Sovereign Companion Driving

Sovereign Companion Driving is a companion driving service to assist people with their mobility and transport needs in the Thames area.
I provide assistance with transport to and from appointments, shopping and general outings or out for coffee.
Cost is $25.00 per hour.
A mileage fee applies for travel out of town.
I have been able to operate through all of the Covid levels as this service is classed as an essential service.
I have had over 8 years experience in community healthcare so am familiar with mobility aids for the elderly etc.
I have also been Police vetted, and the vehicle is certified safe for transporting the public.
You can call or text me and ask for more information.
