Since 1996, A La Carte Limousine's professional chauffeurs have chartered a fleet of gleaming limousines, luxury sedans, party buses, and other vehicles that make travel a luxury. All of the drivers have passed drug tests, aced rigorous examinations, and bonded with their vehicles over candlelit dinners in the garage. With such high standards to maintain, they keep a professional attitude whether they're picking up corporate passengers, making airport runs, or leading winery tours through the countryside.
Passengers can choose from vehicles including stretch limousines with wraparound seating and roomy SUVs. Also in the mix are party buses wired to play movies and music as passengers swing 'round the dance pole beneath a mirrored ceiling.
The factory-trained technicians at EuroMotorcars Germantown mend bruised frames and sanitize cars with deliberate accuracy and cosmetic car products. During the one-hour paintless dent-removal package, the techs expertly equalize concave frame bruises, after which they hand wash the car, ornament exterior rubber with dressing, and vacuum broken promises from the seats and floors. The two- to four-hour mini exterior detail commences with a tire and wheel pressure wash, where blasts of water whittle layers of road scum down to clean, circular pavement pressers. Detailers proceed to meticulously hand wash the frame, dress the tires, and then apply a coating of hand wax to the body to add a glossy sheen to the paint. Customers may feel free to read, relax, or brainstorm new air freshener scents in the comfortable waiting room and refreshment center.

A-1 Luxury Limousine & Sedan Service offers curbside pickup for customers flying into town, during which professional drivers pull up directly next to the exiting areas and pick up curbs off the ground.
