The company will continue to operate as Charleston Style Limo until 2019 when it will join CLT’s SC Express brand as SC Express Charleston. Owner/Operators Jeff and Laura Canady also own and operate SC Express Chauffeured Transportation and SC Coach Charters & Tours.

This marks the fifth acquisition in the last eight years for the Canadys, as they continue to grow and expand their business in the Carolinas. Covering an area dubbed the Southern Triangle, their offices are located at their home base in Charlotte, along with Aiken/Augusta Office, and Charleston.

“With this latest acquisition, we are now able to move our fleet of over 80 vehicles anywhere in the Southern Triangle within a three-hour window, making us the largest chauffeured transportation service in the Carolinas,” reports Jeff Canady.
