What our Customers Say


Fantastic, fast, and professional!! Easy to arrange transportation and very reliable. We had an issue with our return flight being cancelled and did not find out until we arrived at the airport. Our driver was very accommodating and waited for us to make alternative plans and drove us to a nearby hotel. Great service and great people!

Jeramiah Florio

In Wilmington, there are several choices for cabs but only one "Car-Service." I have continuously utilized The Transporter exclusively 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!

Mary, a frequent ILM Commuter

I've hired The Transporter for years for regular and frequent travel to/from ILM. They are always available at the reserved time, and their drivers are very professional and polite, friendly and helpful. The vehicles are ultra clean and comfortable. I plan to continue using them and highly recommend them.

Liz A.

Traveling to Bald Head Island by plane is not a simple task. It's a LONG drive to/ from Wilmington! But it was made much more pleasant by using 'The Transporter'. Richard & Mike are efficient, timely and offer a VERY friendly service both during our enquiry, at pickup and during our trip from Wilmington to Bald Head. Richard and Mike provided first class service with a spot of history about this beautiful part of the world. Their genuine passion for their location and providing service to their customers shone through. We thoroughly recommend your services to anyone in the Wilmington/Bald Head area!

Larry & Colleen Czarnik, Sydney, Australia

Richard,I want to thank you for all of your coordinating the many pick-ups to and from the airport over this past weekend. All passengers were extremely pleased with your services, and you certainly made it all very easy for us.

Joanne Phelan

We have been using NC Transporter for a few years, both for ourselves and our guests, and we have always been pleased with the efficiency and on-time performance of this company. Their cars are always clean, their drivers are pleasant and there are no safety issues to be concerned with. The Transporters have never disappointed us and we recommend this company with full confidence.

Evelyn Agnoff

Great service! We enjoyed our ride to Wilmington with Mike. We had him on our trip back to the Raleigh airport as well. Highly recommend NC Transporter!

Leslie Williams and family.

Richard, You've made a client for as long as we're going to Bald Head. The drivers were great, very prompt. Really glad to do business with you and look forward to doing it again next summer! Thanks for all the help and time ensuring we made it to and from our vacation.

Patrick J. Stiff, Jr., Directorÿof Information Systems, Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity

Hi Richard, Thanks again for the excellent service in picking up my daughter and delivering her safely and securely home. When no other regional services could be entrusted, NC Transporter could!  Please pass on my sincere appreciation to the rest of the NC Transporter staff and Shane for a job well done.

Eric, US Navy (Japan)

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!

Rob Guthrie

My mother was so pleased with her trip and for her to feel comfortable and and not have any worries regarding her trip to/from the airport was an amazing success within itself.ÿ As my sister and I initially stated, we were very hesitate and had our reservations regarding locating a car service for our mother's trip. 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!

A. Rountree

Rich and Mike are reliable and fun to be with. We recommend them all the time.

Kathy & Warren Jones

The best thing about The Transporter is, they arrive and pickup on time. There is never a wait and their cars are clean and non-smoking.


I have many airport shuttle services over the years. The guys at Transporter came to our home before dawn, loaded the luggage and got our family of four to the airport exactly as planned. On the way home, I just made one call to confirm our flight, and they were there when we deplaned. Excellent and personal. First class all the way. Thanks guys.

Jay M.

I have been using your services for a few years now, and mainly because of consistently good service. It is now easy to make reservations online, and know that your driver will arrive right on time! That is huge for me!! Friendly, courteous drivers as well make the experience a good one.

Cathy M.

We had a great experience with The Transporter. They were flexible and able to accommodate our large group and varying schedules. We will use them again!

Megan C.

We were cheerily met at the Wilmington airport by our driver from The Transporter. He loaded the luggage of our party of 3 children and 3 ladies into the van and off we headed to the ferry for Bald Head Island. The driver was great, very informative, and accommodating of our grocery stop request. He picked us a week later - punctual as ever! We will definitely use The Transporter on our next visit!

Lora Drott

NCTransporter provided my family with great service on our family vacation to NC. They were considerate, timely and professional. When we return to NC and need transportation they are the ones I'll call and rely on. Thanks for the great service.

