Never underestimate the value of experience when it comes to transportation services. June 4, 2017 (Washington, DC) –  It’s not always easy to find a quality and reliable DC airport car service. For most people, going online and doing a simple search in Google, for example, may be the most common way to begin looking for these types of transportation services. That usually puts people in view of numerous companies. A simple search for a ‘Town Car service in DC’ will likely produce hundreds upon hundreds of results. That doesn’t mean it’s a quality company, though. For those looking for the best DC sedan car service to take them to or from the airport or for any other special event in their life, they should consider Nationwide Chauffeured Services.

Riders Beware! Skeevy Unlicensed Cars Posing as DC Sedan Services

Riders Beware! Skeevy Unlicensed Cars Posing as DC Sedan Services

Sara hired a reliable DC Sedan Car Service for her business trip. I was Sara’s chauffeur (and no, that’s not her real name). She was one of those always-in-a-hurry-but-never-impolite types. So she wanted a fast, reliable DC sedan service, with a driver who knew the city’s weird streets, and what to do about detours and traffic and other annoying things—the kind of sedan service she could “set and forget.” Sara even gave me her itinerary the first time I drove her. I just love that. The lady was organized. One morning, I was waiting in my black sedan to pick her up outside the swanky DC hotel she was staying in.She had a breakfast meeting with her boss and some clients, and I had a coffee waiting for her (it was a service she requested). I noticed she was running a little late, and made a few mental adjustments to our route so that she’d still get to her meeting fifteen minutes early, like she wanted. Then I saw her running out of the hotel, and I got out of the black car to greet her, coffee in hand. But she didn’t see me. She approached another black sedan—one parked and waiting several cars in front of mine—and even though I was standing and I waved my arm and went “Yoo hoo!’ and called her name, she didn’t see me. Then she got in that other sedan! We all have those days. At least her hair looked fabulous. I ran toward the client-usurping sedan, but it sped off into the wilds of DC. I had a moment to think,...
The Top 5 Hotels in DC According to a DC Limo Driver

The Top 5 Hotels in DC According to a DC Limo Driver

Coming to visit DC? Great! You’re gonna love it! You need a reliable DC car service? Great! I’m your man. Parking is a hassle in DC anyway, so enlisting a car service is a good way to go. Just hop right in my limo and tell me which DC hotel you’re staying at. . . . What do you mean, “You don’t know”? Okay, there are a lot of hotels in DC—having a lot of choices is the American way, right? But it can make decisions difficult. My limo clients stay in hotels all over DC. I don’t mean to brag (this time), but I know my hotels. So without further ado . . . A DC car service driver’s top five hotels in the city. These are great for business trips, trips with friends, and weekend getaways. 1. Four Seasons If you’re looking to impress someone, stay at the Four Seasons. It’s the most expensive hotel in DC. That combined with the sleek limo you’ll no doubt be riding around in should make an impression on even the most reluctant clients. The Four Seasons is elegant, but not ostentatious. You’re not going to find mermaids swimming in in-wall fish tanks or anything. It’s understated elegance, with spacious rooms. They also go out of their way with service, so if you’re hosting a business function here, everything should run smoothly. It’s also in a great location in Georgetown, close to DC sights and shops. 2. Carlyle Suites I’m following up the most expensive hotel in DC with one of the most affordable (without venturing into franchise-chain territory). The Carlyle...
How To Get Through Security Easily in DC Airports

How To Get Through Security Easily in DC Airports

A lot of my clients ask for tips about how to get through security easily. I am, after all, a savvy DC car service chauffeur, and I know a thing or two about getting around. It’s not exactly a breeze to get through security at DC airports. Even when everything goes as planned, moving smoothly as an assembly line at a butter factory, it’s annoying to have to take things out of bags and take off articles of clothing. But that doesn’t mean it has to be a hassle to get through security. How To Get Through Security Easily: Top Tips from a Tip-Top DC Airport Car Service Driver Dress for success I’m guessing you would like to get through security without taking off too many of your clothes. So before your DC car service drops you at the airport, put on shoes that are easy to slip in and out of. If you don’t have to wear a belt, don’t. Likewise for clothing that has a lot of metal on it, like cargo pants covered in zippers, or scarves woven with metallic threads. If you can get away without wearing a coat or jacket, pack that in your bag. (If it’s cold outside, just ask your friendly DC car service driver to crank up the heat, then dash from the car to the terminal like a rabbit.) How to pack You know the rule about liquids and gels: 3 oz or less per container, and it all has to fit in a 1-quart plastic zip bag. But we’re going beyond the bag, to get through security even faster....
My Friend Trent’s Failed DC Car Service

My Friend Trent’s Failed DC Car Service

Running a quality DC car service takes professionalism, legal compliance, and style. Trent had none of those things. Here’s his story. Some time back (April), I had dinner in DC with my friend Trent. Trent’s a good guy but he’s got a few screws loose. We talked about our jobs. Well, I talked about driving for a DC car service. Trent didn’t have a job at the time. (Guess who paid for dinner?) Trent seemed jealous—not only that I was gainfully employed, but at the nature of my employment. I don’t blame him one bit. My job is fan-freaking-tastic. I should’ve paid closer attention to the nature of Trent’s interest in driving for a DC car service. If I had known what he was about to do, I could’ve saved him from the atrocious transportation sins he was about to inflict upon DC, but alas, they could not be prevented. After our dinner, Trent and I didn’t see each other for awhile. I was busy providing my superb driving skills to the elite of DC, while it seems Trent’s time was spent starting a less-than-stellar DC car service. Here is the email Trent sent me yesterday (and my reactions to said email). Hey Patrick, Long time no see, bud! I hope the good people of DC are treating you well. Since our last night out, a lot has been going on with me. Your job sounded so awesome, I figured I’d try it myself. But I’m a self-starter, you know? I just can’t work for the man. So I started my own DC car service! YOLO right?! At this point...
