When you sit and think about it, there are a lot of costs incurred during your everyday travels for work.
The whole point of working is to earn and save money, but sometimes, you have to spend money to make money.
You don’t need to drain your wallet with unnecessary expenses associated with your work transportation though.
There are other options for the working man or woman in regards to getting from place to place.
One of the most cost and time effective options is a corporate car service. While you may not immediately think of a corporate car service when trying to save money, we’ve put together a few reasons that should hopefully change your mind.
No Costly Repairs or Maintenance
When you consider the cost of a daily car service, it may seem a little excessive.
Replacing an engine or transmission, however, could cost you thousands of dollars.
Then you have to consider the cost of maintenance on your daily vehicle. If you live any substantial distance away from your job, the need for this maintenance will increase over time.
When you use a car service, you don’t have to worry about those costs.
You are no longer responsible for any necessary repairs or upkeep on the vehicles you’ll be riding in every day. That alone should take a huge weight off of your shoulders and keep a few extra bucks in your pocket.
Time to Focus on Work
When you’re driving yourself to work, you’re not able to add finishing touches or last minute tweaks to projects for work.
In some cases, you may actually have to leave home early and stay at work late to get it done. That’s taking time away from your family and personal life.
When you have a chauffeured car service driving you to work, you can actually focus on your work along the way. This way you can keep the time with your family without sacrificing it for work.
Save on Gas
Although the current gas prices are lower than they’ve been in years, we all know that it won’t stay this way.
Back in January the national average for gas prices was just $1.99 a gallon, but they’ve already started going back up in the first half of the year.
While the most optimistic people predict that gas prices will stay under $3.00 a gallon for 2016, there is no guarantee of this.
When you drive yourself to work, that fluctuating cost is something that you have to work into your budget. When you use a car service, it’s a set price and you don’t have to worry about filling up the car when you’re done with it.
No More Rentals
One of the most frustrating aspects of out of town travel is renting a car.
You have to worry about the added cost of insurance, mileage fees, and repairs should anything happen while you’re away.
When driving yourself in an unfamiliar city, you’re more likely to get lost even if you have a GPS.
That time you spend driving around trying to find your hotel or the location of your meeting or conference could be better spent. When you know you’re going to be out of town for work, reserve a car service while you’re there.
The knowledgeable drivers can make sure you never get lost will always arrive on time for whatever work activities you have on the agenda.
These are just a few of the great ways using a corporate car service can save you time and money. If you don’t believe us, give it a try and you’ll realize just how much you’ve been missing out.
