Christchurch driver Rodger Milton has been driving taxis for over forty years and believes that you’d be hard pushed to find a better vehicle for the job than the Mercedes-Benz M8 from Cab Direct.
“My previous vehicle was also a Mercedes but it came from another company and wasn’t in the same league as the M8, ” says Rodger.
“For instance, the ExtraSlide seat gives me plenty of room for wheelchair passengers whereas before loading and unloading was difficult,” he explains.
Having read about the M8 in the taxi press he decided to contact Cab Direct and ask for his local area sales manager to meet him for a test drive.
“The M8 is perfect for the job as we have a very high percentage of elderly people down here in Christchurch,” continues Rodger.
“The excellent accessibility for wheelchairs makes it very popular and I now have regular customers who insist on being picked up by the M8.”
Rodger continues: “The M8 is an excellent vehicle for every job imaginable, whether it’s an airport run or a trip to the local supermarket. The ExtraSlide rear seat means I can carry 6 or 7 passengers with luggage”.
General Manager of Sales, Peter Facenna, commented, We’re delighted that Rodger chose to purchase his new vehicle from Cab Direct. The M8 has proved extremely popular throughout the UK since we launched it last year.
“Both drivers and passengers alike have been extremely impressed.”
