Gareth Owen, co-director of Dragon Taxis, has recently strengthened his impressive taxi fleet by buying 12 new Fiat Freedoms from Cab Direct.
Gareth, who owns the Cardiff based company along with Carl Tritschler, has 440 drivers of which around 12% rent. So, it’s important that he has vehicles that he can rely on.
Gareth explains: “I needed some new taxis that were fit for purpose and I was looking for the best vehicle I could get at the most economical price – the Fiat Freedom is ideal.”
Cab Direct’s lowest costing wheelchair accessible cab, the Fiat Freedom is specially adapted from the Fiat Doblo and comes in two models – Active or Dynamic. This economical, highly versatile taxi makes loading wheelchair passengers easy with the option of a lightweight, folding rear ramp or twin telescopic ramps.
The low purchase price combines with low running costs to make this one of the most cost effective taxis on the market today. Gareth comments: “For my end, basically I was looking for a good vehicle at the right price and the Fiat Freedom ticks all the boxes. The fuel economy is absolutely excellent too – perfect for the drivers.”
Available exclusively from Cab Direct, every aspect of the Fiat Freedom has been designed with the modern day driver in mind. As well as carrying up to four passengers there’s bags of luggage space to make sure you can handle every type of fare.
Gareth comments: “Something I had to take into consideration was space and versatility. With the Fiat Freedom, there’s no problem with either.”
The high roofed, spacious taxi has proved a big success for Gareth and his company and he is only too happy to recommend it to anybody else looking for the same things.
