About us

Old fashioned courtesy combined with the latest technology means that we have continued to lead the private hire and minicab services industry, providing customers with the minicab service that they demand.

Based in Oakwood, North London, we started operating our passenger car and minicab service over 35 years ago. Since then Oakwood Car Services has grown to become one of London’s most respected minicab and passenger car companies.

Licensed by the Public Carriage Office, we put the safety first with all our minicabs going through continuous inspection and all drivers carrying identity cards for your peace of mind.

We understand the value of your time and ensure that your mini-cab arrives ontime, every time. We have a mixed fleet of mini-cabs comprising of Saloon (Sedan), Estate (Station Wagon) and MPV (Passenger Minivans) available for groups of 5 to 8 passengers. The MPV minicab is also a good choice if you need extra room for bulky items that may not fit into an estate minicab.

We also offer a range of luxury executive chauffeur driven cars for those occasions when you wish to travel in style. Choose from Mercedes and Jaguar executive minicabs for groups of up to 4 people. For groups executive travel, we offer Chrysler Grand Voyager luxury MPV mini-cab. For more information about our mini-cabs please view the vehicles page.

Customer Reviews

I have never been so well informed about my provided services as with oakwood minicab’s. I’ve received a text to tell me my minicab has been despatched, a text to tell me it’s 2 minutes away and a text with tracking map link also driver profile. Last one is great peace of mind if your ordering your minicab for your elderly mother. I have read the negative feedback and honesty I hope to never get those driver’s but to cherry pick would be unfair. They honestly can’t do anything more they have stuck themselves out .

Simon Mcfarland

Punctual and professional. They even have a tracking service for their minicabs, and charge a reasonable and fair price for their minicabs. A+ would use again!

Hus Zekayi

Always arrive on time and have helpful drivers. The tracking service so you can see how far away your minicab is is very helpful.
