This morning, you awoke, got ready for work and walked out the front door to find your driver next to an executive car, waiting to start your commute to work. In the car is the morning paper, coffee brewed just the way you like it and your favorite breakfast treat. You settle yourself in, read the paper and go over your morning presentation. Before you know it, you’re at the front door of your office building, arriving to work in the perfect frame of mind – relaxed, confident and ready to take on the world.
Sound like a dream? It doesn’t have to be. Living a limo lifestyle is easy and something available to anyone.
There’s no doubt Austin traffic has gotten worse and worse, especially in the last 10 years. The commute in Austin has ranked as one of the worst in the country every year for the last few years and it doesn’t look like it’s going to get any better any time soon. Losing time during your commute is one thing; you can’t get that back. But looking at it in dollars and cents brings the problem into stark relief.
How long does it take you to get to work in the morning and home again at night? Thirty minutes each way? An hour? And if there’s an accident along the way, you’re looking at as much as two hours. What do you earn per hour? Multiply that times 10 (the number of commutes each week) and just in time alone, that’s what your commute costs each week. Now double that, if there are two of you trying to get to work each morning.
Now, look at the cost of your car. The average Austinite spends $345 a month on fuel(1) – that’s $4,140 a year just for gasoline. Add to that your monthly payment, maintenance, insurance and incidentals and you’re looking at an additional average of $509 a month. Your monthly cost just for the car is now up to almost $1,000! That doesn’t include the frustration of the drive itself.
By contrast, using an executive car service can be an actual cost savings. Using an executive car service allows you to get work done on the commute. Someone else is behind the wheel. You can take meetings, draft and review reports, research an important paper, all from the comfort of a luxury car with a professional driver at the wheel. Better yet, you can read the paper, watch interviews from the late-night talk shows or catch up on your reading. You arrive at the office feeling fresh and ready to get to work.
Is the expense of using a car service every day still frightening? That’s understandable. Try it on a day when you have an important meeting or presentation. Have guests in town? Reserve an executive car service or limousine and enjoy their company, instead of worrying about directions and traffic. The more you use the service, the more you’ll realize you can live the limo lifestyle. Better yet – you deserve it.
