QuuuQ taxicab. An unusual name offering an unusual quality of service. My aims are to offer prompt and reliable day time local taxi services combined with competitive pricing for longer distance travel requests.

If you cherish reliability above all else and are fully aware that the best value does not alway equate to the lowest cost then the QuuuQ taxicab may be just the taxi service provider you deserve.

QuuuQ is able to offer the full range of travel services you may expect including, but not limited to:

  • Taxi in Melrose, Darnick or Newstead
  • Serving Tweedbank Rail Station
  • Local and long distance
  • Rail and airport transfers
  • Ancestry tracing tours
  • Sight seeing tours
  • Card payment accepted

I am operating at my most efficient when the journey starts, ends or simply passes through or very close to Melrose, Newstead or Darnick including the Tweedbank train station and it is then that I can offer the best savings over the standard metered fare.

Do not take it for granted that the fare will be discounted but be confident you will never be over charged. I apply my own formula to the official metered fare for the journey as set out and enforced by the Scottish Borders council and it is likely that savings will be offered on any qualifying journey.

The QuuuQ taxicab

The Seat Toledo. Not a top of the range limousine by any means. Simply an honest reliable mid sized family car that handles the variables of being a taxi in Melrose surprisly well.

It has a large boot and enough space for four average sized passengers, although I do concede that the rear middle seat would soon lose some appeal on a longer journey.

Changing the work life balance

As an independent taxi operator I have always strived to undertake any booking I have accepted personally. This remains my goal but I now concede that I am unable to take a booking for just any old time of the 24 hour day.

All too often I have found myself still driving at well after midnight and then struggling to be available to start work again at my personal target time of 8am.

The QuuuQ taxicab will now be aimed at providing service to Melrose, Newstead, Darnick and the Tweedbank train station between 0800hrs and 1800hrs daily with a limited flexibility available.

Quote requests for travel outside of the stated hours shall be considered or I may simply recommend another operator.
