LOS ANGELES, Aug. 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HiredDriver, a new company that offers on-demand drivers to operate customers' automobiles, launched today as a transportation alternative. The concept was created to offer chauffeur-like services in the comfort of your own car. HiredDriver, the parent brand of BeMyDD (Be My Designated Driver), the nation's largest designated driver service, is designed to bring affordable and convenient driving services to a broader audience.
HiredDriver is being offered in all of BeMyDD's 76 markets throughout 31 states. The launch of HiredDriver will bring BeMyDD's business model and expertise in affordable transportation services to new markets, including medical transportation, elderly/senior assistance, dedicated personal drivers, drivers for odd jobs like transporting cars, and corporate staffing/driver outsourcing.
"BeMyDD has been building a loyal and satisfied customer base since 2010," says Arthur Simanovsky, HiredDriver president and CEO. "We listened to our customers when they said they wanted drivers for more than just a night out, so we created HiredDriver to scale our operations and bring drivers-on-demand to more people with a diverse range of transportation needs. We're taking the same quality service and expanding it to new markets nationwide."
HiredDriver offers three distinct services designed to meet any need:
- Hourly Driver ($14.00 - $19.50 per hour). Reserve a dedicated driver on-demand any time you would rather have someone else drive. A professional driver will arrive at the customer's door ready to take them wherever they need to go, no matter how many stops.
- Car Pickup ($25 pickup + mileage). If a customer has already driven somewhere, two drivers will be dispatched to their location. One will take them and their car home, and the other will follow to retrieve the driver.
- Event Plan ($45 - $53 per team, per hour). Have teams of drivers on-site during your event to take guests and their cars home, or add valet services to any function.
Like BeMyDD, HiredDriver will only refer drivers with at least ten years of driving experience who have been personally interviewed and background-checked. Customers can use the HiredDriver smartphone app, available on iOS, to quickly make reservations, check the location of their driver, request a pickup, and chat with customer service. And all HiredDriver drivers are backed by a $2 million insurance policy in addition to their own personal insurance.
Unlike BeMyDD, however, which primarily serves customers enjoying a night out, HiredDriver will serve customers with a variety of needs throughout the day. One of HiredDriver's priorities will be providing medical transportation for those with recurring or single visit doctor appointments. From physical therapy to dialysis to checkups, people no longer have to rely on family members or inconvenience friends when it comes to their health. A personal driver will arrive at the client's home at the appointed time, drive to the appointment in the client's personal vehicle, and bring the client back safely once the appointment is over.
Seniors who would prefer not to drive will also find HiredDriver's services useful for going to doctor's appointments, running errands or visiting friends and family.
"Being able to hire a driver to take you to the doctor or run errands in your own car gives you back a sense of independence," says Simanovsky. "And one of HiredDriver's many benefits is that if you find a driver you like, you can request him or her again in the future, so it's really like having your own personal driver at a discounted rate."
Another HiredDriver service is corporate staffing and driver outsourcing, which allows companies to easily find drivers for corporate vehicles.
