Soapsuds are no strangers to the shiny surfaces of Black Tie Transportation's fleet of luxury vehicles. That's because the staff washes and details them daily, resulting in pristine rides for airport, event, and wedding transportation services. Professional drivers pilot each trip aboard one of their ten different vehicle types, including Lincoln Towncars, a shuttle van, a Lincoln Navigator stretch limo, and a 57-passenger motor coach with TVs, DVD player, and Wi-Fi. Though passengers can create their own itineraries using macaroni and glue, Black Tie Transportation also orchestrates guided tours of wineries, historical sites, and cities.
Royal Limousine’s Lincoln Town Cars, Hummers, mobile-nightclub party buses, and Rolls Royce Phantoms are piloted with military precision, thanks to staff members with backgrounds in the armed services. Skilled at making police-escorted runs for celebrity performers and speakers, the chauffeurs helm specialized tours to view holiday lights or visit area wineries, and they ensure safe transportation during once-in-a-lifetime events such as proms, weddings, or cryogenic freezings. Customers can also opt for stand-alone chauffeuring services, supplying their own vehicle for a Royal Limousine driver to steer around town.
Classic Elegance Limousine Service packs its newly refurbished 14-passenger limo party bus with sensory stimulation for the discerning party posse. The sound system administers an auditory wet willy of delight with dual 12-inch subwoofers and six Sony speakers attached to iPod and MP3 hookups. A 32-inch flat-screen TV comes stocked with a library of music videos, a PlayStation 3, and Blue-ray and DVD players. Tinted-black windows protect the eyes from the harsh glare of pedestrian jealousy so that you can completely lose yourself in the 550 colored LED lights, two lasers, whirling disco ball, and four strobe lights. The bus is also equipped with a wet bar that includes stemware and ice bins. Libations are not provided, but there’s no shame in hauling your own store-bought or bathtub-brewed beverages.

For years, Captain Sonny Kay plied the waters of the Caribbean in his yacht, the Saltshaker. Then, in 1983, he headed north to Lake Norman to share the joy of boating with others. Over the years, he amassed a fleet of other watercraft, and though he's since retired, Brian and Nichole MacArthur carry on his legacy today at Saltshaker Marine. Depending on the type of aquatic adventure folks are looking for, the duo puts together custom rental packages for pontoons and wave-runners.
