Get to know Nexxa Transportation
Nexxa is where expectation meets exhilaration. We don’t rent you a vehicle, we provide an experience. We do this by ensuring every aspect of your interaction with us is efficient, thoughtful, professional, and unique. Our fleet is curated to provide thrills, fun, and above all memories.
As a business owner, what resource organizations have helped you along the way, and how?
My family and friends have been a tremendous help to me, their support and belief keep me going.
My first investor who helped with the acquisition of the last two vehicles in our fleet was a blessing. Without her, I do not think we would have been able to open the doors.
I was also able to get funding from Carolinas Small Business Development Fund, which was also critical. Business loans at this stage of a company can be risky and often larger lending institutions are hesitant. So the capital was well timed and needed.
My team. From PR to marketing, to operations, to business development. These are folks are tremendous at their jobs, and deliver at every step of the way.
How did Nexxa Transportation get started?
We originally started doing chauffeured services, with the growth of Uber and Lyft, we recognized that we could not be sustainable as the only means of doing business. So we shifted to the rental market as we saw there were no real options for individuals to rent the type of vehicles we offer in the Charlotte market. I was inspired by what the companies in Miami, Vegas, and New York were doing. But, I knew Charlotte is Charlotte, and you have to understand what works here. And for Charlotte, we are just a great city that is focused on relationships, having a great time and creating memories.
So, I wanted to have a company that put the customer’s experience first. This is important to us. Secondly, we want to ensure our customers see the value in their time spent with NEXXA.
