What’s it like riding in a S Class?

  |   Executive Transportation   |   No comment

THE MERCEDES S550 IS THE MODEL FOR LUXURY TRANSPORTATION. FURTHERMORE, IT IS ALSO THE FLAGSHIP MODEL OF LUXURY RIDE 'S FLEET; ALWAYS CRUISING AROUND NYC.   AS A RESULT, WE WANT TO TRY AND SHARE WITH YOU WHAT IT IS LIKE RIDING IN LUXURY.   First of all, the S-class line has always been synonymous with luxury. And it continues that proud tradition. The rear-wheel-drive sedan comes standard with a 449-hp 4.7-liter twin-turbo V-8. All-wheel drive is optional. The sleek coupe has the V-8 and all-wheel drive. Especially relevant, this vehicle is quite nimble for it's size. A rear-drive cabriolet is available with the same engine. Luxury Ride just loves the Mercedes S550.

Dry Run: Major Keys to Event Transport Success, Vol. #1

  |   Event Planning, Executive Transportation   |   No comment

A "Dry Run" is one of the most POWERFUL and Productive preps you can do to ensure your Event Transport in NYC is a Success.   A "Dry Run" can be done without the Full Fleet of cars that have been booked for the Event Transport. However, we do suggest doing the Run with a few "Event Captains" that will assist the other drivers on Event Day.   We suggest doing the Run 72 to 48 hours before Event Day to keep things fresh and accurate. Things change quickly in big cities like NYC. Consequently, the last thing you want is to have expired guidelines.   Try to do a Run even if its not in the budget. We suggest doing a Run with at least ONE vehicle so you can get a "feel" of the Event Route.    A DRY RUN WILL HELP YOUR LEADERS AND DRIVERS BE IN SYNC During an event, it is CRUCIAL that all vendors are ON THE...

Luxury Channel EP #2: What Separates Luxury Ride from Another Transportation Vendor?

  |   Executive Transportation, Luxury Channel   |   No comment

IN THE CUSTOMER SERVICE INDUSTRY, A CONSUMER HAS TWO CHOICES: HIGH-END OR AVERAGE.   TAKE EXECUTIVE TRANSPORTATION IN NYC AS AN EXAMPLE.   LUXURY RIDE IS PROVIDING YOU WITH THE SAME SERVICE AS A WAVED-DOWN TAXI OR UBER: TRANSPORTATION. SO WHY IS THERE A PRICE DIFFERENCE?   One Reason: THE EXPERIENCE.   The Business World today is becoming filled with new innovators who provide a large landscape of different services. It is great to see so much desire out there - but at what cost?   The paradox of Customer-Service, especially Executive Transportation, based companies is that many people can perform or provide said service. In addition, this means that some of those people may be trying to just make a dollar rather than provide a trend-setting service. Furthermore, it is those people who are entering the industry of Executive Transportation in N YC that simultaneously break it down.   LUXURY RIDE ASPIRES TO BREAK THROUGH THE MOLD OF NORMALCY.   Constantly, Luxury Ride is working...

What’s the Difference Between a “Driver” & a “Chauffeur”?

  |   Executive Transportation, Hospitality Industry, Luxury Channel, Solutions   |   No comment

IT IS NO SECRET;   A LUXURY CAR SERVICE COSTS MORE THAN A NORMAL DRIVER. HERE IN NYC, A CHAUFFEUR IS WORTH MORE THAN A DRIVER.   AT LUXURY RIDE, WE PROVIDE AN EXPERIENCE, NOT JUST A CAR RIDE.   SO WHAT IS THE REAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A "CHAUFFEUR" AND THE OTHER DRIVERS?    EXPERIENCE   First of all, EXPERIENCE is a major key. Luxury Ride has spent time looking for our "Model" Chauffeur. We do not rush hiring - we want to make sure the Chauffeur we are enlisting is experienced. Especially relevant in NYC, it is important that your vendor knows the ins-and-outs. Knows where to go, generally, without having to GPS. Knowing backroads and alternate routes faster than the Navigational System. Knowing how to treat a passenger.   Consequently, our quarrel with taxis and companies such as Uber is that; probably, anyone can become a driver. Our man Tony who worked five years in the Finance Department of a big Corporation decided he wants...
