Major contract is a vote of confidence

Nov 3, 2020

The Taxi Shop recently secured a significant order to supply and convert 30 brand new vehicles for a council contractor. Each week for the next seven months a finished vehicle will be introduced to a new fleet comprising 26 Ford Transit 15-seater and four 17-seaters, specially adapted to undertake the transport of wheelchair passengers.   

30 vehicles over seven months

Each new vehicle will be fully wheelchair accessible comprising of an in-board hydraulic tail lift, tracking system, quick release seats and wheelchair anchorages to comply with the relevant local authority requirements. Our customer chose The Taxi Shop based on a consistent quality of the workmanship demonstrated over the two years since we took conversions in-house.

Expert conversions done in-house

Josh Rhynas, Sales Director at The Taxi Shop is overseeing the contract:

“This is a massive vote of confidence from a significant taxi firm. We listened carefully to what they wanted and delivered a specification that exceeded expectations. At our facilities the client met Ash Munford who leads the conversions and coachwork here as well as myself and we all hit it off from the start. It is all part of building a strong relationship which we have done and setting trust, reliability and confidence in stone as the foundations of this relationship.” 

Overall winners in a competitive field

The vehicles, adapted for children and adults with disabilities, will also feature bespoke seat covers and our exclusive composite flooring that reduces road noise and maintains an even temperature through the seasons. It all adds up to a knockout package and that’s why the customer chose The Taxi Shop over alternative suppliers.

Customers, partners, suppliers and friends can be confident we will be supplying excellent vehicles and services for years to come.”

While the industry has faced difficulties The Taxi Shop has consistently supported its customers. The fact that we are surviving and thriving is testament to the loyalty and the dedication of a brilliant team.
