Our Vehicles

There is no doubt we possess the most eye catching fleet of vehicles on the south coast, some might say that our theme is ‘over the top’, but you cannot deny that our cars are easy to spot, especially at night. The green theme helps to provide a sense of reassurance and safety; knowing you're placed in good hands. Bilking, the numbers of unlicensed taxis and unlicensed drivers are on the decline, unfortunately, they still exist; our customers know exactly what car to expect when they book a ride.

Our Drivers

At present we have no corporate uniform; all our drivers are expected to concur with our dress code. It stipulates that they wear smart trousers and a collared shirt. Private Hire/Hackney badges should be displayed at all times.

Our foundation is built upon customer satisfaction, which, is derived from the drivers having good communication skills, excellent presentation and to simply provide a better than satisfactory service.

The Southampton City Council prior to issuing a license ensures all the drivers abide to their strict protocol. The make-up is as follows; drivers are aged over 21, have held a drivers licence for over two years, pass a basic skills assessment, pass a driving skills assessment, consent to an enhanced criminal record disclosure, consent to a driving history check from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, provide a medical report from the applicant’s own medical practitioner certifying that they are fit to a Group 2 standard in accordance with the current DVLA medical standards of fitness to drive and finally pass the council’s test of their knowledge of the topography of the city and the responsibilities of a licensed driver.

Our reputation is built on these principles; this is why we insist on regular driver meetings which include instructions and advice on disability awareness, client expectations, working practise, public relations and disciplinary procedures.
