What you will get when you book Keith's Private Hire: 

A professional driver with over 40 years experience, who is police checked (DBS enhanced), DVSA and Safeguarding certified, licensed by New Forest District Council under Private Hire Operator Licence No. 196
and registered with Hampshire County Council for school runs and adult services. For added reassurance I also have £10 million Public Liability Insurance, the highest available. 

I offer a first class executive Private Hire Taxi Service at an affordable price. The service you get is unlike any other that you will have experienced before. I'll carefully plan your booking and allow room to amend times or destinations. Your booking will not be affected by any other booking, meaning you can be assured a reliable and dedicated service. My focus will always be you, the customer.

My executive minibus is licensed to carry up to 8 passengers, providing an enjoyable, luxury experience for every person, with plenty of legroom and space and the added bonus of rear seat climate control. So much comfort in fact, that there's a real risk you may catch a snooze while you travel, leaving you totally refreshed and relaxed when you arrive at your destination, ready for that business meeting, or that first holiday cocktail. As for storage there is even plenty of luggage space to transport all your items, whether it is suitcases, holdalls, golf clubs, cycle boxes, ski bags, pushchairs, walking aid strollers, foldable wheelchairs or mobility scooters.

I come "highly recommended” and guarantee you will not be disappointed. Don't just take my word for it though, see my Google and Facebook reviews from people who have used my service. Make the right choice. 


Where do you want to go?


If you are looking for a reliable, professional driver I strongly recommend Keith. I have been let down so many times by other firms in my area. I need piece of mind when I am travelling. When I am leaving in the early hours of the morning I need the reassurance that my ride to the airport won't let me down. Very comfortable transport and Keith is an excellent driver.
