Why we do it
Back in 2006 founder Ari Warshawsky saw a gap in the service industry. Much of the service and support industry had either become commoditized or had hefty price tags for real quality. Knowing that the intent of the person providing service was the key to exceeding the expectations of clients and so many businesses had either cheapened the service experience or priced most people out of receiving the quality they truly wished for, Ari set out to redefine the idea of service and support.
Ari believed that if we could create a platform of personalization and accessible luxury, we would support the client and the greater community at large. We accomplish this by staffing our team with personable and thoughtful members, allowing flexible engagement and setting standards of support that enrich each client experience.

Is GS a Car Service?
No, not in the traditional sense. We see the car as a vessel for the experience and relationship that we create with our clients. What differentiates us is you are not contracting us for a ride, instead you are getting our time. The destination is always important, but how you need to prioritize your time is out first concern. We can do anything a car service can do, but with us you get a personal assistant behind the wheel.

Can we call to schedule a Chauffeur or Personal assistant for immediate service?
Each client interaction is typically scheduled in advance with a Chauffeur/PA. We do our utmost to accommodate all client requests, however the more last minute your request, the more difficult it is to guarantee availability. Ideally we prefer to have at least one day's notice to schedule client appointments. If you do have a last minute request, let us know, we will do our best to make it happen.
How do you qualify competency in both areas of Chauffeur and Personal Assistance?
This is our secret sauce! Our employees come from varied backgrounds and skill-sets where we look for personable and adaptable individuals. Our Chauffeurs go through an extensive training process encompassing routing, safety, client experience management and protocols that each new employee must successfully complete. Our Personal Assistants, receive situational training for the most common requests, and specific support training based on their interests and skill sets so that we can best match your needs. For both disciplines all our staff always have the office as a resource for anything that might require more extensive support.

This commitment allows for the most personalized and seamless service on every request that you make. If membership is something that interests you, then we can schedule a "Needs Assessment" to chat about what membership would mean for you. Ultimately, you do not have to be a member to use our company.
