Chauffeured Transportation Is Executive Customer Service

Posted by Nate Strong on Wed, Nov 14, 2012

Dedicated to Service

For many, using a chauffeured car service is quite simple. The reservation is made, and when the time comes for your car to pick you up you get in and let the chauffeur drive you to your destination.  For the passenge,r it really is an enjoyable and easy experience, as it should be. However what you may not be aware of is how much time and preparation goes in to each reservation. From the dispatcher all the way to the chauffeur, there are many people who work together to make every chauffeured experience the best one possible for the passenger.

More Than A Driver

Chauffeurs are not merely drivers. A successful executive chauffeur is a professional, one who goes above and beyond to provide excellent customer service, all of the time. Accordingly, such professionalism requires thoughtful preparation. A chauffeur may have several reservations the next day but his work starts the previous night.  Chauffeurs must plan out their travel and know exactly where they are picking up and dropping off their passengers. They must be knowledgeable of the area and be aware of any updated traffic patterns. Being stuck in an unfortunate traffic scenario without any alternate routes while a passenger is onboard is not an option. Chauffeurs cannot simply rely on a smart phone for directions; they have to know the city in which they are operating.
