Peggy is an Austin FX4 Fairway who spent her first 15 years working as a London Taxi (black cab).
We purchased her in 2013 when she was forced to retire due to the emission rules in London.
She was completely stripped inside and refitted with cream leather seats and new red carpet. The outside was stripped back to the bare metal, and professionally repaired and re-sprayed in Old English White.
As Peggy is plain cream, we envisage her being an ideal choice as a second car for bridesmaids as she will match well with the majority of our fleet, and we offer a substantial discount for multiple car bookings. She can of course be hired as the bridal car and is more competitively priced than our landaulette models.
The 'for hire' sign on the roof has been replaced with a 'just married' sign, a nice finishing touch. We have also added a flip down seat in the front passenger bay, meaning that the car can take a maximum of 6 passengers...although the front seat is quite confined, so we wouldn't recommend it for long journeys. Peggy is able to accommodate a wheelchair.
We decided to purchase a 'WED' registration number for Peggy, keeping the prefix letter of 'P' from her original registration. Consequently we decided her name should start with P, so we named her Peggy after my husband's late aunt.
All the guests remarked on the car and general consensus of opinion was that it was the perfect car for this occasion! I would gladly recommend Shirley Chaffeurs. Thank you for adding something special to a very special day.Mrs Hughes
I would just like to say that the car was amazing and exceeded our expectations. Bryan our driver was so friendly and helpful he made a very emotional and stressful day go with ease and calm. He was very helpful which was so important to us as my father has limited mobility and needed help when getting in and out of the car. We want to say a very big thank you and would recommend your service.Mr and Mrs McSweeney
The journey to the ceremony with my father was both relaxing & very special which is just what was needed.Mr & Mrs Liss
