"Michael was absolutely amazing!"
"We were recently in Kelowna for a wedding and Michael was our chauffeur from our Airbnbs to the ceremony, reception, and back at the end of the night. We were the only ones with a child (1.5 years old) and on the way to the ceremony, we realized we had forgotten our stroller. After dropping the guests off at the reception venue, he drove just me and my toddler back to our Airbnb so we could get the stroller. He helped carry it onto the bus and made sure we had everything we needed. At the end of the night, he helped me load and unload the stroller and even waited until he saw that we were in safely before he drove away. I would definitely recommend this service and will use it again! Michael was entertaining, kind, and an all-around great guy. He definitely made our trip easier!"
Did you know that the wedding couple, the corporation/business, the host(s) along with licensees, managers, venue owners and servers are all legally responsible to take reasonable steps to prevent guests from driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs? There is a responsibility to ensure that all attending guests, at a wedding, party or event, arrive safely to a place to ‘sober up.’
It’s called Duty of Care. It’s part of BC’s Liquor Control and Licensing Act and Occupiers Liability Act.
Cheers’ Safe-Ride-Home® service provides peace of mind through convenience, ease, effectiveness, and safety while satisfying the Duty of Care responsibility. Let us help you get everyone home safely to the ones they love.

"Safe Ride Home"
"After having dinner out with friends we were unable to get a taxi despite waiting for over an hour! Decided to walk home which would have been a long one in heels (6kms) AND likely a tad unsafe. (1:00 am) However, after witnessing us trying yet again to hail a passing cab, Allen who was driving some young kids home from a music festival, opened the door to his coach and kindly offered us a ride! What a nice guy!! We were able to get driven right to our door for less than a taxi would have been and in the comfort of his clean air-conditioned coach! I took his card and we will be sure to use his services when we can for a wine tour/party or event, or as a shuttle! Thank you, Allen, for taking the time to help us out! You have new customers for sure!"
