If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in a no-fault accident, FYLDE COAST REPLACEMENT TAXIS (FCRT) are the best company to help get you back on the road as quickly as possible.

We will get you on the road as quickly as any other company, arrange to have your vehicle moved to a reputable repair centre (your preferred centre if you wish). The replacement vehicle will be tested in your borough and your operating equipment (meter, data head, plates, etc) will be in/on the replacement vehicle. When your vehicle is repaired it will be retested (and therefore a new 6/12month test certificate) and the equipment transferred back to your vehicle.

We work very closely with a firm of lawyers who will handle all the legal aspects of your case, they arrange for an independent insurance engineer to inspect your vehicle, when the third party insurer give us the go ahead repairs begin.

If you are injured, in the accident we, through our solicitors, can arrange treatment and compensation.

If you have a no-fault accident most insurance companies tell you that you must use their services for the claim, that is not true, you can use anybody you wish, as long as you inform your insurance company.

We hear stories of taxi replacement companies providing a replacement vehicle often 3 or 4 or more days later, not tested and no equipment transferred. At FCRT we pride ourselves in doing everything for you, at absolutely no cost to yourselves.

FCRT was set up more than 10 years ago, during which time we have concentrated on taxi companies on the Fylde Coast so that we can perfect our processes, we believe we have done that and therefore we feel comfortable in expanding our areas. We currently deal with companies or individuals on the Fylde Coast, parts of Greater Manchester, parts of Merseyside and we have done work in Lancaster, South Lakes, Barrow and Whitehaven. We believe it is time to roll out our services to all who wish to use us, in the North of England and parts of North Wales.

FCRT was set up by an ex taxi driver/owner and most of our employees are ex taxi drivers, with the odd one still working part time, so you will be dealing with people who know the taxi business.

We really don’t want you to suffer an accident but if you do FCRT will ease your pain.
