How we started
Your Local Car has a history which goes back to 1996. Formerly Mytchett Cars, the Company was founded by Janet and Alan White. They noticed a gap in the market when they tried to book a taxi to Frimley Park Hospital and found it difficult to find a company that would be able to take them at short notice with the reliability that they wanted. This event highlighted the need for a reliable service to be available for the local Mytchett community and surrounding areas. They worked hard together, establishing a very good service and the work they started continues today.
14 years later Janet and Alan decided it was time to retire and they passed the Company down to their son Peter White.
Peter, having lived around the family business for the previous 14 years understood the commitment required to service the current customers and has great ambitions to continue with the Company expansion.
After driving for one year for Mytchett Cars he was shocked at the amount of potential customers that were being turned away and he was eager to service them. He decided something had to be done and developed a business plan to grow the Company. He created employment within the area and worked alongside the Local Authorities to raise the standard of the Taxi and Private Hire services within the Borough. It was at this point in 2011 that he re-branded the company to Your Local Car, the new name was developed indicating that it was a personal service just for you or your Company.
Your Local Car is currently still expanding by adding new vehicles and more drivers to the fleet.
Owner, Peter White is looking to run a fleet of 50 vehicles by 2020. This will not only generate employment but will also maintain the friendly, personal and honest service that customers receive today.
