Magic City Limousine & Sedan LLC's luxury vehicles charter clients in comfort and style. Professional and prompt chauffeurs helm executive sedans while passengers kick back and prep for business meetings or devise the pop geography quiz they'll be giving their pilots. Magic City offers luxury transportation to business events, proms, weddings, and airports, and has executive day coaches that can accommodate up to 30 passengers.
A family of six sinks into the plush leather seats of the Lincoln Town Car and watches a DVD together before the driver pulls up to the airport and helps them with their luggage. Sometimes this scenario plays out with a family, and sometimes it’s with a group of business partners, but for the drivers at After Hours Limousines, the goal is always the same—to transport passengers to their desired destinations on time with professional courtesy. In addition to regular airport visits, the company’s sleek cars, party buses, coaches, and trolleys are often trusted to take clients around town for a night of clubbing, from wedding ceremonies to receptions, and to bring clients to meetings. With limo service packages, clients can take more creative outings by customizing arrangements for an excursion to a sporting event or to Arrington Vineyards for a picnic, wine tasting, and a reminder of what fresh air tastes like. To accommodate budget travelers, the fleet also includes a minivan that can seat up to six.
Up to 250 vehicles can fit into the lot at Alabama Airport Parking while they await their owners’ return to Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport. The outfit, converted from a three-decade-old rental-car operation in 2004, safely tends to customers’ vehicles while they’re on holiday or scouring planes for SkyMall back issues to complete their collections. In addition to keeping cars safe and sound, the attendants perform extra services for additional fees, such as car washes and detailing so that cars are fresh for customers’ returns. The company also runs a parking-points program that awards frequent customers with points that can add up to free car washes or parking.
Birmingham Bicycle Company stocks name brand bicycles including Scott, Pinarello, and Jamis, along with a variety of gear including clothing, helmets, racks, and sunglasses. The crew all cycle in their free time, so they can help customers locate the type of equipment they need for racing or leisure. When not selling pedals and helping with bike fitting, the shop sponsors weekly rides for cyclists of all skill levels; check their Facebook page for the schedule.
The catalyst for many on- and off-road excursions, Chatt Town Scooters puts drivers in motion with new scooters, used motorcycles, and by-the-hour vehicle rentals. UTVs prowl the dirt and jagged terrain in search of adventure, and scooters zip around town, veering into tight alleyways and hugging the turns of tiny drive-thrus. Parts, installations, and upgrades keep vehicles running smoothly, and the shop’s fashionable protective gear does the same for drivers.
The difference between buying a bike at a department store versus buying one at a specialty store is the staff members. Because they are well versed about riding mechanics and bike brands, they’re able to pair clients with ergonomic bikes suited to their intended use. The staff of Cycle Sport Concepts guides customers through the industrial show room’s rows of bikes, explaining which models are best suited for taking pleasure rides, racing, or for testing the speed of light by drag racing lampposts. Staff also put this knowledge to use when fixing bikes, usually repairing and returning rides within 24 hours.
