While many new car transportation services such as Uber and Lyft are gaining more and more popularity, what people do not understand are the many disadvantages that these car transportation companies can pose. As much as it pains us to say this, although you never know what you are going to get with a taxi, at least you know you they are insured (unlike many of these new car transportation companies). Below are some of the disadvantages and hazards that taking one of these new car transportation services can cause:
It really is all too easy to become an Uber driver; Uber requires simple paperwork and voila, drivers are approved and ready to begin work. There is no proper training period or course drivers are required to take aside from a 13-minute video on how to properly use the Uber application from a smart phone. Because of this, it is impossible to know what kind of driver you may be getting when stepping into an Uber vehicle. Unlike professional limo service companies that require extensive training from their employees, Uber essentially sends their drivers out regardless of how much experience they may have.
Another major issue with Uber is car insurance. An average driver (which is usually the case for all Uber drivers) has a personal car insurance policy, not a commercial one. A personal policy will not protect a driver when they are using their automobile for commercial purposes such as working as an Uber driver. When choosing to work with a professional limo service such as Infinity Limo Transportation, you can be assured that all of our cars and drivers are properly insured.
