“David was absolutely fantastic. Kind soul, even though I was extremely exhausted and was barely functioning mentally for the rough past month I had. I was traveling to surprise my boyfriend for his birthday! He was so kind to help with my odd request of being dropped off a couple houses down to sneak to surprise my boyfriend (my boyfriend would be peering out the window otherwise)😂 he always was so kind to watch me get to the driveway for safety. He made my nerves calm, made me feel safe. And we connected on our lifetime history stories of careers in the medical field. Mr David, looked so classy and fancy, for a second I was like ooo where we going is it fun😂😂 very personable and made me so comfortable and enjoy my 30 minute drive. Thank you for being of assistance to get me there and let me surprise him! His face was priceless 😂 hats off to David! Thank you! Our conversation will be something I remember, made me feel at peace finally in a long time after this rough past month.”

“Excellent, professional and reliable service! Basic Black Transportation is the absoult best and I thank you for providing exceptional service for my wedding party!”

Kendra Brown ~ Google

“The customer service you receive with Jimmy and his company is by far the best I have seen. He breaks down every detail from beginning to end, personally calls you to discuss confirmations costs and timing and personally sent a picture of the exact vehicle that would be showing up to pick us up. The prices are the best in the area and he really makes you feel like you are the only customer he has and that is very hard to come by. From start to finish, FIVE STAR service from Basic Black. We will be returning as a repeat customer.”

“A fabulous drive both from and to the airport by Dernald on my recent business trip. He took the backroads to avoid highway traffic to airport and got me there even earlier. Wonderful conversation, clean sparkling car, overall the best service in Charleston. 🙌🙌”

Christa Johnson ~ Google

“Jimmy picked me up at the airport and was a pleasure to talk to throughout the ride. I was nervous about my visit home, and I was calmed by the conversation about our love for the same music (played at my request.) We traded artist names and favorite bass lines, and it was exactly what I needed in that moment. Seeing Jimmy again, on my trip back to the airport was, once more, exactly what I needed. My 'vacation' had been rough. As I got in the car to say my hello, my voice broke, and within seconds, I was in tears, unable to speak. In those moments, Jimmy comforted me. Truly. And as I regained composure, he let me tell him of my mother's rapidly failing health, finally releasing the sadness I'd spent my time hiding behind a son's smile. As with the previous ride, I asked for music. Again, we fell into a life-affirming conversation about the songs and artists that moved us. And, as before, I was able to smile, laugh, and hum along to the bass riffs. Thank you, Jimmy. It meant everything to me.”

Notthat Bob ~ Google

“Fantastic - Richard is amazing…thank you!”

Nichole Raftopoulos ~ Google

“I would recommend Basic Black Transportation and will use them the next time I visit Charleston. Jimmy was very knowledgeable, punctual and communicated well. I was able to ride in comfort and without stress on both trips. Jimmy also had some great recommendations for things to do and places to eat. I’m especially grateful that Jimmy was able to pick me up from the airport very late on short notice. He really went above and beyond to give great customer service.”

Victoria ~ Google

“What a wonderful experience from beginning to end! Making a reservation was easy and I received a prompt response when requesting a quote. Our driver Clarence arrived at my home approx. 10 minutes early for our airport departure and patiently waited for us to retrieve our luggage when we returned. He was very professional throughout both trips. We ended up extending our stay an extra day and they were able to accommodate us with moving my pick up date and time. I highly recommend this company for a quality/luxury experience.”

Michelle Tipton ~ Google

“Our family reunion needed transportation with a smaller group being picked up in 2 locations to get through the narrow streets and street corners in the city of Charleston. Basic Black Limousines know this city’s streets, and traffic patterns so well and they have their way of navigating it that beats the GPS system. The drivers are simply the best!! We had 3 and they were in sync, handled our handicap issues and were both patient and courteous. I recommended them to those who are also sensible, patient and courteous, and, I hope that they will only accept transporting those who are 😌, too.”
