Chauffeur vs. Driver

What Makes A Chauffeur, A Chauffeur?

Limousine with driverThe job of a Chauffeur is demanding. It’s a job that requires knowledge while having the ability to multi-task, respond to a customers needs, monitor traffic patterns, an understanding of the vehicle they are operating and being safe. A chauffeur is often thought of being a driver. At Hennessy Transportation, our drivers are chauffeurs. We have a screening process, a training program and a continuous process that enables them to be the best in the industry.

The True Difference

When hiring a driver, their priority is to get you to where you need to be, and off to the next trip. A chauffeur, whether it be for a transfer or hourly arrangement, is focused on their passengers comfort and safety. A chauffeur is a position that communicates with their passenger as an assistant. Furthermore, they’re focused on your comfort. For example, a chauffeur is anticipating the experience of how you feel when approaching that upcoming left turn. Or how you feel when approaching and negotiating the speed bump. Perhaps when entering a clean vehicle and being offered a chilled water is what makes you feel good. Or maybe it’s the attention to detail your chauffeur observes while driving. A chauffeur driving a vehicle for you is truly an all-inclusive riding experience. At Hennessy, we work hard in making sure your experiences are flawless.
