Looking for a Private Family Driver

Postby JOB » Wed Sep 12, 2018 4:05 pm

Looking for an experienced driver for a family in central London for airports runs and various trips within London such as meetings, concerts etc. Driver needs to have its own car, be flexible as some weeks you may be required 1 hour and others 10 hours and have good knowledge of London roads.
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

So you're effectively offering a zero-hour contract?

Uber?
Uber is essentially what you describe, own car and come when it want.
Or Black cab, street car, trains.. come to mind
Are you offering a job for someone to stand outside your house in case you maybe want them or full time employment?

...or Addison Lee offer a superb service for this with trusted drivers.

Are you a job agency?

The trouble is that you require a driver who supplies their own car and maintains it and is working for hire and reward therefore must be licensed to TFL and more importantly insured to carry fee paying passengers,

Also they are required to turn up ad-hoc for anywhere from 1 to 10 hours of employment day or night.

As an example licensed chauffeur companies charge a minimum of £400 a day for this service but that is only for the hours of 9am to 5pm...costs increase after 5pm and increase again after midnight (admittedly yo get a Mercedes as your chauffeured car).

If you want to keep within the law I suggest a cheaper taxi firm.
