For 40 years, the watersports enthusiasts of High Trails Canoe and Kayak Outfitters have outfitted visitors for outdoor adventures, renting the vessels they lift their name from along with standup paddleboards. In addition to renting gear, the staff also teaches kayaking classes that include beginner and advanced touring courses, as well as how to navigate surging waters such as rapids or a neighbor's hot tub. For sportsmen looking to purchase their own watercraft, High Trails' team stocks a fleet of multisport, sit-on-top, and hybrid kayaks from brands such as Hurricane Kayaks and Heritage Kayaks. An online advice page guides guests through choosing kayaks, encouraging them to consider design, material, and comfort.
The certified mechanics at Rockwall Ford keep cars in tip-top shape so that they pass mandatory yearly state inspections and surprise dashboard white-glove tests. The hour-and-a-half inspection process includes a thorough going-over that addresses the car’s safety systems, checking for properly functioning brakes, steering, lights, and heartbeat. Tires and windshields are tested for durability before the motored steed is hooked up to a computer to measure its eco-conscience, examining emissions and the number of environmental organizations on the car's speed dial. Professional detailers then painstakingly wash and dry the car by hand and vacuum its interior, ensuring that each coupe drives away feeling as groomed as a presidential poodle.
What makes your business stand out?
Our focus on each passenger's travel experience. We strive to provide a reliable, efficient, and safe travel experience for our passengers and do this by ensuring we value their time and experiences as highly as they do. Our onboard cabin crew not only provides great service en route and during boarding, but ensure our passengers' safety and overall enjoyment during travel. While some carriers aim to provide the lowest-cost offering possible, our goal is to provide the best value and travel experience.
What inspired you to start or run this business?
Traveling frequently for work, I realized how unenjoyable much of my travel was and how much productivity I was losing during travel. Starline aims to let passengers take back their travel time, be it for enjoyment or work purposes. While it's great to save on gas, the bigger benefit is regaining your time and peace of mind in not having to worry about travel.
