Take Me has strengthened its presence in the Midlands with the acquisition of Nuneaton-based Direct Taxis.

This strategic acquisition adds a further 80 cars to the fast-growing Take Me national fleet. Under the deal, Direct Taxis will work closely with the Solihull-based arm of Take Me.

Direct Taxis manager Lee Roberts is staying with the business, saying he was enthusiastic about the potential for collaboration with the Take Me Solihull team, including significant growth opportunities.

Take Me’s national footprint now encompasses major UK cities such as Plymouth, Leicester, Milton Keynes, Stoke, Birmingham, and Darlington.

The Direct Taxis deal is the second major acquisition of 2024 for Take Me Group, which purchased Brighton-based Southern Taxis in January.

Take Me CEO David Hunter said: “It was great to complete the purchase of Direct Taxis in Nuneaton, an 80-car fleet managed by Lee Roberts. Lee is looking forward to have access to the Take Me Solihull team to expand in and around his area.”

Roberts added: “As part of Take Me, we’re excited to embark on a journey of expansion that promises mutual benefits for our drivers and customers alike. With access to the resources and support of the Take Me Solihull team, we’re poised to enhance our services, broaden our reach, and deliver unparalleled experiences to our valued clientele.”

He continued: “This partnership heralds a new era of growth and opportunity for Direct Taxis, one that is bound to elevate our business to new heights.”

Hunter said 2024 was already looking like it would be another busy year for the teams at Take Me. He said: “This year is shaping up to be a turbocharged ride for Take Me as we rev up to welcome several new taxi businesses into our ever-expanding network. It will be a year of growth, innovation, and seamless rides.”

Take Me is keen to get taxi business owners to join the group, which it describes as a “collaborative platform” offering a wealth of resources, including shared knowledge, insightful information, and practical support.

“By becoming a part of this vibrant community, business owners gain access to a collective pool of ideas, effective marketing strategies, and crucial financial advice,” Hunter said. “The group serves as a hub for exchanging hints and tips, fostering a collaborative environment that propels individual businesses forward.”
