Family Owned & Operated Charleston Limo Service

While Carolina's Executive Limo Line has established a great reputation in Charleston for our reliable transportation options, we wanted to share the story of how our company came to be. No matter if it's corporate transportation for a business event, black car service for airport transportation, a special limousine for a birthday milestone, or wedding transportation for when the big day finally arrives, we're going to get to know a lot about you, so it's only fair you know about us!

Family Background

Kim Klaiber had spent the better part of ten years working as a national project manager traveling with his company, spending upwards of 200 days a year on the road managing projects nationwide. Kelly Klaiber, a financial advisor for the more 30 years, had her own firm that she operated out of their home. Justin Bailey graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2007. He spent his first six years out of college working as a tournament director with the PGA of America in Dallas, Texas, managing upwards of 250 golf tournaments, corporate outings, and charity events annually.

Limousine Transportation Service?

Growing tired of Kim being on the road full time, and Justin being so far away in Dallas, in 2009 our family decided it was time for a change. We looked at different business ideas and liked the concept of a high-end transportation company. Living in Fort Mill, SC we had a great opportunity to service not just our area, but all of Charlotte, NC. We liked the idea of a "party bus," but we wanted to make sure we offered something that was luxurious, not tacky or trashy. Our first purchase was a 35-foot Krystal Coach limo bus that was built from the ground up to be a luxury limousine with the ability to carry up to 28-passengers. With the purchase of this limo bus, Carolina’s Executive Limo Line was born!

 

Our business grew so quickly that we added an additional Krystal limo bus the following year. Kim was driving trips, Kelly was handling administrative duties, and Justin remained in Dallas, preparing an expansion plan that would position us for a launch in a second market. 

The Newest Limo Service in Charleston

After much discussion, and with the full support of our family, Justin chose Charleston, South Carolina as our new target market. In 2013 we bought a third limo bus and a brand new Cadillac sedan, and Justin officially relocated back to the Carolinas to launch our Charleston location! With so much success in such a short period of time, we decided to sell our Charlotte business to a local affiliate, and invest all of our time and effort to the transportation needs of Charleston and the South Carolina Lowcountry.

 

In 2014 we had a brand new Mercedes-Benz limo bus custom built for us, and added a luxury Lincoln Navigator. In February 2015 we brought Charleston the newest, most high-end limo coach it's ever seen. Another new bus, this one custom built based on feedback from clients. 

The Future of Charleston Limousine Transportation

Carolina's Executive Limo Line remains committed to offering Charleston the newest and most luxurious limousines and buses in town. In 2016 we added a custom built full size bus, our brand new 2016 corporate shuttle coach. In addition, we've completely upgraded our black car fleet to include a 2016 Cadillac XTS Sedan, and the nicest luxury SUV in Charleston, our 2016 Cadillac Escalade. In March 2017, with help from the incredible crew at First Class Customs, Inc.we finally finished the build on our second brand new Mercedes Executive Limo Bus! 

While we have grown steadily over the past few years, our mission is to remain a boutique company, offering quality over quantity. When others offer a Town Car - we offer a Cadillac, when others offer a Suburban - we offer an Escalade, when others offer a Mercedes Sprinter shuttle van - we offer full limousine versions of the same vehicle. We may not have the most vehicles in town, but we have the newest and most luxurious, that's a guarantee. Our concept

 

With an emphasis on customer service, we enjoy building long-lasting relationships with our clients. We consider it a success when clients become friends. We remain family owned and operated and have no plans to change that. Tell us about yourself and how we may be able to assist you with your transportation needs. Call us anytime, we don't pay some strangers at a call center to answer our phones, your call is always going to the cell phone of one of the owners! World class service with a small town feel. We look forward to serving your Charleston transportation needs.

The Safest Transportation Company in Charleston SC

The safety of our clients is our number one priority. All Carolina's Executive Limo Line team members must submit to pre-employment and random drug testing, SLED background checks, and sex offender registry checks. Official 10-year driving records are on file for each employee before they ever operate a CE Limo Line vehicle. 

All drivers of commercial vehicles have at minimum a Class B CDL with a passenger "P" endorsement, and have up to date SCDOT medical cards on them at all times. We follow all FMCSA rules and regulations as it pertains to buses and commercial vehicles. Carolina's Executive Limo Line holds Class-C Charter & Class-C Bus Charter Certificates with the ORS for intrastate livery and bus operation in the State of South Carolina. We're also fully licensed and permitted for pickups at Charleston International Airport, with full access to Wild Dunes Resort and Kiawah Island Resort.

 

Trust the vehicles you're riding in. All Carolina's Executive Limo Line vehicles are modern, so mechanical failure is extremely rare. Our $1.0 million in insurance coverage is well over the State of SC minimum requirements, and should reassure all of our clients that the only thing more important than private reliable transportation is SAFE transportation.
