What is Cab Call?

Southend Radio Cars was formed in September 1971, over the years that followed the company successfully grew to be Southend on Sea’s biggest private hire circuit. With the success of the company growing year on year, customers reached out from all over and so expansion became inevitable. In 2008 Southend Radio Cars joined forces with Bestax Taxi Company of Rayleigh, and later Associated Radio Cars of Southend and RT Taxis of Rayleigh.
