What Sets Us Apart

Posted On: July 19, 2018


At All Star Limousine we get asked a lot what’s the difference between us and a company like Uber, the short answer is a lot. Uber and Lyft are ride-hailing services, like a taxi, the proper term is black car service, All Star Limousine is a transportation company that offers executive car service. The specific differences are in the service, the vehicle and the chauffeur.

We hire and train chauffeurs. Many people mistake drivers for chauffeurs, not realizing that there are distinct differences and the titles should not be interchangeable. For example, drivers that are hired for a ride hailing service like Uber or Lyft are required to have a valid driver’s license and be over 21 years of age. Whereas much more is required of chauffeurs. Not only do they specialize in customer service and strive to go above and beyond with each ride, they are also TLC/CDL licensed and trained in driver safety precautions. Our chauffeurs go through a screening process for background checks through driver’s license, social security and state finger prints as well as a full health physical and Drug and Alcohol screening before they are even allowed to step foot in any of our vehicles. Each of our hires are carefully selected through face-to-face interviews, we make sure full physicals are maintained yearly and random drug and alcohol testing occurs during their employment. Our chauffeurs report to a higher authority and are accountable for their actions; therefore they work hard to maintain quality service. When you are getting into an All-Star vehicle, you can expect the best every time.

We understand the importance of maintenance, safety, comfort and style when traveling. We look after each vehicle in our fleet to make sure all mechanical work and registrations are up to date to minimize the chances of breakdowns. We always have a backup plan in place, since we do realize, some things cannot be avoided, as we are dealing with mechanics. With All Star you will always arrive in style and in a timely manner. Companies like Uber do not require their drivers to maintain their vehicles, which puts travelers at risk of running late due to mechanical failure. All Star is aware that a chauffeur’s tardiness will unfairly reflect onto the passengers’ schedule and we do everything we can to arrive at least 15 minutes before scheduled pick up times.

A chauffeur is capable of much more than just car service. Our transportation services are not limited to corporate and airport travel, we specialize in events such as weddings, bachelor/bachelorette parties, birthdays, wine tours, business meetings and other special
Whether you need a sedan, or a 46-passenger party bus, our chauffeurs are readily available and committed to serving you.

Wedding Day Tips: Photography

Posted On: May 25, 2018



  • Don’t Forget to Freshen Your Makeup

It can be easy to forget about staying matte, reapplying lipstick, checking your highlight, contour and making sure your cheeks are blushed when you are busy thanking and kissing everyone in the receiving line after the ceremony! Before you move on to take pictures before cocktail hour, take a few minutes to freshen up so you can look your best in those special shots!


  • Pick Your Best Angle

Taking pictures while standing straight towards the camera doesn’t make for the best shot. While most photographers will help place you for pictures it is good to understand what angle you look best in. Practicing before the big day means you won’t be over thinking it, standing at an angle while tilting your chin slightly is often the most flattering. Try looking in the mirror and take some selfies to find out how you feel most comfortable.


  • Focus on Posture

Of course, you want your posture to be perfect in all your photos, however it is especially important to remember while sitting. Be sure to sit up straight and cross your legs at the ankles.


  • Hold Your Bouquet Properly

Holding your bouquet right in front of you at about waist level with your arms right in front of you can make you look bigger in photos. Having your arms held out from your hips a bit will look much better. For a more relaxed picture, holding it loosely with one hand and the other hanging naturally by your side is another great option. Remember, small details can make a big difference!


  • Smile!

With all the excitement of the happiest day of your life you would be surprised how easy it is to forget to smile, especially if you are nervous about making sure everything is perfect. Just remember you look beautiful and your smile will be your best accessory.


  • Relax and Be Yourself

Thinking too much about how you are posing can translate into your photos. Just remember to relax, breathe, and be yourself, it will make for the most natural reflection of you and your relationship.

Mother's Day

Mother’s Day Ideas for 2018

Mother’s Day has been a tradition since the late 1800’s. It is a time to celebrate and honor the women in our lives that have shaped us into who we are today, whether it be a Mother, Grandma, Aunt or any special someone, we have put together a few ways to show recognition for all they do throughout the year.

Make it a Family Affair:

Show homage to all the mothers in your family by planning a group wine tour, spa day, brunch or dinner where they can enjoy each other’s company. If you really want to feel pampered booking a party bus or limo for transportation is a nice idea so everyone can relax and travel together in style, without having to lift a finger!

Hair, Nails, Makeup:

Take her out for a makeover! Going for a new hair style or up do and makeup is a great way to make Mom feel special. Getting a manicure and pedicure before going out to lunch or dinner makes for a fun-filled day together.

Shopping:

Can’t figure out what to get her? Plan a trip to the mall together and let her pick out exactly what she wants! Sometimes we don’t know how to pick the perfect gift for the person who means so much to us, it may feel like you want to give them the world. It just seems like a tangible gift would not suffice for someone so special. I find making memories is one of the best gifts to give in situations like this. Making a day dedicated to Mom, with something like, taking her out to the mall and making her a home cooked meal can be so simple, yet one of the greatest memories both of you will look back on.

 

Mother’s Day is Sunday May 13th; however you decide to celebrate, we hope you can take this opportunity to spend some time with the women who matter most in your life and truly show them your appreciation.
