"In Wilmington, there are several choices for cabs but only one "Car-Service." I have continuously utilizedThe Transporterÿexclusively for the last 7 years in Wilmington. In my mind, they are not a cab company but a "Car-Service." I travel weekly for business and they have never been late for a pick-up, whether from home or the airport. The Transporter ALWAYS has prompt, professional and courteous service. All of their vehicles are very clean AND they do NOT allow smoking. They are the BEST! "

After we both communicate our concerns and you reassured us of your professionalism and that our concerns were no problem and that you would ensure my mother would be safe, we both felt at ease and rest assure you delivered beyond our expectations!

"We used The Transporter in July during a very involved vacation with our two young granddaughters. ÿThey picked us up the the Wilmington NC airport and drove us to the Bald Head Island Ferry dock. ÿThey were on ÿtime and extremely helpful. ÿAt the end of our week on the island, we needed to drive to Raleigh and Richard and Mike put us in touch with a one-way rental car agency on Oak Island which was more economical than having them drive us! ÿThank you Richard and Mike. "

Tom Gibbons. 

"I landed in Wilmington around 10 PM EST, and had to catch the 11 PM ferry from Southport to Bald Head Island--the last ferry to leave that night. My driver was waiting at the airport curb when I got my luggage. Without breaking speed limits, he got me to the boat at exactly 10:57 PM, and I got on board. Had my driver been five minutes late at the airport, I would have missed my ferry, which would have cost me some $75 for hotel fare in Southport. I was, and remain, very grateful for his punctuality!"
