Taxi Services

Your No. 1 Choice for Taxis in Thanet

With a fleet of over 140 vehicles Central Cars has been operating in Thanet for over 30 years. Formerly Anchor Cars, we purchased Smiley Cabs in 2002 and shortly afterwards changed our name to Central Cars. We are a family run business and, having started out in the early 1980s, we are one of the longest established companies in the area. We have achieved this longevity thanks to our commitment to offering a consistently professional and reliable taxi service to the local community. 

Operating throughout Broadstairs, Ramsgate, Margate, Birchington & Westgate

We currently have three offices strategically placed throughout Thanet, with our head office based in Broadstairs. Our staff are trained to take your call in the most efficient manner so that you get your cab as quickly as possible. Every single one of our customers are important to us; we pride ourselves on keeping our regular customers, many of whom have used our taxi services for several years. In all of our interactions, we strive to deal with our customers' requests in a polite and timely manner.

An experienced, local taxi company committed to customer care

Central Cars has become one of the largest private hire taxi companies in the Thanet area providing cabs in Margate, Ramsgate and Broadstairs and all surrounding areas. We have achieved this by expansion and by offering our customers an efficient, reliable service based on high customer care. We now employ upwards of 25 fully trained control staff who man our control desk 24 hours a day.

We use modern technology to operate our data and dispatch system enabling vehicle tracking at all times. Text-back or Ring-back service is available so that you know when your taxi is on its way and also when it has arrived at your door. We have now launched our new app to make booking online even easier.

Friendly uniformed drivers

Our drivers all support a company uniform so are easily identifiable to our customers. That way you can feel confident you are getting into the correct vehicle as safety is always of paramount concern to us.

Call us for local trips and long distance taxi journeys

For your convenience we offer numerous taxi freephones at many locations throughout Thanet, including in all of the big supermarkets and doctors surgeries, amongst others.
