About Alton 8s Taxis

We are a professional, reliable and trustworthy local taxi service who pride ourselves on providing the most efficient, yet friendly service for all of our clients. The company is made up of a dedicated and friendly team who are there to ensure that the best service is provided for all of our clients.

Alton 8s began as a small local taxi service until it was taken over in 2006. In the past 10 year, the company has gone from strength to strength, expanding in size and capacity. Moving on from a total number of 3 vehicles on our fleet to now having 12, enables us to provide you, the client with a wider choice and flexibility when choosing Alton 8s as your trusted taxi service. The fleet boasts a variety of vehicles, ranging from a luxurious Mercedes E Class to smooth Vauxhall Zafiras. We also have both an 8 seater Ford Torneo Mini Bus and a Fiat Scudo to cater for those larger parties. All of our vehicles are maintained to a high standard, being serviced every 20,000 miles to ensure that all of our clients have the most comfortable experience possible.

Our service offers transportation for many different occasions; weddings, school runs, shopping trips and airport transfers. When requesting an airport transfer, you will receive full confirmation via email. If your airport transfer is out of the usual office hours, you will receive a text message the evening before with the contact number for your allocated driver and our out of hours telephone number, to give you peace of mind and maintain continuous contact throughout your experience with us. When returning home from a trip away, you will receive a text message from your allocated driver, arranging where to meet you.

All of our drivers operate using a new technological system called ICABBIE. This enables us to track each and every vehicle using the latest GPS technology, giving you peace of mind for every journey that you embark on with us. To make this process easier for you, the client we also have an app available to download to ensure a smooth transaction from the very initial stages of booking to the completion of your journey.
