Stephen Pedersen Local Events Leave a Comment

Food, friends, wine – sounds like a great weekend, right? Featuring food from Dante’s Fire in Tucson, live music, and 16 local wineries, the Willcox Wine Country Festival is held every Spring and Fall about an hour east of Tucson in Willcox, AZ. Thousands flock to historic Railroad Park for this biannual event, recognized by Fodor’s Travel as one of the 10 best wine festivals in North America. In addition to the wine tastings, local artists, crafts, and food are all featured, and entrance into the event is free. Tasting tickets can be purchased at the gate or on online as can seats at the Benefit Wine Dinner and Reception, the proceeds of which go to benefit the Northern Cochise Community Hospital. We at Diamond Transportation would like to encourage responsibility in all the revelers and suggest that you secure lodging or safe travel arrangements before you find that perhaps you’ve enjoyed all the wonderful Arizona wine a bit too much to drive home. And if you’re looking to make this incredible event even more spectacular, then we’d love to make that happen. Our executive transit vans can bring you and 13 of your friends to the event in style and get you home safely, and our minicoaches are available if you are brining a small army of wine enthusiasts. What’s that? You don’t want to share, and you’re going alone? Well, we have several luxury sedans you can choose from. They all have black leather interiors to sink into and rest after a long day of wine and music, sun shades for comfort and privacy, and best of all, if you do decide to bring someone else with you, they all seat up to three passengers and have plenty of room for your wine festival impulse purchases. Diamond Transportation’s professionally-chauffeured luxury car service could be just what you need to turn a fun night at the Willcox Wine Country Festival into one worthy of a story you can one day bore your grandkids with or use to fill everyone at work with dark, bitter jealousy.

At Diamond Transportation, maintaining honest and equitable relations with the people and businesses of our community is not just a nice goal, but rather it is an indispensable ideal. Integrity is first and foremost our watchword, and it is the true metric by which we measure our prosperity. Yes, as a business, it is literally our job to turn a profit, but there are many ways to do that, and we choose to do so in a way that rewards and enriches you, our customers, coworkers, and community. We owe everything to you, and it is our responsibility and pleasure to treat you as such. That is why we are so honored to announce that we are finalists for the 2018 Better Business Bureau Southern Arizona Torch Award for Ethics. This award is given out once a year to the business that best demonstrates their dedication to ethical business practices, including truthful advertising, honest dealing with their customers, vendors, and neighborhoods, and a presence that inspires others to do the same. It is both uplifting and humbling to be considered for this award, and we would be so very happy if you would join us in this celebration. All finalists will be recognized, and winners will be announced at a dinner and ceremony held at Casino del Sol on Friday, April 20, 2018. The reception begins at 5:30 and dinner starts at 6:30.

  Every year Luxury Coach & Transportation Magazine gives out six awards for Operator of the Year, one for each of the designated categories: 1-10 fleet vehicles, 11-30 fleet vehicles, 31-50 fleet vehicles, 51+ fleet vehicles, motorcoach, and global/international. This year Diamond Transportation is an Operator of the Year finalist for the 11-30 fleet vehicles category, and we couldn’t be prouder. Finalists are rated on their commitment to providing excellent and memorable service to their customers, on maintaining an impeccable fleet of vehicles, outfitted with the latest technologies, on their unimpeachable training and safety standards, on their media and marketing savvy, and on their involvement with the community and the industry. Our amazing staff works extremely hard to ensure every client is treated like visiting royalty and that their experience with Diamond Transportation is as safe and efficient as it is luxuriously comfortable. Succeeding in our mission, hearing the delighted reviews our clients, and receiving their enthusiastic promises to return to us is a great reward in and of itself, but for our work to be acknowledged by our peers and industry, to be recognized by LCT for our efforts, is truly an honor. Win or lose, we know that going forward we have responsibilities as representatives of the executive car service community here in Tucson and around the globe. The confidence shown us by industry leaders honors us, but it also tasks us with maintaining the standards that won us that recognition in the first place. This only further invigorates us to exceed the expectations of our clients, of our affiliate partners, and of ourselves.

Airport Transportation Service for the Flight-Weary Traveler

Stephen Pedersen Airport Car Service Leave a Comment

Flying can be a nightmare, a packed, painful nightmare. The air is stuffy, almost claustrophobic, immediately reminding you that you’re about to leave the earth in a long flying coffin, and that if it doesn’t come back down the right way, you aren’t going to need a regular one. The cabin is pressurized for your comfort, or so the flight attendant says, but it feels more like it’s pressurized as an experimental interrogation technique, testing the compression resistance of your ear drums. Leg room is cramped at best, elbow room is nonexistent, the seats hardly recline, and if you do put them back, you run the risk of catching a pair of knees, a virus-fueled cough, or at least an angry grunt from the person behind you. Sleep is next to impossible, and the moment you do finally drift off, turbulence hits and you’re jolted awake, heart racing but swelling with pride because you feel as though you just survived your first near-death experience. Finally, you touch down on the tarmac twenty minutes late (of course), and you’re hit with conflicting desires to stand up, lie down, do some cardio, sleep, get to work, and hit the bar. But before anything else you take a deep breath of clean, uncirculated air. Then it hits you. You’re still at the airport. You’re hoping, pleading that your airport transportation service won’t be as painful as the flight. Relax. You booked with Diamond Transportation. Like a timely and valiant knight on a gleaming black steed (or inside one in this case), your professional chauffeur will whisk you away from the horrors of air travel and bring you to your destination in the style and comfort that you are owed. Luxuriously comfortable seats with ample legroom that you can recline in without incurring the wrath of someone behind you? Check. Climate controls that obey only your commands? Check. Wifi access so you can entertain yourself, get a jump-start on work, or tell everyone in your social circles how awesome Diamond Transportation is? Check. Safe, courteous, prompt service that will make you wish flying cars were real, so your chauffeur could just take you the entire way across the country next time? Check. Televisions, DVD players, room for a dozen friends, and a bar? Well, that depends on the vehicle. You can always inquire with our dispatch for details, but the moral of this story is that while there is little to be done about the annoyances of air travel, Diamond Transportation’s airport transportation service can help you recover from it. Reserve your airport car service or find other ways we can make your day better.
