"No experience needed, just a full UK drivers licence"
This is a Chauffeur/Private Hire business model, which is obviously ideal for people who love driving.

Maybe you're an ex-cab driver, bus driver, etc. Or, maybe you just love driving, then this business is for you!
We'll fully set-up your business, including training with our fully qualified Chauffeur/Private Hire expert of over 15 years in the business. Having chauffeured big name celebrities, we're sure he'll share a few stories with you.

We are always here to give you back-up and support, so you'll never feel alone, as we are just a phone call away!
Using our fantastic "Proven" referral system, we'll help you obtain regular contracts from day one. Not just a few customers, but "contracts" from local businesses that wish to use your services on a regular basis.
We even register you with local businesses that are happy to promote your business to their customers for a commission, so you only pay them when they send you business.
This will get your business off to the best start possible and as our name states; it's a "Readymade Business" for you!
"No on-going fee's or royalties...ever"
The Chauffeur market place is massive and you only need a small portion to make an excellent living doing something you enjoy! People require private hire and chauffeur driven vehicles every day, whether it's a business man/woman needing to go to the airport or maybe business meetings all day, they'll need your services.
Many business men/women don't need a full time chauffeur but do need one a few times a month, so it's much more cost effective to hire one, as and when required.
They would sooner hire a chauffeur driven car for many reasons: so they can work on the way or simply to take the stress out of parking, especially if they have a few places to go in the city where parking is virtually impossible! Most celebrities are the same, just need one here and there, or maybe a regular member of the public would rather go home in a nice vehicle from the hairdressers than a standard taxi.
"Just a handful of regular clients can give you an excellent income"
You'll be flexible enough to offer private hire to someone who just wants to go home from the shops, to taking celebrities, business men/women to meetings, gigs, or even across country.
"Whatever their requirements"
Chauffeur/Private Hire services you can offer:-
- Corporate days – can hire you for hours or days, at a time
- Airport transfers
- Race days
- Local people requiring luxury travel
- Special events/occasions
Essentially, anything that requires a nice, comfortable vehicle with a professional driver.
The average hourly rate is around £50.00 for standard everyday occasions. You can charge more for special events like weddings, late-night work and distance work to cover your expenses.
The longer they hire you for, the cheaper you should be...
Your mileage should be around 10 miles per the hour & £2.00 per extra mile.
E.g. A 10 mile round trip to the local Airport with traffic will take you up to 1 hour = £50.00. A 20 mile round trip (2 hours) = £100.00. These are standard prices across the industry.
"A normal taxi would charge similar prices for this service"
Remember: It's your business; all prices are negotiable, so you can charge your own prices.At these guide prices there is plenty of scope to move if needed.
|Job||Charge||Mileage and Extra's|
|1 Hour||£50||(approx 10 miles)|
|2 Hours||£100||(approx 20 miles)|
|3 Hours||£150||(approx 30 miles)|
|Half day (4 hours)||£190||(approx 40 miles)|
|Full day (8 hours)||£350||(approx 80 miles)|
|Extra mileage charge||£2 per mile|
|Wedding (3 hours)||£300||(including champagne)|
|Night work/weekends||15-20% extra|
So, as you can see there's plenty of money to be made. Just working a 20 hour week can earnyou over £1,000.00 @ just £50.00 per hour! Not including night work, weddings etc!
"£1,000.00 per week for just 20 hours work"
Of course you will incur costs, mainly fuel, insurance and any finance payment you might have, but remember, you are charging extra to cover any additional mileage!
Based on 30 miles to the gallon, your fuel cost per hour will be around £5.00.
So, 20 hours x £5 = £100.00 in fuel for a 20 hour week!
If you have a finance deal for your vehicle, take this into account.
Earning £900.00 per week x 4 = £3,600.00 per month. Less insurance and finance payments @£500 = £3,100.00 take home.
If you currently have a suitable vehicle or do not require finance, then the average insurance is £100.00 per month, so your take home will be higher.
The nicer and more prestigious your vehicle is the more you can charge. The figures on the previous page are based on a nice 7 series BMW, Mercedes S Class or equivalent.
There are many vehicles out there to choose from!
Your vehicle does not have to be brand new,just in very good condition, very reliable and well serviced.
We currently have drivers using 7 series BMW Li 2003 models in beautiful condition with every extra you can think of with full service history. One driver only paid £8,000 for his. So, it does not have to break the bank to operate this type of business.
