I used to use Dockhead Cars - they usually had people carriers.

Space, I can recommend you Express National Carriers. They're based in Long Lane, are very reliable (at least the few times I used them), and you always have impeccably clean cars and courteous drivers.
Downside is you have to call them and can sometimes have to wait for some time before they can send you a car. Their number is 020 7403 3333.
Another option is the well-known Addison Lee. They're more expensive than ENC, but have more cars, so if you're in a hurry it's a good choice as well.

No connection apart from being a satisfied customer.

Hi at our office in Borough we use/used 2 local firms London Executive in Gt Suffolk Street and Waterloo Cars in Southwark Bridge Road. Both seem ok to me if this is of any use to you :)

Being a regular for years from elephant cabs I phoned a few weeks back for a cab from bartholomew street to surrey quays. I was horrified to find out the fare had increased to 9.00 i told the driver to phone the office to check as i am sure that was incorrect, the controller told him that was the correct price. The entire journey took 5/6 minutes.
I told the driver that was the last time i would be using the company..phoned another company to get home, loaded with bags...journey cost 6.00!
I am now using express cars and they are brilliant , nice new cars and far cheaper!

I can second that. Dockhead got me out of a bind a few times, especially last Christmas when I needed to transport a tree. All the other places I rang were quoting me 3 - 4 times more!

I would certainly also give my backing to Addison Lee, having always found them to be an exceptionally professional operation on the numerous occasions that we have used them.
