During this recession Perth in Western Australia seems oblivious to the plight of the rest of the world. Whilst belts are tightened and supermarket own brands have become fashionable in even the most upwardly mobile households in New York London and Gdansk, Perth is enjoying more luxuries than investment bankers in London can only dream of.
Jet Ski sales have been good, luxury car sales have been good and perhaps the biggest indicator of the Perth disposable income scenario is the number of Hummer stretch limousines has grown from 3 to 12 in the last 18 months.
With a population of a little more capitalforbusiness than 1.4 million this means that Perth is enjoying more Hummer limos per capita than Monaco, Dubai and Sydney. The reason for this, according to Simon Dagnall who owns A1 Stretch Hummers is two fold. Firstly existing limo operators do not want to be left behind and so there has been a quick upgrade to keep up and secondly new operators have seen these beasts of vehicles rolling around the streets of Perth at up to $660 per hour and want in.
The disposable income here in Perth is huge and for around $40 per head you can hire a Hummer and lord it up “big style”. There is no better way to get to a club, bar or restaurant.
Hummer Limos in Perth come in 3 sizes and many designs. The biggest is the 200″ 4 wheel Steer or The Big Daddy. These really are the kings of the Hummer jungle. Other sizes are the 160″ and the baby of them all the 140″. The interiors vary greatly from the black interiors the wheat coloured.
If you wanted to book a Perth Stretch Hummer the best thing to do is to ring around and ask the following questions.
1. What size
2. What colour
3. What entertainment/lighting system
4. How long in the business
5. Refund policy if have to cancel
6. Aside from the state insurance what other public liability have they got
If you are happy with the answers to these questions then you have found your Perth Hummer limo company.
