Station Taxis Yarm
 
 
Thieving driver last night (partly my fault)
Just beware
My wife booked them to go from Crathorne to The Tontine.
Fella arrived and we chatted about the match - all good.
Got to the end and he said £15!
Looked for the metre and it wasn’t on.

Return journey different fella pitched up. Had his metre on - just over a tenner.

I use them a lot, they’re a bit dodgy and the state of the cars is sometimes a real worry, questionably dangerous. But in their favour they’re much better than all the other ropey drug dealing shyšters that operate in the area.

Did you question the amount at the time?

It was one of those things where I was just so surprised I paid up.

Called them since and asked them how much for a taxi from Crathorne to The Tontine. They said £10.
Asked why I was charged £15 without a metre last night. They said you must have been quoted £15 when you booked. Told them that wasn’t the case at all.
Basically it’s ‘tough’

You bought something without asking the price, then you didn't like the price?

a woman reversed into my car at Teesside park, I took her details and those of a taxi driver from Station Cars as a witness.
When I called and asked him for a statement the next day he said no problem but wanted £50

Shame, looks like you got a wrong un. I've been using these guys for years and never not had a meter on. The fares have generally stayed pretty much the same over the years to.I don't know how they manage that, but I'm not complaining. I wouldn't be happy with being asked for £50 for a witness statement either, that is taking the pi**s!

Royal taxis are fine but the cars are not always the cleanest, cigarette smells are normal

Stop whinging about Yarm! Beer prices, Joe Baxi prices etc etc.

Given the times of your lift you might have been on a different rate.

Was it a hackney? Station Taxis will be under the Stockton jurisdiction. Some of the privates just charge what they want late on.

Why is booze so important? I'm sorry I have no sympathy for folk who moan about Joe Baxi's.

Station are a good firm, you wont survive in Eaglescliffe (ST are based in Eaglescliffe) if you are ripping folk off. I used them and thought they were very reasonable.

Just drive next time, take turns.

And you took a taxi to the Tontine to eat but a few scraps from the tables ?

It isn't.
It's also about six miles.
