Travelling in taxis:
For a long time, I was using a rented taxi for all the intra-city and out of city tours. You see, I am a assessor and work can take me faraway places. Hiring a rented taxi was the most common sense thing to do back then because it didn’t give me the botheration of being up and awake which I would have to be in case I took to the wheel. Another thing was that work made me stay up late in to the nights and be up earlier than the sun, so while I rode pillion, I could catch up on some lost sleep en route to see the clients!
No need to worry about routes:
Another thing that kept me hiring a taxi everyday to work was that I did not have to worry about new routes and newer places that work travel warranted. I could sit back, relax, may be listening to soft music and catch a wink while the driver handled the rest.
Sometimes, I had a lot of reading to do before I was prepared for a meeting with the clients and the time spent in the back seat of the taxi sorting out the paperwork and making up my mind as to what the agenda of the meeting could be.
But with time, this changed:
With a lot of years in the practice, it became imminent for me to hire a van. It left an impression on the clients when I rode in a swanky car. Also, with the consultancy doing really well, I had employees working under me to take care of all the paperwork and making the agenda statements for the meetings. It did somehow make sense to van contract hire Aberdeen because that is where my practice concentrated big time.
