Cars On Demand technology and fail safe mechanisms
At Cars on Demand we use state of the art technolgy and we learn from our mistakes and we try to use technology to stops these mistakes from ever hapenning again.
90 minutes before each transfer, the website will promt drivers to confirm that they are on the way, if a driver does not do this, our computer systems will call this driver and remind them, and if there is no response then the computer will call the manager on duty and alert them that a driver has not confirmed. Luckily this is a very rare occurences as all of our drivers are reliable.
We work in an envirenment that is fluid and at the end of the day our drivers are human they might make the odd mistake but ever since we implemented this technology, it has brought down the number of mistake from 1 in 5000 to ZERO.
We were not perfect in the past, but we learnt from any of our mistakes and used tech to support our drivers.

The city of Brisbane between the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast, and inland from Moreton Bay. This hilly city serves as Queensland’s capital and is home to more than two million residents. The city is may not be the largest by population but by area, it dwarfs all other cities in Australia including Sydney and Melbourne.
Originally a penal colony, the city of Brisbane dates back to the turn of the nineteenth century. Though indigenous populations occupied the region long before the Europeans, the city as we know it was birthed when Mathew Flinders came upon Moreton Bay.
Because the city is located in the state dabbed sunshine state, you should expect year-long warm weather and sunshine, even in the winter. This fact makes Brisbane very desirable. The city and its inhabitants are renowned for their laid back nature, a characteristic unique to the Aussie culture. Activities are plenty within the city and are discussed in more detail below.

I’ve been using Cars on Demand for my personal and business travel needs for the past 6 months. They have provided exceptional service at all hours of the day to suit my constantly changing needs, including accommodating late flights and 4am pick ups. The staff are so helpful and reliable I would highly recommend them.
We used Cars on Demand for our wedding recently and found them to provide a really excellent service. It was so nice to have the car ready and waiting with bottles of water at the end of the evening. The driver was courteous and got us to our destination efficiently and with no fuss. The office was easy to contact to confirm / alter bookings and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the service to anyone wanting reliability and efficiency in getting from A to B in style!
Simply put, we were incredibly happy with the service. It was easy to arrange, both drivers were polite, professional, helpful and punctual (both arriving early). The service was reasonably priced and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others (and already have).
