“We have used this service many times (once with our small dog) and found Derek to be punctual, immaculately dressed, extremely polite and friendly at all times. We feel very safe with his driving and know that when our loved ones are collected from the airport they are delivered to our home safe and sound. We thoroughly recommend this wonderful service.”    Fay and Graham Hayton. – Athenree, Katikati

“On two occasions my wife and I used Derek’s Companion Driving service. We were thoroughly pleased with the punctuality and thoughtfulness, and Derek went that extra mile to make it as easy as possible. We highly recommend the service and would not hesitate to use his service again.”     Stuart and Glenis – Thames


“Derek is a professional and very efficient person. When he helps me with my supermarket shopping he is also kind, caring, patient and very helpful. I recommend his Companion Driving Service unreservedly.”  Maureen Cann – Thames


“I wanted to surprise my husband on his 84th birthday. As a resident in a secure wing of a rest home, he doesn’t often venture out of his room. After some detective work, I discovered a much-needed service – A Companion Driver. This person takes your loved one for a drive and will even stop for an ice-cream. I made a date with the driver to take us for a drive up the Thames coast — just the best day. Thank you to ‘Derek the Driver’ for a special Birthday treat. You drove with due care, made us feel relaxed and we so much enjoyed the trip”.   Shirley Wilson – Waiomu.
