Friday fun and more Apple news iPhone appThe last week in San Francisco has been CRAZY with Apple news – the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference was held just a few blocks from our office, and everyone within an earshot has been talking about iCloud, unlocked iPhones and the sweet, free iPhone app that just hit iTunes.  You haven’t heard about the sweet app?  It’s the iPhone app – ready for download, just in time for your summer of fun.

You’ll have all the perks of booking a ride from the palm of your hand–unbeatable prices included of course.

Wedding photos from a Davids Bridal winner!

We’re feeling like fairy godmothers at Limos HQ right now.

If you didn’t know, partners with David’s Bridal to give away a free limo ride for a lucky winner’s wedding day each month. The winners have a year to use their prize, and since wedding rides are often done several months in advance, we don’t often hear about what happens after they win.

Melanie Edwards was our winning bride in October 2010. We just received not only a note from her thanking us for making her wedding extra special with a white stretch limo, but also some of her beautiful wedding photos!

Melanie and her new husband Kenneth, thanks so much for sharing! We’re so happy that we were able to help make your day even more unforgettable.

Big news, and a word from our CEO

Title: Big news, and a word from our CEO

We’ve got some fantastic news! I’d spell it all out here, but, well, maybe I should let the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, VentureBeat and TechCrunch do it instead:

The New York Times Raises $10 Million from Austin Ventures
The Wall Street Journal Online
Amid Talent War, Tries “Speed Hiring”
VentureBeat lands $10M for swanky online limo services
TechCrunch Scores $10 Million For Online Limo And Car Services Marketplace


We here at LLC are all incredibly excited for the next year and all the amazing things coming.

On that note, here’s a word from our CEO, TJ Clark:

Three years ago, the founders of saw an opportunity to do for ground transportation what they had very successfully done for air travel at one of the hottest start-ups of the Internet boom – bring a highly fragmented, offline industry to the web and use technology to create an efficient, transparent marketplace that benefits both consumers and suppliers.

We’ve preferred to stay under the radar and build our business. And there was a lot to do. The ground transportation industry is a $36 billion market in the U.S. alone ($17B private car; $19B taxi) with more than 8,000 suppliers and no central inventory or booking system. More than 95% of car service bookings are still made by phone, and customers have no easy way to compare prices and providers. In fact, many consumers don’t even realize there are multiple independent
providers of reliable limo and town car service in their city who are willing to compete for their business with lower prices.

We’ve quietly gone market to market throughout the world and connected thousands of pre-screened, licensed and insured suppliers to our marketplace. We’ve built a following of 1.7 million registered users and over 500K monthly visitors while tripling revenue over the past three years and being profitable since day one. Today is the largest online comparison shopping marketplace for limo and car services worldwide.

So we’re excited to announce we’ve received $10 million in financing from private equity firm Austin Ventures. We’ll use this fresh capital infusion to continue improving for consumers and corporate travelers, as well as our supplier partners.

Our pedal is to the metal, and you’ll be hearing a lot more from this year.  Whether you’re planning a wedding or traveling for business, join us for the ride…

— T.J. Clark, CEO

Time to upgrade your prom

Imagine the night:

you’re wearing the hottest dress in town… one that would make Megan Fox green with envy. Your hair and make-up are flawless, his tux complements your dress perfectly, and his hair would make Justin Bieber reconsider his stylist. The corsage he got you is perfect and matches your rockin’ dress as if they were cut from the same material.  All the embarrassing parent pictures have been taken and it’s time to hit the road for your unforgettable night.

You climb into his parents’ 2008 Honda Accord and you’re off to dinner… wait, really?

Unacceptable. Your all-time fashion high should have a ride to match.

Getting a ride for prom doesn’t necessarily mean draining your parent’s savings account. lets you compare local car service companies and prices all in one place. What’s best is that negotiates with limo companies for discounts of up to 40% off standard rates. So not only will you arrive in style, you’ll be able to afford something other than burgers and fries for dinner.

We’ve put together a new Prom Limo Guide to help answer your questions about renting a limo for prom. Check it out!
