Trusted by Many

This business was started in a very rural upper East Tn area but I'm happy to be in Florida with my close family now and feel honored and privileged to be serving the many residents of The Villages.

Most of the comments below were from the TN residents I served but I hope to add many more from my future Florida Clients!!

AWESOME! After several attempts to secure transportation through other services, I contacted this company and spoke to Eric. He confirmed availability, verified my flight information the morning of the trip, followed up timely with all communications, and gave me a great tour/introduction to the area on the way to the airport. Car was clean and comfortable. He was pleasant and engaging, which made the hour plus ride more enjoyable. I will recommend Eric & Premier Taxi and Transport to anyone visiting the Tazewell area!  5 Stars!!

We just moved to the area and we had an unfortunate event. Our car broke down in the middle of nowhere. We ​called State Farm and we called AAA and after waiting for several hours we were able to get a ride home from a neighbor. But then we located Eric from Premier Taxi and Transport Services. We reached out to him late on Saturday evening to arrange a ride for Sunday early afternoon. He immediately responded to our call with a definite time for arrival. We touched base Sunday morning to confirm times. Eric arrived on time and was very professional. He was an excellent driver and a great conversationalist. When we arrived at the rental car kiosk at the airport he made sure we had our rental car before he departed. It was a wonderful experience!

Recommend!! 5 stars.

Very Personable, Professional and Courteous. Fast service and got me to my car so I could get home quickly as I live out of state. Thanks Eric.

5 Stars!!

Premier Taxi & Transport is a service that I will use again. Eric promptly answers your message or call and communicates with you efficiently.

I needed a ride to the Knoxville airport area within a day and a half. Thankfully he was available at my timeframe.​

He was prompt, very professional and we had great conversations on our trip.

His pricing is very fair and reasonable. I highly recommended Premier Taxi & Transport!!

5 stars!!

Eric is an excellent communicator, and runs a truly professional transportation service. He took the steps to make me feel assured and safe on my trip from Knoxville airport to New Tazewell. Try him out, you'll be like me and won't use anyone else!

5 stars!!

I've used Eric a few times now and I can say his services have always been above and beyond. He is professional, on time, a safe driver, informative, kind and thoughtful. We're without a car at the moment and have used him to take my mother to the ER, to her doctor appointments, and to run errands. He is always doing his best to meet his clients needs and to make us feel as comfortable as possible. Today he took me to do some grocery shopping while my mother was at her doctor's appointment, and anticipating the wait time brought a cooler with ice for me to put my perishables in so they would stay fresh. He really tries to anticipate his clients needs and helps out in any area he can. He is over all a great guy with a great taxi service, I would recommend him to anyone and will always use him for any future taxi services that I would need. 

5 stars is not enough!!

Landed my experimental aircraft at the Tazewell airport because of mechanical issues and weather. Needed to get to McGhee Tyson quickly as I'm a United Airline pilot looking to catch a hop back to my home terminal in Chicago. This service had just started and thankfully so. Your local law enforcement was able find you.

Clean vehicle and professional service. Definitely going to use again when I'm in the area. Great service to the Knoxville Airport.

Thanks again Eric.

- Sean

Happy to call you neighbor, and friend! You helped me so much with doctor's appointments when I could not drive. I don't know what I would do without you! God had a plan, and I am glad He placed you here! Hugs, my friend!

- JoAnn Scott

One of the best people I’ve ever met in my life! When I was in a low spot he got me to work almost everyday! He was always early. He listened me to me, gave me advice and motivated me each day. Even on the days he wished I would shut up…. Lol… I knew If Eric was available--then I didn’t have a worry in the world. You won’t find another person/ taxi service like this one. 

- Amanda Irene Hickey

It's great to have a local taxi service again. It's really convenient for people who don't have any other way to get around or are not able to drive themselves. Thank you and keep up the amazing work.

This area has really needed your service.

