A: Absolutely! We all know that corporate events in Houston usually attract a lot of visitors or employees that aren’t familiar with the city, they’re from out of town. So, it’s a good way to get around without getting lost or worry about where they’re going.
Also, to make sure you’re on time without being concerned about getting a cab or even these rideshare companies. You don’t know if there’s a good background check on the driver, what kind of maintenance has been performed on the car, etc.
So, using a hired car service has a lot of pluses for safety and liability, also the price. You know what it’s going to be all the time because most corporations if not all have negotiated rates with Excelsior Transportation. So, it makes it easy to budget for, and cost-effective.
When you see a limo or a chauffeur-driven luxury sedan around Houston, you may assume it’s some local celebrity or a Houston Texans player. However, you might be surprised to know that celebrities aren’t the only people who use Houston transportation companies like Excelsior.
In fact, our largest client base isn’t even pro athletes or celebrities—it’s corporations such as Reliant, Shell Oil, and Ford. Even small to midsize businesses that are local to Houston use our services frequently for airport transportation. The bottom line is—we have corporate travel services suitable for businesses of any size.
Are you trying to impress potential clients, reward exceptional employees, or keep your group together at a corporate event? We have the right service for all your corporate travel needs any day of the week.
But of course, there are always a few skeptics. So, for those that aren’t exactly sure if it’s right for corporate events—this next section is for you.
The Benefits Of Houston Transportation From Excelsior
Whether it’s a long ride to Bush Intercontinental, or a trade show at the George R. Brown Convention Center—easy transportation is a must. You want to arrive on time but you also want to make a good impression. It’s hard to get your head into the right frame of mind for an event or meeting when you’re navigating traffic.
Hiring Excelsior Transportation to eliminate that stress from the equation can make all the difference. There is a multitude of reasons businesses of all sizes use our services—these are the most common.
Let’s face it, air travel is already an uncomfortable necessity we all deal with. You wait in long lines to get searched, walk through the invasive scanners, and if you’re lucky—go on your way. Then you wait and IF the plane is on time, you board into a cramped hollow tube. Your seat—almost designed to be as small and uncomfortable as possible. Let’s not even talk about waiting for a cab or one of those rideshare services when you land.
So, companies use our services to reduce what little amount of stress possible for corporate travel in two ways.
- For transportation to and from the airport at both points of their trip—departure, and arrival. This allows employees to relax, maximize idle time by working in our vehicles, and eliminate parking hassles.
- As a substitute for air travel for short-route flights like Houston to Austin, or Houston to Dallas. On these short flights, the time spent in security, plus waiting for takeoff, and getting a cab adds a couple of hours. By the time they go through that ordeal, our luxury sedan service could’ve had them at their destination in less time.
Booking Houston transportation services for clients coming to visit or employees attending a corporate function is also practical. Your clients aren’t going to be familiar with the nuances of Houston roads and freeways. They won’t know the shortcuts when the loop is a parking lot and they need to be at a function on time.
Our chauffeurs know all the alternate routes and will take on the burden of negotiating through Houston’s infamous traffic. We pick you or your clients up on time at the agreed pickup point and take them directly to their designated drop-off.
It makes for a seamless process that ensures everyone stays on schedule and there are no issues. Any time wasted in business is money wasted. So, if you can eliminate wasting money, you’re already on the right track.
Safe, Clean, And Reliable
Are you traveling to close a huge deal with a potential client? The last thing you need while en route, is to have a breakdown. Many might defer to booking one of those rideshare companies, but let’s be honest. It’s a loose network of amateur drivers using their own vehicles that aren’t guaranteed to be inspected regularly. How do you know if your rideshare driver has changed their oil, or checked their tires recently?
Our fleet of vehicles go through a multipoint safety and cleanliness check every day before heading out. For COVID protocols, we also disinfect the entire vehicle after each service call to ensure every passenger gets a fresh vehicle.
In terms of mechanical integrity, all vehicles are consistently maintained inside our on-site shop. Our fleet is made up of only late-model vehicles as well. So, you can rest assured you will have a safe ride to your destination and will arrive on time, every time.
Perception Is Reality
Corporate events may not last very long—some as little as 2 hours, some maybe go four hours. However, trade shows, conferences, and networking events are a perfect opportunity to make a good first impression. People develop their perception of your company based on this impression—so make it a good one. Show up in a luxury limo or sedan from Excelsior and let potential clients know your company is built for success. A good first impression doesn’t have to cost you very much, but a bad first impression will cost you everything.
Make Use Of Idle Time
When you fly, especially on those short routes we mentioned earlier, you don’t have any time to multitask in the air. Those flights begin their descent almost as soon as they reach cruising altitude, so laptops up, belts on. However, when you use our car service, you can get right to work with our in-car WiFi. After all, we get you from Houston to Austin or Dallas faster than traveling by air when you factor in all the airport delays. Why bother getting up at 6 am for an 8 am flight when you can be picked up and on the road working?
