Who will drive my car?
All Safe Ride chauffeurs are retired Police Officers, Troopers and Federal agents who have worked the NY area and in Florida for years. That’s why we are “The Safest Ride in Town!”
May I Set up a Corporate Account?
Yes, Corporate Accounts are welcome.
How far in advance should I make a Reservation?
Please reserve at least 48 hours in advance.
However, we can and do work on a shorter schedule when needed.
Why would I hire a Safe Ride chauffeur as opposed to hiring a limousine?
The best way to answer this question is with another question; if something unpleasant occurred, who would you and your family rather be with, a regular limo driver or a law enforcement professional with years of experience in emergency situations?
The choice is clear!
I only need a chauffeur occasionally. Is that a problem?
No problem at all. We will drive you a few times a week, a few times a month or a few times a year. It’s up to you.
Can I get the same driver each time?
Yes, we will provide the same driver as often as possible.
What if my meeting ends early, how do I contact the driver?
When we confirm your reservation we will give you your driver’s name and mobile number.
You can text or call your driver directly.
What does the chauffeur wear?
Business attire. However, if you prefer the driver to wear casual attire, just let us know. It’s up to you.
How do you charge?
