4 Crucial Holiday Safety Tips

With all the holiday decorations in place, the winter weather upon us, and the holiday excitement in the air, it’s easy to forget about safety precautions and diligent behavior. Even in our excitement, we shouldn’t forget that staying safe during this festive season is just as important as it has been throughout the year. With the unpredictable holiday weather and the exciting adventures to go shopping and visit family and friends, many safety concerns that you may not have been aware of will arise and our Pittsburgh Car Service is here to alert you on some of these and how you can mitigate them to ensure that you and your family stay safe throughout the holidays.

Don’t Leave Valuable Packages in your Vehicle

We might like to assume that the world is a good place, and it is, most of the time. But remember, not everyone you see at the shopping center is there to enjoy holiday shopping deals and discounts. There will be some people there who are looking to take advantage of the high activity and steal from shoppers. To avoid being a victim of such opportunists, we recommend that you deliver your purchases home as soon as you check out of the store; this is especially so for bulky goods such as electronics which will be prominent from your car window even if you cover them with a blanket.

Turn off your Lights/Fires

With the holiday spirit taking over, we are driven to decorate our homes, light up the fireplace, turn off the lights and light up candles etc., in order to create the perfect Christmas ambiance. As much as this is fun, do not forget to extinguish any fires you had lit before going. It is also prudent to turn off any Christmas lights before you call it a night because a single short in a light Turn off all of your holiday lights, from the ones outside to the ones on your tree (fake or real) when you go to bed; a single short in the circuit could easily result in a fire; better safe than sorry, right?

Beware of Poisonous Plants

Mistletoe, holly, and poinsettias are some of the most popular Christmas season plants; but what you probably didn’t know is that these plants are poisonous. They should, therefore, be kept away from children and animals at all times. We recommend that you keep these plants high up on the shelves where the kids and the pets can’t access them; this will minimize the risk of accidental consumption. However, if you feel that the risk of accidental consumption is too high, for example, your child is too young to listen to instructions, we suggest that you go for imitation plants as opposed to real ones in order to eliminate all risk.

From our clients:

I feel very secure to use Regency Shuttle. You make my travel less stressful and I can relax knowing I will get to my destination safely.
Your company has changed my life. Getting to and from the airport is wonderful now. You've taken the hassle out of travel. I also have used your service to pick up my children when they're arriving late at night at the airport. I'm completely secure in the fact that your drivers will check for delayed flights and will be there to meet them no matter the time. We've also used your company to book drivers in other cities. We are completely satisfied with your services.
Regency is my go to company for car service. I have been working with Stacey for a number of years, and I couldn't ask for a better service partner to work with. I even had to call in very early on a Sunday to cancel a reservation, and she was on it, and had it cancelled. I felt bad calling as early as I did, but she was a true professional. I recommend Regency to anyone that I know that needs car service. I'm grateful that you are always on time, and have very courteous, and friendly drivers. Your office staff is always great to work with too.
Our client changed her flights several times which affected the airport location and pick up time. Regency worked with us last minute and did not charge us for all the changes, we appreciate that! Thanks for the great customer service!
Service and staff have always been exceptional. Highly recommend your business to anyone who asks.
Whether requests were made by phone or email, follow up and confirmation would come immediately. This communication instilled confidence in the pick up of our guests regardless of where they were going in the city. We have also used Regency as our point of contact for other cities and countries outside the US when executives were traveling and we felt the same confidence that our requests would be fulfilled precisely as we asked.
Regency always does an outstanding job! You never fail to meet the high expectations that we have for transporting our customers, or individuals from our Corporate Office.
