About Us


Owner Mark Jones has been a private hire driver for more than 30 years in Maidstone. He moved to the Maidstone area in 1984 and started working for a local Maidstone Taxi company. After several years of working for other taxi & private hire company's in Maidstone, Mark became disillusioned with the way Taxi Company’s operated. Mark decided to throw his hat in the ring and started his own Taxi Company in Maidstone, Kent. Sapphire Cabs & Couriers was born on 21st August 2003 and was named after the birthstone for that date. Sapphire Cabs & Couriers are run the way Mark thinks a taxi, private hire & Courier company should be run with the emphasis on customer service and satisfaction. Mark's business ethos has been proved right, with thousands of satisfied customers in and around Maidstone and Kent.
