ARTIST Paul Hawthorne has brought the walls of Salisbury taxi firm All the Sevens to life with an eye-catching mural of a taxi cab set against the backdrop of Salisbury Cathedral and Stonehenge.
Taxi firm boss Gary Taylor said he wanted to give the office a new look so he decided to commission Mr Hawthorn, who has already provided artwork for Danny’s Bar in Salt Lane and has contributed to many exhibitions.
“I just wanted something that would really stand out because the firm is going really well at the moment and I felt we ought to capture that feel good factor,” said Mr Taylor.
The 18-month-old business, which has 20 drivers on its books, has grown considerably and is now having its busiest time since its inception.
The firm has adopted a new hi-tech booking system, i-cabbie, which will streamline bookings and dispatch taxis quicker. It has number and address recognition and as soon as the customer has made the booking they will receive a text to confirm despatch and the vehicle is GPS tracked.
It is all a far cry from the early days when Mr Taylor drove the cabs, manned the phones and ran the business himself.
He has also launched an airport transfer service alongside All the Sevens called Salisbury Airport Cars. This service specialises in executive cars and streamlined efficiency in getting clients to and from the airport.
He said: “We continue to improve our service continuously, we recently relaunched our website to raise our company profile as well as being an active presence on the social media networks. Our customers are important to us and we believe in the personal approach. The new systems approach will help us to maintain the service that we promise.”
