A small business we have use recently that we thought deserved a plug here is Chauffeur Services Direct
They are a unique professional organization operating in the North West of England; more specifically, Stockport, Manchester and Tameside. They have over ten years of experience within the chauffeuring and personal security industries.
All the staff are SIA approved at various levels, from front line service operatives and bodyguards through their Close Protection Security arm to the drivers they use for everyday chauffer and car and driver services.
All occasions are catered for, such as weddings, race days, private parties, business transportation, and transportation of clients in and around Manchester, Stockport and Tameside. They work very closely with hotels and various private companies around the North West. Airport collection of your clients from either Manchester Airport, or Merseyside’s John Lennon Liverpool airport are also catered for.
For visiting business people to the North West from the former Soviet Union, they are also able to arrange Russian speaking translators and interpreters in addition to personal protection and chauffer services.
We used Close Protection Security to collect our three Lithuanian staff from Liverpool airport in January 2009. Their staff arranged their smooth check in to the Portland Hotel in Manchester with the aid of their Russian interpreter Olga. We used one of their protection drivers in a Jaguar car for the entire three-day trip. We found them to be reliable, efficient and very professional at all times. We would use them always in our business in England in the future.

Chauffeur Services Direct (in conjunction with the affiliated Close Protection Security) are constantly reviewing their services and gathering information at street level to ensure that they are fully aware of any political or public feeling issues that may affect any particular clients; thus ensuring clients’ personal safety at all times.
They are the first chauffeuring company in Manchester who can supply and offer you a SIA approved bodyguard (should you have the need), and remain the first operation in Manchester to supply SIA approved drivers for your peace of mind.
As a small business operating during a fiscal downturn, clients and business are important to them and that is why they offer clients a tailor-made service to suit their needs no matter what the request; flexibility is key to customer satisfaction. They feel it is important that they understand clients’ requirements and they pride themselves on being able to respond to short-notice requests for staff.
