River Shuttles Driving Team is an enthusiastic group of retired gentlemen.
They are responsible and committed. They take pride in their work, which
includes ensuring that our Checklist is completed for every customer vehicle
workhorse is a Chevrolet Venture seven passenger van. Michelle has the
flexibility to work with up to six drivers. This is usually adequate to
handle the number of vehicles we move during our busy days. The van is
an extended version with rear air conditioning. Even on the hottest days,
our drivers are ensured a comfortable and pleasant working environment.
back up is a Mazda B3000 five passenger truck. We can add up to four additional
drivers to our crew. We then have the capability to handle any day that
is very busy, such as the Children's Wish fundraising tournament in July.
truck is also equipped with roof racks and a towing package. Emergencies
that occasionally come our way can be effectively handled. For example,
we have had customer vehicles break down during transit. We simply switched
the customer's boat trailer from their truck to ours, ensuring that their
boat trailer was waiting for them when they came off the river. We then
drove them, and their boat, back to the city.
Members of our Driving Team complete our Checklist, prior to, and
during the delivery of each vehicle and boat trailer. They perform a "walk
around" before getting into your vehicle. This includes checking
your towing hitch, trailer winch and safety chains.
They secure, with plastic tie downs or duct tape, anything that might
be loose on your trailer. They check for low/flat tires all around, and
check your vehicle for windows or doors that may have been left open or
have also been trained to check your trailer wheel bearings. You will
be advised if, in our opinion, they may be in need of attention. Finally,
your dashboard is cleaned using a special 3M Detailing Cloth.
Our Customer Benefits
Increase your time on the river. You come to the Bow River to fish, not
