Raymond Wardropper is a taxi driver in North Lanarkshire, Scotland. He recently purchased the Ford Procab™ from Cab Direct and has never looked back. With 80% of his work being wheelchair jobs, he is delighted at how simply the Easyglide™ wheelchair ramp slides out. He finds the accessibility it provides a huge improvement on his previous taxi.
“The ramp in the Procab is much better than my last taxi and it’s really easy to use”
Every Procab™ comes with unique EasyGlide™ pull-out ramp from Cab Direct as standard. Integrated with the passenger compartment floor, the EasyGlide™ ramp is quick, light and easy to use.
The ProCab™ also features our unique EasySlide™ rear seat, developed specifically for the taxi trade. It allows drivers to create more room in the rear compartment for disabled passengers when required. You’ll also find self-retracting wheelchair tie-downs plus a lap and diagonal three-point seat belt for your wheelchair passenger in this great cab.
Twin electric side steps and high visibility grab handles help your passengers enter and exit your cab safely. A hearing induction loop is also included for the hard of hearing.
Raymond is contracted to transport around 20 wheelchair passengers every day and he says “The ramp in the Procab is much better than my last taxi and it’s really easy to use. The front and back clamps help secure my wheelchair passenger. It’s great for transporting parents with prams too!”
“The interior lighting is great in this cab. Even the ramp lights up – ideal for night journeys!”
The ProCab™ is the ideal hackney taxi providing a wealth of equipment and safety technology. Some of the key features include our high-impact protection partition screen, quick release door system, driver controlled remote door locking as well as front and rear courtesy light with theatre style dimming. Talking about the interior features, Raymond raved “the lock to secure the wheelchair is very handy and the interior lighting is great in this cab. Even the ramp lights up – ideal for night journeys!”
Comfort and Drive
The new ProCab™ is not only a stylish hackney taxi but also extremely comfortable to drive. Features like heated front seats, front and rear air conditioning, rain sensing wipers and parking sensors provide a great driving experience. Raymond commented “I thoroughly enjoy driving an automatic and my son absolutely loves the heated front seats!”
The ProCab™ is packed with high-tech functionality including an 8” colour TFT touchscreen, satellite navigation and voice activated Ford SYNC with DAB radio and Android Auto™ / CarPlay.
“I’ve been really pleased with the service from Cab Direct and I’ve already recommended them to a friend!”
The ProCab™ can accommodate up to eight passengers in comfort and style with its six-seat rear compartment and the option of a double seat up front. It’s Cab Direct’s largest ever hackney, with a massive 1180 litre boot – perfect for hotel, train stations or airport runs.
Wide opening sliding side doors make way to a roomy rear compartment, finished with quality, hard wearing materials throughout. All rear seats are EasyWipe™, with high visibility patches while the hard floor is durable and easy to clean. Raymond agrees “There’s load of space in the rear and the boot space is very generous.”
Raymond concluded “I’ve been really pleased with the service from Cab Direct and I’ve already recommended them to a friend!”
