As the owner of a luxury car it occurred to me recently what a superb business niche luxury car transportation represents for the entrepreneur who wants to take a punt on a new business venture.
The idea came to me whilst I was searching for a luxury car transportation service for my Bentley, which I wanted moved from the UK down to my other home in the south of France.
I really did not want to go to all the trouble of moving it myself and certainly did not want anybody else driving my car all those miles either.
That is when I began to think that there should be a luxury car transportation service that specialises in helping people like me with their logistical challenges.
It wouldnt have to be exclusively for luxury car transportation either. It could be for any kind of prestige vehicle that you want to have transported, including vintage and even racing cars.
I for one would definitely be interested, and along with my friend Gerald, who I know wants his Lamborghini Murcielago moved to Dubai, that would make two of us.
Im not really too bothered about the price of a premium bespoke luxury car transportation service; in fact, my only reservation might be that it was not expensive enough for one of my personal cars.
Anyway, after a while I came across exactly what I was looking for: a luxury car transportation service that will take your vehicle anywhere in the world.
As a result, I suffered some mixed emotions. On one hand I was pleased to have found the luxury car transportation service I was looking for, but on the other I was disappointed that somebody was already taking advantage of this clever little niche.
Still, thats the way it goes I suppose.
The luxury car transportation firm we used was called Straight Eight Logistics, you can find them at www.straighteightlogistics.com
