The Benefits of Hiring a Chauffeur over Using Ride-Sharing Apps

Truth be told, you can’t always depend on ride-sharing apps like Lyft or Uber, especially if time is of the essence.

One way to ensure that you get to your destination on time, safe and sound and in style is to pre-book a chauffeured vehicle.

The Added Benefits of Hiring a Chauffeur

But punctuality isn’t the only reason why a chauffeur-driven vehicle is a better option.

No offense to the hardworking drivers that work for ride-sharing apps, but one really must consider their own security when using such services. Ride-sharing services – while useful enough – don’t really have a comprehensive screening system in place that gauges the credibility of their drivers. As such, you can never really be certain that the driver you get is someone who actually has the experience they claim.

With a professional transportation company however, the drivers are vetted, interviewed and asked to undergo drug screening tests. So you truly get the best from the bunch.

Not to mention that with a professional company, you have the assurance that the vehicle you get is exactly according to your requirements.

Let’s say for example, that you’re traveling with pets, or with a child who may need a car seat, a professional transportation service would be able to provide just the car you need (one that allows a car seat). With a ride-sharing app, you have no choice when it comes to the vehicle.

Finally, with a professional chauffeur service, you’d get a vehicle that would be well-maintained. Many independent contractors that work with ride-sharing apps often use their personal cars for service. Again, whether you get a clean car is a gamble.