Lacie, Alvin, Texas

We used The Transporter in July during a very involved vacation with our two young granddaughters. They picked us up the the Wilmington NC airport and drove us to the Bald Head Island Ferry dock. They were on time and extremely helpful. At 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! Thank you Richard and Mike.

Molly Brining, San Francisco, California

The Transporter always provides professional, dependable, and friendly customer service. As a business traveler, I'm very fortunate to have a resource such as 'The Transporter' to rely on for dependable transportation services. In addition, the vehicles are always top notch and the team is always willing to go above and beyond to accommodate your travel plans.


Wonderful and very reliable service, excellent communications from start to finish! The Transporter met the flight at Wilmington and my daughter was at the ferry dock in Southport in no time. I will recommend the Transporter to all my North Carolina friends in the area!

Marian D. Damewood, Baltimore, MD

Mike drove us around quite a bit while we were in NC for a wedding. He was always right on time. When he dropped us off at the airport, we realized we had another guests car keys on us! Mike kindly drove the keys back to the hotel for us so we wouldn't miss our flight and my in-laws wouldn't be stranded. (Thanks again!) I was really very pleased with the customer service that NC Transporter provides for their clientele. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for transportation in the area.

Kristina Endriss

The Transporter has always been extremely reliable and affordable. We use them every year and strongly recommend them.


What I find most professional about the "Transporter" team is their level of reliability and accountability. Whenever I need to be somewhere, I can count on their team to get me there, to work within my time schedule and accommodate my needs. Most of all, safety is addressed in the functionality of their vehicles and in the professional demeanor of the drivers. I never have to worry about being stranded at the airport when I know the "Transporter" team is around.

Dr. Brenda

What can I say about the service offered by Transporter? Efficient, friendly, and most importantly always professional. We utilized their services for over 3 years; when out of town Board Members travel in quarterly to our Corporate Headquarters or whenever transportation needs arise, whether to the airport or one of our manufacturing facilities we've never had a complaint, they always go the extra mile to ensure outstanding customer service.


Thanks again to The Transporter. My flight was late again, but The Transporter tracked it and was still waiting for me when I arrived hours late. Thanks for being transportation I can depend on.

Ann Marie

Whenever I know I am flying into Wilmington, NC, the first call I make is to The Transporter. It doesn't matter what time of day I need them, they are always there with a big smile and a warm, friendly hello. All of the drivers are courteous and safety conscious, and the cars are immaculate.

Susan L

My wife and I have used The Transporter many times. We have found them to be professional, always on time and the drivers extremely pleasant and accommodating. We recommend them highly.

Mr. & Mrs. D. Rich

We use "The Transporter" service to the airport in preference to any of the other taxi companies. The cars are always clean and the drivers are friendly and obliging even when we arrive or depart at inconvenient times. Once you experience The Transporter you will wonder why you have not always been using this totally reliable service.


Tom Gibbons.

The Transporter is an excellent company to work with. The staff took my last-minute, 10pm call and was able to fit me into the schedule. When my cell phone died en route to Southport, Richard let me use his phone to call my father and figure out where we were meeting. He even dropped me off at a boatyard instead of the ferry landing that we had originally scheduled. I will definitely use their services again and recommend them to anyone! Thanks for your great service! Hope all is well.

Ally R.

Our company has hired The Transporter for transporting individuals and groups which many times include international travelers. The drivers are always punctual, professional, and courteous with neat, clean vehicles. In addition they are attentive to the needs of our associates and guests. Whether calling or emailing for service I always receive a prompt reply. They are truly a service oriented company and I will continue to refer colleagues and friends.

Teresa W.

Just wanted to drop you a note and tell you how happy I was with the service provided by The Transporter for my trip from Wilmington to Bald Head Island. The driver could not have been more helpful and courteous, as well as funny. I will absolutely use The Transporter's service again upon my return down to Bald Head Island. Thanks for a good job.

Gary Shallop

The Transporter is the best way to get around town hands down. The vehicles are clean and comfortable and the drivers and owners are professional and courteous.

JB, Kansas City

I would to compliment your company on its service. Our driver, Shane, arrived early. He was very polite, personable and provided a pleasant journey to the airport.We plan on returning to NC in a few months and will be calling upon your company for assistance with our trip.

