At Gold Band Taxis, we’re Christchurch’s total taxi transport solutions provider.Take 5 minutes to tell us what you need, and we’ll work with you to deliver a solution that meets your (and your business’s) needs – whatever that is.
Choice of vehicles
From our environmentally friendly hybrid cars, to our maxi vehicles for wheelchair customers (and everything in between), our broad range of vehicles can help get you going – anywhere, any time!
Choice of Booking Systems (personal, automated, smartphone & online)
At Gold Band Taxis, we have worked hard to offer you transport and booking solutions that will suit your needs . . . and we’ve got some real winners, purely so that you can have the best, and most seamless, experience possible!
By Phone (03 3795-795)
If you’re from Christchurch, you probably know our number: it’s one of the best-known, well-recognised numbers in this city! It’s used to book more than 500,000 taxis every year! . . . and that’s just our phone bookings!
The phone line is quick and easy. It offers you either:
- A fully-automated, menu-prompted booking system (Cabcall); or
- Allows you to speak to a “real person” if you need that little bit of extra help and service.
Cabcall is available for businesses too, with a number of Christchurch’s largest corporates and organisations reporting fantastic results as we have rolled out customised solutions for them.
Whether you’re a personal customer, or if you’re in business (whatever business!), call our Sales Consultant today (022 499 1795) to talk about Cabcall
Smartphone Booking “App”
We still operate Christchurch’s first real-time smartphone booking “app”. We rolled it out in July 2013, with a huge uptake in app bookings, right from the start. After all, with an app, you become the dispatcher! You don’t have to wait for anyone in our call centre to answer your call or email a booking to your taxi – you (via the “app”) interact directly with our dispatch software! And you receive an immediate booking number, to confirm that your booking has been received and made.
What’s more, you can also track the cab as it approaches you, on the screen map! And, if you’re booking for a child or vulnerable person, you can watch the cab take the passenger from you to their destination – now that’s peace of mind! . . . And no other Christchurch company can offer that service!
eCab – for real-time, online bookings!
In 2004 we turned on our real-time, online booking system. Targeted initially at our hotel and motel customers, we soon discovered that more and more users jumped at the chance to use this service. Now we can set up your business, and charge fares back to your account, without your staff having to carry or handle paper vouchers. And, just as with the “app”, you can watch your taxi come to your door using our exclusive online GPS tracking technology – meaning that you can keep working until the last minute, saving time and making the most of your investment in your staff.
Again, as with the “app”, if there’s someone – or something – precious travelling without you, you can keep an eye on them all the way to their destination, using the same technology.
Automated bookings now account for around 40% of total bookings with Gold Band Taxis!
