How Limousine Transportation Services Work
We’ve talked a bit about shipping a limousine before on our blog, but it’s something that we want to talk a bit more about as the limousine industry is going steady and there’s always someone out there that needs to ship one. Limousine transportation services are much the same as transportation services for any other type of vehicle: prices depend on where you are shipping the vehicle from and to, when you need to ship it, and how big the limousine in question actually is. On the whole, just about any vehicle can be customized into a limousine, and that’s usually how they’re built. Most of the time, things like Lincoln Town Cars and Hummer H2’s are used as limousines, and their stretch lengths can vary wildly.
This can make your limousine transportation services more difficult to price correctly, which means the dimensions of the vehicle are going to be required in almost every instance. The dimensions you will need – aside from the year, make and model of the limousine, which is information required for every single vehicle being shipped – are going to be the length (perhaps the most important one), the width (if anything but standard), the height (same deal), and the weight.
These are important, particularly the length and weight, as those are two most likely to be affected by the stretching process used to make a limousine. If a limousine is too long, it won’t be able to fit onto a standard car carrier – even a standard limo takes up two spots, which makes it more expensive than a standard car right off the bat. And as carriers are required to stick to stringent weight requirements, the weight is going to be necessary to determine if it’s light enough to go on a car carrier or whether more specialized transportation services (i.e. flatbed shipping) will be required.

They’ll be emailed to you from some of the best and brightest car shipping companies in the industry, and they understand how limousine transportation services work and how to make your shipping experience as good as it can be.
