Why are some company’s rates so much lower?
We maintain our fleet, by top mechanics. Our current model vehicles are detailed daily.  Our drivers receive top professional pay, because this guarantees that our valued clients receive impeccable service and product. Believe it or not many of this area’s transportation operators have vehicles that are not maintained adequately. Even more concerning is the fact that they may not be insured properly; or even licensed to carry passengers for hire – presenting a low rate. Be very suspicious if you receive a quote that is very low.

How many passengers fit into your limousines comfortably?
Our Cadillac Limousines have been designed by us to serve you better. Our largest vehicle is a 10 passenger Cadillac. But BEWARE; many operators will call this length of stretch limousine a 12 or even 14 passenger. Your 10 passengers will actually be comfortable! We have made these cars to fit adults…not prom kids. With a raised roof and lowered flat floor; you have more room. They also utilize oversized rear doors and an additional oversized curbside door. We have designed these in direct conjunction with Cadillac engineers and our coachbuilder, LCW, a Master Coachbuilder located in Texas. These cars have twice the air conditioning capacity of most limousines as well as aircraft style insulation to handle our Florida heat. We are very proud of these unique vehicles and will gladly arrange a personal viewing so that you can see first-hand how much more room they offer versus a standard ‘off the rack’ limousine that our competitors use. We are proud to say that one of these cars was actually in the Cadillac Calendar for the year after it was built, and another one was displayed by the coachbuilder (LCW) at the national limousine show for its unique design. This Cadillac also remained on the Cadillac website for interior design for over a year!
