Alliance Insurance Selects WeDriveU

"We were looking for a cost-effective and efficient way to get out and network with clients and business partners and WeDriveU was the perfect solution to make our business more mobile -- I highly recommend their services," said Bill Mickey, Jr., Vice President with Alliance Insurance, a leading provider of commercial property and auto insurance in Southern Florida. "Having a chauffeur drive me to my presentations at local events allows me to prepare on the way. I was also pleased with using a WeDriveU chauffeur to take clients to a concert in our company's Cadillac Escalade. Our driver was fabulous -- she knew the area inside and out. She picked up each client at their home, and we punched numbers on the way to the concert while she focused on driving. She was extremely attentive; it was like having a personal assistant and it made for a perfect evening."
