Professional Chauffeur Car Service – an Ordinary and Necessary Business Expense

In the past few years, numerous transportation apps offering car services have cropped up. Many travelers might be fooled into thinking one car service for the day is as good as any.

However, these imitation chauffeur car services are not private, safe or insured. Nor do they offer the convenience or luxury of a professional car service or chauffeur service. And so, they hardly contend as a serious transportation option for serious travelers.

As a result, many companies are looking for ways to reduce business expenses when it comes to travel. You can imagine, many of these companies are exploring the use of a traditional Private Car Service. The questions often asked is “Why do we need a private car service for the day?”

It’s a legitimate question in today’s economic environment. In order to be tax-deductible, business transportation expenses much be both “ordinary and necessary.” According to the IRS, “An ordinary expense is one that is common and accepted in your trade or business. A necessary expense is one that is helpful and appropriate for your trade or business.”

But this just touches on a larger question as to whether or not a Private Car Service provides value in line with its cost. Let’s review the reasons private car service is so desirable. So many companies today do believe that a Privte Car Service is both an ordinary and necessary expense. Soon, you will too.

Reliability and Safety Matters

Hiring a professional driver with a well-maintained vehicle is everything. It can make the difference between making and missing an important meeting.

This could be for when your company is sending an executive to a key meeting. Or for when flying in a potential investor. Or even when bringing in a prospective executive for a job interview. No matter the scenario, you don’t want to leave a lot to chance.

Using a Private Car Service can minimize the likelihood of a mechanical breakdown, traffic delay or other unexpected occurrences. A professional and experienced chauffeur operating a clean, modern and safe executive sedan offers security. They can provide a sense of comfort and security to your executives, investors and clients.

This can reduce the stress of the travel experience. But it can also help keep travelers at their best for important meetings.

Image and Brand Matter

We all know the saying, “You only get one chance to make a first impression.” A Private Car Service conveys a sense of elegance, class and professionalism. It makes the traveler know that he or she is valued by your company.

If your traveler has multiple stops to make while in the area, it’s no issue. While this may befuddle a novice driver, professional chauffeurs excel with complicated itineraries.

A corporate car service is a premium service. It can help maintain a traveler’s sense of importance. It can reinforce a professional image for your company. And this stands whether for simple A-to-B journeys or more complex routes.

If you have incoming travelers who are new to the area, a Private Car Service can allow them to relax after their flight. Save them from having to worry about logistics. In a new city:

  • Renting a car can be time consuming.
  • Hailing a taxi can be stressful.
  • Navigating public transportation is hardly high-end.
  • Figuring out how to get to a hotel and where to park can be a headache.

With private car service, everything is sorted beforehand.

Professional chauffeurs pride themselves on knowing the best routes and traffic conditions. As such, they often know exactly how long it will take to arrive at a destination. A professional chauffeur can meet the traveler at the airport. There, they can help gather and load luggage and make sure they get to the hotel or conference as expediently as possible.

These are, of course, just a few of the perks of professional chauffeur service. But they’re hardly the only ones.
