Introduce your business and tell us what you’ve been up to recently?
Hi im Lee and I run a small chauffeur business called DGC Executive Travel, (DGC Stands for my stage name Dave Guitar Chappell as I play in a band ) we provide chauffeur driven cars for all occasions,such as weddings,business travel and special occasions such as birthdays,I work with a variety of clients including well known celebrities which keeps my job interesting.

What makes you different from other similar businesses in the area?
The thing that makes us different is attension to detail, when you book our service, nothing is a problem, we look after you from the minute you get into the car, our drivers are professional and courtious we also have WIFI and cold drinks on board at all times
What flexibility does being an independent business give you over a national chain / business?
in my experience a small business will always provide a better service,where possible we always use small business, the service is better and the people running it are friendler as they more than likely are the owner or a close friend of the owner so it makes sense, we are the same usually I cover most of the bookings or if we have large vehicle bookings in,I use other small chauffeur businesses and run the job as an operations manager to make sure it runs like clockwork.
Looking back, which piece of advice would you give to somebody setting up their own business today?
Do your research,offer the best service possible,Make your customers notice you it will pay off !
