Secret Driving Tips from a Chauffeur

Secret Driving Tips from a Chauffeur

Ensuring Your in Safe Hands

As chauffeurs are paid to drive important and rich people around in expensive cars, it’s reasonable to assume that the ‘Law of Supply and Demand’ will ensure that only the very best survive.

Their role is to drive smoothly, quickly, and accurately to shrink the irksome business of moving from A to B via a congested road network that’s clogged with amateurs. Arrogant? Perhaps, but let’s look at some of their secrets to see if there is anything we can learn from them, shall we?

Planning

A good chauffeur 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.

They will also give their car a quick health check before setting out and keep a few essentials in the boot in case they hit a problem. None of this is exactly rocket science, but how many times have you set off on a long journey with only a vague idea of where you are going and the low-fuel warning light flashing?

Have a Plan B

When you’re planning your route, it’s always worth developing a Plan B.

As London is a major city it is notorious for long running roadworks and associated traffic jams, this is where Google Maps can help – checking it before you leave can help with a plan B. If a delay is too long, then you have an option 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 me 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.

Looking Ahead

Chauffeurs make it a priority to look further ahead, when driving. This allows them to spot any hazards well before everyone else.

This means that they can change lanes in plenty of time, keeping up their average speed and avoiding the sort of last-minute lane changes that cause accidents 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 – interspersed with frequent mirror and instrument checks – that becomes second nature very quickly.

Smoothness

The one quality that just about every passenger notices when he or she is being driven by a top-flight 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.

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.

The very best will also feather the brakes as they come to a halt, releasing the pressure as the car finally stops, enabling their passengers to continue sipping champagne without spilling a drop on the butter-soft leather seats. This last tip is well worth practicing, even if, like mine, your passengers are more likely to be drinking coffee out of a flask!

Focus

Finally, chauffeurs are less prone to being distracted than you and I. While I’m not suggesting for a moment that you spend every journey is stony-faced silence, staying focused can be a great trick to adopt.

When a chauffeur is cut-up by a sales executive in their rep-mobile he or she will stay calm and focus on the job in hand, which is getting their client to the final destination as quietly and unobtrusively as they can. They certainly wouldn’t gesticulate and use good Anglo-Saxon language to critique the other driver’s incompetence, would they?

Why Every Bride Should Care About Their Wedding Car

Wedding Engagements London

Wedding transport has traditionally been the domain of the groom, and whilst we’re all for giving grooms free reign, there are a few things brides need to know about their transport; it isn’t all about what’s underneath the hood! There are so many reasons why you need to choose a reputable car hire company for your wedding and many of these reasons might not be on your man’s radar.

The Smart Bride’s Guide to Wedding Cars

Among the numerous items that the busy bride-to-be has on her checklist is the transportation set-up for the wedding party. The most popular option is to simply invest in wedding car services — an option that actually makes sense because of the convenience, glamor and safety it can bring to the occasion.

Renting a chauffeur driven car for your wedding can make a great day even dreamier. To make sure you get the most out of the experience, take note of the following strategies from brides who have pulled off successful weddings and ridden off into the sunset aboard a stylish car.

Be an Early Bird

Brides don’t want to deal with last-minute surprises. So, she prepares early, does her research and shops around months before the big day. She talks to potential service providers and books the date once she founds the perfect one—before another enterprising bride beats her to it.

Be A Savvy Dealer

A bride never believes in promises unless they’re written on paper and signed by both parties. She scrutinises the fine print and is not afraid to ask questions when some things need clarification. Most of all, she doesn’t blush when the talk is about the price. She studies the payment terms and conditions and may even be bold enough to ask for a discount or upgrades, such as complimentary champagne.

A Smart Bride is Unapologetic

A bride doesn’t mind if she may look like a discriminating customer, because she is. So, the smart bride will nicely ask to inspect the actual vehicle in person before signing the contract. She may talk to the chauffeur to be assigned to her party and get the limo rental office’s hotline so she knows where to call in case an emergency comes up during her special day.

Questions Every Bride has About the Wedding Car

Although organising a wedding car is usually tasked to the groom, there are six questions you need to ask to ensure you have the right car for the job.

What’s the Theme?

Arriving in a white Maserati will set the scene for a sexy, sleek wedding; whereas a black Mercedes just screams understated elegance. The bride generally gets ready at her parent’s home, so the car is the first official wedding ‘setting’ for her and her bridesmaids. It’s so important to choose the right car because it really sets the mood for the rest of the day.

How Many Cars

This all comes down to your budget and the size of your bridal party. For smaller weddings, couples’ book three cars, one for the bride and father-of-the-bride, one for the bridesmaids and one for the groom and his groomsmen. For bigger weddings, couples will book four – the extra transports just the groom and his best man. More and more, couples are choosing to book another car to take the groom’s parents to the wedding, which is a really nice gesture.

Who Rides with Who? And Who Leaves with Who?

When it comes to who rides with who this is completely up to the bride and groom, but traditionally the bridesmaids ride with the mother-of-the-bride, the bride rides with her father and the groom and the best man team up.

When leaving the wedding, traditionally, the bride and groom leave the church first; this car should then be used for photographs. If the budget is tight, you can opt just to keep one car for the bride and groom and transfer the rest of the bridal party in cabs.

Is There an Order for the Bridal Party to Arrive

The ushers should be first to arrive, then the guests. Shortly before the ceremony’s official start, the groom and best man should arrive. Next comes the bridesmaids and mother-of-the-bride and finally the bride and her father make their big entrance!

Should We Decorate the Wedding Car?

This is completely up to the bride and groom, but if you’re using a beautiful hire car, it’s probably not a great idea to decorate with silly string and toilet paper! As long as the car has been stocked with champagne and flowers, you can be sure the bride and groom will leave happy.
