This non-flashy industrial facade is typical for limousine companies that want a practical hideaway for basing luxury fleets in high volume areas. A Goff Transportation recently leased this building in Richmond, Va.
RICHMOND, Va. — A Goff Limousine and Bus Company recently leased a 2,100 square-foot warehouse and office in Virginia’s capital city, where it bases nine chauffeurs and bus captains and parks five to 10 vehicles based on workflow.
“In short, it’s a great central location with a non-descript industrial façade and lots of room for growth — a perfect place to house a high end fleet,” said Dan Goff, general manager of
A Goff Limousine and Bus Company.
The Charlottesville-based company has grown into more markets statewide, including the Washington, D.C. metro area while also expanding its motorcoach division in recent years.
With the new facility in Richmond, A. Goff can use it as a transfer and rendezvous point if it needs to bring in vehicles from other parts of the state to handle special events or demand. The building at 711 Hospital St. lies within a few miles of key Richmond-area destinations, such as the State Capitol and Virginia Commonwealth University.
A. Goff Transportation plans to base five to 10 chauffeured vehicles out of its new Richmond, Va. satellite facility.
A Goff has a fleet of 83 chauffeured vehicles and buses that service its primary region extending from Charlottesville in the western half of the state to Richmond, to Norfolk in the southeastern Virginia, and up the I-95 corridor to Washington, D.C. The company bases five Lincoln Town Car sedans and SUVs in the D.C. metro region. A Goff plans to add six minibuses and Van Terra transports to that market by Spring, with three motorcoaches to follow by June.
A Goff’s Richmond area and D.C. area markets are both about 90% affiliate-related and 10% corporate, Goff said.
A Goff hired veteran industry executive Barry Gross last year to manage its growth. The company is majority owned by Ana Regina Goff and run day-to-day by her husband, Dan Goff.
