Reading Chicago limo reviews helps many travelers pick the right limousine and black car service in the Windy City. Especially, if you are out of town and not familiar with the best local ground transportation companies. However, if you rely on limo reviews, finding the top rated limo service in Chicago may require some homework.
There are hundreds of websites where clients can submit feedback and share their experience. One can find Chicago limo reviews on Facebook, Yelp, Google My Business, TripAdvisor, Manta, Yellowpages, Choice, Angie’s List, Trustpilot,, Foursquare, Twitter, Superpages, etc. The list where you can find car service reviews is endless.
We, at Chief Chicago Limo, will try to show you on which review platforms to focus. Trust us, not all of them deserve your attention. In addition to that, we will touch a few major topics about reviews in general.
Should You Trust And Read Chicago Limo Reviews And Online Review Sites In General
In general, and specifically for the limousine industry, reviews are very important. Unless someone referred you to a business, the best way to go is to check clients’ feedback online. The purpose of reviews is to influence consumer decisions, strengthen a company’s credibility, gain customer trust, and encourage people to interact with the company. That builds a relationship between the business and its clients, leading to more sales and profits. According to a study by BrightLocal, nearly 80% of consumers trust online review sites as much as personal recommendations, and almost 75% of these say positive reviews make them trust a business more.
However, it all depends on what kind of person you are and what your expectations are. For example, older baby boomers will have less trust in online limo reviews while younger people will trust Chicago limo reviews.
Which Online Review Websites To Trust And Which To Avoid
Avoid YELP!!! We encourage clients not to leave us reviews on Yelp. The reason is, that Yelp keeps on removing reviews. Their explanation is that only active Yelpers should leave reviews. And by active, they mean people who constantly use their platform for finding businesses and leave reviews. So, even if you like our limo service and would like to share your experience and help us grow, DO NOT do it on Yelp if you are not Yelper. Your time and review will go to waste and will not help us.
Again, avoid Yelp!!! We have been harassed by Yelp to advertise on their platform for years. After refusing to do so, they removed 10-12 limo reviews from our clients. Yelp does not really care if a customer has to find the business with the best reviews. If you pay them to advertise, they will list you on top of the search result even if you have 3.5 ratings. Those are the so called sponsored listings or the ones with “AD” ( for advertised) on the front. FYI, we are working on a project to show you that Yelp’s review software does not work. Stay tuned.
Trust review websites like TripAdvisor and Google My Business Listing. There, your Chicago limo review can really make a difference and help the next traveler pick up the right black car service. TripAdvisor is the best travel website. Every year, they award the highest rated businesses with the badge Travelers’ Choice Award. Those two platforms are enough if you are willing to write a limo review. In addition to that, they can really help a business grow and attract more clients.

Are Reviews Important For Businesses
In some cases, yes. For example, Chicago limo reviews are very important for us. They are a proof we are doing a great job. We work hard to deliver a high quality service that matches the premium our clients pay. On top of that, we are a local company which relies on word of mouth recommendations and referrals. Usually smaller and mom-and-pop businesses tend to pay more attention to reviews.
In other cases, no. Some global and giant businesses are not affected from the reviews and may not even care about reviews. Look at UBER and Walmart for example. They have thousands of negative reviews online but are still in business, have loyal clientele and ring in billions of dollars. Check UBER’s reviews on Sitejabber, Trustpilot, Yelp and you will be shocked.
