5. Continuity of drivers
We strive to provide continuity of service for our customers. The same driver will service your location so staff are not disrupted.

We will be up front with our pricing. There won’t be any hidden costs or service contracts with automatic rate increases. We aim to provide cost-effective and convenient services.

According to the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, studies show that by using a locally owned and operated small business, “four times more of your dollars stay and support the community” than if you were to spend those dollars obtaining a service through a chain or big box business. And according to Independent We Stand, “for every $100 you spend at locally owned businesses, $68 will stay in the community.”
