What is a chauffeur?
A professional chauffeur is responsible for transporting clients from one place to another usually with a pre-determined schedule and working exclusively for a specific client in a short period of time. Chauffeurs go through a special training in driving, it isn’t all about being aware of traffic roads and regulations as they are also trained to proper client decorum along with behavior so that you can expect your chauffeur to be unobtrusive and discreet but capable of performing their job to your pleasure.
Below is a list of qualities a good chauffeur should have:
Time is money. Professional chauffeurs are trained to make your service their top priority, which means, arriving to pick you up in a very timely manner. A punctual driver will show up as early as possible so you never have to worry about waiting around for a ride.
2 Communication skills
Chauffeurs must be good at reading people and in ensuring that it is always the passenger who starts the conversation. An excellent chauffeur knows when to engage in a conversation and when to be quiet and let their passengers’ ride in peace. Moreover, it is also essential for chauffeurs to have English communication skills so that they can communicate in the language of the client they are serving to ensure excellent customer service.
3 City expertise
Chauffeurs must be destination experts. Of course, nobody wants to get in a car with a driver who doesn’t exactly know where they’re going and what would be the best route to reach the destination as early as possible. This is why chauffeurs should have intimate knowledge of the area they are driving in.
4 A polite, calm, and courteous disposition
An excellent chauffeur should remain their composure even with tough clients. Their ability behind the wheel isn’t just what matters, they should also know how to deal and communicate with their clients while showing politeness, professionalism and a certain degree of charm and people skills.
5 Professional appearance
A professional chauffeur must be properly attired while performing their duties. No one wants to be associated with untidy drivers while heading to a business place or social event where people are in their best dress.
Discretion is paramount. An excellent chauffeur practices discretion, decorum and keeps all actions and conversations confidential at all times.
