2019 Taxi Roadshows get off to to a Flying Start

January 28, 2019

Cab Direct kick-started the 2019 events season with roadshows in Glasgow and Edinburgh earlier this month.

Record Numbers

Showcasing the new model ProCab™ and Mercedes-Benz M8™, an influx of local cabbies attended the roadshows held at the Glasgow HQ and Edinburgh branch.

Cab drivers had the opportunity to test-drive their preferred taxi partner while our taxi sales representatives were on hand to assist with all enquiries. A selection of sandwiches and refreshments were also provided at both shows, going down a treat with the cabbies. Both events proved highly successful with record-breaking sales made to date.

All-New ProCab™

Best-selling ProCab™, built with the modern taxi driver in mind, reached record sales last year and its popularity continues to triumph.

Built on Ford’s reliable Tourneo Custom chassis, ProCab™ combines an exclusively-appointed interior with a wealth of equipment, space and the latest safety technology to complete the ideal hackney taxi.

For a limited time only, we’re offering a minimum trade-in value of £2,000* against the all-new ProCab™, there’s never been a better time for cabbies to upgrade.

Moving with M8™

Also, on show was the impressive Mercedes-Benz M8™. Proving a popular choice, the M8™ has become a firm favourite among today’s taxi trade.

Featuring Mercedes’ innovative BlueEfficiency technologies under the bonnet, the latest Euro 6 diesel engine offers outstanding fuel consumption and reduced CO2 emissions.

Combining superb engineering with full hackney specification, the all-new M8™ won’t disappoint.

Roadshows Popular with Cabbies

Cab Direct Sales Director, David Facenna, attended both events and was delighted to welcome so many valued new and exisiting customers. He commented: “Over the years, our taxi roadshows have become increasingly popular.

“We’ve built a strong reputation on meeting the needs of the taxi trade and this commitment reflects on the hard work of all at Cab Direct. It was great to attend both events and we’re delighted it was such a success. We look forward to hosting more roadshows as we set our sights on even more locations throughout the UK.”

Future dates will be posted on our Facebook page first – keep your eyes peeled and we could be coming to an area near you soon! 

*Trade-in vehicle must be under the same ownership for a minimum of 12 months and have a valid taxi plate.
