Sadler's Taxis is one of the oldest family run businesses in the Epping Forest District area established around
1869/1870 by Mr William Sadler. William used the stables and yards either side of the old crown public house in Loughton
now the site of the Marks & Spencer's and the NU Bar. Our taxis have provided the area with a first class safe affordable service from
the early horse drawn hackneys to the areas first petrol engine taxi driven in the 1920s by Mr F.P Sadler (grandfather to Phil & Peter Sadler
two of the current directors). Upon leaving the army after the Second World War Mr F P Sadler junior known as Phil took over control of the firm
and with his brother John expanded the business with London black taxis licensed by the carriage office. Together they began to build a modern
reliable taxi service from their taxi rank at Loughton Station.
Telephone calls were taken at Phil's house and jobs were dispatched by an early Pye two way radio system.By the 1970s Sadler's Taxis moved into the old bus canteen at Loughton Station. The introduction of private hire cars proved to be very popular with the public. In 1983 Phil & Peter Sadler took over upon the retirement of their father (Phil) they carried on with the same values and continued to expand the business using the latest technology available. Sadler's Taxis moved to their present office in Loughton Station 2001. In sept 2006 Phil & Peter Sadler were pleased to welcome Mr Paul Nelson and Mr Tim Western to the board of directors. A state of the art computer system has been introduced incorporating sat nav and passenger call back to our modern fleet of taxis.We will continue to embrace modern technology to provide a first class service to our customers old and new.
