Karen was born in London in 1964, but moved to Swindon in 1967 where she was brought up and spent her formative years.
She moved to the Waterside in 1993, where she lives with her two children, now aged 22 and 19. She has 30 years’ experience in office management, accounts and customer service.
However, in 2009 she recognised that she needed a complete career change, so when her son saw a notice recruiting drivers for a local private hire company she followed it up immediately.
She applied for her Hackney Carriage and Private Hire badge and commenced taxi-ing part time in June 2009.
Finding that she really enjoyed this change of direction, she soon became a full time driver, additionally taking on out of hours work and standing in to cover holidays and sickness.
Karen has studied and passed the Level 2 NVQ in Road Passenger Vehicle Driving and Level 2 BTEC in Transporting Passengers by Taxi and Private Hire.
A change of ownership at the company where she worked, prompted Karen to take the plunge and set up her own private hire company, and so KazCarz was born. Her aim is to provide a good quality, friendly, reliable service whilst keeping fares affordable; well below those of the larger companies operating in the area.
She feels it is important to be there when the customer needs transport, without them having to worry about the time. By offering a 24 hour service, our customers can go out and enjoy themselves safe in the knowledge that they will be able to get transport home when they need it.
So welcome to KAZCARZ, we hope we can assist you.
