Who Are We
Welcome to Three’s & Four’s Website. The Company was started in 1992 as a partnership by Roland and Christine Blanks. The operation based at Erith Station was formally part of the Abba Dart Group which was being sold by its owners for financial reasons. Roland Blanks had a vast experience in the Mini-Cab industry (now formally called Private Hire) as he had worked for Handicars of Lewisham for many years as a main line controller.
Handicars was a market leader in the supply of Mini-Cabs and their attitude to customers was along the right lines. The rest of the industry was in a bad way and the attitudes of both staff and drivers towards their customers was, to say the least, indifferent.
Upon starting in February 1992, it was obvious that the attitudes in and around Erith were as it was in many areas, and Roland realised it was time for improvement. This became apparent several weeks after the onset of trading when a complaint was received. A customer had been dropped off at a house in Blackheath, the car had driven up the circular driveway but found the exit forward was blocked by several cars.
It became apparent that the vehicle had no reverse gear so the clients had to push the car back down the drive and onto the road. Needless to say, the driver was laid off the following day and told he could return, with a new attitude, and a roadworthy vehicle.
The Company was originally called Best Cab Car Service and traded under that name until 1998 when it was decided to segregate the Cash & Account work by registering two companies. More about the origination of the Company name in the “areas we cover” section. The company responsible for cash work, Three’s and Four’s Ltd, was formulated on 3rd September 1998 and is owned by its two shareholders, Roland & Christine Blanks. lt has two Director’s, Managing Director is Mr Kevin Connolly and the Company Secretary is Mrs Christine Blanks. Both have been with the company since its onset in 1992.
