Ride-sharing services have been touted as a quick and easy way to secure transportation when you need it. However, while it may seem convenient to pull out your phone and order a driver on the spot, these platforms come with a variety of downsides. Most notably, ride-sharing services have inadequate driver vetting procedures and virtually no vehicle maintenance standards, which can put you and your family in danger – even during a quick ride.
Luckily, there is a safer, more reliable alternative: private car services from Rudy’s Executive Transportation. Below, we’re discussing three essential safety features that you won’t find when using a ride-sharing service.
Drivers for ride-sharing services use their personal vehicles, which are not subject to frequent inspections. Instead, there is a rating system in place that allows passengers to communicate the level of service they received. And while most drivers do not want a low rating, there is still no guarantee that they will maintain an adequate level of cleanliness in their vehicles.
When you schedule transportation with Rudy’s, you can rest assured that your vehicle will be spotless. We thoroughly sanitize, disinfect, and inspect each car in between trips. That way, we can provide the most sanitary car service possible. Plus, each of our vehicles is stocked with hand sanitizer for added cleanliness.
2. Thoroughly Vetted Drivers
Several ride-sharing services have been the subject of scrutiny due to their loose vetting procedures, many of which have massive gaps that allow unqualified drivers to slip through. In fact, most services only require one surface-level screening (for criminal offenses and driving incidents) and one state-level background check.
Meanwhile, at Rudy’s, we take the time to vet all of our drivers before they are hired. This includes thorough background checks, in-person interviews, recommendations, and more. Upon hiring, each of our drivers must go through extensive training to ensure they are up to date with all rules of the road and safety best practices.
3. State-of-the-Art Vehicles
As previously mentioned, ride-sharing service drivers must use their own vehicles, regardless of size, make, or condition. Even worse, there are currently no known checkpoints or requirements for vehicle safety. This can be a significant danger to passengers, especially if drivers fail to invest in necessary repairs and upgrades for their vehicles.
With Rudy’s, you won’t have to worry about the quality of the vehicle you receive for your transportation. Our fleet includes a wide variety of luxury cars and SUVs, each of which is kept in pristine condition, inside and out. Additionally, all of our vehicles include the latest safety features and receive thorough inspections before driving any customers.
