Top 10 Reasons to Choose a Private Car Service

Private car service vs Uber: choosing the right transportation is important, no matter the occasion. If you want to arrive in style, the best option is to hire a private car service. Here are 10 reasons why:

  • Personal Safety
    When you hire a private car or limousine service, you know you’re in good hands. That’s because professional transportation companies take the time to vet their employees through comprehensive background investigations. Some transportation companies take it one step further and require their drivers to undergo intensive training before they get behind the wheel. Compare that commitment to service with Uber’s which recently added some much-needed safety features to their app to be used WHILE passengers are in the car. Even with the new safety features, experts warn the changes amount to small steps toward a safer rider experience.
  • Save Time
    Hiring a private limo service saves time, and potentially a lot of it. Instead of contacting Uber on the spur of the moment, plan ahead and schedule a ride with a private service.
  • Get the Most Ride for Your Money
    Uber’s fare estimator will give you an estimated price range for your travel, but it doesn’t include additional costs that may be incurred. Uber riders have reported sudden price hikes in heavy traffic. This means that your estimated price might be way off for the same distance during traffic jams and other unexpected road hazards. That doesn’t happen with private transportation companies.
  • Dependability
    Face it, private transportation companies are more dependable than Uber. Companies like Boston Corporate Coach™ hold chauffeurs to the highest service standards. We go one step further and institute more corporate measures than any other ground transportation company to ensure consistently superior chauffeur service around the world.
  • Stress-Free Travel
    When you hire a private transportation company, your car will wait for you and get you to your destination on time. That means you don’t have to worry about anything other than whether you’ve brought the right book.
  • Luxury
    Luxury can only be found with private transportation companies because it’s not high on the list of priorities for Uber. That company focuses on completing as many rides in as little time possible. Not so with private limo services, especially Boston Corporate Coach™ where luxury and service are priorities.
  • Insurance
    Almost anyone can drive for Uber. All you need is a car and a smartphone app. This fact is controversial for a number of reasons, not the least of which is driver’s insurance. Hiring a legit car company will ease your fears. Professional transportation companies cover both their drivers and vehicles with ample insurance through the company.
  • Navigating to Your Location
    Many Uber drivers do not have access to updated navigation tools and the company doesn’t provide or require them to. Not so with professional transportation companies. Most offer updated navigation tools, as well as other technological innovations like advanced online reservation capabilities.
  • Group Transportation
    If you’re traveling with a group of friends and family, finding a vehicle large enough using Uber is hit or miss, and you may wind up having to order multiple vehicles.  When you book your transportation with us, you can be sure that our drivers will arrive in a luxury SUV, Van, Mini Coach, Stretch Limo or even Bus that can accommodate large groups.
  • Guaranteed to Arrive on Time
    Uber offers its drivers such flexibility that they can log off the system at any time. This can be a bad thing for customers as a driver may choose to go offline when they are urgently needed. Choosing a private company assures you of a ride whenever you need it because you can make your transportation reservations in advance.
