Spotted: Mr.S63 and his business

Well this is interesting, I was scrolling my Facebook newsfeed and saw this suggested post. Price dropped to $200 and it includes a chauffeur!

Huh?

Is this supposed to be some sort of uber type service?

EDIT: Just looked it up, there is no information anywhere on how the service works. Like how many times can I use it, how far will it take me, can I call 24 hours a day? etc.

What does my $200 get me over the course of the month?

$200 a month is cheaper than a rental and someone else drives you around. Not bad. I cant even fuel my car for $200 a month.

I'm guessing the $200 is some type of monthly fee and you're either billed on top by the hour or per km

For someone who posted 110 times in 2 days, he should come in here and explain himself.

He's not banned...

Also I bookmarked the link to the complaint board involving his 'other business' that's currently under review

We provide a complete chauffeur service with different set of packages, going by the hour. The service includes a professional driver, snacks on board, and other services. $200 would purchase 2 hours of chauffeur time. We're adding more fleet to our business, this includes a Rolls Royce, Bentley, and other high end cars. Our website should be going live within a day or two, which shall contain more info. Let us know if you have any questions.
Quote:
So essentially - after depositing for 2 hours - you have upto a month to use that. The funds are only deducted after a confirmed booking, till then they're 100% refundable and is treated as a deposit.

The $200 would allow you to have 2 hours of chauffeur time within a given month. Since we have quite a lot of demand, and would want to ensure everyone fits within a month, you have upto a month to choose which specific day you'd like to use your 2-hour package for. Also, the $200 is a refundable deposit, and it's only deducted upon a confirmed booking.

Unlike a limo service, our service is more cost effective, and only focusing on high-end cars. Our members also get various benefits including air miles, discounts for dinners at exotic restaurants, air miles, and much more.
And apparently he/she cannot disclose the website because it's a "company policy OUR BOSSES have set"

Air Miles...

Tbh, I think the price is pretty fair compared to other limo services (150~/hour) and can see this working for clubbers trying to show off as well as elite clientèle. Doing the math..assuming OP gets 8 hours booked up per day @ 200 it means he would make 800/day. Its not too bad considering hes probably going to pay the chauffer like 100 + whatever tips he gets. Better than having his car sit there earning 0 dollars

Do you expect one client to pay $800 or 4 clients to pay $200 each?


Also I don't think you will find a driver with the appropriate license for $100 a day.

says it's $100/month now.

this business model sucks. there will be peak demand that can't be serviced. how will clients feel about paying $100/month minimum and never being able to use the service unless they book WAY in advance.

you need a network of contractors with high end cars that are willing to be available at all the peak times.

i also doubt Mr.S63 has even considered the legal contracts and insurance needs - this business needs a LOT more than a fancy car. in fact, the car is the easiest part of this business

kids with no business acumen but with parental funding = vancouver's "business" scene

Hope is is licenced and properly insured to charge and carry passengers like a taxi or chauffeur. And of course the tax man will want a piece.

200 ea per client so in my example he would be serving, say 4 clients at the max hours per day. Shouldve clarified in my post. But yeah...price is going to be too cheap to make money if you factor in insurance/licensing/etc

Why did they include a picture of the steering wheel+dash and like four pictures of the car's exterior but not a single picture of the back seats of the vehicle that is advertised to be used for this "chauffeur" service?
