Mr. Wright, words cannot possibly express the joy, gratitude, and benefit your organization provides my seniors and staff every time we have utilized your charter service . The humanitarian efforts of your organization through your customer service and your impeccable business practices is why Ecumenical  would never consider doing business with any other bus chartering service. The City of Kalamazoo is truly blessed to have your business in this community. B&W Charter will be blessed with continued success.

Hello!

I just wanted to thank you and everyone at B & W Charters for the amazing service we were lucky to have last night! As the event planner I was worried the buses would be late due to the events that they were at before ours were going to cut so close. To my happy surprise, they were 15 minutes early! Everyone was at my event 15 before I was expecting them to, and I was absolutely thrilled! The bus drivers were so polite and welcoming and the buses themselves were clean and very comfortable!

This is honestly the best service we’ve had from a transportation company in a long, long time. You guys made our event run perfectly and smoothly! Thank you so much for working with me last minute on the time change. It definitely worked out for the best!

I am definitely excited to use your company’s services again, because it was a pleasure having you guys!

Thank you so much!

Hi Carolyn,

I hope you are doing well. Thank you for assisting me with the logistics of the Chicago trip that was held on Saturday, November 21. On behalf of the Lee Honors College,  I want to thank Sheldon, the charter bus driver, on his impeccable customer service that he provided.  I was not able to catch his last name but I really want to commend him for going above and beyond of his expected duty.

I look forward to working with your team next year!

Best,

Hi Christine:
I just wanted to share with you that our ladies group from Michigan Center Bible Church had a wonderful trip on Saturday, November 7 with driver, Jimmy Jackson. I can’t thank you enough for your patience as this was our first time doing a trip like this and it all just went great. Jimmy was wonderful with us and very accommodating to time schedule with taking us to Birch Run in the snow/rain and getting us from there to Bronner’s and Zehnder’s for dinner.

Please give this information to the appropriate personnel as it just went really well and we appreciated all of his efforts and yours as well on the communication part of scheduling the trip.

I will be recommending your company and hope to use you again in the future.

Blessings,

Donna T.

Just wanted to say a big thanks! Our trip was the best one we have had yet to beerfest. Our driver was amazing, he dropped us off right at the entrance was right there when we got out. Say thanks again to him for us!

Hope to see you again next year for the event,

Hi Deb,

Our driver, Dwayne, did an excellent job and we enjoyed him.  He was professional, courteous and a great driver.  He has johnny on the spot for all stops and pick ups and we look forward to doing this again next year.

On another note, I misplaced my glasses that night.  I have gone to all of our stops and have been unable to find them.  I called B & W today and talked to a lady who was in today doing extra work and she said she would ask the cleaners if they happened to find a pair of glasses on the bus.  I sat in the back row on the drivers side.

If the cleaners happen to find my glasses would you please let me know.  I would be so grateful – I need them to drive or see at a distance and am lost without them.  I hate to order a new pair ($$$) without checking all possibilities first.

Thanks so much for your hard work to put this together for us last minute.  B & W has a quality staff!!

Thanks again,

Kim T.

Dear BW charters,
My husband as already written you about the driver, Zach  that we had on Friday August 21 wedding at the Blue Dress Barn. I felt I also wanted to write a letter about Zach. I would give him high marks all around, he was funny, made all us feel comfortable, it was a good feeling that he was enjoying and take it serious as our driver.  Before we left the Hilton Garden the bus had a lot of guess that boarded the bus,  Zach went into the hotel to make sure that he was not going to leave guest behind.  This was also the case when some of the guest were ready to leave the wedding, around 10:00ish. Zach let us get on the bus, and he again went to back to the barn to make sure that he was not going to leave guest behind who was ready to go back. Zach was  accommodating to my girlfriend, the grooms mother, she needed to put something on the bus, and Zach was there for her. My girlfriend also made wonderful comments about him. Great job BW charters for hiring a wonderful driver.
Sincerely,
Judy W.

Just a note of thanks for the FANTASTIC service for our two group tours (with one bus!) from Marshall to Colon, Michigan during our Magic History Weekend on May 30th. The lady who handled the reservation was wonderful. The driver was prompt, courteous, and despite the rainy weather, got everyone to the multiple destinations on time. I heard many comments from attendees how pleased they were with the coach. Again, thank you for “doing what you said you’d do” (which shouldn’t be unusual, but seems to be more of a rarity in today’s business world.) Feel free to use this endorsement as you wish, and I will certainly use your company again for future charters.

I used them for my daughter’s transportation for prom festivities. They were so patient – I think I called them a couple dozen times to change the time! The kids said the driver was very polite and patient with them too. I definitely recommend them and I’ll use them in the future for my other daughter’s transportation needs!

