The Wheels Keep on Turning

Over the past few months public transport and private hire transport companies have been hugely hit by the impact of Covid 19.

As lockdown restrictions were put in place over the last few months, the demand for taxi or bus services dropped, with people remaining in their homes and travelling only when necessary.

As CAVA’s specialist areas cover Coach, Minibus and Taxi finance, we were well aware that our clients were facing some difficult months ahead. What we’ve seen is a great sense of camaraderie, community spirit and positivity.

We’ve shared several stories from our clients, from Brighter Blinds to Thomas Moss. This month we’d like to share the story of Wheels Private Hire Ltd, one of our longest standing customers.

We’ve worked with Director Steve Howard for five years now and since 2015 we’ve helped the company grow their fleet and maintain a great service. With over 22 years of experience in the private hire industry, the Leeds based company weren’t going to be slowed down by a national lockdown!

Wheels have remained active on their social pages, ensuring customers are aware that they’re available to assist 24/7 as usual. The brilliant team have continued to provide reliable, clean and efficient transport solutions to keyworkers and the general public, who need to make essential travel.

The private hire firm has ensured that key workers can travel safely with priority booking for NHS workers and that general public can get supplies, all whilst strengthening their community.

Even during a time of crisis they’ve been helping local businesses and supporting their customers by teaming up with YouCard, which provides discounts from various companies across Leeds.

We’re proud to be working with such resilient companies during this time and are looking forward to restrictions easing and working together again.
