“I called ZBest in a panic with only two weeks notice before my event and they were amazing! The company’s sales team was awesome! Heather was with me each step of the way and she was very responsive, thorough and helpful. They followed up with me a few days before the event to confirm and make any changes. The limo arrived 5-10 minutes early and I can’t say enough great things about our driver, Rodney. He was fantastic and professional (always opened doors, was on point with the addresses and directions, and made sure we had enough ice/water, etc.)” — Jordan Kline
