Charleston SC Private Car Service and Group Transportation
Having given up driving several years ago due to medical reasons, I relied upon taxis and the inadequate public transit system in the Charleston area, before I began using “Ride It Out” for all my transportation needs in the fall of 2010: e.g., getting to and from work on a daily basis; scheduled doctor, dentist, etc. Appointments; attending to errands or special events; and, ground transportation to and from the train/bus stations, etc. With each ride, the driver has been punctual, pleasant, accomodating and infectiously positive in spirit, making sure that I was delivered to where I needed to be and back home again, comfortably and safely. I feel qualified in stating that “Ride It Out”, simply has no competition in the Charleston area, in terms of reliability, efficiency, safety and affordability; furthermore, I would venture that “Ride It Out” offers a level of professionalism, courtesy and overall savoir faire that is probably on par with, if not superior to, any of the area’s more expensive limousine or luxury private charter transportation services. I highly recommend “Ride It Out” to any individual, household or, business, as a confidential and reliable transportation alternative, serving loved ones or valued clients, on a regular, occasional or sustained basis.
