Why is a Corporate Sedan Service better Than a Taxi Service?


Today we live in a world where everything is at your fingertips; friends, television, games, videos, maps, email, food, reviews, business and even cars.

We are used to getting what we want, when we want it. The problem with getting something quick is that it is not always quality. The question is, which is more important, quick or quality? I am going to outline why the quality you find with car services is better than the speed associated with taxis or ride sharing apps.

When it is your job to book travel for someone at your office, you know there are countless things to consider. On top of your other important job responsibilities, you spend a lot of time arranging for flights, preferred seat sections, desirable hotels, and optimal room options. But what about their ride from the airport to the hotel, and then back to the airport again when they are ready to head home? Or perhaps they are attending a conference, meeting or meal offsite with clients, how are they getting there? Why not take the extra step and arrange a car service for their ride? The benefits to choosing a car service over a last minute taxi wrap around the block. But don’t worry, unlike a taxi or ride sharing service, no one will need to walk around the block to find their ride. With a corporate sedan service, they will pick up your traveler… at your predetermined time, from their doorstep… everytime.

10 things you get from using a corporate sedan service that you do not get from a taxi or ride sharing service:

1. Advance Planning. Imagine your traveler in a city they rarely visit. It is time to leave the hotel for a meeting but it is rush hour and they cannot get a cab to pick them up, and now they are late. It is frustrating and can make them feel that the trip was poorly organized. With a little advance planning, you can arrange for a corporate car service to be there ready to pick them up anytime, anywhere.

2. Service to all destinations. Certain government or company-policy restrictions make it so in some cities, taxis and ride sharing services are not allowed to drive to or from the airport. And sometimes you may flag down a cab, but they are not interested in taking you to your destination because it is not in the direction they want to go. These are all problems eliminated when you use a corporate car service. When you use a quality service and plan ahead, you can count on the driver to take your traveler exactly where they need to go, and to not break any rules by doing it.

3. Price Quotes. Two words, hidden fees. Not much feels more malicious than when you plan to spend one thing and end up emptying your pockets. Taxi drivers are known to change their polices based on where you are headed, how many people are in the car and even time of day. You cannot always plan on how much the ride will cost, and could end up very disappointed. With a car service you can call or use a helpful online tool to seek out a price quote for a ride. Of course there are always extenuating circumstances, but corporate car services will clearly outline these to you in a way that makes you feel secure and like you are being treated fairly.

4. Reliable drivers.  Not every taxi driver falls into this generalization. More often than not, they are not always easy to have a conversation with, they are not always the best drivers, and they do not always seem to care how satisfied their customer is with the ride. With a corporate car service the experience is opposite. You may pay a little more, but the benefit is a very attentive, skilled driver who is absolutely concerned about my comfort levels.

5. Clean cars. This one doesn’t need much explaining. Picture the back of a cab and picture the back of a corporate sedan.

6. Friendly experience. This goes back to reliable, but takes the conversation element to a new level. With a corporate sedan service, enjoy drivers who are genuinely interested in why you are visiting a city and even someone who may give recommendations to things to do and eat in the area.

7. Safe Environment. Corporate car services care for each and every customer. They take time to interview and qualify drivers to be part of their fleet so they employ licensed, insured, skilled professional drivers.

8. Modern Luxuries. Oftentimes it is the little things that mean the most, especially if you have grown accustomed to them in your everyday life. With a corporate car service you can count on having plenty of leg room, an empty, spacious trunk for your bags, a functioning air conditioning system and windows that not only roll down but don’t have stickers all over them. Not to mention your driver will likely have water bottles, mints and even a car charger for your phone.

9. Timely arrival and optimal route. When you have worked with a car service to pick up your traveler, you can not only count on an on time arrival and not only that, but that they will take the most direct route. These driver’s priority is to get you to your destination safely and quickly. Look at that… quick and quality wrapped up in one point!

10. Personalized Service. With enough notice, many corporate car services can arrange for a sedan or limo to have personalized items for your traveler. Are they picking up a client who loves a certain soda? Simply request that it is available for the ride, customer service is the benchmark of most corporate car services. Personalized service may be my last point, but it is definitely not the least. Because as you know, good customer service is what keeps you coming back.

When you spend this much time arranging the big stuff like flights and hotels for your traveler, why not take the time to enhance the small details too?

If everything goes right for a trip, you may not hear about it, but regular human behavior dictates that if something does go wrong, a meeting is missed because a cab didn’t show up, or time is wasted time sitting at the airport for 45 minutes in a taxi line, it is likely you will hear about it. Taking the extra step to arrange for a corporate car service not only makes the traveler feel well taken care of, but it makes you look like a rock star!

Quotes

My company had an international artist picked up at JFK and dropped off in Philadelphia, and the artist had the best time. The driver kept in touch with me throughout the day, so we could plan for arrival, and our artist had the most wonderful experience with the driver. That’s really astounding considering our artist had just gotten off a red-eye from across the world. Thank you so very much!
