The Business View – February 2017 / Small Business of the Month
As a U.S. Army veteran who served three tours in Iraq, William T. Hunter learned the value of being on time. So when he decided to start a limousine service after retiring from the military, he made punctuality a bedrock component of his business.
In business since 2008, Hunter Limousines employs a staff of four and operates a fleet of two limousines, three SUVs, two vans and a vintage car – a 1950s Chevrolet. All feature GPS tracking devices and free wi-fi, while other available features include DirecTV and minibars or coolers with ice for customers who wish to bring their own beverages. Hunter Limousines is the Chanber’s Small Business of the Month.
Office manager Jessica Boyd said timely arrival and departure is “paramount” to a successful limousine business. What sets Hunter limousines apart, she added, are the quality and cleanliness of its vehicles and the credentials of drivers.
“We believe we consistently provide the three essential elements of superb first-class car service – on time performance in a safe, comfortable and meticulously clean vehicle, driven by a polite, well-dressed and knowledgeable chauffeur,” Boyd said.
Hunter Limousines’ chauffeurs are thoroughly screened and undergo quarterly screening and annual re-certification. Many are current or previous members of the military or law enforcement.
“As the face of our company when driving our clients, our chauffeurs are professionally attired, considerate and skilled at providing appropriate courtesies when servicing your luxury transportation needs,” Boyd said. “When selecting a premium service, one expects a premium product. Hunter Limousines takes pride in the professional appearance, detailed cleanliness and thoughtful amenities of our entire fleet of vehicles. We go the extra mile to create the first-class experience our clients prefer.”
Hunter Limousines has also been active in charitable work, donating limousine service to Goodwill Easter Seals for special needs children and to two Mobile County children with terminal cancer. The staff also has donated its time, location and tools to assemble donated bicycles for the Mobile County Sheriff’s Department to distribute at Christmas.
