I wasn't even attempting to advertise my own business in this thread, I was simply stating that 2700baht for a ride from Don Muang seems extremely high to me.
I can give you 2 other companies besides myself that are nearly 1000baht cheaper, Mr.T being one of them and Mr.Toom the other. They have tons of companies advertising limos in Thailand, yet in all my time here, I have yet to see a limo. Maybe its a BMW, or Mercedes in some cases, or larger newer vehicles like SUV's and vans in others, but no company here has a true limo. I don't know why people just don't call them what they really are, cars.
I leave it up to the consumer to decide what companies are best for them to use. If someone doesn't mind spending 2700baht, then thats up to them. I just simply stated that price is way above what any company I know of is charging. Not even knocking Image, as I made no direct statement about them, only the price that was stated.
As to not having a website up yet, with the purchase of 2 new vehicles, proper insurance and registration, plus the amount of time involved in operating the company, I have yet to meet with my friend to take care of my website. Its tough to get a picture of your whole fleet of cars, while they are all out working everyday. But if you think that after I get my website done, I will be charging 2700baht for a ride from Don Muang to Pattaya, you are sorely mistaken.
Look at it from this viewpoint if you choose to. Since I do not have a website up yet, I rely on word of mouth, and customer referrals, as well as customer reviews on various forums for incoming business. I am busy and running near booked most of the time, as well as charging rates that are among the most competitive in my travel areas. So, that means I am dependent on how good of a job my drivers do, as well as the prices I charge, rather then just letting a website draw in customers. If anything, the fact that I haven't gotten the website up yet, means I have to do a better job then the guy next to me, and try to make sure my customers are that much happier.
There are a few of my vehicles. We have 2 of the black Avanzas as well. I am not knocking any company in this post, if you look at my statement and read it, I just said 2700baht was insane. Thats my personal feeling on the matter, as I know how much almost every company in BKK and Pattaya charge.
I don't need to knock any company, especially since many companies hire my cars to do pickups, and charge a commission fee on top of our rate. You would be surprised to know how many of us transport companies are affiliated through business dealings, or borrowing drivers to for transports. A good friend of mine that used to run a bar, used to write a review column about other bars. He never had anything bad to say about any bar he reviewed. When he was asked why, he simply said, the people will go into the bars and find out for themselves, I don't need to point out the bad in a place, the customers will do that and make those decisions on their own. I operate the same way in my business. So don't confuse my thinking a price is out of line, to attacking another company.
