Why sunshine coast private transfers?

There are many reasons you should choose Sunshine Coast Private Transfers. For instance, ours is a family run business.

In addition, our fleet is the largest private transfer fleet servicing the Sunshine Coast Airport.

Above all, we own our fleet of vehicles and hire professional drivers (locally) to drive them  

 

cleanLINESS matterS

Firstly, we (the owners of our fleet) clean and detail our vehicles (assets) daily, setting a benchmark for cleanliness prior to handing vehicles to drivers before each shift.

Secondly, our vehicles are fitted with cleaning kits including 18 volt (handheld) vacuum cleaners. Drivers are expected to vacuum the floors of their vehicle after every drop-off.

By comparison, if you travel in a vehicle not cleaned by its owner, who is not also a driver, without a vacuum cleaner onboard, it’s more than likely you will end up traveling in another passengers mess. 

size matters

To begin with, managing a fleet of 11 vehicles improves our travel time reliability while reducing logistics and scheduling costs.

Ordinarily, a single vehicle operator is booked out for half a day when accepting a single Brisbane Airport Private Transfer to NoosaIt takes 4 hours, if no delays, driving to Brisbane from Noosa to pick up, then back again. 

Consequently, should that flight be delayed, or traffic is congested, if you had pre-booked the following transfer with that operator, what becomes of your pickup?

If booking through us, our fleet manager would know your scheduled driver won’t get back in time, because he tracks and monitors our fleet via satellite.

More importantly, our drivers are left to concentrate on the road while our fleet manager reroutes another car to pick you up.

YOU MATTER

Resort managers put their reputations on the line when recommending a driving service. Essentially, larger resorts only deal with a fleet capable of guaranteeing supply. 

Sunshine Coast Private Transfers is operated by us, Simon & Tamara, 30-year residents of Noosa and fierce guardians of our local brand. 

Underpinned by a half-million dollar investment in our business you can rest assured the buck stops with us when using our service.

To this end, Sunshine Coast Private Transfers offer every client the opportunity to complete a digital feedback form after their transfer. In other words, client feedback is what holds our team to account.

Which means your opinion matters.

We are continually leveraging client feedback to improve our service levels.

1. Click “Start” for a 10% discount to be waiting for you in the the cart, as you checkout

What if my flight is delayed?
We track your flight number to ensure our driver is there to meet you at the terminal upon your arrival if the flight is no later than 30 minutes

If your flight is later than 30 minutes your driver may have to leave to fulfill their next transfer

If your driver cannot wait management rework our roster for that day to get our next available driver to pick you up after your plane does land

Sunshine Coast Private Transfers has 7 eight seat vehicles so can usually get another driver to you within 45 minutes of your actual landing time if delayed

  • 45 minutes after your late plane lands is more like 20 minutes by the time you alight and collect your luggage

One of the advantages of booking via bigger operators is that we have the driver network to deal with contingencies like this that occur daily

What if my flight is cancelled?
Don’t worry! Just let us know as soon as you can and we will have another driver at the airport to pick you up when you finally land
