About Us

 

Local Cars, although a new company itself, has over 30 years of experience serving the Bradford District with a quality service to its customers. The company has grown significantly over the last several years through acquisition in the relevant areas to expand our service. From the humble beginnings of the company starting with 3 cars we now proudly boast a fleet of over 90 vehicles able to carry between 1 to 8 people at a time. We have standard cars, prestige cars, cars specifically designed for wheelchairs and minibuses so that we can cater for all needs for our everyday customers.

We operate a 24 hour service with our offices manned 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by our trained operators. We run at single time all year including Christmas, New Year’s and bank holidays.

We run and operate the world’s leading bookings and dispatch system allowing us to offer you the customer many advantages by knowing where all our cars are at any time. We offer a text back & ring back service as standard so that our customers are aware when we are waiting for them. We constantly strive to improve our service so we are always looking at new technologies available within the marketplace and when required we will integrate these technologies into the business.

We also offer a very comprehensive range of account packages to suit all customers from basic single accounts to our larger corporate clients with many different departments requiring their own sub accounts. Accounts are available subject to status and can be billed weekly or monthly to suit your own specific requirements.

We do of course have the good old fashioned but highly trained operators ready to take your calls and answer any queries or enquiries you may have and to take bookings.

All our cars have the latest in car systems with integral satellite navigation allowing them to enter any street or destination in U.K.
