A night to remember for Belgraves of London who managed to comfortably secure two Gold awards in the prestigious ‘Professional Driver QSi Awards’ for the 3rd consecutive year in a row. The Surrey-based chauffeur company took Gold in the ‘Chauffeur Operator’ category while Belgraves very own chauffeur – Joe Tranter was selected as the Gold medalist in the 2021 ‘Professional Driver of the Year’ category. It didn’t just stop there for Belgraves, the company managed to win the Silver award in the ‘Environment’ category causing them to walk away and secure three reputable awards in total on the night.
The Professional Driver magazine’s QSi Awards ceremony, open to every chauffeur and private hire company in the UK, is an award night designed to recognise companies, operators and individuals that demonstrate excellent standards of quality, service and innovation.
Professional Driver Editor – Mark Bursa had the following to say about the chauffeur company:
“Winning Gold in the Chauffeur Operator category is a tough ask. But Belgraves has grown, adapted and survived, despite the pandemic. Belgraves has embraced electrification, replacing most of its diesel fleet with electric and hybrid cars. And has installed chargers at its office and at some of its drivers’ homes, helping them become champions of green chauffeuring in London.”
Meanwhile Mark Bursa had this to say about Belgraves Gold medalist chauffeur – Joe Tranter (pictured above):
“The judges loved Joe’s intense focus on detail, giving him the highest satisfaction rates with some of the most demanding clients, including some notoriously hard-to-please Hotel Concierges. This is a chauffeur who will go the extra mile for his clients – literally. For example, going to a particular bakery to buy a client’s preferred pastry. In addition, he’s become an early adopter of an electric vehicle, helping his employer lead the way in transitioning to an electric fleet”.
What’s more impressive about this award is that the ‘Professional Driver of the Year’ category is specifically designed to single out a chauffeur or private hire driver who is judged to be the best of his craft in the UK. This is why we take immense pride that Joe has received this award which greatly translates to the rest of our drivers here at Belgraves.
A final comment from Mark Bursa stated:
“We were overwhelmed by the quality of the entries, and it was a very tough job to pick our winners. Only very good operators made the short list, so we can be sure our Gold, Silver and Bronze winners are among the very best in Britain”.
