Don’t Let Christmas Parties Result in Drink Driving

The festive season is in full swing and Christmas parties will soon be New Year celebrations. The downside to this time of year is that drink drivers are on the rise and putting dangers back on Lincolnshire roads. Already this year, headlines have been peppered with stories of local residents and visitors being charged with drink driving offences.

The law is to the letter when it comes to drink driving, even when it comes to drivers returning the next morning who may still be feeling the effects of the night before. A minimum of a 12 month driving ban and penalty of up to £500 can be expected by those over the limit, let alone the risk bystanders and other drivers are put under by the presence of drunk drivers on the road. Employment and general quality of life can dramatically decrease after this, so think about it. Is it really worth the risk?

The cost of alternative transport may seem high, but in comparison to putting yourself, other drivers and pedestrians at risk after one too many tipples at the table, it soon becomes the preferable option. Professional driving companies, such as Style-Arrival, enforce strict alcohol and drug policies, and frequently retrain their drivers in areas such as defensive driving, which helps to prevent accident and injury should an undesirable situation occur.

If you are going out to a works do, or visiting family and friends, over the festive period then please do consider using alternative transport options instead of taking the risk. Most of all enjoy the time with friends and family over this time of year.  Check out our article on Lincolnshire Today for more information.

Merry Christmas from the whole team!

The Big Move!

Some of you may have noticed some of Style-Arrival starting to appear on Lincoln High Street over the past couple of days! Prepare to see a whole lot more appearing  over the next few days too! That’s right, Style-Arrival are moving!

This is not only a peak time for us in terms of service, but by next week we shall be cosily re-homed in our shiny new shop front! This new location means that you’ll be able to come meet us for a face to face chat about all of our services. Never fear, normal service will not be affected during this exciting transition!

We are holding a very special Grand Opening on 30th November and we’d love it if you could come! Doors will be open between 10am and 4pm, with drinks and nibbles for all of our guests! There will be exclusive opportunities on the day for discounts and other special offers. It’s also the perfect opportunity to meet the staff, some of the drivers and maybe view some of our executive vehicles. You definitely don’t want to miss this! RSVP to info@style-arrival.co.uk if you are able to make it! Get in touch today!

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Will Lincoln Monopoly be in your Christmas stocking this year?

The classic game with a local twist is on the tip of most people’s tongues as Monopoly has decided on a Lincoln Edition! With Old Kent Road having been revealed as Lincoln YMCA, the other locations are being held secret until the board is released, which is expected to be next month. We can only wait to see if one of the player pieces is a Style-Arrival vehicle!

As much as we love a game of chance it’s not something you’ll find when booking with us! All of our vehicles arrive to collect you sparkling after an immaculate valet, and in plenty of time to get you on your way to your destination. All of our drivers come smartly presented, with years of experience and an enhanced CRB check, and that’s just as standard! High quality, reliability and top notch customer service are just a few of the reasons you should book with us. See what our customers have to say on our FreeIndex profile or at www.style-arrival.co.uk

We like to think of ourselves as a Mayfair service at a Bow Street price! Our team are on hand to monitor traffic and flight details to make sure we provide the best journey possible for you!  Contact our dedicated to team today to see just what we can do for you!

(Please note: we do not accept Monopoly money, Lincoln or otherwise, in exchange for transport. Erm, sorry about that…)

Hirebikes come to Lincoln City!

Those local to Lincoln may have noticed the bike points springing up at various points across the city over the past month. These are now loaded with bikes and ready to go! In order to use the bikes, you need to become a member and then pay per hire. The prices of the bikes are highly competitive to those of London bike hire when it comes to longer journeys, capping at just £4 for a full day, whereas London prices can be as high as £50! Here at Style-Arrival, our philosophy is to provide London quality of service across Lincolnshire at reasonable prices!

Our quality extends across all of our services, from taxis right through to full executive service and even wedding transport! We are also conscious of trying to say green, so we have a range of vehicles of various sizes from 4 to 12 seaters. Meaning we will never suggest a vehicle that goes beyond your needs, yet bigger parties can save money with one larger vehicle instead of multiple vehicles, where extra drivers and fuel costs would be a higher cost to you. So if you’re looking for something to take you further afield than a bike can, or your group is too big to fit on a pushbike, let us provide your transport to ensure a stress free, enjoyable journey.

The bank holiday may be over but the summer is still hanging on and that means our Summer Sale is continuing! Who knows when it will end so get your enquiries in now to make sure you don’t miss out! Contact our team today to see what we can arrange for you. Our Opportunity Knocks newsletter is also heading out again this week, with a range of upcoming events in your area! Remember to get access to this monthly newsletter you need to subscribe, it’s as easy as sending an email to info@style-arrival.co.uk! So go on, who knows what we’ll find for you…

He is currently looking for sponsors, remember every little helps, so if you’re feeling generous then give us a call today on 01522 821 632 to arrange a donation!

