When it comes to transportation, there are quite a few options when you do not want to do the driving, from ride apps, taxis, buses, and limo or luxury cars. Where you may not think there is a difference, there is. Today we at A Limo World would like to discuss the differences between chauffeurs and drivers.
Driver Job Description
Drivers simply operate a vehicle, where as a chauffeur is a professional, hired for driving and other services. Anyone can be a driver for the app services or a taxi company, with little experience and requirements, nearly anyone qualifies. Generally, the basic guidelines include, being at least 21 years of age, own and operate a 4-door vehicle that is a 2009 or newer, have a valid driver license and insurance. Drivers merely focus on getting from one destination to another as quickly as possible and rarely go above and beyond.
Chauffeur (Personal Driver) Duties & Responsibilities
Chauffeurs are hired professionals who maintain poised professionalism. These operatives specializing in customer service and as professionals focused on customer care, they do everything in their power to ensure their passengers are safely enjoying the experience. Chauffeurs are typically trained in a number of areas in addition to defensive driving. They also ensure world-class customer support day after day is delivered.
Luxury Chauffeur Driven Vehicles
To make the experience all the more first-class, chauffeurs use luxury vehicles; from limousines, party buses, town cars etc. For example, at A Limo World, we have our 2018 corvette limo and phantom antique car. These luxury cars are used to accommodate a number of passengers of all ages with comfort, style and safety. Additionally, these vehicles are equipped with special features and options to make the experience all the more memorable. The company hiring chauffeurs ensure the vehicles are properly cared for and maintained.
Taxis are generic, and the quality is unmatched when comparing the driver’s vehicle to the chauffeur’s vehicle. The app ride services do not have any maintenance regulations, and as mentioned, as long as they are not over 10 years old and have four doors, they qualify. Unlike chauffeur-operated vehicles, these cars can easily breakdown from maintenance neglect, causing delays.
Customer Service of Chauffeur VS Driver
As we touched on, drivers are not necessarily customer service oriented. The drivers are paid by the ride, the more ride they give, the more money they make. They are eager to get the passenger to their destination as quickly as possible and offer little extra effort to help their customers with any other aspect of the ride. Prioritizing the customer service, chauffeurs wants best for their clients, and make the experience more wholesome. As chauffeurs provide outstanding customer support, you have the first-rate executive transportation services.
