Formed in 1999 by veterans of the taxi industry, our taxi division today is one of the leading funders of traditional black 'hackney' carriages, the Mercedes Vito and an ever growing range of conversion taxis from numerous manufacturers.
The division offers owner drivers, proprietors and fleets of all sizes a wide range of finance plans for buying purpose built new and used taxis. Finance is provided by a nationwide network of dealers and direct.
▪ Hire Purchase
A fixed rate finance option that allows the balance financed and interest to be paid in equal repayments. You can also choose to pay an ‘option to purchase fee’ at the end of the agreement if you want to own the vehicle
▪ Lease Purchase
A fixed rate finance option that helps you or your business with cash flow. There is also an option to add a balloon payment that lowers your monthly outgoings during the agreement
▪ Finance Lease
Ownership of the asset remains with Shawbrook and at the end of a finance lease the assets are sold and you receive the major share of the proceeds.
▪ Driver to Driver Finance
Available in certain areas. We can arrange the finance for the purchase of taxis direct from another driver at competitive rates
▪ License Plate Finance
In certain parts of the UK we may be able to assist in financing the purchase of an already licensed vehicle, or of an interest in the business which holds the taxi license along with the taxi.
Based in West Malling, Kent, the taxi team work solely in this important market ensuring a fast and personal services at all times.
