This Manchester taxi company will do shopping pickups and drop-offs for anyone self-isolating – and it’s free for over 65s

During these turbulent times, we’re seeing an increase in people and businesses looking to do the right thing, and offer a helping hand to the more vulnerable members of society. 

This can be as simple as offering up your place in the queue at a supermarket to someone who needs it more, and making sure your neighbours are ok. 

Manchester’s leading taxi firm Street Cars have gone a step further than most.

They’ve announced that not only are they willing to do shopping pickups and drop-offs for anyone self-isolating or in quarantine, and not only this they will do this for free for anyone over the age of 65. 

So if you’re concerned about the impact of coronavirus on your ability to buy much-needed supplies, you can rely on Street Cars to get you where you need to get to, quickly, safely and with minimal fuss. 

Street Cars has been a reliable fixture in Manchester for almost two decades, earning a reputation for providing a professional taxi service to the people of the city. This saw them named as the official private hire taxi partner at Manchester Airport last year, expanding to 800 drivers across the region and providing 120 jobs. 

They also have a range of vehicles available for all needs, including hybrid vehicles, people carriers and executive Mercedes models with free WiFi and the day’s paper. 

You’re in safe hands with Street Cars. They’re woven into the fabric of Manchester and care about the people who make up this great city. 

So if you know anyone who’s in quarantine or self-isolating, or more importantly anyone who’s over 65 and worried about how they’ll be able to get to the shops, make sure to let them know about this great gift to the people of Manchester. 

This current crisis will end, but we all need to come together and help our neighbours and fellow city-dwellers. With Manchester companies like Street Cars leading the way, we’ll come out the other side stronger and more connected. 

Don’t panic, but be cautious and look out for the people around you, particularly the most vulnerable.

To take advantage of this offer of help from Street Cars, just ring them on 0161 228 7878 and see what they can do to help. 

They’re also based at Manchester Coach Station on Chorlton Street, so you could also go in to speak to them in person – but be sure to keep safe: avoid touching your face, wash your hands after using door handles and follow the guidelines and advice given out by NHS UK. 

If this offer doesn’t necessarily apply to you, it’s more than likely you know someone who it will help.
