I tried various 'private' cab companies a few weeks ago. Booking to go to Lime Street Station and booking a week in advance, so it was not possible to say they were all booked up. I didn't want these companies such as Wirral Satellite , as they quite often don;t turn up, find the wrong address, or are late.
Not company would say they could book it. I'm in Thingwall/Pensby. Upton , Neston , Bebington. They all quoted me a ridiculous price of £25 or over.
In the end I had to use Heswall which is Wirral Satellite now and it cost £14.
I came to the conclusion as with window cleaners, they now have their own patch and so we have to use what's on offer, not what we would like.
That sort of thing is reminiscent of the 'mafia'. I hate it and it should be stopped by law. Why can't we choose who we want?
...and those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.FN
