Welcome to Corky’s Cars, Cannock’s premier taxi firm, where we pride ourselves not just on getting you to your destination promptly, but also ensuring you arrive safely and comfortably. In the current climate, the importance of safety within the taxi industry cannot be overstated. As such, we’ve taken extensive measures to ensure the wellbeing of both our passengers and our dedicated team of drivers. In this post, we’ll delve into the comprehensive safety protocols and measures we’ve put in place, reflecting our unwavering commitment to your security and peace of mind.
A Commitment to Excellence
At Corky’s Cars, safety isn’t just a policy; it’s the very foundation of our service ethos. We understand that when you choose us, you’re placing your trust in our hands. That’s why we’ve gone above and beyond to create a safe, secure, and comfortable environment for every journey.
Rigorous Driver Vetting and Training
Safety starts with our drivers. Each member of our team undergoes a rigorous selection process, ensuring they not only have the necessary qualifications but also share our commitment to passenger safety. This includes comprehensive background checks, ensuring a clean driving record, and verifying professional credentials.
But we don’t stop there. Our drivers receive ongoing training that covers not just safe driving practices but also customer service, emergency response, and health and safety protocols. This holistic approach ensures that our drivers are not just capable behind the wheel but are also prepared to handle any situation with professionalism and care.
Regular Vehicle Maintenance and Safety Checks
Our fleet is our pride, comprising modern, well-maintained vehicles equipped with the latest safety features. Each car undergoes regular maintenance and safety checks to ensure it meets our high standards and government safety regulations. From tyre treads to brake systems, and engine performance to lighting, every aspect of our vehicles is meticulously inspected to prevent any issues before they arise.
Advanced Booking and Tracking Systems
In today’s digital age, technology plays a crucial role in enhancing safety. Our advanced booking system not only provides a seamless reservation experience but also ensures we have all the necessary details to make your journey safe and personalised. Our vehicles are equipped with GPS tracking, allowing us to monitor every trip in real-time, providing an extra layer of security for both passengers and drivers.
COVID-19 Measures: Going the Extra Mile
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve implemented stringent health and safety measures in line with government guidelines to protect both our passengers and drivers. This includes regular sanitisation of vehicles, mandatory mask-wearing for both drivers and passengers, and the installation of protective screens in all our taxis. We also encourage contactless payment options to reduce physical contact.
Passenger Safety: Tips and Best Practices
While we do everything in our power to ensure your safety, there are also steps you can take to contribute to a secure and pleasant journey:
- Book in Advance: Whenever possible, book your ride in advance through our official app or website. This ensures that your ride is documented, and you have all the details about your driver and vehicle beforehand.
- Share Your Trip: Use our app to share your journey details with a trusted contact, providing them with real-time updates on your location and estimated arrival time.
- Seatbelt Use: Always wear your seatbelt, even on short journeys. It’s the most effective way to protect yourself in the unlikely event of an accident.
- Avoid Distractions: Engage with your driver if you wish, but avoid distracting them unnecessarily, especially in challenging driving conditions.
- Report Concerns: If you ever feel uncomfortable or have any concerns during your journey, don’t hesitate to speak up. Our drivers are trained to handle such situations with discretion and professionalism. You can also contact our customer service team, who are available 24/7 to assist you.
