It’s been quite some time since the world has functioned normally. With COVID-19 hitting globally, most governments issued a total lockdown, leading to a wide-scale recession. However, as countries and industries slowly begin to resume their operations, the limo sector is ready to get back to business.
Here are some of the factors to be considered before you take your limo business on the road.
Execute safer transits
‘Safety’ is the need of the hour; make this your top priority. Take up safety measures on all three fronts – vehicles, drivers and passengers.
When it comes to your fleet, make sure that your vehicles are fumigated regularly and all the touchpoints like handles and screens are sanitized after every ride. Coming to your chauffeurs, they are the ones on the frontline. Make wearing face masks mandatory, encourage hand sanitizers and ensure regular temperature checkups. As for the customers, make sure the riders enter the vehicles using face masks and hand sanitizers. Ensure social distancing and limit large groups of passengers.
When you showcase your commitment to safety, earning back your customers becomes that much easier.
Build a solid basement
While the market slump may be demotivating, it is the right time to revamp your limo company, set the groundwork for improvement and ensure that your business is ready when the market reopens. Start small – you can ensure that your fleet is in good shape or invest in a digital platform.
Focus on varied perspectives
As the lockdown situation persists in many regions, it’s high time for you to focus on various verticals that provide essential services. Therefore, you could make both your resources functional and earn revenue. Delivery services have proven to be a clear winner during the COVID situation. Even when the pandemic scare goes off, there could be a great opportunity for the limo owners to focus on alternative options as an additional source of income apart from their existing businesses.
There is definitely a brighter side once the COVID-19 is over. But, until then, brace for the impact, provide safer transits, and earn reputation among your customers.
