Finding a reliable taxi service in your local area can be challenging. There's so many to choose from. Googling a taxi company can produce hundreds of results. However, if you're not from the area you may not be any wiser, as it's not always clear which are the reliable companies who don't charge too much.
The best way to find a reputable, reliable taxi firm is to have a look at their website and their reviews on the web. Firstly, have a look at their website. Make sure the taxi service has the relevant credentials including insurance and any local council permits to operate. See that the services offered cover what you need. Do you need to be able to pay by card or need special assistance for a disability. Secondly, find a couple of taxi firms that offer the services you require and Google them to find reviews and testimonials. Often sites like Yell, or Google My Business have reviews from customers. It's also worth checking for reviews on a social media page.
The tips above should help in finding a reliable taxi service to take you on your journey!
