Cab Direct’s Peugeot Premier™ is the ultimate low cost taxi solution. Providing quick and easy wheelchair access one minute and full passenger capacity, with bags of luggage space, the next – Premier™ is the ideal cab for today’s busy driver.
But it’s not just the taxi market that Premier™ can service. Here we catch up with ex-taxi driver, Fuad Mohamed, who owns Mulberry Despatch Ltd. His company provides non-emergency patient transport and here he explains why Premier™ fits the bill so well.
Accessibility Made Easy
For Mr Mohamed, stress-free wheelchair access is the key to providing a top quality service for his users. With Premier’s lightweight FlatFold™ ramp wheelchair jobs have never been easier. It simply pulls out from its position on the vehicle floor for instant access. Together with a shallow ramp gradient, wheelchair entry and exit is fast and simple.
“We chose Premier because of its versatility. It combines easy access with masses of space and comfort too.”
When the access ramp isn’t in use, it integrates seamlessly with the vehicle floor allowing you to carry four passengers with plenty of room for luggage in the boot.
Mr Mohamed said: “We started the business in May 2011, initially as a private hire firm, but later decided to venture into patient transport.
“We chose Premier because of its versatility. It combines easy access with masses of space and comfort too. Currently we have 14 drivers and 15 vehicles on the fleet and when it comes to Premier, the feedback is always positive.”
Performance & Economy
When your vehicle is your business, economy is sure to be high on your list of priorities. Thanks to Premier’s highly efficient diesel engine you can expect an impressive return of up to 68.9mpg on the combined cycle.
“We’ve never had a more efficient vehicle.”
Mr Mohamed said: “We’ve never had a more efficient vehicle. My drivers have all been really happy with how economical they are. They say that they perform with ease too which is so important when you’re in them all day long.”
Add standard spec such as electric front windows, cruise control, air conditioning, Bluetooth and plenty of storage compartments and Premier™ provides a relaxing driving environment, every time.
Cab Direct’s sales and aftersales teams are skilled to deal with all enquiries – no matter what the nature of your business – and pride themselves on delivering a first class service at all times.
Mr Mohamed concluded: “You would think trying to source such a big order to suit all of our needs would be a nightmare but working with Cab Direct has been a pleasure – the staff have made my experience and journey really easy.
“It’s easy to see why it has become such a popular vehicle among taxi drivers.”
“I would absolutely recommend Premier and Cab Direct to anyone in the same field as us or, of course, the taxi trade. It’s easy to see why it has become such a popular vehicle among taxi drivers.”
