Used them 3 times so far, mainly for getting a lift to & from the airport. They are mostly on-time. Only once we have a wait a little bit due to traffic and back to back bookings. Other than that, no issues with Mr Maxi Cab. Will definitely use their services again.
My Mates and I hired MrMaxicab Services when we were touring Singapore. Terrific customer service. Muhammad and his team did all they could to accommodate to our requests and we were not disappointed! Ever so polite and punctual. You made yourself a friend! Cheers mate!!
This is an extremely unprofessional company. After making booking, I had to chase repeatedly before reverting with details of driver and car. Worst, the car didn't even turn up on the morning as booked and driver wasn't contactable, leaving me almost missing my flight. And up till then, the company hasn't even bothered to contact me to explain what happen nor apologize. Pls do not even use this service.
We came to Singapore for a short vacation during the Thanks Giving Holidays, We must say that we were extremely pleased with the services rendered by Mohamed & his group of drivers. These guys are truly define the epitome of service. Always smiling and ever so helpful. We accidentally paid Mohamed and extra of $100.He came back and returned it We didn't even know we paid him extra!
Mr maxicab is the epitome of perfection. From brilliant friendly service to punctuality even when it was a last minute job from me. I can't imagine how amazing his service is for non last min jobs! Well recommended!
