Pros and Cons of Armored cars

As global violence, riots and crime rates rise, it is unsurprising that influential individuals are becoming increasingly vulnerable to attacks while traveling, creating the need for safe travel arrangements. Private Armored cars are extremely valuable in this regard.

Armored Car

An armored car is a reinforced vehicle designed to protect passengers from attacks and blasts, bullets. Such cars transport VIPs and valuables like money and jewelry for banks or casino trips. These have become increasingly popular in recent years, especially in areas where crime rates are high, of course, we do not scare you, we just want to know if we need them. If you escort high-profile guests like politicians, a reservation of a luxury armored vehicle can bea valuable investment – We can even drive you through the forest during the hunting season.

Pros of an Armored Car

Here are some significant benefits of owning an armored car:

  • Protection – Armored cars are constructed with high-tensile bullet-proof and shatterproof materials that withstand high impact. The interior is encased in ballistic fibers to protect against attacks from above or beneath, such as landmines. Their modified tires can roll enough times to leave the scene even after being shot. Cars protect and withstand bullets from most machine guns and rifles, as well as explosives. This ensures that your family or VIP client reaches their destination safely.

  • Protection Against Carjacking – Armored cars are difficult to carjack due to features like electric door handles which can electrocute an individual trying to break into the car. The bullet-proof glass and the highly effective armoring ensure that even individuals with guns can not threaten the driver.

  • Protection Against Accidents – These vehicles have safety features, such as blind-spot detection and shock-resistant door handles. The tires are resistant to punctures, gas attacks, and other hazards. Some armored vehicles have advanced suspension systems, cutting-edge GPS technology, and superior brakes, allowing them to offer the maximum protection possible to their occupants.

Cons of an Armored Car

Though armored vehicles are immensely useful, they have some disadvantages too:

  • High Costs – The cost of armored vehicles increases with the number of special protection applications and features installed. Also, their repair costs are significantly higher than regular vehicles. An armored vehicle will also need frequent oil changes, serpentine belts, and brake pad replacements. The tires also need frequent replacement due to the car’s heavy weight. Alongside this, armored vehicles are bigger and heavier than regular cars. This makes them consume a lot of fuel which further adds to the costs. We would like to ask you if you would like to reserve such a safety car?

  • Slow and Heavy – A significant disadvantage of armored cars is their enormous size and high curb weight. They are heavy, slow, easily detectable, and occasionally noisy and loud. Their massive size and inability to drive in all terrains can make it difficult for you to escape dangerous situations.

  • Distorted View in Windshields – Armored windshields can distort the curvature points, making looking left or right difficult. The greater the level of protection, the greater the distortion, which can reduce visibility at night.

We have started working in this new area for us – “high-profile clients transport service”, and we are thinking about which armored car town car or SUV we should buy in order to offer customers maximum security.
But we understand that armored vehicles are unreliable, expensive to maintain and maintain a car, and we must take into account that this should greatly increase the cost of the trip.

Every year, my wife and I make at least six visits to Vail to see our grandchildren. When travelling from Denver to Vail, we ALWAYS employ a intermountain express . They are consistently trustworthy and reasonable. Anyone and everyone should use the intermountain express , in my opinion.
Absolutely AMAZING This past weekend, my family visited a ski resort, so I set for a luxury mountain limousine service to pick them up in Vail and take them there. They were accurate! The dialogue was excellent! As they had previously promised, they called to discuss the pickup location and to confirm their arrival. My family's first experience travelling with luxury mountain limousine service was made incredibly easy and worry-free by the fact that they arrived exactly on time. For dependability and  peace of mind. Not to mention expense! In the future, I wouldn't think twice about using their services again. I appreciate it very much!

We recently used InterMountain Express for transfers between Denver, Aspen and Vail. They provided good, prompt, reliable service with nice cars and good communication. We had positive encounters. The drivers are very kind and well-versed in the area. Large, spotless, comfortable cars with DVD players were available. Would advise."

To go from keystone to Vail, I use this company. I had my family with me on the trip. The SUV was excellent and on time. The driver was extremely friendly and courteous. They make two calls on the way back, once the day before, to confirm the pick-up for the return. The return driver to keystone was also quite kind and courteous. Both SUVs were immaculate and attractive. I'm sure to use them again when I return to Vail.
