What does Chauffeur Driven really mean?

Posted on: January 22nd, 2016 by grandave No Comments

There are so many ways to be driven, it’s hard to differentiate what sets the Black Car Service companies apart from the rideshares and cabs and everything else on the market today.

The key is professionalism.

To be a quality chauffeured transportation company, the standards must meet the high bar set by an industry that has been around for over 100 years. The Chauffeur profession began around the turn of the century, when only the most wealthy could afford cars. No experience or training was required because it wasn’t available and the New York Times complained that “…young men of no particular ability, who have been earning from $10 to $12 a week, are suddenly elevated to salaried positions paying from $25 to $50.”

That has all changed. Chauffeur driven companies like Grand Avenue have set up intense multi-day training for all of their professional drivers. The training courses cover a myriad of categories, including technology, navigation, customer service and, most importantly, safety. Aside from the beautiful kept fleet and sharply dressed employees, professional chauffeured transportation companies stand out from the crowd of the new rideshare model that has come on the market because we take the time and the effort to call ourselves professional.

Just as it was in 1906 (when the previously cited NYT article ran), Chauffeurs are professional career driven individuals looking to provide the best possible customer service for the clientele.
