  • Having worked in the Crystal Palace area as a minicab driver for some years, I became increasingly concerned with the general decline in standards of minicab companies in and around the area. I used to own and run a minicab company in the past. Numerous customers and drivers have urged me to start up business again and this I have done with the establishment of Queens Cars, based at The Quality Hotel in Church Road. Queens Cars is a 24 hours controlled minicab firm and, as in the past, priority is given to all journeys that have been pre-booked. Our aim is to provide clients with the best service available. I look forward to serving local residents and inyite you to contact me, Les Case, for a quality minicab service at:
