Mark Lester Wheelchair Taxibus Comments

Very professional, efficient, reliable service (5 stars out of 5)
"We use this service regularly and Mark is always incredibly helpful and courteous. The tail lift is much more comfortable for the person in the wheelchair, as is facing forward. Can't recommend them highly enough, always prompt and 100% reliable."

Can't be bettered for service (5 stars out of 5)
"even rings the doorbell when he arrives so that,if you are in a flat you don't need to wait outside in the cold. Few taxi drivers do that."

wonderful to have a tail lift instead of a ramp and much safer (5 stars out of 5)
"I don't mind admitting that being pushed up a ramp by a taxi driver fills me with dread and coming back down is nothing short of terrifying. In fact I believe it to be unsafe. This taxi is safe as well as reliable. Why can't all taxis be like this?"

Better than your usual 'accessible' taxi (5 stars out of 5)
"I work at the Chaseley Trust where a lot of the service users have large, heavy power chairs but Marks taxi can easily accommodate these. The electric tail lift takes a lot of stress out of the situation as it can sometimes be nerve wracking watching a resident trying to access a taxi via a ramp and trying to duck their head to get in the vehicle! The taxi is roomy and has all the appropriate tie down points and seat belts for the wheelchair user. Mark is extremely efficient, helpful and accommodating. Cost is very reasonable for what is an excellent service."

A friendly reliable accessible taxi service (5 stars out of 5)
"I use Mark if I need a taxi into town from Langney or even to Seaford. He is nice guy to be with and you soon find yourself chatting to him which makes the journey more interesting. I am visually impaired but I also have a problem with my left knee and Mark is always very helpful when getting in and out of the taxi. His prices are very reasonable too."

A great cost-effective service for Wheelchair and Walking Frame users! (5 stars out of 5)
"Mark collected my Mum from the Esperance Hospital after knee surgery. She walked onto the tail lift with her frame, was lifted up, walked into wide aisle of this tall vehicle and sat down in a seat. Compared with the struggle of her climbing into a normal car this was easy and pain-free. Considering that Mark's vehicle is so specialised the cost was very reasonable and not much more than a normal taxi to Seaford. He's also a nice guy and take time to talk to the passenger and reassure them. Highly Recommended! Rob Sims."

A friendly reliable wheelchair accessible taxi service (5 stars out of 5)
"I use this service regularly as do many of my disabled and non-disabled friends. Accessible even to those with heavy power chairs. One main advantage is that it is available during hours between 8am and 9.30am when other accessible taxis are engaged in contract school work.The owner is helpful and also entertaining!"
