Local residents and businesses considering a car service for any number of reasons – a night on the town, a trip to the airport, a commute to work – now have a cost-effective new option available to them. R. Lucas Drivers will take you anywhere you want - in the comfort and convenience of your own car.
“Why pay for the driver AND the car when you already own the car?” asks Chris Candee, co-owner of the year-old, fully insured local business that serves clients throughout Fairfield County, CT, Westchester County, NY and Monmouth County, NJ.
Mr. Candee, 42, started this business after a cancer diagnosis and the resulting treatment forced him to leave the physically demanding restaurant business. “I like the fact that I am helping to keep people safe on the roads,” he said, adding that response has been overwhelmingly positive, as exemplified by the new referrals that come in daily from existing clients.
“Manhattan is a popular destination. People hire us to go to restaurants, sporting events, concerts, theater, parties, you name it. On request, we will even create packages that include the tickets to an event along with the driver for the evening. Having a personal driver in NYC provides many benefits too, such as not paying for parking and door to door service. The driver stays with the car, always ready for the next destination on a moment’s notice.”
Whether going to the city, a casino, or out locally, Mr. Candee frequently gets requests to chauffeur two or even three couples in their SUV, which instantly creates a lively atmosphere and saves them money. “No designated driver needed. Everyone gets to have a good time and arrive home safely. The $35 hourly rate is the same no matter how many passengers there are, and the gratuity is always included.”
Leisure trips aside, Mr. Candee gets requests for many other reasons. “Doctor’s appointments are popular, and we’ve also driven people who have a suspended driver’s license. Then of course there’s the dreaded commute to the city for work. We offer something akin to a carpool, but with a private driver. The opportunity to avoid crowded trains and subways and be driven door to door is a luxury, but an affordable one if shared among 2 or 3 people. And for many, time is money, so getting that extra work done in the quiet comfort of the car is invaluable.”
Not surprisingly, the other popular request is airport transportation. “Families love the savings and convenience, especially those utilizing car or booster seats. And businesses love our rates, as hiring an R. Lucas driver saves them 30-35% on average. That really adds up quickly for businesses that use car services often.”
