What are some of the most common types of limousines available for hire?

For example, the business owner may have started with a limited budget and therefore had to buy about two or three cars to begin with. Years of operation may also be another factor. A business that has been around for over ten years may not have the same number and variety as one that has been around for only a year.
With that being said, there are some common types that you are bound to find in most areas. They are; stretch sedan limousines, SUV limousines, party buses and Hummer limousines. The Lincoln Town Car is widely regarded as the most common type of limousine for hire.
