Today I am going to share with you and highlight the great importance of picking your limo drivers and not just randomly "getting them." Everything we will talk about in this blog will be based on a true story-example.
For starters, can you think of some basic reasons you need to have the best limousine driver available? Right off the top my head, I can think of a few: experience in driving, politeness (you don't want to have a miserable person driving you) knowledge of locations within the city, overall safety. These are some main reasons you should pay attention to the type of driver you have for your limousine rental. Didn't even give it much thought.
Here's a true story (happened last Sunday) about how one of our drivers (Russell) was able to prevent passengers/clients getting in the middle of an ugly and dangerous situation. A group of church members decided to go after the Sunday service and have lunch at a restaurant in Columbia. Once they got there, Russell noticed a fight was about to break. He could tell - having worked with people for so long - that something didn't look right. So he quickly put the passengers safely back in the limousine and drove away until the area was clear and safe again. After the heat was gone, he returned the passengers in front of the restaurant, and waited until everyone was inside and everything was okay.
When you are at any job, you need to have great instincts and when it comes to handling with people and safety, your instincts need to be greater than ever before. A fight was not taking place when they arrived, but Russell could sense that something bad would happen from the behavior of a few people at the restaurant. Who knows? Had the limousine parked in front of the restaurant and passengers got off, there could be a very bad incident. I mean, these are strange days we live in, and considering that the passengers in our limo were Christian - religious people, you never know what could take place. So it's always good to have a third eye watching out for things and making sure all customers are safe. Safe driving is good, and we obviously have proved we are #1 in Columbia, SC when it comes to that test. However regular every day safety is equally important. Thinking fast, being smart and making decissions within a few seconds, is probally a few of the qualities that a limousine driver should have.
Here at Limo Rental Columbia we are extremely proud of our driver Russell and it's people like him that make our limousine company the greatest in Columbia, South Carolina.
God bless you all and please stay safe!
