On June 8th we marked the tenth anniversary of our first job. At that time there was just Bob, and our very first Renault traffic – On that Friday he completed just three airport transfers
How things have changed! We now work with 36 company owned cars, and another 25 owner driven cars, and this number keeps on increasing with growth that Apollo sees year on year!
In 2008, Bob answered all calls in the car (it was still legal then), and kept a diary to record bookings. We now have a modern office right beside Maidstone East station, work with the most up to date booking and despatch software, operated by 12 friendly and helpful staff.
We now complete approximately 5000 jobs a week – Last week we completed over 400 airport transfers…
From older drivers to new…
“I first started Apollo in July 2013. I went to see Bob, but he was busy on a job where there wasn’t many drivers on the fleet at that point. I managed to speak with Bob the next day and he was so excited to see a driver willing to work; I can still picture his face now. I quit my other job, and joined Apollo within a week. I still remember the first time I went on holiday – Bob was worried that I wouldn’t come back – but I did, and still here 5 years on!”
“I started Apollo in July 2017. The best part about my job is interacting with all the customers, and having a chat with them – I’m a bit of a chatterbox! My most memorable journey with Apollo is when I picked up Tim Rose from Heathrow Airport (he was the voice of Admiral Ackbar in Star Wars). I waited at Heathrow for my customer, and when I collected him, he mentioned that he had been to a Star Wars convention. You never know who you’re going to pick up; no two days are the same!”
We’ve worked hard…
We’ve had a lot of fun…
We’ve participated in charity events…
And we’ve enjoyed every moment!
Apollo Taxis would like to say a big thank you to each and every customer that have contributed to our success.
We are extremely grateful to all of our customers, drivers, and staff for all of the support over the past ten years, and are looking forward to continuing the success story.
Here’s to the next 10 years!