This was the best experience ever. It was greatly appreciated. The driver was exceptional. I could not have dreamed of a better experience. We definitely will keep you in mind for future events. And will happily refer people to your organization.

One question though. I am missing a charging cable for my nook tablet. I suspect it fell out of my bag. I was just curious if someone may have found it.

We did enjoy our trip and overall we were very satisfied.  I was on Dave’s bus (I think it was Dave and not Dan?)  He did a great job – went with the flow and was very friendly and helpful to our guests that had a little trouble getting around.  I would give him a 10 for his driving and his manners.

The girls on the other bus did sound like their experience was not as good.  I think maybe the other driver was very inexperienced?  They didn’t say that he wasn’t nice – but he didn’t do the extra things that our driver did.   He couldn’t get into the places that we did so their people had to walk more – which isn’t all bad but was a little more dangerous on the icey drives and walk ways.  I was told he didn’t help with those that needed an extra hand and he maybe just wasn’t comfortable enough to go the extra mile like our driver did.

Just thought you should know – but we still had a great experience!

Thanks,

Gene,
Thank you so much for the follow up! Everything went great and the guests really enjoyed riding on the trolley. We only had the one hiccup but that was just confusion by the hotel telling the guests that they would be picked up at a different door. I had absolutely no complaints about the evening at all. Your driver seemed very helpful and professional. I will definitely recommend you in the future! Thank you for making the wedding run smoothly and I hope you enjoy your holidays!

From start to finish, it was a perfect trip.  Everyone did their jobs with professionalism, my students, parent chaperons, and especially, Dave, our bus driver.  Timing was spot on for each arrival and departure throughout the day.  The students and I have fond memories from this trip, and I look forward to employing B & W Charters for any future orchestra trips.

I used this vendor for their trolley in South Bend, Indiana. They were great! Very flexible with schedule changes and a great value compared to other vendors in the area. We attached a “Just Married” banner to the side and many guests commented on it. The driver was professional, courteous, safe & fun! I was in contact with the company months before the wedding through email and phone calls and they were quick to respond and professional. Overall, I would highly recommend B & W Charters. Thanks for making this aspect of my wedding stress free!

It is always a pleasure doing business with B & W Charters particularly because I want the business to flourish and prosper but because there are good people running the business.

It brought our girls to the function in a timely manner and I will assume returned them to their pickup stops in the same manner.  I have always been happy each time the company’s services have been used.  Keep up the good work.

Thank you so much for providing your transportation services for our students.  They were so excited.  When I got on the bus, I didn’t realize that I was suppose to bring my own DVD’s so I thought the kids were going to complain because they couldn’t watch a movie, but one of the students said “we don’t need to watch a movie, it’s the ambiance that we could watch one if we wanted too, that’s what’s important.”  I then just sat back and enjoyed the ride to Battle Creek.  The bus driver was very pleasant and helpful.  He wanted to make sure that we had everything that we needed.  I also want to thank you for making the last minute changes to our reservation as well.  We really do appreciate it.  I will tell all of my family and friends about our great experience and I look forward to booking with you again.

Dear Mr. Wright,

We had an excellent experience through B&W Charters.  Mr. Ken Hale, our driver was wonderful and made sure our needs were met and that we were comfortable.  He is a terrific representative of your company.

Also, thank you for upgrading our transportation from the 14 passenger van to the large coach with no additional charge.  Our children felt so special as they rode in style and were fascinated with the on board bathroom. You provided  many underserved Eastside youth with a trip they will never forget.

Thank you for all you do for Kalamazoo!

Hello Gene,
I wanted to take a moment to share our experience with B&W Charters this weekend, and specifically your driver, Kevin. Simply put, Kevin was outstanding! He is incredibly professional and takes a tremendous amount of pride in what he does. Getting us from point A to B ( and then to C and then back to A) safely and on-time is what we were hoping for. Kevin did all of that but also made it fun and relaxing for us. He connected with our team and also with our parents. He even came out to watch and cheer on our team during one of our games. Thank you for the terrific service you provided and most importantly for allowing us to have Kevin as our driver!

