Clients about us


Amazing service by local drivers. Spoke to a lovely member of staff when ordering my taxi who couldn’t have been anymore helpful. My taxi arrived on time and the driver was very friendly. Value for money and they exceeded ym expectations, I will be using them again

K Diamond, South Shields

I am very happy to recommend Local Taxis in South Shields after having a bad experience with another taxi service I reserved myself to the fact I was never going to use a taxi again. Clean taxi and very polite driver who was very helpful and made every effort to ensure my journey was safe and relaxing. I now have a new local taxi service that are really local.

Dr A Snowdon, South Shields

I was picked up last night from South Shields town centre by a very polite and friendly taxi driver, he informed me that from next week there was going to be a new taxi service opening in South Shields, Local Taxi’s and give me a business card, if this is the standard of taxi drivers work there I am definitely going to be using them from now on he even waited until I got in the house before he drove off FANTASTIC. I highly recommend that everyone gives Local Taxi’s a go. 5 🌟 Good luck with your new taxi service
