Business class cars. At your service

From humble beginnings to Skelmersdale's most trusted business-class car service in just twenty years, Skem Express Cars have grown with and for the times.

And yet, so little has changed about us. We still believe our clients are right to expect extraordinary standards, and by using the latest technologies with traditional customer service values we will continue to provide the best taxi service in West Lancashire.

Today, our 110 cars are responsible for getting the general public and business customers where they need to go. And with our business expanding every day we will continue to deliver that same executive service consistently.
