Philadelphia Shuttle Service Review

I recently was a groomsman in my cousin’s wedding in California. We had our whole family going out West for the trip, so we decided to take a local Philadelphia shuttle to and from the airport. I was very impressed with the service, so I thought I’d like to do a little review of the company that we used.

The company we decided to use was Tropiano, and I’ll basically lay out the story with them from square one. So here it goes. Being that we had 11 people going from Philadelphia to San Jose, we decided it would be a much better idea if we got a local Philadelphia shuttle service to take us to and from the airport. We figured it would be a much better alternative to taking 2 or 3 cars, leaving them in the parking lot, and paying for each day the cars remained there!

Now at first we weren’t sure of which shuttle service we wanted to use, but we heard very good things about Tropiano, so we decided to try them out. The cool thing was that they could fit all 11 of us and our luggage into one big van.

The day we left for our trip, the van driver came to our door and helped all of us with our luggage, which was a big plus. Also, he was very friendly and personable, and he was on time! That is a key element to look for when deciding on a Philadelphia shuttle service company, because if they are not on time, you will miss your flight!

When we got to the airport, the van driver then helped us unload and wished us a happy trip. Very good experience, very professional, yet very down to earth.

Next was out return trip. Our van driver for the trip home from the airport 2 weeks later was just as nice and personable as the first one. He helped us with our bags, didn’t drive like a maniac, and he was on time! Turns out we even had some mutual friends.

If you’re looking for a good Philadelphia shuttle service, you should definitely check out Tropiano.

Keep in mind, though, that they are not the end-all & be-all of shuttle services here in Philly. There are many more, so choose which one will suit your needs best! Hope this helps!

P.S. Just in case you were wondering, California was awesome!

Philadelphia Apartment Review

I’ve recently been doing a lot of looking for a Philadelphia apartment, since I’m over 2 years out of college and just itching to get out of my parents’ house! I live in the suburbs right now, but have finally found a place in the city. So in this post, I’d like to share with you my experiences while searching for the right Philadelphia apartment.

It obviously started with my strong desire to get out of my parents’ house. It was really weird going from living on my own throughout college for 4 years and having complete freedom, to living back at home and still having a curfew. I could only take so much of that, and I was making a good amount of money at my job and had a lot saved, so I started looking everywhere I could for a Philadelphia apartment – online, the Apartment Guide, friends and family. I finally found the place of dreams right on Craigslist. It’s a nice one-bedroom, one-bath dwelling right in the Old City section of town.

One thing I would definitely recommend when looking for a place in the city is to make sure you check the place out in person before committing to it. If I would’ve signed a lease to some of the places that I saw, I would be totally screwed right now and living in basically, well, trash.

Another recommendation I would make is that you find a Philadelphia apartment that you can actually afford. Don’t waste your time looking for a place that you can’t afford. I spent a lot of my time looking at some upscale apartments, knowing that I wouldn’t be able to afford them. Still I looked at those places anyway, but ended up wasting a lot of time when I could’ve been looking for places that I would actually be able to pay for.

And PLEASE don’t actually sign the lease for an apartment that you can’t afford, because then you will probably default on your rent payments and end up living back at home with your parents anyway.

I will say, though, that the one major benefit of living at home with your parents is that you can save a ton of money in rent. The major drawback, though, is that you will sacrifice that savings with loss of privacy.

I hope some of these experiences that I’ve shared will help you in your search for the best Philadelphia apartment for your needs.
