Company History

The company was originally founded in 1870 and began with a fleet of more than 50 horse drawn cabs. These horse drawn cabs operated up to the early 1900's.

It is worth noting that Millers was responsible for ensuring that water troughs were placed at the top of inclines in Preston so that horses could refresh themselves after a long hard slog!

When motorised vehicles came along Millers was the first company in Preston to offer saloon cars and limousines to the general public.

Always being a firm at the forefront of advancement Millers also provided the first motorised ambulance to serve Preston and introduced the first charabanc (Coach) in the North of England. During the 1960's Millers introduced the first black cabs to Preston.

Since then Millers have grown into the largest taxi company in Lancashire with over 220 drivers in the Preston and South Ribble areas.
