Three of our fantastic Mercedes vehicles

 

You Are in Safe Hands With Executive Cars York

 Our chauffeurs are paid to drive important, rich, famous and business people around in our expensive Mercedes cars, we must assume that the ‘Law of Supply and Demand’ will ensure that only the very best chauffeur firms will survive, Executive Cars York are one of the best chauffeur firms in York.

Our main role is to drive you smoothly, quickly, and accurately to shrink the sometimes tedious task of moving from A to B via a congested road network that’s clogged with a lot of amateur drivers, you may think this sounds arrogant, Perhaps, but some of our secrets which enable us to give a seamless journey experience are as follows.

Forward Planning By Our York Chauffeurs

Our professional chauffeurs will plan the forthcoming journey in detail, looking at possible pinch points, traffic jams, and toll roads,they will calculate how long the journey will take and allow a little extra for unforeseen problems or toilet stops etc.

We will also give our cars a quick health check before setting out and keep a few essentials in the boot in case we hit a problem like a motorway blocked or shut. None of this is exactly rocket science but with a little forward planning of the journey possible problems and exceptional circumstances we can almost guarantee your journey will be uninterrupted.

Our Chauffeurs Always Have A Plan B

When we are planning your route, we always think it’s worth developing a Plan B.

As most major cities are notorious for long running roadworks and associated traffic jams, this is where our forward planning with Google Maps can help, we check all of this before we leave, we also try to plan an alternative route we call this a plan B, we will endeavour to use this If a delay is too long, we have an option at this point to divert your route. However, it sometimes can clear when you are leaving but can change as you get closer; by having planned an alternative route before leaving home you can divert without too much hassle, saving time, money and stress.

A Plan B works for everyday driving too: what would you do if the lorry in front of you shed its load? Or a tractor pulled out of that field? Or the dog on the pavement suddenly dashed out into the road? By processing this information and having a plan to deal with it, you will be able to avoid a significant number of otherwise potentially dangerous situations.

Our professional Chauffeurs Always Look Ahead

Our chauffeurs make it a priority to look further ahead when driving, this allows us to spot any hazards well before everyone else, for example our Mercedes s class has a system that can look at the full journey and constantly analyses traffic well ahead suggesting alternative routes.

This means that we can change lanes in plenty of time, keeping up our average speed and avoiding the sort of last-minute lane changes that cause accidents, delays and annoy other motorists.

The key is to look as far ahead as you can, scanning back all the way to the car in front. This is a constant cycle that unbeknown to the passenger happens constantly with frequent mirror and instrument checks this is the big difference between a normal driver and one of our professional chauffeurs, and at the same time we have the ability if needed to have a conversation with the passenger on a wide range of subjects this is the ultimate and upper range of multi tasking.

Smoothness Is a Priority

The one quality that just about every passenger notices when he or she is being driven by one of our chauffeur is how smooth the journey is. This is partly a function of the driver looking so far ahead and being able to avoid last-second emergency avoidance but also a reflection of their driving technique, but lets not forget the ultra smooth cars we use Mercedes s class limousine versions and the Mercedes Viano Executive ( 7 PASSENGERS )

The best chauffeurs will ease on and off the throttle and steer the car into bends with small, gentle movements of the steering wheel to avoid upsetting the car’s composure.

I personally will also feather the brakes as we come to a halt, releasing the pressure as the car finally stops, enabling their passengers to continue sipping their drinks without spilling a drop on our full nappa leather seats. This last tip is well worth practicing even for normal motorists

Focussed Chauffeur Service

Finally,we as professional chauffeurs are less prone to being distracted than normal drivers.this is because our ultimate aim is to give the best journey possible we are paid to do that.

When a chauffeur is cut-up by another motorist he will stay calm and focus on the job in hand, i cannot remember if i have ever used the horn on my car my main aim is getting my client to the final destination as quietly and calm as i can. i certainly wouldn’t gesticulate and use bad language to critique the other driver’s incompetence.
