Should I have fewer limousines than I need or more?

limousine-fleetSo in today’s article, I will touch briefly on a question that has been bugging me for the last few years. Which is: would I rather have more limousines and risk having those empty and not used on a daily basis? Or should I have fewer vehicles which would minimize insurance expenses, paying to service them and all that? Which is better? 

Many times, that’s the same question we ask our selves in our daily lives, which of course has a different format. Many times we wonder: should I work harder to have more things, even though I need fewer things for me? Should I risk going overboard with success and not know what to do with it? I know, these may seem as stupid questions and concerns one may have. But the lazy ones, will always have this fear and question in their minds.

So again my question is to you: Would you rather have fewer vehicles that are always booked, or more vehicles that may even stay in the driveway a few times in a week?

I know you are probably wondering why we are making this third post for today. Weren’t two posts good enough? Well, note quite. I think we have mentioned many important things so far in regards to our industry, customer service and the way operators should be working their luxury limousines. What we haven’t talked about as a whole though, is the qualities that make a luxury transportation company better than another. What are the key components to make my limousine services better than all of my competitor’s? Is it just pure luck or can I do something on my end to ensure a greater customer experience and business relationship?luxury-limousine

These are all very common questions. I believe that we are all very interested in improving our selves and the way our businesses operate. No one wants to stay in one place forever and do the same thing over and over again. We all want to evolve and that is a very beautiful thing. Whenever I talk about these topics with my colleagues and at big limousine events, my mind always goes back to the greatest operator I have met so far, based in South Carolina. Limo services Columbia is by far the company I look up to and admire. So, there are certain things we all can do both as employers and employees to make our business more profitable and more efficient in the long run:

In this post, we will talk about monetizing your limo business in all aspects. That’s right! Here you are going to get some financial management information to run your business better and more efficiently. We are not business people or even have any corporate experience. But we understand money and the importance of keeping your business profitable for many more years to come. christmas-holidays-for-the-limousine-industry

So what we will talk about in this second post for today (for the first one, go here) is taking advantage of existing holidays and common activities that people tend to do in these happy months. Unless you have been living under a rock for the last 30 years, you probably know that we are getting closer and closer to the Christmas holidays and the New Year. People during these days are on “spending mode.” My goodness if my brain ever sat down to realize that we are theoretically living in a financially unstable market. I wont get into politics and boring finance conversations, but we can all understand that people like spending money during this holiday season. It is perhaps the most commercialized holiday on the calendar. I know you are probably scratching your head wondering: how exactly do I monetize this and get people to rent limousines? Well, it’s actually pretty easy. All you need to do is put a Christmas theme to it. For example, here are some titles for limo services: “Christmas lights tours, decoration shopping, visit your family package etc.”
