Matt and Chris got into the Limo Transportation business in an unexpected way. Matt ended up being the high bidder for a limousine on ebay when he was considering the possibilities of starting a limo service, but didn’t expect his low bid to actually win! The idea germinated when customers routinely asked to use a High Mountain Expeditions rafting buses for vehicle transportation to and from events. The brothers thought guests would enjoy a really nice fleet of vehicles, quite a bit more! High Mountain Expeditions is a another of the Leonard family’s popular businesses, along with Sugar Creek Gem Mine and Ski Country Sports shops.
It all turned out to be a great idea, as the High Country region is a really popular location for weddings, family reunions, special events (Appalachian State University is minutes away in Boone) and is within easy driving distance to Asheville and Winston-Salem, NC.
Since that fortuitous eBay trial event, the twin brothers have added significantly to their fleet. They sold that first limo and replaced it with two high end executive coaches, a beautiful trolley bus, a 1974 Cadillac Convertible, Suburban and Executive Van. See the whole fleet here.
