702 Small Business Awards

Overworked parent? Old School Cool will safely drive your kids around

702 and Sage One have been asking you to nominate small businesses you’ve dealt with that prove that bigger isn’t always better. For more on the Small Business Awards, check out sba.702.co.za.

Old School Cool has been nominated by Imogen Tarita for the service she received.

Imogen needed transport for her daughter to go to school and other activities.

A friend of a friend recommended Old School Cool as she too had not been able to take her daughter to school before going to work.

Imogen says the cars that Old School Cool uses are new. They even have cameras fitted in them so if there is an issue it can be reviewed and acted upon.

Imogen says management and drivers at Old School Cool are super-efficient. She says one of the drivers driving her daughter to school has bought her daughter a CD out of her salary so that they can sing along on the way to school.

The driver goes the extra mile by giving words of encouragement during exam time to her child.
