Sean Dixon, from Bury St. Edmonds in Suffolk, has recently taken delivery of a Peugeot Eurobus from Cab Direct and he is ecstatic with his new taxi.
Sean, who has been working as a taxi driver for five years, previously drove a Kia Sedona. However, when his council brought in new regulations Sean decided to take the opportunity to obtain a hackney plate and bought a wheelchair accessible cab – and he couldn’t be happier with his new Eurobus.
Before making his decision Sean looked into other taxis available on the market including the TX, Mercedes Benz Vito and Volkswagen Transporter. But in the end he decided that the Eurobus SW was the vehicle for him – providing full wheelchair access and with space for driver and up to six seated passengers.
Sean explains: “The main reason I chose the Eurobus is because I do a lot of long distance as well as local work and I wanted to retain the image of a more executive style cab. The Eurobus combines executive design with great economy, versatility and comfort – and all at a fantastic price.”
Versatility Made Simple
In the UK’s hard working taxi industry you need a vehicle that fits your needs, whatever the nature of your business. Versatility is crucial and the Eurobus cab offers the ultimate in flexibility with wheelchair accessibility combined with multiple seating capacity and huge luggage space.
Sean could not enthuse more about his new taxi. He comments: “The Eurobus handles as smoothly and easily as any car. And it combines loads of leg room for passengers with masses of luggage space. The ease of conversion for wheelchairsis excellent too. The removal and storage of seats in the boot make this a simple exercise. And the fuel economy is just fantastic – far superior to what I was driving before.”
Nothing but Positives
Perhaps not surprisingly, Sean isn’t the only one to praise the Eurobus. He explains: “All feedback on the vehicle has been extremely positive, by both new and regular customers. Since my new cab has been around town enquiries and bookings for multi-people transport and airport work have greatly increased.”
And it would seem the Eurobus has proved popular with other taxi drivers too. Sean comments: “As for other cabbies, I’ve already been informed that one driver has placed an order and a couple of others will probably follow suit when they renew their cabs. I even know of one driver who bought an different make of modern-style taxi who now actually regrets buying it and wishes he’d bought the same as me!”
Sean concludes in his praise: “I would highly recommend the Eurobus as a great, economic and versatile taxi which retains style and comfort”
