We all have heard of the saying “don’t hate us because you aint us “along with many other sayings such as “Don’t hate appreciate” the list goes on and on. After the media scandal with the fiction customer “Briann” Sober Girls Designated Drivers Vancouver BC just kept pushing forward. In light of NYC terrorist attack executed by an Uber driver SGDD stated “As city folks we are made of stronger stuff than concrete we are made of our dreams and hope is our strength”.  At Sober Girls Designated Drivers Vancouver BC our team is a winning one; we do not fret we stand in solidarity. It has come to our attention there is a non-licensed DD service promoting themselves as Sober Girls Designated Drivers Vancouver BC on google in an AdWords campaign. First off AdWords are not to get a website on the front page and is not an SEO (search engine optimization) tool. The core purpose of AdWords is the same idea as a coupon book you get in the mail or a flyer it is a quick way to get the word out on promotions and specials. If you see an AdWords campaign and you scroll down on the page you most likely will not see that business anywhere on the first 3 pages of google. The problem in the Designated Driver industry is unlicensed Designated Driver services passing themselves off as the legal Designated Driver companies. We have blogged about this before in the past we have urged the public to do a city hall search because these gypsy designated drivers are not licensed. If an unlicensed business scratches your rim or causes damages are they just going to drive off and be like a ghost? Who will be accountable who is going to pay for the deductible that ICBC will charge you for repairs? If a business cannot even value and have the integrity to purchase a business license in the business owners name do you think these types of people should have care and control of your motor vehicle. It is unfortunate that we have to blog about other individuals lack of character but it is necessary because Sober Girls Designated Drivers Vancouver BC have proven that we will  stand strong and tall on our mission statement of morals and beliefs on how service should be executed; timely, friendly, legally and contractual service. Sober Girls Designated Drivers Vancouver BC was started by a mother and daughter team they started from just having a business registration, license and car and that is only thanks to two very close family friends.  Mother and Daughter had to stay living out of the very Sober Girls car which you see on our advertisements until housing was vacant to move in with these dear family friends. The company started from the ground up while the SGDD Daughter dispatched and while the Mother took short designated rides out of Donegal’s Pub, Kennedy’s Pub and the Brownsville Pub in Surrey BC and the Mother having to walk back to her Daughter in the SGDD cruiser sometimes up to a 30 minute to 1 hour walk. If she was lucky she would get a bus depending on the time of night.  Sober Girls Designated Drivers Vancouver BC is a success story of a local BC business built from the ground up. Sober Girls Designated Drivers Vancouver BC believes that most other Designated Drivers have a heart as big as ours and we understand they are trying to offer a legitimate service.  As registered licensed businesses we must stick together to eliminate the gypsy DD services because the unlicensed unlisted unregistered services do not have any safety protocols, procedures, terms of service, fee’s and they totally disregard safety and the rights of other people. They want to be Sober Girls but when they arrive they want to smart mouth how bad our services because a Mother and Daughter team lifting themselves out of poverty is so bad and you know you can never trust family businesses ever. Okay sarcasm aside be smart and go directly to our website as opposed to google searching www.sobergirls.ca we are Sober Girls Designated Drivers dot CA for Canada because we are proud Canadians. Sober Girls Designated Drivers Vancouver BC hopes to be an advocate for others who have experienced poverty related issues and our passion is giving back to those who face the same obstacles the founders (Mother and Daughter) once faced and still struggles with due to misrepresentations of Sober Girls Designated Drivers Vancouver BC and media scandal. We hope that all consumers looking to book a Designated Driver looks for legitimate services because there are many like GVDD, DADD, ASA, A1, Doma and Designated Ride which we refer customers to when we are either busy or short staffed. These registered licensed DD businesses we have mentioned all have one thing in common we care about safety and service. The photo attached to this blog is an example of a gypsy DD service AdWords on Google and we recommend avoiding them at all costs; get a hotel, get a taxi, walk whatever you do “do not use them” they are not www.sobergirls.ca .
