Owner Jeffrey Goldin and his fleet of courteous chauffeurs transports passengers to and from airports in comfort. Luxury sedans cosset up to three clients behind tastefully tinted windows as they whisk passengers away to vacations, business trips, and high-profile traffic-court hearings. Airport-bound riders can relax inside their sleek, leather-lined cocoons, as they page through travel itineraries or strike up a conversation with their friendly driver.
Cruising down America's highways and waterways is thrilling, but everyone needs a break from life on the road now and then. That's where the team at Discount RV and Boat Storage steps in. The company's enormous spaces, both covered and uncovered, start at 40' x 11' and ensconce motor vehicles during their hiatus from a summer of fun or a winter of hunting down decathletes who came out of hibernation too early. Many of the spaces can be configured to be pull-through to make storage easy. Although vehicles are protected by a seven-foot-high brick wall topped by razor wire, drivers can visit them 24 hours a day via the lot's computer-controlled gate.
The experienced instructors at Arizona Elite Bootcamp understand that not everyone can do a one-handed pushup or bench-press a Fiat. Instead, they embrace each of their students’ individual abilities in boot camps, which combine the benefits of a strength and cardio workout with a motivational group mentality. In three outdoor locations, campers use both designated equipment and their own body weight to work their entire bodies. After workouts, clients can log in to the website’s fitness-tracking feature to view detailed reports and graphs that show their progress.
Blue Sky Airport Parking’s video-monitored lot is just a three-minute drive from Sky Harbor International Airport. As drivers pull in and park, the staff heads over to collect their luggage and escort them to terminals via an air-conditioned shuttle. The shuttle also picks guests up from the airport and drives them back to their cars. The well-lit facility features covered and uncovered parking spaces, and is surrounded by an 8-foot-high security fence.
Arizona Executive helps travelers weave around transportation hassles with a variety of chauffeur services, dedicating themselves to open lines of communication to help prevent late arrivals and minimize wait times. After an advance call to ensure that plans have not changed, the rovers will pick up passengers in a comfy sport-utility vehicle and offer complimentary bottled water for the ride. Drivers make themselves easy to find by using drop off and pick up areas located exclusively on the north side of flight terminals at the airport. Once you arrive at the baggage claim on the return leg of your trip, make a quick call to the transportation company and they'll speedily dispatch your coachman to the cell phone parking lot to await your arrival.
When Jason Kaplan discovered an untapped transportation niche in the hotel and resort industry, he started The Driver Provider. In the beginning, his one-man operation transported just a handful of clients. He let his business grow naturally, relying on word of mouth instead of hiring a sales staff or a team of skywriting dragons. Over time, he built relationships with luxury resorts and Fortune 100 companies, amassing a fleet of 1,200 sedans, vans, limos, buses, and SUVs. Because of his good reputation, the readers of Arizona Foothills voted The Driver Provider the Best Limo and Sweet Rides in 2011. In addition to running his business, Jason Kaplan was president of the Arizona Limousine Association for two years.
