I have decided to write something Real about the Company and how it all started.....

The Owner Mr T is as good a place to start as any other so here it goes.

Mr T started to worked for Comfi Coaches around 1962 then he brought the company in 1967 changed the name to Comfi Cars as we still know it  today, by 1978 he set up 3 further companies Abbey Cars - Concorde Cars and Advance cars andthen in 1981 he set up 1st Class Cars.

By 1984 he owned 123 Company cars including 3 Rolls Royce's 2 Daimlers and 7 Coaches. He arranged free coach tours locally for the elderly once a year, and was on a BBC interview on how 1 man's hard work created one of the largest private-hires companies in the south of England.
He sold Advance cars - Concorde Cars in 1985 and then 1st Class Cars which was his baby in 1988 as it got to large for one person and put much stress on his family life. Mr T carried on with Comfi Cars and Abbey Cars.
Comfi Cars was running Corporate client's and Abbey the general day to day work then in 2001  when he  amalgamated Abbey Cars and Comfi Cars in to one and selling the trading name Abbey Cars and 1 telephone number in 2002  approximately.

1st Class Cars was sold again in 1994, Mr T then bought 1st Class Cars back in December 2010 when they had major trading issues and financial difficulties, he bought the vehicles and kept all the staff to serve their existing Client base. Buying 1st Class Cars back did NOT come hassle free mind you Mr T had been taking legal action with the former owner until recently where the court found in his favour. Even now he's at the office every day.

It seems nothing will stop him from making sure the company Logistics are running on time.

Mr T is a proud man and takes pride in hard work and having a successful company. A company is only as good as its staff and the service it provides.

We still have members of staff that have been working with him for over 35 Years.
Our staff and drivers that are loyal and diligent not only to the company but to our clients and we hope to continue this level of service.
