POLICE CRACKDOWN MEANS MORE
UNLICENSED, UNINSURED PARTY BUSES
GET TOWED AWAY LEAVING PASSENGERS STRANDED!
HAVING THE PARTY BUS YOU RENTED TOWED AWAY WHILE YOU
WERE IN THE CLUB, CONCERT, RESTAURANT ETC WILL RUIN YOUR FUN TIME!
To Operate a LEGAL Party Bus Rental Business
You Need A Very Expensive $5 Million Dollar Insurance Policy And
A Special License Issued by the California Public Utilities Commission.
Licensed Companies Must Also Submit To CHP Safety Inspections And Comply
With Regulations Like Routine Preventive Maintenance And Driver Drug Testing!
All Of That Drives Up Expenses And Rental Prices So....
Many Skip The License & Insurance And Operate Illegally!!
Yep... You didn't know it because they looked and sounded so legit but... you booked with an unlicensed, uninsured company! They probably offered the cheapest rental price so you booked with them but now while you were in the restaurant, show, concert etc and your party bus was parked waiting for you the Police stopped by to check your driver has the proper drivers license for the size of the vehicle they are driving and the company has the above mentioned special license from the California Public Utilities Commission and the required $5 Million Dollar Insurance Card. GULP!! They did not so your party bus WAS towed away and you WILL spend the rest of the night worrying about the things you left in the party bus while you are waiting for UBER. Next day you will have to chase your cell phone, purse, jacket etc down at the tow yard... wherever that is!
Avoid The Above Scene By Doing A Quick License Check Before You Book!!
