What do you do when you've left an item inside a taxi?
It can be highly distressing and worrying to realise that you've accidentally left your belongings inside your taxi ride, here we discuss potential preventative measures you can take to ensure these types of scenarios are avoided.
Private Car Hire Taxi companies (PCH) generally keep a record of the passenger and journey details, which can be a breath of relief knowing that you can do things to ensure that you get your personal items back.
Many people request or grab a taxi from train stations, whether they be coming from connecting trains from areas such as Farnborough Main or North Stations and Aldershot Railway Station.
Train delays and railroad works tend to affect and disrupt journeys. Many people book taxis in advance to catch trains in other areas, or to ensure that they get to their destinations on time. You can never go wrong with booking with Dinez Taxis and Airport Transfers. With the heightened number of railroad works and bus replacements, it brings peace of mind to know that your trusted taxi service can get you from point A, to point B on time.
Our tips prior to your journey:
When taking a taxi from the roadside or the train station, it's best to remember the following:
1. Take note and photos of the well-known features of the taxi vehicles - the colour, size, make/model, plate numbers
2. Another option is to alert a friend of your journey, with details on the number plate of the vehicle, as well as pick and destination details
3. Request for the driver's ID. taxi drivers are legally obliged to show you their IDs or license. You can report to the Taxi Licensing Authorities if a driver has refused to show you their identification.
When booking with Dinez Taxis, be rest assured; we provide essential need-to-know information on the driver's name and photo, and the vehicle's model, make, and registration number.
We also send automated reminders, a day before, and 30 minutes prior to your trip.
Please note that different locations will have different taxi licensing offices, refer to the corresponding taxi licensing offices if you need to contact them and report your concerns.
