    Arrow New here from Alaska

    Hello everyone, I am excited to see such a great resource online with so many operators giving their support.

    I have kick started my business in 2007 after returning from an US Army deployment to Iraq in 2007 and funded my entire business ground up with my own cash I saved up. I have no over head costs except the insurance and normal business expenses. I first bought a 72" 2000 lincoln stretch and a 2002 Expedition SUV and a 2005 Lincoln TC L series sedan. I now have sold the 72" and got a 2000 120" Krystal White Lincoln TC.

    I would love to hear some of your experiances and opinions on what you think I need or should look into for being an great limo service operator in Alaska serving both the tourists and the locals.

    My website is

    I would like to hear your complaints and suggestions. I have always dreamed of being a limo business operator and I want to become successful for many years to come.

    I am only 25 so I want to start this off right.

    Thanks so much for your support!

    Welcome Steve. You should have kept the 72'. I have one and its a keeper. Good for the couples and night outs. Good luck up there in Snolaska.

    Welcome Alaska, you should be able to get a TV show easily, seems anything in Alaska is TV worthy.
    I want to die while asleep like my grandfather,
    not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car.
