Customer focused technology, where old fashioned values meets hi-tech modernism.
Hull Cars popularity and success has been founded on short passenger waiting times and a reliable, professional service. We're famous for being the first firm in the city to offer a FREE texting service to all our customers with comprehensive updates about their soon to arrive vehicle, keeping us at the forefront of transportation technology. Hull cars are also the first to offer a metered service for Private Hire vehicles. But our foresight in terms of customer service and technological advancement does not end there.
Here are just a few of the ways we use technology to benefit the 1/2 million passengers we carry around our region every year.
Technology is at the foundation of our business model, allowing us to manage customer journeys from the point of booking right through to drop-off, using our auto allocator system. Saving CO2 emissions and ensuring your vehicle arrives in the shortest possible time frame.
We send each of our passengers an SMS text message informing them when your car is on its way and again when it's waiting outside. We include the driver's mobile number the vehicle registration, and all the vehicle details (colour, make and model) so you can identify your car safely and contact the driver directly should you need to.
The new generation of smartphones puts our fleet of premium taxis at your finger tips with our range of free mobile booking apps. Just as quick as booking via the call centre, we expect to make hundreds of bookings using the Hull Cars Apps each and every week.
