    A service with a long tradition

    The chauffeur service has a long tradition. The origins of the profession of the chauffeur go back to the times when there were no automobiles, when horses and carriages were used to transport the affluent around in style. When automobiles were invented in the 19th century, the chauffer service then moved on to that form of transport. The term "chauffeur" comes from the French term for “stoker” because the earliest automobiles, like their railroad and sea vessel counterparts, were steam-powered and required the driver to stoke the engine. These days, a chauffeur is an experienced driver working for a company that offers individuals or groups a professional transfer service.

    Mit der Erfindung des PKWs im 19. Jahrhundert traten die Chauffeure schließlich die Nachfolge des Kutschers an. Etymologisch ist das Wort Chauffeur übrigens aus dem französischen Wort für Heizer bzw. für warm machen oder heizen entlehnt, da man auch den Lokführer als Chauffeur bezeichnete, weil dieser auch als Mechaniker und Heizer in den Zügen fungierte. Heute versteht man unter einem Chauffeur im engeren Sinne einen Fahrer, der im Auftrag eines Unternehmens, einer Einzelperson oder einer Dienststelle handelt und der für den individuellen Fahrservice einer bzw. mehrerer Personen zuständig ist.

    Stylish service for various occasions

    In the past, chauffeured services were reserved for the elite and upper classes, and, even today, they are used for very special occasions when style and luxury are of utmost importance. Major events, gala nights, or an exclusive ride around town, are all perfect occasions to hire a limousine with chauffeur. These days, chauffeured services are not just reserved for the rich and famous and have become very popular for weddings and family celebrations.
