In order for your escort to easily identify you and document our activity, we respectfully request that you provide our friendly escort dispatcher with the following information when you call concerning an escort:
First and last name, current location, and phone number that you can be reached at, desired destination, brief personal description for easy identification, desired pick-up time.
