Anyone have the contact info for Tony Hinds? We used him about 2 years ago but i can't find his info. I remember finding a basic website for him but nothing is coming up when i search. I really hope he is still in business -- he was wonderful to deal with.

    He has a ten passenger vehicle and will provide up to 2 car seats at no additional cost
    Thank you. I don't need car seats. Is the 10 person vehicle a limo or van?

    We used him on our last trip where we were not eligible for the free tragical express.
    Great guy. Was on time for everything, no issues. Money well spent.

    About how far in advance do you need to book with Tony Hinds (we're looking at June)? And is the grocery stop an extra charge?

    I was surprised when some people mentioned that he will collect your bags at the baggage claim. Usually it seems we have to wait a bit for our bags when we get down to the baggage claim. Maybe things move quicker now?

    I'm hoping he doesn't book up too quickly. I won't know how many people are in my group until after our PIF date (there are about a dozen of us cruising but as far as where we are staying, I only know where four of us are staying and it's not at the same resort). I am hoping that he can possibly swing by two different resorts :D

    I usually book when I know my dates
    Some book months out.

    Do book at least one week out so he can set up his schedule with a driver

    He does accept last minute bookings if he has a driver that is free

    There is no charge for grocery or store stops
    He and his drivers allow a free 30 minute of your choice

    I usually use the Publix that is near the onsite hotels as I hit that grocery store and the liquor store in that complex
    I have a Publix that is 5 minutes from my house so know how the stores are set up for products I regularly buy.

    Some peeps like to use Walmart which he will do.
    It’s all up to the person booking the rides with Tony

    If Tony or one of his drivers are at the carousel when bags are put on, they will grab your luggage if you request it
    If you are delayed in reaching the bottom floor send him a text and describe your luggage so he can grab your items


    Otherwise, the drivers stand at the bottom of the escalators with a sign and your name on it
    First time users of his company usually are greeted at the bottom of the escalator

    When you make your reservation with Tony, you will be informed your driver will meet you at the bottom of the stairs

    I met Tony when he was a driver for Murray Hill company
    Think it was back around 1994-5

    He started his own transportation company soon after

    I have used other transportation companies over the years but have stayed with Tony once I started with him

    He is honest and a gem
    All of his drivers are dependable

    He will work with you
    Having a large group is not an issue for two different drop offs

    If you have 1o-12 in your group and a large number of luggage, let him know in advance

    He has a trailer he can use for excessive luggage
    He has a hitch to attach it to his passenger van

    You have to book this in advance if your group is large and have excessive luggage

    I can’t speak for him but have read in the threads he needs a few days notice if he needs to include the trailer

    He does port transportation and all of Florida
