Mike Kirkeby began his limousine service company while caring for his elderly aunt. When she could no longer drive, she often relied on taxis to get her to and from her daily routine, which included doctor’s appointments and lunches with friends. Kirkeby began to realize that these cab drivers often left his aunt waiting for long periods of time, or picked her up in worn down vehicles with no air conditioning.
His aunt consistently discussed her unpleasant trips, which led Mike Kirkeby to begin driving his aunt himself. By doing so, he ensured that his aunt would have a comfortable and prompt ride. He would pick her up in his own Lincoln Town Car and kept the car in optimal condition. He kept the rides comfortable and cool, playing his aunt’s favorite tunes. Soon after, Kirkeby’s aunt began raving about her fantastic trips to all of her friends, who then began asking Kirkeby for rides. They paid him for his hard work and efforts, and he quickly began building up a lengthy list of clientele.
Mike Kirkeby realized that he could turn his generous services into an actual business. It was starting to become hard to juggle all his rides, since he was still maintaining his job as a customer service representative. When it was well established that the need for a car service was in high demand, he quit his job and began driving full time. With many satisfied customers, word of the company spread like wildfire. He also advertised in the local newspaper. With continued advertising and word-of-mouth, Kirkeby was able to see his business begin to flourish.

The Safety and Cleanliness of Vehicles
Professional drivers place heavy emphasis on the safety and cleanliness of their vehicles. Kirkeby’s cars regularly get fluid changes and are taken in for inspection. This ensures that they will properly operate and transport clients safely to their destination. Many other taxi services regularly have malfunctions within the vehicles, like faulty air conditioners.
Knowing the Area
Drivers spend all day navigating particular areas, so soon enough they know the ins and outs of how to get around. This means they will know which areas are jammed with traffic at certain times, enabling clients to get to their destinations more quickly and efficiently. If a client is in an unfamiliar area, drivers are able to give guidance about must-see places to help the client become more comfortable.
Interested drivers go through a rigorous hiring process. Not anyone can get behind the wheel and call him or herself a chauffeur. Interested individuals must have a license, in addition to a clean driving record. They will then go through tough training that will make them prove that they indeed have impeccable driving skills.
