The passion for driving began when founding owner Brian Sayles was a young man growing up in Vallejo, where he watched his father build a business in the city made famous for being the home of the once bustling Mare Island Naval Shipyard. The elder Mr. Sayles started a tow truck company, and young Brian would often go with him on runs; truth be told, he more or less grew up on the road working alongside his father. Brian says, “Growing up in Vallejo, gave me the heart and desire to achieve… without Vallejo, I wouldn’t be here!”
Understandably, the time he spent with his father was a priceless learning experience and at times fun. But, it was also enlightening for him too as he realized how much he/they enjoyed driving around together in an area they’d both come to know and love…the bonus came in helping people. In short, this was the beginning of Brian’s realization of two of his greatest assets…the first being his love of the road, the second, his love of people.
Immediately following his graduation from high school, Brian joined the Army. While in the service, he became disciplined and structured and started thinking about his future once he was discharged. He knew he wanted the freedom of being on the road rather than a regular 9 to 5 job! And…he had a serious inkling about how he was going to make it all come together and work for him!
All journeys begin with the first step… and that first step starts when you put your hopes, dreams and aspirations into motion as you realize your goals for the future are attainable. Brian’s goal was to start a business of driving passengers for a living and he also knew the exact areas to make it all come together! That said, it came as no surprise to his family and friends that the first vehicle he bought following his discharge from the service, was a limousine! And the area he chose to work was in the spectacular Napa and Sonoma valley wine country.
Next to his family, Brian is happiest when he’s out on the road safely navigating new found friends around the countryside, thus avoiding disasters that have befallen countless others because they chose to drink and drive. Another notable asset of Brian’s is that he never seems to meet a stranger…once the introductions are over, you feel as though you’ve known him your entire life, and that’s usually when the fun begins!
