Over the last year, rideshare apps have been on the rise. People can turn on their phone, and with a touch of the screen, they have someone on their way to pick them up. Uber—a prominent rideshare start-up—is an alternative mode of transportation that is inexpensive and can help minimize pollution or protect you from drunk driving. But what are some of the differences between calling Uber and scheduling a limo pickup? When it comes to your next travel to the airport, which one should you pick? Here are some things to think about to help you make the decision:
When you pick up your phone and call for an Uber driver, you never know who you’re going to get. Most drivers are regular people trying to earn a little bit of extra money. Depending on the app you use, these people never undergo a background check or formal training. On the other hand, we are very careful about the people we hire for our drivers. We expect our drivers to friendly, courteous, and professional. We guarantee that they have a clean record and lots of experience.
When compared to our fully inspected, well-maintained vehicles, rideshare vehicles don’t look so great. Although you may end up with a clean, great-working vehicle to enjoy, you may also end up with something that won’t be so pleasant. With the setup of Uber, it’s hard to inspect or guarantee the condition of the vehicles.
We want you to feel comfortable when driving with us, so make sure that you’re protected in the case of an accident. As a professional driving service, we have a large liability insurance coverage to make sure that you’re covered in the case of any accident. When choosing to ride with Uber, you should make sure that they are properly covered as well.
Before using a rideshare app, it’s important to check the legality of the business. They should have the proper business permits and licenses, and they should be in accordance with city ordinances and regulations. Many cities are cracking down on these services and handing out fines to individuals who are not legally operating. If you don’t want to worry about this, a professional driving service would be the perfect answer for you.
When you’re looking to save money on your travel, a rideshare like Uber is a good choice. On the other hand, a professional driving service will ensure that your driver and vehicle are up to par, you’re properly covered by company insurance, and the service is legal.
