It is strange to think about the fact that there are services that exist, which you personally my only use once or twice during your life. After all, if you are an average person and you wouldn’t use such a service regularly, why would other people do it? How would such a service survive if there is no one to fund it? Public transport in some countries primarily depends on subsidies from the government (especially if we are talking about train transport), which comes from taxes of course. But private companies cannot depend on the crutch of the government, so there has to be something else that plays a part in it.
Well, the fact is that even if average people don’t regularly use a service, some people may do it regularly or the usage may spike during seasons, events and so on. So let us talk about the Chicago limousine service for a little bit. It largely depends on acting as a taxi service at airports. But it actually proves to be quite more useful than that.
Weddings happen regularly and often people want the best ride to take them around town, to their hotel, maybe to the airport even. On such a special day, when you want everything to be special, you are surely not skipping the vehicle you are going to be driven in. So there’s a regular clientele for chauffeured services. Some people like to even take it a bit further so they will get professional transport for their closest relatives and friends as well. It is not a rare occurrence to see two or even three limousines at a wedding, provided it is big enough.
Same thing applies to proms. This is an event that also calls for a nice vehicle and often chauffeured once are the way to go. Sure, proms are not everyday events, but they are seasonal ones and do provide a nice boost to the limousine service. After all, teenage girls tend to have the desire to be as fancy as possible and if you say that they are responsible for a nice chunk of limo companies’ revenue, you wouldn’t be crazy.
And corporate clients also use the service quite regularly. When you arrive at the airport, you need to find yourself a ride, but if you need to be presentable, you won’t hop in the closes taxi your eyes can see. No, you will prefer a nice sedan, maybe an SUV, but surely something that will make you look classy. It is just how people think, basic human psychology.
And then there are the occasional group of guys, who like to book a limousine and go around town, maybe to a bar, a strip club, and why not a whole series of places they want to visit. It does happen quite often, even if you don’t think average people use this service.
So now you know that there is actually a need for chauffeured services, which means that there is probably explanation for other “not-your-average” services, which do quite well to stay on the market.
