Great Lake Taxis


Are you running your cars on Christmas Day? I would like to go from 4 Joshua Place Ranga tira Park to 132B Elizabeth Street about 3 in the afternoon? Angela
Thumbs down to one of your drivers who very nearly ran me over as I was walking home from my job yesterday. I was on the foot path outside a property where some of your drivers live on Scannell street at about 4:10 pm yesterday (Friday the 20th of September). I was walking along the foot path when all of a sudden one of your drivers took his foot off the break and was backing towards me at a rapid speed only to stop abruptly and then continue reversing several times meaning that I was having to step onto the road to get away from him as I was trying to get past. He nearly hit me about 3 times, I put my hand out and tapped the boot of the cab and he still didn’t stop or notice that I was there. When I turned and looked I realised the driver was too busy looking at himself and fixing his moustache in the mirror to notice that I was walking on the foot path directly behind his car. He didn’t even stop or notice I was there. What if this was to happen to a small child walking home from school as there are several schools in the area? I’m disgusted and furious as this absolutely could have been avoided and your driver was ignorant and could have seriously injured me.
What a joke!! Offer a service and your number is engaged!!! #cantbeasseddoingmyjob
Have you guys taken phone off the hook?
Horrible customer service 10/10 will not use your service again 😊
