Licensed Armed Security Officer Chauffeur

In an interview with Sid Smith on January 24, 2017, owner of All Points Limousine, I asked him why he chose to become a Licensed Armed Security officer?

In 2005 when he went to school to become a Armed Security officer he knew of no other Chauffeur in the Tampa Bay area with these credentials.  He has the highest respect for our Law Enforcement and being a home grown Floridian he knows that many VIP, celebrities and dignitaries travel to this area.

What is the Training to become an Armed Security officer?  The training is not as extensive as becoming a law enforcement officer but on a similar scale.  Training in individual areas are required.  Sid is trained not only in Firearms with the permit to open carry as well as a permit to conceal, his training includes securing an area prior to police arrival on scene if there is ever an incident.  See link below for more information:

Mr. Smith attended S2 Institute in Clearwater, Florida and has maintained his certification since receiving his original licensing in 2005.

Has Mr. Smith ever used his training in the field with a client?  His answer was “Yes”.  One evening while a client wanted to stop at an ATM a civilian aggressively approached Mr. Smith and his client.  Mr. Smith does not advertise his training, however He did show this civilian his badge and simply stated “This is not a confrontation that you would want.” The Civilian left without a quarrel or confrontation.

Having an Armed Security Officer as a chauffeur is often used for High Profile VIP clients, including Celebrities, Sports Figures, Business CEOs and other Dignitaries.  All of which Mr. Smith has chauffeured.

In a Recent article written by the Tampa Bay Times they tell about a serious issues revolving around the traffic of the David A. Straz Center especially on Performance nights.

Your hired Chauffuer will drop you at the main entrance and they will fight the traffic while you make curtain call.   Then when the show is over you can have your driver pick you up and navigate you home safely while you enjoy your favorite beverages and your family or friends all the way to your front door.

Five ways to the Airport

Have you ever wondered or even thought about what’s the best way to get to the airport?  For some people they don’t even think about it, they just use their own personal vehicle, rent a car, use a taxi/Uber or use a Limousine Service.  In this post I would like to discuss the various ways (pros and cons) and why choosing a Professional Car Service is the best option.  I used our Local service to Tampa International Airport as an example for Pricing.

  1.  Drive Your Personal Vehicle:
    • To park your car in Long term parking.
      • TPA garage parking cost $18 per day for 7 days is $126
      • Plus you have to remember where you parked your car and find your car when you are exhausted from traveling and just want to be at home.
      • You have to allow about 30-45 minutes extra time to park your car and to get to gate to check in on top of the 2 hours TSA recommends.
      • Will your car be secure while you are gone? Will it be broken into? Will it be damaged by another car?
    •  Use Valet Parking at the airport.
      • TPA Valet parking cost $30 per day for 7 days is $210 plus gratuity
      • Although you don’t have to remember where your car is, you have to wait for the valet driver to retrieve your car when you are already exhausted from traveling and just want to be at home.
      • You can drop your car off at the curb with a trusted airport Valet service and walk right into check in.
      • Will your car be secure while you are gone? Will it be broken into? Will it be damaged by another car? It’s parked in Short term parking garage and treated as such.
  2. Cab/ Taxi service:
    • Choose your service TO the Airport, but not FROM the Airport.
      • Prices vary by cab/taxi company. Average rate is $2 for initial pick up plus $2.25 per mile after
        • Example: From TPA to Tradewinds Islands Grand Beach Resort on St. Pete Beach is 30 miles and will cost approximately $70 plus tip
      • TPA only allows certain taxi services to pick up at the airport.
      • You never know who is driving and what kind of driving history they have.
      • Taxi services do not guarantee that they will be on time or that they will even show up.
      • You do not know the conditions of the vehicle that will be picking you up.
  3. Airport Super Shuttle:
    • Only $25 per person to jump on the van with multiple passengers who are also on their way to or from the airport.
      • If there are 4 people in your party, you are paying $100 per trip.
      • Not all passengers are going to the same location.
      • Multiple stops may delay your arrival to the airport or to your final destination and put you at risk for missing your flight.
      • You maybe the last stop on the route when you are already exhausted and ready to be at home.
      • Riding with strangers can be fun but also stressful.
  4. Uber:
    • Uber has become the latest craze in shared rides; they tend to have newer cars and is the closest to a Limousine service.
      • Legal approval from the PTC is still pending for Uber to be allowed at the Airport. (as of Oct. 2016)
      • Uber drivers have Drivers license, car registration and car insurance checks but no driver is required Federal back ground checks unlike all of the other car services.
      • The driver can reject your request at curb side if they don’t want to go where you want to go.
  5. Limousine Service:
    • Many people think of Limousine as the long stretch, but Limousine is a service that no other company can provide.
      • You can choose a Towncar, SUV or Stretch to pick you up.
      • Average Airport transfer from anywhere in the Tampa Bay area will cost you about $75 (gratuity is optional)
      • You know exactly how much you will pay at time of reservation. NO SURPRISE CHARGES!
      • Some one will be at your home 10-15 minutes prior to pick up time to get you to the airport on time.
      • When working with the same Limousine Service you develop a personal relationship with your driver who has had a Federal background check, is a safe driver, and protects your personal privacy.
      • Regardless of how late your plane is delayed, the driver will be there with a friendly and familiar smile to welcome you home at no extra charge.
      • You don’t have to drive or worry about getting to your destination, you can even nap or work while in the car.

You can see that there are various options available, their benefits as well as their drawbacks, but with a Limousine service you receive full service from a friendly face that’s easy and affordable.

All Points Limousine Service of Saint Petersburg Florida has been a trusted Car Service for all transfers for almost 10 years.
