NORTHUMBERLAND TAXI firm Phoenix Cars know a thing or two about what it takes to run a successful cab company.
The 300 driver fleet firm was founded in 1990 by Hugh Hurst and recently won Gold in the 2014 Professional Driver QSI Award for Best Private Hire Operator.
Phoenix specialise in sustainability and operate the largest fleet of electric private hire vehicles in Britain.
Alex Hurst, son of Hugh, commenting on why he bought nine Auris Touring’s from Cab Direct said: “What drew me to the car initially was the cost and size of the vehicle. A combination which makes for the perfect taxi.
“The incredible boot space is also really helpful for airport and train station runs.
“The Auris Touring is one of the most comfortable cars we have on the fleet and it’s one of our drivers’ favourite choices to drive.
“It’s definitely our taxi of choice. In terms of value for money, there’s no better option.”
TAXI TRADE EXCLUSIVE SAVINGS
Cab Direct has teamed up with Toyota to offer drivers the chance to buy the money saving estate with over £5,000 off the list price. All you have to do is provide proof of licence.
Alex added: “I’d recommend the Auris Touring without hesitation. I’d equally recommend Cab Direct. They can’t be beaten on price for any Toyota Hybrid model and the service has always been fantastic.”
