Our history

On the 1st of February 1996, the late Peter Augustine Hogg made the decision to buy out the local taxi company in the beautiful border town of Jedburgh.

Peter had worked for the then current firm which he bought out as a driver for four years, before taking the decision to buy the taxis and accompanying video hire shop.

Over the first four years, the video shop expanded to incorporate a very busy confectionary and ice cream shop.  However, the decision finally came in 2000 to close the video, confectionary and ice cream shop to continue with the taxi company which was going from strength to strength.

When the taxi company was originally purchased, it consisted of four cars and two mini-buses.  However, by 2000, the fleet had grown considerably to a fleet size of almost 15 vehicles.

It was at this time that Peter decided the shop side of the business should be closed, and to concentrate solely on the transport side of the business, and the decision came to move from the Abbey Place shop to Old Bongate Mill.

The operation at Old Bonage Mill only lasted two years, as once again, with business flourishing, the vehicles outgrew the premises that we were in.  It was at this point, in 2002, that Scottish Borders Council offered us our current premises, which comfortably holds our 30 strong fleet, with plenty of room for future expansion.
