Editorial review from Citysearch 4/8/2016

Germantown cab is the worst cab company in Philadelphia, the office staff is rude and disrespectful, I believe they enjoy unjust enrichment because they are the only service in this area. It is a shame they way they treat the community at alarge will be riding Uber hence forth more

Editorial review from Citysearch 1/6/2016

One of their cabs double parked illegally in the middle of the street in my quiet, residential neighborhood, while the driver honked his horn repeatedly for over 10 minutes.\r \r When I called the company to say that if he didn't stop I was going to call the police, the dispatcher's only answer was to say, ""you're free to do that ma'am"" and to ask for the car #, which I gave her. \r \r No apology, no indication that the driver was out of line...great customer service Germantown Cab! Next time I won't wait--I'll just call the police. more

THIS IS THE WORST CAB COMPANY EVER!!!!! GHETTO, RATCHET, RUDE, UNPROFESSIONAL, IGNORANT AND ALL OF THE ABOVE. THE DISPATCHERS HAVE NO CLUE OF WHAT CUSTOMER SERVICE IS ALL ABOUT. I USED MY JOB PHONE TO PLACE AN ORDER FOR A CAB, THE NUMBER DIDN'T COME UP SO THE DISPATCHER SAYS UNBLOCK YOUR NUMBER AND HUNG UP ON ME, I KNOW MY JOB'S PHONE NUMBER, SO BECAUSE THE NUMBER DIDN'T APPEAR THEY COULDN'T SEND THE REQUEST OUT, AGAIN I KNOW MY JOB'S PHONE NUMBER. THE WORST CAB COMPANY EVER!!!!! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 2/21/2015

THIS IS BY FAR THE WORST CAB COMPANY IN PHILA. THE MANAGEMENT AS WELL AS THE DISPATCHERS AND THE DRIVERS ARE THE WORST PEOPLE EVER--I'VE EVEN HEARD THE DISPATCHERS CUSSING OUT THE DRIVERS. IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING THAT THE OPERATE IN THAT OLD FRAME OF MIND "" IF THE DRIVERS PAY THE DISPATCHERS A LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA, THEN THEY GET ALL THE WORK."" COREY, KIA, DONNA, TAKIA, ALL ARE THE WORST PEOPLE TO DEAL WITH AT THIS COMPANY. THEY WILL NEVER MAKE IT OUT IN CORPORATE AMERICA--MAYBE THAT'S WHY THEY WORK HERE!!! ALSO MOST OF THE EMPLOYEES ARE OFFENDERS OF SOME SORT. GHETTO CAB FOR GHETTO PEOPLE. THE OWNERS DON'T EVEN CARE AS LONG AS THEY GET THEIR MONEY!!! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/5/2014

Just got off the phone with the dispatcher. I have NEVER encountered such a rude receptionist in my life. All I can say is NEVER use this company. Since they serve the Germantown area of Philadelphia, I feel stuck. I saw the other poor reviews and didn't believe them. WELL BELIEVE THEM. They're chasing away money. She didn't know enough about me to get the ongoing cab job I needed. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/9/2013

I had an entirely satisfactory experience with Germantown Cab Co. - they took my reservation for a 4 a.m. pickup very professionally, called to let me know when the cab was nearly there (in plenty of time), and the driver was very good, personable and pleasant. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/24/2013

Took a germantown cab from Manayunk area to Soundgarden Hall and phone was left in cab. I used the locator and that's how i realized it was in the cab. The driver gave us his personal number when we got out so that we could call him back for a ride, which we never did. I called his cell phone the next day and he said he did not have the phone and so we called Germantown to report it and check the car. Management transferred me to a lady who was supposed to figure it out and call me back. 3 hours later and no call back, I called again and spoke to the rudest man I have ever dealt with. He cut me off multiple times and told me to let him finish speaking, so I did and it turned into him screaming at me because I said it was rude to not let your customers explain their issues. After he was screaming and saying nasty things to me he simply hung up on me. This is BY FAR one of the WORST services I have ever dealt with; not just the drivers but management and their workers, too. DO NOT RECOMMEND. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 1/6/2013

Do not use this company!!!!! They don't even have a website. This should say something about their professionalism. Fly by night bogus cab company. Greedy owners, unprofessional staff. Great mechanics. Shoddy work ethic. Lacks customer service skills. more

SO/SO 4/25/2012

I have had times when my cabs were extremely late. One time the Dispatcher with all the ignorance she could must hang up on me - I've had my words with her and I'm guessing because I was a frequent customer my rides seemed to be better. I will advise - visitng the Manayunk area or anywhere city avenue, they have a hard time knowing where to go so make sure you request a driver that knows where they are going and emphasize that 'YOUR NOT PAYING FOR IT'. more

Worst cab company ever 10/26/2011

The cab was 40 mins later even after i called 4hrs ahead of the time I needed the cab..The dispatcher Was RUDE and Unprofessional, and so was the SUPERVISOR who said he didnt have time to talk to me because he was busy..\r I dont know how this Company is even still in business But I will NEVER take this cab again..\r Not ONE apology from the staff or the driver(who arrived on the phone and help a conversation the whole ride).\r more

