What philosophy do you follow in dealing with your customers? We bend over backwards to accommodate any customer requests and last-minute needs. The customer is always right — within reason.
What can your customers expect from you? Prompt, on time professional transportation, airport shuttle and limousine service in the nicest, newest cars in the Vail Valley, with well-dressed, professional drivers older than 25 years old, all properly background-checked with fingerprints on file with the Colorado Pubic Utilities Commission. We are registered with the state, the PUC and the Denver and Eagle airports. In addition, we are available for pick-up at all private jet centers in Colorado including the Vail Valley Jet center, Denver jet center and the facility at the Centennial airport.
Tell us a little about your background, education and experience: I’m a former U.S. Marine — artillery and motor transportation — brought up by my ultra conservative mom in Virginia. I’m a former raft guide and video kayaker and a Class V raft guide, photo boater and safety kayaker for Nova Guides on the Eagle, Numbers, Pine Creek and Shoshone sections.
