Solway scores historic “three-peat” at QSi Awards

Solway Private Hire has done it again! For the third year running, the Silloth, Cumbria-based company has won the prestigious Gold award in the Community Category of the Professional Driver QSi Awards, the only national awards for UK taxi and private hire operators.

Professional Driver magazine editor Mark Bursa said: “The company’s commitment to its local town of Silloth has been well documented in its two previous wins. But this year, Solway Private Hire was really pushed to the limit. Cast your mind back to last winter and the devastating floods that hit rural Cumbria.”

“With bus services cancelled and roads blocked with debris or submerged, Solway Private Hire became the town’s transport lifeline, getting people to work and children to school despite the weather chaos. A truly outstanding effort.”

Mark Bursa continued: “Without the company, the remote seaside town of Silloth would probably grind to a halt. Solway Private Hire’s only concern to its customers. It’s more a family than a business, delivering extraordinary service beyond the call of duty – and sorting out the bill over a cup of tea and a chat.”
