Longleys Cabs

Drivers Required! Hackney and Private Hire... Due to massive expansion and very high customer demand, we are taking on new drivers. Great rates for account work, and the best prices for airport work (£85 Gatwick, £119 Heathrow). Very high volume of cash work available. Experienced Private Hire Drivers: 60/40% split. Company pays for all fuel, insurance and maintenance. Our company car drivers take absolute priority on all bookings, and we send the closest driver to the booking to maximise the amount of work we can cover and how much our drivers can earn. This position is for experienced drivers who are capable of grafting hard and can keep up with high demand while offering exceptional customer service. Our highest earning company driver took home £700 plus tips this week. That’s what was taken home after paying the company. Hackney Carriage Drivers: We don’t charge owner-drivers a circuit fee, just a straight percentage of any work you cover for us (20%, but only £10.00 for an airport transfer). No hidden fees. Account work paid weekly. You must be able to provide a suitable vehicle licensed by Canterbury City Council and an Android phone (Android 4.0 onwards) to sign on to our system. You must be prepared to work to our pricing structure (available on request) and have an impeccable standard of customer service. Your vehicle must meet our company criteria and carry no other advertising. Your vehicle must be cleaned daily. This is an ideal opportunity for independent drivers frustrated by over-flowing taxi ranks. Although our company drivers take priority over owner-drivers, we are usually running a big delay due to high demand, and so any owner-drivers out on circuit are kept busy. This is a completely flexible opportunity for the right drivers to take on more work. New to the industry? If you have the right attitude and a great work ethic, then we can help you get into the industry. You’ll need to obtain a licence from Canterbury City Council and be over the age of 21. Call us on 01227 710777 (Ask for Dave or Steve) or email with your CV and contact details. ... See Less

Local cabs in and around Canterbury
Our lovely drivers will take you anywhere that you need to go. You could be travelling around Canterbury on business, or visiting Auntie Dot for a cuppa. Either way you'll get the same attention and level of service.

We are known to all the local surgeries, hospital departments, dentists and hairdressers in Canterbury, as well as the local pubs, hotels and restaurants.

We decided that any discount aimed at one part of the community was a little unfair, so we decided to make a promise to all of our customers. That promise is to give a brilliant service for the lowest possible price - that's for everyone! That doesn't mean we don't run occasional promotions and special offers, because we do like to have a little fun!

Going the extra mile - Long Distance!
Our vehicles are insured for European travel, so we can pretty much take you anywhere. We always joke that if someone paid us enough, we would have a decent stab at taking them to the moon! From Canterbury to Cardiff or anywhere in between - let us take the strain. Send us an enquiry and we'll take care of the rest!

New to Canterbury?
Moving to a new city can be exciting and daunting at the same time. We're happy to help you move into your new accommodation - we have a special deal for moving house, and we can provide a van if needed.

Check out our tours page as well. We can show you around your new home and help you get your bearings!

Safe Transport at Night
Canterbury is one of the safest places to study in the UK. However, you should still be mindful of your own welfare, and a little bit of planning goes a long way! Here are our top tips for an enjoyable night!

  • Tell someone where you are going, and what time you expect to be back.
  • Carry a mobile phone with battery and credit!
  • Travel in groups and split the cost of taxi fares.
  • Have a meeting point defined if someone gets lost. If you get lost (Like, truly, totally lost and you're a bit worried) then give us a call on 01227 710777 and we'll try to direct you. We don't mind, honest! We know the area really well.
  • Plan your journey home, and take a look at the weather! We've seen girls in tiny dresses and chaps in T shirts in a blizzard. 'Snow Joke! :) Book a cab for an agreed time, or take coats and plan to walk in a group.
  • The buses stop early out here in the sticks. Also they are SLOOW.
  • Don't drink too much! We know it's tempting, but it's only amusing for other people who witness you trying to climb inside your own shoe! We're not party poopers here, but staying sensible means you won't get turned away from the pubs and clubs, and you'll be able to get a nice warm cab home when you're done. The alternative is to sleep in a bush. Not comfy.
Moving Stuff!
We can help you move projects around (pay attention Art and Drama students!) and we will even help you move house at the end of term. Please just make sure that any paint is dry, and that we dont come into direct contact with any smelly socks! An affordable man with a van service is also available.
