Who are we?

As Branch Manager at The Taxi Centre, I’d like to spell out who we are, what makes us different and why you should consider us when buying your new taxi.

26 years ago, it was common for people to struggle with pronouncing its name, but today everybody knows and loves the Octavia. I feel great pride in being able to say that we were there at the very beginning. Helping the Octavia become the most successful taxi/private hire vehicle of the last two decades.

The Taxi Centre has since grown from a single model and brand to offering many vehicles from a wide range of manufacturers. We offer saloons, hatchbacks, SUVs, estates, people carriers and have recently taken on the iconic London Black taxi too. Not being tied to a particular manufacturer enables us to search out the best offers for our customers regardless of the badge on the bonnet.

We feel this is one area that sets us apart from a typical car dealership. We sell the taxis we believe offer the right combinations of size, reliability, efficiency, and price to get the job done. Not because we must, but because we want to.

What makes us a reliable company to buy your taxi from?

We understand that many taxi and private hire drivers don’t enjoy dealing with ‘car salesmen.’ That is why we recruit almost exclusively from outside the car industry. Another area where we feel we are different is in our staff retention, where several members of the team have been in their positions for over 20 years. The amount of knowledge they’ve built up in that time is immeasurable. A depth of industry knowledge that is rarely found elsewhere.

Another area where we do things differently is in stock management. We always aim to have hundreds of cars available for immediate delivery, as we understand that drivers can be out of work until their new car arrives. With manufacturers now often quoting 6-18 months for new deliveries, this is where our experience comes to the fore. We have to anticipate what cars our customers will want to buy before they even know themselves. We try to have the model and colour they want sitting in stock ready for when they need it.

So why should someone choose us to supply their new taxi?

If you want the best car, price, availability and most importantly advice, then please consider The Taxi Centre. But don’t just take my word for it. The vast majority of our customers have either purchased from us before or know someone who has. We’ve supplied cars to every corner of the UK, so there will be drivers in your town or company who already have cars from us. Speak with them and ask about their experience. I am confident you will like what they have to say.

When you’re ready, all that’s left to do is start looking for your perfect new taxi. We look forward to helping you along the way.
