Limousines offer a touch of luxury and a professional driver to get you from point A to point B safely. Historically limos are often used for events like weddings or rights of passage like high school dances. I remember attending a homecoming dance in such a vehicle although I wouldn’t describe the experience of being crammed into a vehicle full of 17-year old as luxurious. But I digress…

While the limousine services industry is part of the larger transportation industry, these services in particular have taken a major hit due to social distancing. Market research firms predict a 10.6% revenue decline for these limo services due to lower demand and stay-at-home orders. No doubt many service providers could be completely shut down depending on where you plan to operate.

But if you plan to stay small and operate the business yourself to reduce costs this could be a viable business in the longer-term future.

A limousine business needs a name that conjures images of luxury and prestige for clients. Limousine businesses are usually positioned as classy, up-market, and prestigious. Make sure your brand matches this expectation if you want to attract the best paying clients (i.e. not high schoolers looking to impress a date) Whether you’re running a limo hire service, chauffeured car service, or provide an on-call staff of excellent drivers for corporations, your name is your reputation so choose wisely.

What Should You Name Your Limo Service?

Naming the business is one of the most important steps in setting up your limo service brand

Naming the business is one of the most important steps in setting up your limo service brand.

Working out what to call your limo service can be tough. You want the name to be catchy, but not sleazy. You want to aim for the higher end of the market so you earn a comfortable return on your time running the business.

You first need to determine how you want to be seen by the public. Set clear expectation of what your future clientele can expect. Essentially, figure out what type of clients you will have the most fun and profit by serving and work backwards from there.

Brainstorming is an important part of the naming process. There are a number of ways to kick off the brainstorming process. First tip, start with basic keywords for the business so you aren’t staring at a blank page. Looking down an empty page can be one of the most intimidating parts of the exercise.

Then move on to other words with potential to describe your services to the public to get some inspiration. Make sure to keep you cellphone nearby to write down ideas while you’re shopping for groceries or waking up in the middle of the night with inspiration. Pro tip: You’ll probably get the best ideas when you aren’t trying.

Location is another common way of choosing a name for your business. The name of your city or even state can help with making you more recognizable in the market. Think Boise Driving Co. as an example.

Using a local name like this can spark an emotional attachment from locals and help retain loyal customers. Reminders of personal experiences, enjoyable journeys, or travel memories can help to evoke an emotional response that can be good for business branding too.

While it’s important you can stand behind your limo business name, it’s equally important that it be memorable and easily recognizable. And to make it memorable, it is best to keep it short and to the point. Simple words and short names make things easier to remember.

Another popular ways to name any business is to use your own name in the brand. Linda’s Limos and Fred’s Luxury Fleet have a nice ring to them, and can help people remember you more easily. And if your business is a limo company with a decent fleet, you really don’t have to be called Linda or Fred to use them. Follow this advice, pick a name you’ll be happy with a decade from now and you’ll be on the right track.
