Club Class Chauffeurs wins prestigious Silver QSi award in the UK’s only national awards for the private hire, taxi and chauffeur sector
Hailsham-based company takes Silver in the Chauffeur Operator of the Year (31+ vehicles) category
Club Class Chauffeurs has won the Silver Award in the Chauffeur Operator of the Year (31+ vehicles) category of the prestigious Professional Driver QSi Awards.
Professional Driver Editor Mark Bursa said: “All three of our medalists are past Gold QSi Award winners, which highlights the stellar standard on display here. Silver goes to Club Class Chauffeurs, of the most innovative and dynamic businesses in the sector and last year’s Gold winner in this category. Club Class continues to impress with a 12% increase in annual turnover and a 50% reduction on CO2 emissions.”
“The company has expanded its regional hubs, added clients and fully employs all its drivers. It offers exemplary staff training – which is reflected in 100% client retention levels and 99% customer satisfaction levels.”
Professional Driver magazine’s QSi Awards ceremony was a night to remember for the cream of Britain’s chauffeur and private hire operators. The awards, open to every chauffeur and private hire company in the UK, are designed to recognise operators and individuals that demonstrate excellent standards of Quality, Service and Innovation.
Gold, Silver and Bronze awards were presented in 10 categories at a thrilling event, held at the Effingham Park Hotel, near Gatwick Airport.
The 10 categories mean there’s something for every size and type of operator, from one-man bands to large fleets. Categories also reward innovations in marketing, environmental performance and local community activities, while a special award – Professional Driver of the Year – singles out a chauffeur or private hire driver who is judged to be the best in the UK.
Mark Bursa said: “The chauffeur and private hire industry has weathered the worst of the economy over the past few years, while making giant leaps forward in quality and professionalism. Our QSi Awards are designed to reward that excellence, and bring the industry together for a night in a celebration of all that’s good about this business.”
Mark Bursa continued: “We were overwhelmed by the quality of the entries, and it was a very tough job to pick our winners. Only very good operators made the short list, so we can be sure our Gold, Silver and Bronze winners are among the very best operators in Britain.”
