Meet Mark Waller who runs Advanced Taxis Billericay, a firm launched in November 2007. Mark and his family have lived in Billericay for over 25 years so he has excellent background knowledge of the town and its taxi requirements. He has seen the town transformed from being a sleepy semi-rural High Street during the 1980s to the busy town it is today. He knows there is no replacement for the local personal service that many residents of Billericay desire, confident that their taxi is going to turn up on time, be clean and presentable with a friendly driver. Mark’s newest development concerns TAXICALL, a group of three independent taxi drivers who for a minimal fee can receive bookings direct to their own mobile phone via a dedicated number 01277 888 988. Advanced Taxis' current vehicles are all seven seaters. There are plans to eventually add saloon and 8 seater cabs. When a customer rings the number, they will be directed to the next available driver who will give them a time for pick up. This is a simple but most effective operation, cutting out the need for premises and taxi controllers, thereby reducing costs. Advanced Taxis are also available for Airport Runs,Social functions and Corporate Events. This scheme is launched on Thursday lst May. Further details from Mark or phone: 07979 456785
