Newark, N.J. — Six companies hailing from South Jersey have recently joined the Limousine Association (LANJ) of New Jersey during the month of May. In recent months, LANJ has made a concentrated effort to appeal to operators from that region and address the issues faced by companies in South Jersey. The new members are:
- Borden Affordable Limousine Service of Woodbury
- ETA Worldwide of Berlin
- Joe’s Limousine Service of Mullica Hill
- Lacey Limousines of Waretown
- Riverfront Limousine Service of Penns Grove
- Thomas Limousine of Turnersville
“The association has noticed that the participation from the southern part of the state was weak,” said LANJ Director Pete Corelli of Lakeview Custom Coach. “So we decided to hold some mini-meetings down south to let them know that their concerns about the industry would be heard. They were appreciative of us making an effort to listen.” Corelli also stressed that the needs and problems are more likely to be met and solved if there is a single voice in the state, as all operators want to keep the industry strong and safe.
LANJ Director Bob Schiavo of Albert’s Limousine is pleased to see new members joining and taking advantage of the benefits of being part of the association. “We have just won a huge legislative battle to get sales tax removed from our services, and being a part of LANJ is good way to stay on top of TNC updates. The membership fee is a small price to pay for the rewards, especially our tax exemption on vehicles, parts, and labor.”
LANJ is also in the midst of planning their first golf outing, scheduled for Monday, September 18, at the Cherry Valley Country Club in Skillman, N.J. The association looks forward to making this an annual event that will attract operators from across the state.
