Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you based? How far will you travel?

We are based in Hertfordshire. We will travel nationwide and do travel all over the country as this is such a rare and desirable vehicle. We have to make a charge for delivery of the vehicle which is based on 50p per mile to cover the cost of fuel. This needs to be added onto the hire cost.

Can I drive the NYC taxi myself?

Sorry, this is not possible for a number of reasons:

The car can take some getting used to as they have different controls and handling characteristics to normal modern British cars.
Our insurance doesn't cover other drivers; this helps us to keep our costs down as much as possible.
The vehicles are very rare and valuable and huge deposits would need to be paid.
It makes it one less thing to worry about if we provide your driver!!

How many people can travel in the taxicab?

The Checker Cab can seat 5 passengers; one next to the driver and four in the rear. Please note that our vehicle does not have any rear seatbelts.

How do I go about booking?

Please let us know that you want to book the cab as early as possible as we only have one of them, and once it's gone, it's gone. This is especially important in the Summer, around bank holidays and towards Christmas when we are very busy. Once you have asked to book the taxicab, we will send you out a booking form and you will need to pay a deposit (which is 50% or £200 - whichever is the lower amount). You can pay by cheque or bank transfer.

What will you be wearing on the day?

Our driver will be dressed as a typical 1980's New York Cabbie. If you would like the driver to dress in a suit, please just ask.
