A family-run West Midlands taxi firm has moved into larger premises to cope with growth.

Local Radio Cars, which was acquired by Andy Williams in March 2022, has since then doubled its driver numbers to around 100, and has moved to a new office in a shopping centre in the Birmingham suburb of Chelmsley Wood. The bigger premises are needed to house nine new recruits in the back-room team.

Williams said: “This move will allow us to be at the heart of the community and allow our customers to put names to faces. We want to retain the personal touch as we grow. Since acquiring Local Radio Cars, our team has invested heavily in advertising and incentives for customers and drivers.

The company services Chelmsley Wood, Smiths Wood, Castle Bromwich, Coleshill and the surrounding areas, and it is looking to grow further over the next couple of years. “Our ambition is to improve on our recent growth and create more opportunities for our community, either on the road or in the office,” said Williams.

“Even with the popularity of ridesharing apps, such as Uber, we strongly believe that there will always be a place for independent, family-run taxi services,” he added.
