Ian Morrow from Basildon in Essex has recently made the move to hackney after 20 years working as a private hire driver. He explains his decision to change: “The council here are crying out for wheelchair accessible cabs. I was looking for more freedom and relished the opportunity of becoming an owner driver after 20 years of paying circuits.”
Having taken the decision to change, there was only one cab Ian was interested in – the Peugeot E7 from Cab Direct. He comments: “You only have to look around the rank here to see who the supplier of choice is. 90% of vehicles in the area are from Cab Direct and the drivers are only too happy to recommend the E7.”
Bags of Space
One of the main plus points for Ian is the amount of space in the E7. Today’s passengers often come with plenty of luggage and being able to accommodate this is crucial for the modern day driver. Ian comments: “The space in the E7 is phenomenal. There’s huge loading capacity. Whether for suitcases or prams, there’s never a problem with the E7.”
Plus, with E7’s celebrated EasySlide™ seat, you have the versatility to adapt your cab to suit every fare, either affording your passengers loads of room in the rear cabin or making way for masses of luggage. And if that’s not enough, with the option of the E7 plus, the long wheelbase model offering even greater room, whatever the job, space will never be an issue.
Access for All
Even lighter, even quicker and even easier to use, both drivers and wheelchair passengers alike are enjoying the benefits of the E7’s under-floor pull out ramp. Ian says: “I do a lot of wheelchair work and it’s a breeze. The ramp is convenient and quick and easy to use – customers love not having to wait.”
Nothing but Positives
Ian continues in his praise: “I can’t fault the E7. It’s an excellent drive and it looks the part too. I opted for the top spec model and the extras are great. Plus, it’s good on fuel too.”
With three fantastic models to choose from, each built with the professional driver in mind, E7 promises you the ultimate in modern day cabs.
