  How to Choose a Luxury Car Service in NYC: Why Video is important   The Problem:   The over saturation of the Car Service Industry has caused a deep level of mistrust for the consumer, especially NYC.  Any average joe with moderate credit and access to the Internet can claim to be a Professional Transportation Company! These Amateurs have tainted the Industry's name and lowered the expectations of the consumer.   4 WAYS AMATEURS HAVE TAINTED THE INDUSTRY:   1. Continuously Arriving Late Why does your car arrive late? In our experience it is because of a lack of or breakdown of communication.    2. Using Old & Dirty Vehicles Why does my Car Service send me old cars? Because quality is not high enough on their list of importance.             3. Lack Of or Poor Customer Service Why does my driver make me feel uncomfortable? Lack of proper training and chauffeur education   4. Downright Dishonesty Why does my provider tell me the car will be...

WE LIKE SHARING OUR EXPERIENCE.   YVONNE CHOURINARD, FOUNDER OF PATAGONIA, ONCE SAID (PARAPHRASED), "IF YOU FIGURED OUT SOMETHING THAT WORKS, SHARE IT"  The Event Planning Industry, along with the Transportation Industry, is extremely competitive.

When arriving to the terminal, it is only natural to desire a seamless and easy pick-up from your driver. Yet, due to the multiple entrances/exits, “seamless” seems unattainable.   There are two things that Executives desire when traveling: Punctuality Minimum-stress levels when concerning transportation from Point A to Point...
