Chris Lewin – Managing Director – Proprietor
I started Elite Cars over 25 years ago, when the word Mini Cab had
many negative connotations, so I set about by professionalising
both my company and my industry. Today I am proud to say we are
South West London’s very best cab company.
Since the day I started Elite Cars I´ve stuck to these 3 daily objectives …
Clients Safety First
Raising a daughter I have always placed an emphasis on safety, especially for women. My daughter Carly is now in a management role so we are now proudly a second generation family owned and operated business. All of our vehicles are maintained to the highest standard, and all of our drivers have to go through a criminal background check prior to being hired.
As a father I know that safety is always at the forefront of our minds.
Offer Best Prices
We at Elite Cars strive daily to offer the best possible price for the highest level of service. We have been operating for three decades and we have many repeat customers and our drivers have experience navigating the busy streets of our fair city.
Only Employ the Best
Elite Car Service employs the best drivers we can find. Our drivers are experienced, knowledgeable, friendly, and above all safety conscious. We make every attempt to retain our drivers.
Our drivers will pick you up wearing a smile, and dressed very smartly in a shirt and tie, whilst driving an impeccably maintained vehicle. Even the most discerning of passengers will be pleased with Elite Car Service staff members.
I have never forgotten these objectives and never will, the reason many passengers have chosen Elite for the past 30 years is because you know you are safe in one of our vehicles and you know we are great at what we do.
I introduced my daughter Carly to the business 5 years ago ensuring we keep that family run business alive and to ensure the quality I expect from my drivers and staff remains the highest standard at all times.
All our drivers undergo an enhanced CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) check and must hold a valid PCO licence. This ensures our passengers’ safety and security. Our drivers are required to wear uniform and maintain a professional manner whilst operating.
The drivers appearance and vehicles are checked on a regular basis. They are unable to work if they do not meet our strict standards.
These high standards mean we stand out as South London’s leading professional taxi service provider.
Elite are integrated with Cordic, a leading booking and despatch solution. It is the most advanced and reliable taxi and private hire data despatch system available on the market today.
Customers details are stored for easy repeat bookings, and can be sent texts or emails with journey and driver details. The system also allows us to track the drivers and provide accurate ETA information.
