INFO FOR TRANSPORTATION

What types of cars do you have in your fleet?
Classic Car, Limousine - Standard
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your fleet and drivers:
I am a full-time at-home father of two and the Hippie Limo is my personal classic car that I am using as a part-time way to supplement the family income. I have only the one vehicle. I am fully insured as a commercial vehicle during my operating season and I have full authority from the PUC/State of Colorado to operate as a limousine. 
 
 Limousine Permit #: LL-02071
 P.U.C. #: 06632
 
 The Hippie Limo seats 6 passengers. I am the only driver. 
 
 Please note that alcohol is not allowed in our Samba and that passengers may only consume clear bottled water. My insurance forbids alcohol and the upholstery is far too difficult and expensive to clean or replace. 
 
 As this is a 1965 vehicle there is no air conditioning - however the windows and sunroof have rarely made this an issue.
What (if any) amenities are your vehicles equipped with?
As this is a vintage vehicle, the amenity is the experience of riding in a near perfect 60s time capsule that is one of the most unusual vehicles on the road. There is, however, a 1000-watt sound system that you can control via remote that has 3.5 days of 60s music on it. You will also have some of the most amazing photos you or your friends can imagine. Check out the possibilities on our website using the links to our Gallery and Pinterest page.
Describe any special wedding packages you offer:
The Reception – $276.00 for 3 hours
 
 Want to add a bit of flair to your trip to the ceremony or reception, or maybe make an unforgettable getaway? Just imagine the smiles on your guests’ faces when they see you arrive or depart in the Hippie Limo while your chosen soundtrack reverberates across the crowd. You can cruise in style and even blow kisses and wave while standing in the sunroof before we leave. If you want a few moments to yourselves we can cruise around for awhile before dropping you off and still have time for amazing photographs. This package includes three hours ($79.00 each additional hour). Remember, we have a six passenger maximum.
 
 The Special Day – $429.00 for 5 hours
 
 You’ve been looking forward to this day for a while and you want the full royal treatment. The Hippie Limo will be at your disposal for 5 hours from wedding to reception to getaway. You also get 12 tickets to allow your choice of lucky guests (with signed waiver) to take one of two 15-minute joy rides during the reception. (Note that guests under the age of 18 can be included in these joy rides only if they are accompanied by a parent or guardian.) All guests will have access to driver-led “tours” of the limo throughout the day. If you like, we will park the limo in front of each location to let your guests know where they should be. This package includes five hours ($79.00 each additional hour). Remember, we have a six passenger maximum.
Do you offer any special group discounts for contracting multiple vehicles?
N/A
Is there a minimum amount of rental time that is required?
The Hippie Limo has a 3 hour minimum as is hired out on an hourly basis thereafter. The 3 hour minimum is $276 and the additional hourly is $79/hr.
Do you charge for travel time?
Travel charges will depend on whether I will be doing flatland or mountain travel. Generally the charge will be $1.00/mile each direction outside of my 50-mile radius from Boulder. Mountain travel is more complicated as ye olde Microbus has a top mountain climbing speed of 45 mph. Generally mountain travel is $1/minute in any mountain travel (Estes Park, for example).
What is your overtime rate?
My overtime rate is the same as my hourly rate, which is $79/hour.
What (if any) associations are you a member of?
I am a member of the Volkswagen Enthusiasts of Colorado (VWEC.org).

We hired Richard with Hippie Limo last minute when one of our transportation fell through the Monday before our wedding. He was very responsive, professional, and willing to work with us. His VW bus was exactly as described and a huge hit for our wedding party & guests. Hippie Limo was more than what we budgeted but Richard worked with us on the price. Richard drove us all around town and waited while we took photos. We would highly recommend Hippie Limo if you're looking for something fun and unique for your wedding/event.

Wow. Where to even begin. This was the coolest get away car ever. Rich showed up on time with the bus looking out of this world. He opened everything up so we could be in awe of the condition of everything. He was super friendly and talked to us and everyone elae that was intrigued. VWs have been in and out of my family so it was truely awesome to have this time capsule there. EVERYONE loved it and commented on how cool it was. After snapping pictures in it with the wedding party, we loaded up for our departure. Thats when he gave us the remote to control the 1,000 watt stereo! What a trip it was to blast the beatles as we drove off with the full sunroof open. We got to sit back, relax and watch all the stars through the open roof. He even had a blanket for my wife so she wouldnt get chilly and could get the full experience. Best trip ever. If youre debating this, dont. Book it and be ready for an awesome and unforgettable ride. Highly recommend.

The Hippie Limo was a unique and fun way to exit our wedding. The cost was better than a lime, which isn't really our style anyway, and everyone was blown away when it pulled up!
As a long time VW aficionado, this van is one of the most pristine that I have seen and it was a pleasure to roll down the road with the roof rolled back and the wind in our hair!

We greatly appreciated all that the Hippy Limo brought to our wedding. We had planned on it driving my new wife and I away, but couldn't help but have a few others come with us in the awesome ride.
The van is in immaculate condition and made for some great photo opportunities.
I highly recommend if you want something a bit unique, funky and awesome.

The Hippie Limo literally was the perfect surprise ending to our wedding reception festivities. We had discussed what our exit vehicle would be and I just didn't want the standard done-every-day limo exit. Our fabulous wedding coordinator, Gina with Organically You Events, had suggested Hippie Limo to the groom. He wasn't completely sold originally but, after six months of working with Gina on wedding planning, she got to know me well, and convinced him that I would love it. She could not have been more right. We had such a fun reception and as we exited the venue to the street, there was the Hippie Limo waiting for us. What a great non-traditional surprise. I think there's a video somewhere of me jumping up and down like a little girl when I saw it. It was a summer night in Boulder, CO, and the 70s music was blasted for us as all of our friends waved, cheered and blew bubbles (rice and birdseed are apparently "out" now). Then we drove up into the mountains, just because, and listened to music while we watched the stars (the Hippie Limo has a retractable roof). It was fun and romantic and one of my favorite parts of the entire wedding. Richard (the owner/driver) was on time, provided outstanding customer service and was wonderful to work with. I would hire him again just for a fun anniversary drive some day! Thank you Richard!

My new bride and I were surprised and stoked when the Hippie Limo pulled up to take us from our wedding to our hotel. As the son of a 1967 VW Microbus owner it was very special and memorable experience to have the very cool 1965 Hippie Limo pick us up . Richard had the music blasting and our party carried us right on to the bus. It was the perfect transition from the party to the hotel in the back seat of the bus with the stars shining through the open roof, good tunes and my bride and I snuggled up the the bench seat. As I learned later it was a very last minute arrangement with my dad and Richard figuring out the details that same night just before the pickup. Richard showed great flexibility and responsiveness. Due to the ride being a gift I cannot rate the Value. The Hippie Limo was the finishing touch on our wedding day.
