IN 1966, GREAT BRITAIN REALLY WAS AT THE TOP OF HER GAME. WE HAD: ELEVEN CONQUERING FOOTBALLERS, FOUR LADS FROM LIVERPOOL, ONE COCKNEY CHARMER, ONE SUPER MODEL, ONE SECRET AGENT, A MILLION ICONIC MINI'S....AND ONE BRAND NEW MINI CAB COMPANY!
IT WAS ONE DAY LONG AGO IN 1966....
Carlton Cars celebrating 50 years of trading this year open a new branch at Bickley Station on Thursday 17th February 2016.
Owner Fred Leaney 76, first started trading from his home in Rochester Way, Welling after buying a new car! Opening his first office in a portacabin at the rear of Upper Wickham Lane Welling. Carlton Cars now has over 200 staff working 24/7/365 days per year and never closing in the last 50 years, even for a lunch break, or the day England won the World Cup! These days, its very much a family business with daughters and grandson running the operation on a daily basis Carlton Cars complete 1500 journeys a day.
We would like to thank all of our loyal customers, who have been among our passengers over the last 50 years, and we hope you will continue to use us for the next 50. We've witnessed some great and some tragic events in the last 50 years, and as they say in all the X Factors and the Cooking Programmes, It's been a long journey. Millions and millions of miles we'd say!
