Mears car service - good value?

I am about to book a return trip with Mears, for a lux. sedan with meet and greet from Orlando Int. a/port to Quality Suites Maingate East. The quote is $130USD. The shuttle serice quote is $16pp. (So I'm guessing that this is a good deal.) Can anyone give me first hand recomendation?
thanks
oh, and if anyone know of a similar deal in NYC I would love to hear about it.

I'm not sure I understand this question. You have a luxury van for 130 one way vs 16 from the hotel? How many people and what is the occasion? We recently took a Mears van (no frills) to a hotel in Kissimmee for 2 people at less than a cab would be. It was quite prompt and easy as well as comfortable. I have used Mears several times in the area and have been pleased. Unless you have someone to spoil, pamper or impress, why spend the extra?

sorry if I didnt explain clearly. the shuttle service is $16pp each way. There are 4 of us. My maths makes that $128. So I thought for $130 I could use the meet and greet.

Aussie, okay, I get it! If you want to save even more, go for standard service. However, that's not a bad deal. You won't have to wait for the shuttle to arrive and go looking for it which can get pretty hairy if there are cruise people down there. Mears does a fine job. Have fun!

Don't know where you're landing in NYC - but any of the car services will send a sedan to any of the airports for substantially less than that. Try Carmel of Tel Aviv.
