After we were stranded due to the blackout caused by a snow storm in Wytheville, VA Hooptieride came through and drove us to Blacksburg as our car was towed. Since the tow truck could only fit 2 people, I had to go separately with the kids. Ken came through in a big way. When I first called, the answering machine said they were closed due to snow storm and my hopes of leaving a blacked out Wytheville were dashed. However, instantly Ken (the owner) called me back and hooked up a ride. Sean showed up exactly 45 minutes later (as promised) and drove us to Blacksburg. He was extremely friendly and courteous. He made the ride enjoyable even though my baby screamed most of the way. Great service I would recommend to everyone!!! Thank you thank you Ken and Sean!!
I have known Hooptie Ride for years, as a reliable transportation service around Blacksburg, especially during football game weekends when traffic is a mess, and leaving the driving to others is a good idea. This weekend, I had the opportunity to try the Hooptie for something else. A large group of family and friends were in town to celebrate a couple of new 21 year olds. In what is becoming a tradition, we wanted to spend an afternoon visiting local wineries and microbreweries, yet do it in a safe and responsible way. How better than to use the Hooptie for this? Our driver, Ray met us for pick up right on time, confirmed our itinerary, helped load our group of 14 onto our van, off we went. Long story short, our day could not have been better. Ray was friendly, helpful, and most importantly, a safe driver. Safety is always important for a transportation service, and it became more of a challenge, as Ray got us to all of our stops during a late season snow storm. As anyone who has driven a van knows, they can feel the effects of any adverse weather and road conditions. We felt none of it. To sum up our experience, I have to say it was truly 5 Star service. To all the folks at Hooptie Ride, and especially to our driver, Ray, THANKS FOR A JOB WELL DONE!
