What our clients say about us

"We are loving your service - thanks!"

"Driving Miss Daisy has been a huge help to my family. As we are all working full time, it’s hard to get dad to appointments. Driving Miss Daisy has taken all the worry out of that for us. They take dad and look after him at the appointments and then take him home again, just as we would do. If a wheelchair is required, they provide it as part of the service. An excellent, warm and friendly service for sure."

"Driving Miss Daisy helps our Care Home transport residents to and from appointments and also provides an invaluable escorting service when it is needed. They are always punctual, friendly and efficient and their vehicles are well appointed, safe and cater for wheelchairs as well. They are a trusted part of our service for our residents and I can thoroughly recommend them."

"Driving Miss Daisy is absolutely fantastic, very professional and caring"

"Thanks for your service - Dad reports he is very happy and I like the clear invoicing"

"Will definitely use you again, I always feel comfortable with your service"

"Thanks heaps for your amazing service - don't know what I would have done without you"

"After breaking my wrist, I relied on Driving Miss Daisy to get me to work. The drivers were all lovely, always on time and reliable. Life would have been a lot harder without them."

Service Description
Service Description
Based in Tauranga since 2007, we have five vehicles in the Bay of Plenty. All our vehicles are adapted to make travelling easier for people with reduced mobility. For those in wheelchairs, we have ramps or hoists in four of our vehicles.

Let us take you to your appointments, help you do your shopping, get you to your clubs and social activities or simply take you out for a drive and a coffee. We can also provide a wheelchair for anyone who wants to go out but isn't confident on their feet. If possible, we try to provide the same driver each time you use us so you can feel really comfortable with our service.

Our drivers hold a current P endorsement and first aid certificate and have been police vetted. Most also have backgrounds in caregiving or nursing so can provide whatever help you need.

We are NZTA licensed, hold a contract with the BOP DHB and are also a registered ACC provider. If you are entitled to subsidised transport services, ask your case manager for us by name.

In addition to local trips, we can also take you further afield, for example to Auckland, Waikato or Rotorua hospitals or airports.

Driving Miss Daisy BOP is not just a pick up and drop off taxi - we offer a superior service and provide the extra care our clients need if family cannot be there. We will accompany you to your appointment if you wish and report back to family or carers; we can do your shopping and unpack it for you at home; we will run errands and generally provide whatever assistance is needed. Our drivers love to go the extra mile.

Invoices can be sent to family if preferred, to relieve any financial stress

We are a small service so bookings are essential, please

Let us get you there with care.

Contact Gerard on 027 607 7354 or 0800 363 000 for further information or to make a booking.
