeras and prom, the birthday is virtually universally celebrated all around the world. Even companies and organizations celebrate birthdays, though sometimes they will substitute the term “anniversary” instead. Regardless, we at VIP Limousine have had some fun ones ourselves!

On one particular occasion, we filled one of our limousines with pizzas and picked up the birthday girl and her friends as a surprise. They loved riding in our Hummer H2 and tailoring the celebration just how they wanted it. Not everybody will use a limousine to celebrate their birthday, but it’s one way to make it special, safe, and private.

What else can you use a limousine service for? Seeing as each of our stretched vehicles comes fully-equipped with a bar, they can also be used simply to go out on the town and have a great time. We can ensure you have fun while also keeping everybody safe on the roads. A private limousine ride is definitely less expensive and more fun than a DUI. More memorable? We’d rather not have to contest that.

The video and text above highlight only some of what we do at VIP Limousine, but as you can see, it’s quite a variety. We hadn’t even gotten to anniversaries, weddings, black car service, and corporate travel! Regardless of your transportation needs, we have the expertise, fleet, and service to cover it all.

Be sure to stay tuned to our blog for more updates!

VIP Limousine Lincoln Town Car

Service Updates: March 17th, 2017

At VIP Limousine, we are committed to world-class limousine service and providing VIP treatment to everybody who sets foot in one of our vehicles.

Today we are announcing more upgrades to our service!

First, we are continuing to offer our prom special. This allows you to buy 5 hours in a limousine and get the 6th hour free.  You can also add even more hours to this time…there’s no set limit! For example, if you book on a Saturday from 12:00 PM – 10:30 PM, the hour from 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM is free.

Second, we’ve made some improvements to the most traditional limousine in the fleet: our classic white Lincoln Town Car stretch. Lincoln may no longer make this vehicle, but that does not mean it has not stood the test of time as a classic and dependable limousine. We intend to keep it in our fleet as long as possible for our clients’ desires and needs, and it is still the standard for stretched transportation.

Book with us now by visiting our website or calling our office at 801-288-9494, and be sure to subscribe to our social media channels. As always, thank you for choosing VIP Limousine!
