About Our Company
In the 1970s, while working at the Hyatt Regency Phoenix as a head valet and service attendant, Gene Pierpoint noticed the area was fast becoming a primary destination for corporate, political, entertainment, and professional sports groups. He quickly realized there was a growing need for an upscale transportation service in Phoenix that was not being addressed by the standard taxi services available at the time. He knew that a pivotal change was necessary, and that executive sedans and limousines were the obvious choice to serve these needs.
So in 1979, Arizona Limousines, Inc. was established, and for the first time ever in the Valley of the Sun, luxury executive transportation service became available to the greater Phoenix-Scottsdale area. Having founded the first limousine service in Arizona, Gene Pierpoint went on to found the Arizona Livery Association (now known as the Arizona Limousine Association) and serve as the ALA Director and President for many years. He also went on to serve on the board of the National Limousine Association for multiple terms. Throughout his tenures, he initiated strict standards and requirements regarding vehicle maintenance, quality, safety, and service to be provided by transportation companies across both the state and the country. These standards, which continue to this day, are the backbone of the Arizona limousine industry.
Today, Arizona Limousines, Inc. is a nationally recognized leader in the industry, while still proudly owned and operated by the Pierpoint family. We continue our time-honored tradition, complete dedication to Arizona luxury transportation service, because it’s what we do best.
Our over 35 years of experience includes serving a wide-ranging clientele from individuals and small businesses, to major corporations, top executives, professional sports teams, and entertainment industry veterans. We have been honored to serve on the Super Bowl transportation committee as well as being chosen as the official transportation provider for the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. We even provide large group tours to beautiful Arizona landmarks such as the Grand Canyon and Sedona Red Rocks. Rest assured, no matter how big or small, you can count on us for your Arizona ground transportation needs.
In addition, our own hiring practice is an extremely selective one. We require all of our staff to have a minimum of three years of experience in the transportation, tourism, hospitality, and service sector. We understand that professional chauffeurs should be more than just experienced drivers, they should be trained customer service representatives. Consequently, Arizona Limousines is staffed by an array of highly trained professionals with over 105 years of combined experience in the industry. Of course all our chauffeurs must also pass a thorough background check and complete drug testing. Abiding by these strict work requirements helps us to ensure that our staff will always be well equipped to meet our clients high standards and expectations, and can handle your ground transportation needs in a prompt, courteous, and professional manner. We appreciate that our clients have come to expect nothing less than the best from us — world-class signature luxury transportation service.