Louis Raddigan

I used the NC Transporter when I visited Wilmington and needed a ride to my hotel at Wrightsville Beach. The driver was prompt and clearly identified himself at the airport as I left my terminal. I was pleased with my experience; I had a safe, clean, and friendly ride to my final destination. I will definitely use The NC Transporter the next time I visit Wilmington.

Lauren Lytwak

Hi Guys.  What ever you do - do not remove me from your site or mailings.   Bald Head seems to be the one thing in the summer that is a constant.   You make my planning so much easier and I have never had a problem nor has any of the people I have referred.  Have a very healthy, happy, prosperous New Year.

Bill Grywalski

My travel plans occasionally become unstable due to weather conditions and as a result my flights have been delayed or cancelled. A real bummer for a business traveler that is made easier to take by the dependable airport pick-up service provided by the crew of the Transporter. They've always been there whenever my flight finally does arrive. Thanks guys for having such dependable service!

DB Simpson

I used the services of The Transporter to get from the Wilmington Airport to Holden Beach. The driver was waiting for me even though my plane was delayed. The car was spotless, the driver was great, and the price was very reasonable. It was a completely positive experience.

Peter Rice, Centreville, VA

Knowing that the folks at The Transporter were reliable allowed me to really relax and enjoy my vacation. I didn't have to worry about how I was going to make it back from the vacation house to the airport on time for my flight. The car was on time, the ride was lovely, and their insider knowledge of the shortcuts, meant that I was at the airport early!

What can I say about the service offered by Transporter? Efficient, friendly, and most importantly always professional. We utilized their services for over 3 years; when out of town Board Members travel in quarterly to our Corporate Headquarters on Military Cutoff or whenever transportation needs arise, whether to the airport or one of our manufacturing facilities we've never had a complaint, they always go the extra mile to ensure outstanding customer service.


Fran and I have always enjoyed your services over the past six years, and we are always assured of being transported by employees and vehicles with the highest standards in cleanliness, safe and attentive drivers and true professionals. The alternatives we have tried can not even come close to a single quality standard.

Fred Pickler, Fred Pickler & Associates Inc.

I just wanted to express my thanks to you for making my son's trip to MCT so smooth. The driver was "cool" I was told, and patiently waited for my son to change into his uniform. He also was kind enough to do a quick stop!! You made this mother very happy and relieved. I will recommend you to anyone in need of transport down there, and if Sam stays there for his MOS school, I will surely give my business to you as well when I visit. Thanks again.


You guys are great, on time, efficient. I'll use you every time I come to the area and have passed the word along to many others.

Lynn C

Had family members coming in from all over and no way to get on and off Baldhead to get them without taking up most of a day that we could be at the beach! NCTransporter did a great job meeting our family members as they picked up their baggage at the Wilmington airport and getting them on the ferry, on time and hassle free! And the rest of us were able to enjoy a day on the beach until they joined us. This is the only way to go!

Greg Folley

Richard, back in UK after a great holiday in the US. Thanks for all your work to get us to the 3pm ferry to Bald Head Island. Shane was at the Hilton by 1:45 leaving us plenty of time to meet up with family and make the ferry. Thanks for your efforts. Hope to engage you again.


It was a pleasure to use NCTransporter. They were on time waiting for our flight. Courteous, polite and dropped us off ON Time for our next destination. They even advised us ahead of time if our flight was delayed or on time.I would highly recommend them to anyone traveling to Wilmington, North Carolina.

DM Ward

Last fall, several members of my family traveled to Bald Head Island for a wedding. I contacted The Transporter for a shuttle from the airport to the ferry, and was pleased with all communications prior to trip, and the prompt and courteous service to and from my destination. I would highly recommend them for your travel needs.

Marge Humphreys

I have used your service several times after vacationing in Bald Head Island and flying into Wilmington, NC. We were met at the baggage claim each time and had a clean comfortable vehicle that easily accommodated us and our baggage. The driver was always friendly and the rates were very fair for the 40 minute commute to the Ferry. I would highly recommend your service to anyone, and plan on using you again next time I vacation in the area.

Colin Reasinger

A good reliable service since their beginning.
