I've used LT since the business started and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Very professional with friendly drivers and excellent call handlers. Always on time and the fixed rates are really reasonable. Thank you LT for everything you do. Keep up the great work.

From making the initial call to the company for a car to the end of the journey, every member of the team was very friendly and chatty. I felt comfortable with the drivers and in no way stressed. Very willing in helping with shopping and with the elderly with walking appliances and wheelchairs. I like their attitude to people when picking up always a friendly comment. I do not use any other service except Local Taxi's even if I have to wait. I trust them implicitly.