The ride starts at 10am and there will be food and drinks provided, with all proceeds going to the Stainthorp family and their chosen charities.

On behalf of myself and the rest of the Style-Arrival team, good luck to everyone taking part!

International Airport Transfer to Heathrow

Last weekend saw the arrival of a lovely lady from across the pond that has chosen us for her airport transfer, from Heathrow to Lincolnshire and back again. We’re glad that the weather has been this enjoyable for her visit.

It isn’t very common that we get requests from outside the country for our services, but nevertheless we had the booking finalised within a matter of days. The lady in question received the same levels of services from us via email as local customers get over the phone, and she was still offered our full range of services.

If you’re looking to book an escape from the slightly dreary British summer we’re currently expecting then consider us for your airport transfer. From regular taxis to full blown executive travel, you will always get great quality and service with Style-Arrival! If the sun decides it does want to make a stop over these Isles and you fancy a break in Britain then we can also help with your transport to your chosen destination, or even rail transfer.

We can do something for everyone, so enquire today to start making that sunshine a reality!

The Show Must Go On!

Today saw the start of The Lincolnshire Show 2013. Next comes July, starting with The RAF Waddington International Airshow (6th-7th) and rounding the month off with The Heckington Show (27th-28th). That’s a lot of shows in a short space of time! Which also means a lot of traffic, so be aware that there may be severe delays on the local roads over these dates! Be sure to follow our social media pages where we will keep you updated!

Now don’t get me wrong, here at Style-Arrival we love a good show, but it’s not something we practice. We don’t believe in scripts, rehearsed lines or repeated phrases. We prefer to really get to know our customers; to treat you as individuals and specifically tailor our services to fulfil your needs!  We don’t see you as just another faceless number; to us you are an individual person, with unique requirements who has chosen us to help with your transport, and that means a lot to us. We want to go beyond your expectations and raise them for the future!

No job is too big or small so, from that once-in-a-lifetime wedding to a transfer to the train station, let us take the stress away. The difference you will find with Style-Arrival is that we never compromise on our unbeatable levels, or quality, of service, no matter what the occasion! So whether you’re going on holiday, for a day out or even to a show, then enquire with us to see what we can do for you today!

Empty Legs

In many cases a one way journey returns to base without passengers- this is known as dead mileage.  The empty legs scheme is a way of utilising this dead mileage. This concept is not entirely new, it has been used across the Airline Industry, offering incentives to frequent flyers such as reduced fares or free upgrades.  Style-Arrival believes this scheme should be introduced to all areas of the transport industry. We hope this will be invaluable to both businesses making many corporate journeys, as well as individuals looking to save money.

What does this mean for you?

Whether you are looking for a one off journey, or a business who books hundreds of trips a year, our Empty Legs scheme could be of benefit.  You could save up to 50% off the typical journey price.  Whether it’s for a corporate journey, airport journey or any other transport need you might have.

Search our twitter feed or offers page and when you see an Empty Leg you would like to take advantage of simply contact us. If you have your eye on one of our empty legs, but it differs slightly from the transport you need, contact us. Small adjustments usually incur no additional charge.

 

Executive Transport From Lincoln to London

Earlier this month we were asked to take 9 young girls down to London on behalf of the YMCA. These girls had been given the opportunity to meet with local MPs and to have a private tour around the Houses of Parliament.  Always willing to help the local community we happily agreed to be involved.

Our Luxury Mini Coach was washed and polished, our hampers were stocked and a supply of newspapers was bought- the same process we go through when preparing for all our journeys.  We arrived at the departure zone with plenty of time to spare.

The journey to London ran smoothly, the girls were entertained with our onboard Wi-Fi and twin screened DVD player. The hamper contained plenty of healthy snacks and refreshments to keep everyone’s energy levels up for the day ahead of them and there was a supply of tea and coffee flowing from our onboard facilities.

Once we had arrived at the Houses of Parliament we arranged a pick up location for their return and gave them a direct line to the driver, so that should their day finish earlier than expected, or if the tour took longer, we could arrange their return time for their convenience.

The return journey began around 16:30- Rush Hour! But this wasn’t a problem. Our office team keep track of traffic situations for all our jobs and were able to notify the driver if any issues arose. Mid return the nightmare of flat phone batteries became a reality, but not to worry, we carry a range of in-vehicle phone chargers which plug in conveniently near the passenger’s seats.

All in all the girls had a fantastic experience, and we were delighted to have been part of it. We look forward to working with the YMCA and charities across Lincolnshire in the future.

If you have an event or transport requirements for large parties, then please think of Style-Arrival Ltd and our Luxury Mini Coach. It is perfect for all occasions.