NEVER AGAIN!!! 8/4/2011

The one good thing I will say is that my driver arrived on time after setting up the ride the night before. After that, the entire trip to the airport was a complete disaster. Since this was a business trip that I was on, I wanted to pay for the ride with my company credit card as I do with other cab companies. When I didn't see a credit card reader, I asked the driver if he took credit cards. If he said no, then I would've found another way to get to the airport. He said, yes, but he didn't seem to happy about it. Even after I got in the cab, he asked me to go to an ATM first. Then, he said that he didn't have enough gas to get across town and needed to go the gas station. At that point, I got concerned about running late. He assured me that we had enough time. Then, the driver gets out of the cab and leaves the meter running. When I yell out of the door about turning the meter off, he responds ""You can turn it off"". Maybe the idea of hiring a cab has changed, but I'm pretty sure I'm paying HIM for the ride. I don't expect to have to do any work, so I made him turn the meter off. He says he'll charge me a flat rate to the airport and I ask how much. He says ""$50"". Keep in mind at this point, he still hasn't gone into the gas station to pay for any gas. At that point, I realize that $50 is way more than what I normally pay for a ride to the airport from where I was coming from - even with a 20% tip. I tell him that I'll give him $40. He agrees and goes to pay for the gas. When he comes out, he decides he doesn't want to take me anymore and calls for another cab. He still hasn't pumped any gas yet. At that point, I got pissed off and got out of the cab so I can walk 2 blocks back to my car to drive myself. As I'm pulling my bags out of the trunk, he's wasting my time trying to get me to stay and wait for the other cab, which was about half a mile to a mile away. Even if the cab was around the corner, there's no way I'm giving my business to a cab company like this. At the end, I barely made it in time for my flight. I would much rather ride SEPTA than give $1 to Germantown Cab. more

Worst Cab Ever 4/19/2011

Cabs are always late and the cabs reek of smoke. Worst of all, when I tried to call the company back to ask if the cab was still coming (1 hour LATE) the dispatch woman was AWFUL. She called me OBNOXIOUS for calling to ask where my cab was, when it was supposed to arrive an hour ago. I have never had a customer service rep be so downright rude in my life and I can't believe she still has a job. When I told her that I had been waiting an hour and forty five minutes, she told me that I was wrong and hung up on me. The cab NEVER showed up. All in all, it was the most unprofessional experience I have ever had with a taxi service, EVER. DO NOT USE THIS CAB COMPANY!!! more

NEVER USE THIS COMPANY! 2/9/2011

Firstable, a girl on the phone was not very friendly. I asked if she could call me back when she could arrange a cab for me and she said ok, never called me back.\r A cab arrived in 30 mins, which was ok since I was told so, but the driver was smoking in the taxi while waiting us coming out of our house. The window were broken and we had to bear the smell of smoke all way.\r This is not end of the story. I don't know if he did that to earn more money or just didn't know the way, but he kept going to wrong direction again and again and we stuck around our neighbor(Manayunk) for 30 min, while we needed to get to Center City within 30 min.\r \r Can't believe this happen before my very important business meeting. The guy should be fired.\r \r NEVER NEVER USE THIS COMPANY. if you don't have another choice, RATHER TAKE BUS OR TRAIN!!!!!! more

Late 1/30/2011

I called for a cab and was told a half hour or less. 45 minutes later I called to see if a cab was on its way, and they hadn't even sent one out yet. a half hour after that, one showed up at my door. I live a mile away from them. The cab smelled like smoke. Don't use this service unless you don't have a specific time to be somewhere. more

Unprofessional 1/20/2011

I have been picked up by their service and have smelled alcohol on the driver. Also their dispatch operator is always rude. more

horrible, horrible rude 1/18/2011

Rude, late, horrible service from start to finish. Try someone else if possible. Philadelphia does not serve folks without a car well at all. more

Thank You 1/17/2011

I would like to say that this company is one of the best around. I changed from Main Line Cab, they are very rude people. Germantown Cab have the nicest drivers. I would highly recommend them and the are very quick +++++++++ more

some times great some time not 5/5/2010

I think they have some really good drivers, and the their current manager is really nice, but its hit or miss. Midday seems pretty bad. Pros: Some times they are on time to the minute; nice drivers Cons: Some times they take hours, and the divers seem lost more

Ghetto service 3/19/2010

I can't believe this cab company is so ghetto I can't even find an e-mail address for them. They treat Germantown residents like trash, almost ensuring a cycle of poverty. Well, screw you, Germantown Cab! Most people who live in Germantown are decent people! You really have to step up your timeliness, dispatcher courtesy and attention to complaints. You're horrible! The only saving grace you have is your drivers. Once again, you had me waiting 25 minutes to get a cab. It's the reason I don't call you UNLESS I MUST! You're awful, awful, awful. Pick it up or lose more business. Pros: Courteous, efficient drivers Cons: HORRIBLE DISPATCHERS, LATE, LATE SERVICE more

be advised 2/13/2009