Thank you B & W staff for your great service both on the organizing side and trip execution! Our excursion was great fun, and we are looking forward to next year doing the same. Thanks especially for the price cut in buses. That was very helpful. When these trips involve a degree of risk, it’s hard to organize them knowing you can be put on the line…. you made it possible for me to do this and I appreciate you very much.
Thanks again,

Our trip with B&W was tremendous – our requested (and always will be) JD is a super driver, great personality and anIMG_20130815_074547_332 enjoyable person. I would like to add an extra note on his driving. When we were coming back from Soaring Eagle there was slow moving construction zone, all the cars seemed anxious and in a hurry – NOT JD he drove with safety – when we left the traffic zone the cars sped up were dodging in and out when a small car stopped dead in front of us to turn thru the median where they were not suppose to, no turn signal no notice traffic coming up on our right. What could have been a disaster was not thank to JD he handled it all very smoothly – sitting right behind him I saw and thought for sure an accident was going to occur. My hat goes off to JD you are lucky to have him. I do need a quote for a trip to Blue Chip by our group on … and JD as our driver..
Thank you

Hi Gene,
I just wanted to say that Anthony was amazing from the minute he arrived. He was patient, kind, considerate and did an awesome job helping me keep the group together and on time. I will definitely be using B & W Charters again.  And the bus was clean and comfortable – everyone had a great time.
Thanks so much!

B&W Charter Quotes,
Thank you for your inquiry regarding the transportation services of church’s bus recent trip.
It was a pleasure working with the staff at B&W Charters from the initial phone call to arrange the trip until we were delivered back to the church.  Pick up was timely as well as the drop off.  The driver was professional and very courteous.
The trip went well and a good time was had by all 55 of us! We plan to utilize B&W Charters again as well as let others know about your services.
Thank you, Mary C.

To whom it may concern;
I recently lead a school trip (May 8-11) in which B&W Charters drove myself and my students to Washington D.C. I have schled 4 senior trips in my 5 short years of teaching. Three of those trips were to D.C. The trip this year was by far my best experience. I believe a large part of that success is due to our bus driver, Dave. He was absolutely amazing! The kids adored him and have brought him up in conversation multiple times this week in class. He not only was great with my students but also navigated through D.C. so patiently. My previous D.C. drivers were not as patient and held a bad attitude the whole trip. (A different company.) Dave was so accommodating and helpful through the whole trip. I am very impressed with B&W Charters, especially Dave and will be sure to recommend them to the other school groups.

Sincerely,
Lacey R.

Mr. Wright:
I am writing to commend B & W Charters for absolute excellence during our recent stay in the Kalamazoo area.  AsHappy B&W Charters Customers youHappy B&W Charters Customers know, our Willow Run Flyers Girls Basketball team visited the Kalamazoo area from Thursday, February 21st thru Saturday, February 23rd, and, fortunate for us, we contracted with B & W Charters for ground transportation during our stay.  The coach we rode in was clean, spacious, modern, attractive and comfortable.  Our drivers, both Mr. Grayson and yourself, were safe, professional, knowledgeable and courteous.  We particularly appreciated the remarks you offered to our team after our final ride.  I have attached a photo taken of our team at dinner with Mr. Grayson.  Should we ever have occasion to stay in the Kalamazoo area again in the future, there is no question that we will attempt to utilize B & W Charters for our transportation needs.  I look forward to our next meeting.
Appreciatively,

Gene,
Despite the weather, the trip came off without a hitch.  Your driver, Rod,  was “awesome.”  He was pleasant and professional and always erred on the side of caution during some really challenging parts of the trip due to blizzard conditions, blowing snow and slippery roads. We have been using B & W Charters for each of our trips for the past 27 years and will continue to do so in the future.
Best,

Hi Gene,
I didn’t personally use the bus, but I heard no complaints from any of our guests. It was on time and got people where they needed to be, and that’s all we could have asked for! I’m not sure if you’re aware, but we had an emergency situation at the end of the night, and your driver was able to pick up our guests immediately, which was so appreciated during a time of such concern and stress. Thanks again for your help with our wedding. All of the vendors I worked with were so wonderful (including B & W), and I will be sure to post a review on Wedding Wire.
Many many thanks!

I appreciate the attention to detail you showed and your interest in getting our contract details just right and clear to both of us.

Dear Gene,
I had the pleasure of being on the bus driven by Shaun.  (hope I spelled that right)  He did an excellent job driving plus he was very personable.  On the way back we were running way ahead of time before our last stop so Shaun hearing of our dilema asked if we wanted him to slow down and take  an alternate route that would burn up some time.  We really appreciated him helping us work that out. I heard only nice comments about the other drivers.  I will certainly refer your company to next years class and others.  Thank you for helping us make it a safe and successful night for our kids.

He is wonderful….and we really request him for the three remaining trips yet this spring season.  Also, we appreciate the cleanliness of the bus. Every aspect of these two trips was successful.  We will be sending out our bids for the fall season and sincerely hope we are able to do business then.
