About Elite London Taxis Ltd
In the 1990’s Elite London Taxi’s owner Dave Hurd ran a small fleet of FX4 Plus, Fairway and Fairway Driver taxis in London but after deciding in 2001 that being a taxi proprietor wasn’t for him he decided to sell the taxis instead! There were all of the usual options available but nowhere on the internet, so he decided to set up a website and ‘Elite London Taxis’ was born. He got a young local designer to write a single page website and within a few months had made his first sale, an FX4 Plus taxi was sold to a couple from Belgium! In 2006 the company moved to a small office in Woodford which was home until August 2009 when the company moved again into spacious new garage/office premises in Hainault, Essex.
Perfect for Advertising & Promotional Work – Stand Out From The Crowd
What else, apart from maybe a red telephone box says ‘London UK’ louder and better than a black London taxi? Are you looking to advertise your ‘London’ themed business? Do you run an English or London themed bar or night club? What better for your advertising than a London taxi! Due to their large side area these taxis are used extensively in London for advertising and promotional work, so why not buy one for your business and take advantage of this.
Perfect For Weddings & Proms
We have in the past sold many, many taxis to people that use them for weddings. Whether kept in the original black or resprayed white they will make a profitable addition to your wedding car fleet! They also have the added benefit of being accessible to everyone including those in wheelchairs.
Spacious & Fun Family Run-Around
The classic London taxi also makes a spacious and quirky family run-around and are very manoeuvrable and easy to drive around town. If you have loads of kids or dogs (or maybe both!) what else is more practical? We have also sold many taxis to artists and musicians who appreciate the large passenger area. And as to safety, in most accidents the London cab is going to come off best due to its rigid chassis and solid construction.
Servicing & Taxi Parts
Due to the very competitive nature of the taxi maintenance market, service items for taxis are very cheap. Typically a set of filters will cost less than £25.00. Brake parts and body panels are also relatively cheap and don’t forget that the body panels bolt on and off making for cheaper repairs. Through our sister site at: www.taxi-mart.co.uk we can supply many spare parts for your taxi at very reasonable rates. We supply pattern parts and also new parts from the main dealers. Please e-mail with your requirements.
How We Sell our Taxis
We have a very high turnover of vehicles (sometimes 3 a week) and are generally repairing/restoring around 3-4 taxis at any one time. We also try to buy taxis that are still plated (licensed for London) or taxis that have only recently ‘come off plate’. We never, ever, have vehicles sitting around in the open waiting for sale!! This means that we basically fix up your taxi to order.
Our Ex-London taxis can be shipped anywhere in the world. If you have a genuine interest in purchasing a London taxi please email us for a shipping quote. If you are interested in buying one of our taxis or have any other questions please contact us.
