Minimising environmental impact in all areas of life is still at the forefront of everyone’s minds. So too with a Northumberland based taxi company. Advanced Taxis of Hexham has just taken delivery of one of the new low emission Skoda Octavia vehicles. These amazing cars manage to pull the performance of a 1.9 TDi engine from a 1.6 unit. This means that CO2 and particulate emissions are far reduced from there larger brothers and therefore have a much healthier influence on the environment.

Speaking from their Hexham office one of Advanced Taxis’s managing partners comments, “These new vehicles from Skoda are an ideal addition to our fleet. We are very much aware of the impact that motor vehicles have on the environment, and especially vehicles which accrue vast annual mileages such as taxis. This is a perfect opportunity to be seen doing our bit for the environment and reducing our carbon footprint”.

A Northumberland based taxi company has laughed in the face of troubled economic times and built a business from nothing to become one of the areas major taxi companies.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Hexham, Northumberland, UK. 28th January, 2010

In the current economic climate it’s a refreshing sight to see local companies staying afloat. It’s even more refreshing to see a new company flourish. That’s exactly what Advanced Taxis of Hexham have accomplished. In February of 2008 when the country’s economics were going downhill faster than an Olympic tobogganing team, a small group of taxi drivers decided to start a new company, and so Advanced Taxis was born.

Disillusioned with the sale of the company that they were working for, seven of the drivers put their heads and resources together and formed their own company. Over the next two years this company has gone from strength to strength, flying in the face of adversity, to become one of the areas largest and busiest taxi companies.
Speaking from their Hexham office one of Advanced Taxis’s managing partners said, “It’s been a fantastic couple of years. We have built a company from scratch which can now boast a fleet of 4 seater and 7 seater vehicles, wheelchair accessible vehicles, a female driver and a wedding car service amongst others. It has been hard work, a steep learning curve too as none of us had been outside the comfort of an established business, but well worth it. We now have several local companies on our books, a global energy supplier, local charities and local authorities also regularly use our services and have accounts with us. Coupled with this is a loyal local user base that has been built up by providing a reliable, helpful and friendly service to young and old alike”.

The visiting tourists also enjoy the courteous service afforded by Advanced Taxis. With their vast local knowledge, the travelling visitor can be in no better hands than those of an Advanced Taxis driver. Tours of Hadrian’s Wall are regularly arranged and other areas have also been covered such as Weardale and Cumbria. For those walking or cycling the Hadrian’s Wall Path a baggage and bicycle transfer service are available.

Having grown from nothing and flourished through difficult financial times, the future can only be bright for Advanced Taxis.
