The rise in popularity of private ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft has corporate event planners asking the question:
“Is a corporate car service worth it when my traveling executives could call an Uber?”
Let’s take a minute and look at it this way: Would you say to your CEO, “Ah just catch a taxi.”? NOPE. Don’t ask them to call an Uber. Sure, the service has benefits: The app is streamlined and simple, and users are given the opportunity to select the level of service (and the associated tiered pricing) desired from a basic carpool to an executive luxury experience from a commercially licensed driver. But there are also a number of drawbacks that may lead diplomats and traveling executives to choose U.S. Sedan Service over Uber.
U.S. Sedan Service can pick up executives and diplomats from any airport.
Some local licensing regulations prohibit Uber drivers from providing airport pickup services. Uber can see your executive to the airport, but then what? Hire a corporate car service in Washington DC to pick him up. Our licensed and professionally trained chauffeurs are guaranteed to provide curbside dropoff and pickup, too.
Uber service requires an Uber account.
Traveling executives left to rely on Uber for their business travel are required to download the app, enable GPS services, and request a ride, every time. Not so when you choose to hire a professional sedan. U.S. Sedan Service works directly with event planners before and during travel to schedule exact pickup locations and times, so more time is spent doing business and less, waiting to be picked up.
Our professional chauffeurs know where they’re going.
GPS location services aren’t perfect, and more often than not an Uber driver is just a regular guy with only a vague knowledge of the general area. Our team of dedicated executive transportation professionals have spent countless hours training, studying maps, and driving from northern Virginia to the District of Columbia, and DC to Maryland — U.S. Sedan promises to get your VIPs from one engagement to the next, on time and in style.
“Well, when you put it like that… Decision, made. We’ll hire:
U.S. Sedan Service for all of our executive transportation needs.”
