About Us

Our Story & Vision

Abetta Cars has a rich history that dates back to its founding in 1976 by Stanley Frankel. Faced with the prevalent issue of unreliable taxis, Stanley set out to provide a dependable transportation service to the local community.

His vision was to ensure that people could count on prompt and trustworthy rides whenever they needed them. In 1981, the reins of Abetta Cars were passed down to Stanley's son, Sean Frankel. With a passion for excellence and a dedication to customer satisfaction, Sean successfully led the company for three decades.

Under his leadership, Abetta Cars grew and became widely known within Finchley/Barnet as the cab company to go to for reliability and a strong customer-centric approach to operations. In 2011, Sean made a strategic decision to expand his business operations and ventured into the courier industry.

This led to the establishment of Abetta Couriers, a division dedicated to providing efficient and timely delivery services both nationally and globally. Sean's foresight allowed Abetta to diversify its offerings and cater to a wider range of customer needs.

The year 2023 marked a significant milestone for Abetta as Sean decided to pass the company down to his two sons, Aaron Frankel and Owen Frankel. Building on their father's, and grandfather's legacy, Aaron and Owen combined the strengths of Abetta Cars and Abetta Couriers to form a unified entity, simply known as Abetta.

 In 2024, Abetta obtained 3 UKAS Accredited ISO Certifications, demonstrating their unwavering commitment to quality management, information security and environmental management. Additionally, Abetta is developing a new service 'Abetta Medical', which aims to provide Non-Emergency Patient Transport Services (NEPTS) and Medical Couriers, further solidifying their position as a trusted provider in the transportation and logistics industry.

Roadside Operations

Climate change and pollution are some of the most formidable global challenges of our time. As a primary emitter of greenhouse gasses (GHG), the transport and logistics industry has a key responsibility to help tackle this issue.

We take this challenge very seriously and are proud to say we are playing our part on the road by:

Abetta Green - A ground breaking courier service we offer which involves collecting parcels/documents within the City of London via Pedal Assisted E-Cargo Bikes/Vans, then working with our global partner DHL to offer a method of getting a parcel from London to any destination around the globe 100% carbon free!

Fleet Efficiency - Currently (2023), over 50% of our Minicab fleet either have hybrid or electric cars, this minimises our carbon emissions and reduces our environmental impact. We also incentivise our existing drivers to choose either a hybrid or electric car when changing vehicles.

Route Optimisation - Our in-house advanced route planning and optimisation software helps to reduce mileage and fuel consumption. By optimising routes, we minimize the number of trips, saving time, fuel, and reducing emissions.

Office Operations

It doesn't stop on the road either, within our offices we have also taken steps to ensure we are as environmentally friendly as possible:

Paperless Operations - We have implemented electronic billing systems to eliminate the need for paper invoices. This allows us to send invoices directly to our clients via email, reducing paper usage and streamlining the billing process. We have transitioned to digital record-keeping systems to minimise the use of paper documents. This includes storing important files, contracts, and customer information in secure cloud-based platforms, reducing the need for physical storage and file cabinets.

Recycling & Waste Management - We have established comprehensive recycling programs within our company premises. This includes separate bins for paper, plastic, glass, and other recyclable materials. We actively encourage our employees to participate in recycling efforts and provide training to ensure proper waste segregation.

Energy-Efficient Hardware - Both offices have up to date PC's which includes energy-efficient hardware components, such as processors, graphics cards, and power supplies. These components are designed to consume less energy while providing optimal performance, resulting in reduced electricity usage and lower energy costs.


Higher standards. New benchmarks.
