Car Sharing Anyone?

Since recently moving to San Diego I’ve noticed that there’s quite a large limousine world down here. There’s lots of limousine company is no matter where you drive throughout the town. It’s very different from San Francisco where everyone was using over and lift and different car service is set of using limousines. I find this is very good for local companies as many new business owners are benefiting from using their limousines throughout the city as well as party buses, town cars, and stretch SUV limousine.

Different from San Francisco, there was lots of car services. This is a different debate that is bringing a lot of attention to both the residents of a city as well as the state and local representatives. On a local level this car service or car sharing is really negatively affecting a lot of companies throughout San Francisco including limousine companies and taxi companies. These companies find it unfair that these rideshare services are taking away their business.

It’s a very interesting debate though because it’s a new innovative way of transporting people. It brings up a topic of innovation and the idea that things will not always be the same. New business as well as the opening and you will be starting different ventures to make money. It just so happens that this one is in the transportation industry. On a state and local level I feel like by banning is car service is sometimes are actually trying to stop the progression of businesses in 2015. I really do support limousine companies and taxi companies. They were the first to develop being able to get a ride without having to drive your own vehicle but like I said this is 2015 things are changing and new business or popping up. Ride sharing is a new business and it’s a very interesting way of getting around the city and it’s also a very interesting new business.

Recent drama in the limo biz

Recently i had an issue that came up with a competitor’s company. This competitor has been really nasty with other local limo companies. He often creates negative reviews on yelp, google+ and other sources under fake accounts. Most recently he has called the public utility commission and has reported my site saying it was fake. He just continued to lie and lie to the PA transportation commission that i wasn’t a real limo company and that i did not have any association with limos. It was insane that he would do something like this. I had to speak with a representative from the PUC in PA that insisted i take my site down.

I refused to take the site down until i was sent a written notification stating i must take the site down. Sure enough, the next day, he contacted me again and said after consulting his attorney, that my site indeed wasn’t illegal, i did not need any special certification and that everything i was promoting was within code. While it may have panned out in the end, it was hard to see that there were so many nasty things done just because of competition. As if the guy just couldn’t deal with any competition. It’s impossible to deal with people like this and the best thing is just to stay focused. Keep your mind on the task at hand and just roll over things like this like they are small bumps in the road to success. Keep your head up and keep rolling.

The start of my limousine blog

This will be an ongoing blog that i will try to keep up with that will really keep you in touch with the limo world.  There are many new limo sites going up, many new businesses going up and tons of vehicles being made.  From here i will try to outline what most of you want to know about keeping up with limousines.

My recent venture into limousines came when i least expected it.  I met a guy on the internet who said he had a limo company out of eugene oregon.  He only had one limo but was telling me how much money he made each month.  His friend also has a similar limo service in charleston which can be found at click here .  His limo was cool, but only one limo?  He explained to me the costs and everything and we talked about how much money could be made on one of these limos.  I’ll show a picture of his type of limo below.

We started talking and he really got me into potentially buying some vehicles.  He pointed me towards a few friends that have such limos.  He stated it’s hard competition if you try to get into a city that had things like uber and lyft.  These car services make it difficulty for many of the limo businesses to survive.  These cars, even if two are taken are much less than a limousine if used just for short term.  in larger cities, unless you are traveling from out of town it just doens’t make sense to use limos for transportation.   In addition to his limo site charleston limos, he says there aren’t many other times he wouldn’t reccomend a limo except for the sake of those big cities we talked about.  So these are the advantages and disadvantages of limos in certain cities.  In my next blog post i will talk more about the different types of limousines that we use to try to facilitate different size parties and such.
