Swift Taxis and Private Hire Ltd was originally formed in 1991 with just 2 taxis. The directors saw the need for a cleaner, more efficient taxi service with courteous drivers, something that seemed to be lacking in the town.  In November 2003, Swift became a Limited Company. In December 2006 Swift moved premises, from Southtown Road to  Gapton Industrial Estate, where its current directors, Catherine Sanders & Michael Smith,  currently run with a fleet of about 110 vehicles ranging from cars up to 26 tonnes HGVs.

With a steady and controlled expansion Swift Taxis now operates more than 80 taxi, private hire cars, 8-seater minibuses, all while still maintaining a personal service. With many years of experience providing taxis for a number of local authorities, colleges and schools, we consider that we provide probably the most stable and reliable passenger transport services in Norfolk.  

Our VOSA approved MOT workshop is equipped to MOT cars, vans and motorbikes.  We also offer the latest  online MOT booking system.    

With our team of highly skilled professional technicians you can trust that all of our taxis, minibuses, private hire cars  are as safe and reliable as they can be. Our teams of professional and courteous taxi drivers, all of whom regularly carry children and the elderly throughout Norfolk have all obtained their CRB certificate from the police service. We take pride in ensuring that your taxi journey will be as safe and enjoyable as possible.
