The do's and don'ts of packing

If there’s one thing we know how to do, it’s pack. Our professional chauffeurs transport enough luggage for the clients of our Pittsburgh car service to know who is packing too much, who isn’t packing enough, and the dos and don’ts of packing for any trip. We might seem like nothing more than a Pittsburgh transportation service to you, but we are people who get to know travelers from every walk of life and every area of the world. We’ve learned a thing or two from speaking to our customers, and we’ve learned the importance of packing correctly on any trip. We want to share our knowledge with you, because we know packing correctly can make your entire trip and vice versa.


Check the Weather

May in Florida might be hot and miserable, but that doesn’t mean it’s the same in Pittsburgh or any other city. So, wherever you decide to travel, you must first check the weather. This is the best way to determine what you might want to pack, what you can avoid, and what might make you more comfortable when you land.


Pack Neutrals

It’s not cheap to pack several bags and put them on an airplane, which is why you want to keep your luggage to a minimum. Not only do most airlines charge you for each bag you carry on or check, you also get charged for the weight of each bag if it exceeds airline regulations. Now is a good time to learn the value of packing neutrals. When everything is in the same color palette, you can limit the number of shoes and accessories you bring. Neutral colors go with anything, so you’ll be able to take one pair of shoes much further than you would if you had packed a variety of different colors and styles.


Stick to Basics

Whether it’s business or travel, stick to the basics. If you pack jeans, make them a nice dark wash color with a great cut so you can wear them any time of the day. A black blazer can dress up any ensemble, and black dresses can be worn with sweaters, belts, jackets, and anything else to make them look like a different dress each time you wear them. When you stick to basics, you can help keep your packing to a minimum


Leave the Nice Stuff Home

There is no reason to take your most expensive jewels and other items on any trip with you. These make great targets for thieves, and they make you nervous. Leave them home and pack the fun, cheap stuff instead. It’s a great way for you to relax a bit while you travel.


Packing dos and don’ts involve the following:

-    Do pack light

-    Don’t pack a variety of color and styles

-    Do stick to neutrals

-    Don’t pack your valuables

-    Do think classic


It’s simple, it’s effective, and it never fails anyone who tries this at home. Think of all the money you’ll save when you’re not paying for multiple bags on a flight, and it’s less likely you will overpack and cause your bags to weigh too much.

Sooner or later, we all get to travel for business. Although most people see this as a chore, it doesn’t always have to be this way. We recommend the blog published by our Vancouver limo service friends at Griffin Transportation as their article gives some great tips on how you can mix business with pleasure.

From our clients:

Booked a limo for my kids and their friends for prom. We got an 8 passenger stretch Lincoln town car which was very nice. The limo was clean and very new looking. The exterior was clean and no blemishes. The driver was very courteous and attentive to details. My kids told me he was an excellent driver; he opened the door for them all the time and treated them like VIP's. Regency has great service, great drivers and in my opinion the most up to date vehicles. Also the pricing is exceptionally reasonable and affordable.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
