Whether you need a client picked up at the airport or are taking an important client to dinner, hiring a chauffeured transportation provider to provide corporate transportation is not only a nice gesture, but a practical decision.

Most executives agree they prefer utilizing a car service because of vehicle options and comfortability. Relax or work from the back seat while your chauffeur does takes care of the driving.
If you plan to hire chauffeured transportation for an upcoming business trip or seminar, here are a few considerations you will want to ask about:
–A licensed transportation company is required to have commercial insurance in the range of $1.5 million to $5 million depending upon the State and size of the vehicle. Ask what type of insurance coverage the provider has. You can also request a Certificate of Insurance for inspection. This is totally normal for transportation providers so don’t feel awkward about asking. If they are unwilling to provide this, count that as a major red flag.
–Check the license or Operating Authority of the transportation provider. This will validate their legal status to operate. Transportation companies are licensed by their respective states. This licensing is usually handled by the Public Utilities Commission of the State. Search for your State’s Public Utilities Commission website. You can also ask for a copy of your service provider’s Operating Authority Certificate. This is less accurate than searching the website as they are issued for a period of years and can be suspended or revoked.
–Want to learn more about your potential transportation service provider? There is no better way than looking at the testimonials from their previous customers. Check review sites on social media, Yelp, TripAdvisor and the Better Business Bureau. This should give you a clear vision of the company.
