Limousine Builder & Limos For Sale in Michigan

Limousine

I have been a long time lover of limousines ever since I was little. I remember watching Dumb & Dumberer when I was still going to elementary in West Bloomfield, MI and seeing the limousine the Lloyd drives, and thinking how cool it would be to also meet a beautiful lady like Mary when doing a limousine ride.

It was always in the back of my subconscious that I wanted to some day own my own limousine. I didn’t know if I wanted to do business with it or just own one. My childhood mind probably just wanted to own one one way or another. I always liked to have nice things in life, whether it was the newest Air Jordans that my friends didn’t have yet or it was that limited edition Charizard. I always wanted to have something unique & special that is of high valued. There is this great feeling you get when you finally get an item you’ve been dreaming about for a long time.

I remember this one incident back when I was 10 years old, I got some booster packs for Pokemon cards for Christmas. I mean back then those cards were the most popular thing ever. And I remember opening through the cards and I found a Charizard amongst one of the packs and I was super delighted because it was what I was dreaming about for months at that point.

So now that I’m 27 years old and I graduated College with a degree in advertising and working for a company for few years. I’ve come to a new stage in life where I realized that being an entrepreneur is the only way to go in this world because when something gives you a significant return on investment of time like money, you work harder and you enjoy working harder. Well recently I’ve been rekindling my childhood dreams of owning a limo and renting it for a living.

I want to quite my job and become a business owner of renting limousines. Well that’s easier said and done because the more research I did the more challenging it became to see just exactly which limousine I was going to purchase for the first time.

I knew the usual fleet like befow

Cadillac Stretch Limousine

A great looking car and I wouldn’t mind starting off my limo business in Michigan with this ride but I do see this ride pretty commonly with other business owner.

The Lincoln Stretch Very Common Ride

Now the Stretch Lincoln has to be the Cheese Burger of McDonals, every limo owner has it and it makes me wonder if I should get it as well and that if it’s the big money maker?

But where the rubber meets the road is that either by coincidence or by good fortune, I was at a small local business convention and I met a man that had 25 years of limousine manufacturing and renting. He told me the key to success in the limousine business is to own cars no one has. Then he told me few of the secret of his secret and how he became the largest limousine operation in Michigan with over 70 vehicles at his disposal.

He told me the key is to get a nice limo like a Bentley or Rolls Royce that people don’t have and rent them out at unique prices to customers and let them have a really unique experience then just renting a white Lincoln limousine.

After hearing the price on one of these vehicles he manufactured I got excited because it was within my price range and I could see myself financing one pretty soon.

The limo will have all the bells and whistles of modern vehicle but with classic exterior of a Rolls Royce phantom.

More of his limo can be found at his site: http://www.limocreator.com/

He even has Corvette Limos and Ferrari Limousines although the price tag is bit out of my reach, I would like to someday own one of those as well, it is a good goal to aim for anyways.

But yea now I have to go to the bank and scrap up some money for the Rolls Royce limo and start my business within this year. That is all. In the meantime, I would like to keep posting some articles on my limousine business ventures of Michigan on this blog and keep everyone informed on what I learn and what are other cool things that are out there that can enhance a limo business to the next level.

First important thing I believe is to model after success, right now I think I found my mentor that’s the Limo Creator guy, I will keep his name undisclosed, but man he had some great insight and knowledge from his 25 years of experience.

Cool Limousines for Sale in Michigan

So me and my friends are thinking about start a limousine business and we are looking into investing in some limos or party buses by the time summer comes. There’s many to choose from and its almost mind boggling which one to choose from. Which car model, maker, and color? Should we go with white, black or yellow?

As we scan through the list of limo companies in Michigan, we notice that most of them drive around in Lincoln Town Car Stretch or H2 Hummer Limos.

yes a lot of these vehicles are very nice indeed, but what’s the point of having the same car as everyone else? I mentioned in my last post about a company in MI that’s selling real luxurious vehicles like Bentley’s and Rolls Royce and I think that’s where the money is at. Getting those vehicles that other people don’t own. I am sure you will get a lot more wedding bookings and other things where client will gladly pay higher margins to get a special vehicle for their wedding day.

So what other limo sellers are there in Michigan besides limo creator, we’ve been looking and it seems that most of the big time limo custom builders are coming from California. I would be hard pressed to find another limo manufacturer in Michigan. Although it is always fantastic to buy local, we have looked into other options in the west coast as well.

As you know west coast custom choppers gives the image that things coming from California are much nicer than Michigan but is that really true?

Sure the vehicles look nice sitting under palm trees and the beach with a bright sun up in the sky but there’s gotta be more to it than that. It is indeed nice to touch and feel the product before you buy it. I’ve been listening to some of Jordan Belfort’s speeches and there’s two components to people buying.

There’s the emotional side of buying:

People will do business with those that they like, a person that they feel cares about them, not just someone looking to sell them something. We want to do business with people that are like us.

There’s the logical side of buying:

We want to do business that makes air tight logical sense, that means the positives hugely out weight the negatives. And everything is heavily weighed in my favor.

With this in mind its interesting to watch your own psychology of buying and watching others buying strategy.

It is definitely true in my experience, we want to do business with someone whom we like and someone that’s like us. and I am calling these business owners and finding out if I can trust them, unconsciously drawing up pictures in my mind of who they are.

and this whole processing is happening so rapidly, its pretty amazing when you think about it…

Anyways.

What Limo Is the best to begin with?

This is the question I will be mulling over in my mind for a while and I will report once I come up with a good solution.
