Ascott Cab Company to continue as an official TX4 retailer

After a successful trial period The London Taxi Company has extended its agreement with Ascott Cab Co. to serve as an official retailer of the TX4. 

The original agreement announced in May 2015 was set up on the basis of a six month trial period. Following the successful completion of the trial, The London Taxi Company has moved to make the arrangement permanent on the back of positive customer feedback on Ascot Cab Co.’s South London location, strong commercial performance and effective working relationships that have been established between the companies. 

Richard Gordon, The London Taxi Company’s Commercial Director, said:

“The response to the appointment of Ascott Cab Co. over the last six months has been very positive. The combination of their location, team commitment and customer loyalty gives us the confidence to move forward on a permanent basis.

With the first deliveries of the new TX4 Euro6 cab underway, interest is strong in this new model that is more powerful, smoother and the most environmentally efficient vehicle that we have ever produced. It makes sense to offer our customers the convenient option of a retailer in South London in addition to our flagship London dealership at Brewery Road in North London.”

Andy Ascott from Ascott Cab Co. said:

“We have been really pleased by the response and support of our customers. Since our appointment we have received more than 90 orders for new TX4 cabs which demonstrates the value we can add. Everyone at Ascott Cab Co. is delighted to be extending this partnership and will continue to focus on delivering the highest standards of service to our loyal customers.”
