12/12/2013 Am I surprised because on Tuesday of this week my wife and daughter and I got off a cruise ship to take a taxi to the airport. I left my jacket with my car keys and hat and gloves in the cab and didn't notice it missing until check-in at the airport. With help of local county sheriff deputy who called the dispatcher of the Friendly Checker Cab Co. who put my loss over the radio within a half hour down the road a half mile from the airport the taxi driver was waving my jacket out of his window so that anyone missing it would notice --I thought pretty smart on his part.--- the only thing we knew was that the driver was from Haiti not being real sure of the taxi company or being able to recognize the driver. He I am quite sure made a special trip back to the airport JUST to deliver it. My daughter had taken a cab back to the ship canal and was able to talk to several who really wanted to find out who ETC so give the company 6 STARS and the County Sheriff his wishes for Christmas. THANKS Friendly Checker CAB Company--besides the driver was the most courteous and a young family man interested in talking etc He apologized to both me and my wife for not checking if we left anything BUT was entirely my own fault and being in a hurry. My advice is to note the number and name of the cab and even the driver from now on--my daughter found out that people leave even laptops etc in cabs and other means of transportation. I plan on writing a letter of thanks and donating to the HELP's charities as a result. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all involved. Thanks AGAIN!! Duane Lorsung of Long Prairie, MN
While having mixed reviews, this company seemed to be more favorable than others I researched. When calling the company, I allowed extra time for traffic and potential glitches. I was told the cab would arrive in 20 min, and in actuality it took closer to 35 min. The driver called me to let me know he was 5 min away, and was a very friendly and courteous fellow originally from Haiti. The cab was spotless and the ride was smooth (despite some traffic), and arrived at the airport with plenty of time to spare. Well done.
Called this cab on a rainy Florida day, was there within 10 minutes! I was suprised with how fast he came. As I proceeded to tell him my destination not only did we arrive there within minutes, he even showed me a short cut! Didn't know cab drivers even did that! Overall the driver was very friendly and the cab was spotless and it was a great ride. I WILL call this cab again!