- Vonlynn Beeler Seabolt and Linda Arwood

Best reliable taxi service! 10 stars in my eyes. Mother is 81 and she can still do banking and a little shopping and feels like she's safe while getting out of house thanks to my friend!! Highly recommend his service! Well deserved Facebook honors and comments--Mr. Eric

- Cat Burchfield

You saved me!! I live in Pennsylvania!! I drove a vehicle from up here down to my daughter in Tazewell who's a student at LMU Vet program and her car died. I had no way to the airport because of her classes!!


I had to fly from the Tri-Cities airport to Florida just to get back to PA. It was Thanksgiving week. I was and am so grateful! You took the scenic route, stopped and gave my youngest child and I some breath taking views and some TN history! 


I couldn't count on those who claimed they loved me. You really made this trip valuable!! 


God doesn't send the equipped, He equips, those He sends. 

I'll forever tell of you and recommend you. 


]Love, Kindness, Peace, and Joy.. Grateful.

I just moved here a few months ago and found out about Eric's service. I live in an RV complex off Lone Mountain road in Tazewell, TN.

I've kept him busy taking me to the local package store and grocery stores in the area. 

Good guy--very friendly and waits on me wherever I need dropped off.

Justified rates and on time, every time.

I've taken many taxi's in my life and you can tell Eric is not your typical Uber driver.

5 stars for sure and will use him often!!


- Cody

Very nice, very patient and clean vehicle. Takes you anywhere you want to go. I was 37 weeks pregnant and Eric was a godsend taking me multiple trips to the Middlesboro Hospital and MD appts as I had no one else to take me. He also allowed me to stop for drive-thru food for me and my 2 small children and the drive-thru pharmacy to pick up some meds. Needed a grocery run--He was there!! 

100% recommend!!

- Megan Shiver

Needed a grocery run as our car was down because of a flat tire. Awesome experience!!! Quick and super friendly!!! Never mind his knowledge of the history of the area. Extremely reasonable. Would highly recommend his services!!!

- Tara Lynn West

The owner and operator of this business is an experienced and professional driver ​for many years with a flawless driving record. He has operated all types of vehicles from moto​rcycles to 18 wheel big rigs. Safety and passenger comfort are his primary concern. Sit back and enjoy the ride.


- Norman

Very courteous and professional service. Nice clean vehicle inside and out. Doesn't smell like a regular Taxi either. Nice fresh smell but not overbearing.

Also good conversationalist but knows when to stop talking allowing some quiet time/social media time if needed. 

Would recommend again.

- Myra Wright

I was super comfortable and felt very safe. Very professional service. 

I could tell immediately he was a professional driver by the way he drove his vehicle checking his mirrors constantly and watching his speed. I asked him if he'd ever driven Big Rigs. Knowing the answer already--he confirmed it--Yes. Will definitely use him again. He's got great music too!-if you're into that or want it. 

Thank you so much Big guy!!

- Samantha

My wife and I are staying at a local hotel currently in Tazewell, TN. My car is out of service and I'm a welder working for a local company. I will be here for some time and we were happy to find Eric.

We've needed many grocery runs, Walmart, or to take me to work and back, etc and Eric never let us down. Always on time, flexible, and friendly. His rates are very fair.

He says he does this now to help his local communities and I believe him.

And has plenty of room for groceries!!

First rate taxi service and I highly recommend!!

- Josh

Eric was Awesome for the ride, fun to talk to and flexible with his time.

He even let me stop to pick up and drink and snack!

I needed to pick up a rental car at the Knoxville Airport and when we got there--Eric insisted I get those rental car keys in my hand before he left that facility.

He even drove me all the way to the rental car location allowing me to unload all my gear from a short distance.

10 stars if that available.

I would hire this service again!!

- Isaac

We are a Knoxville family that unfortunately has a blind family member living in the Tazewell area with a caregiver. She requires many MD appointments to various local destinations.

We were very fortunate to find Eric and Premier Taxi.

All of our family have jobs--and it's become a great effort to get our Tazewell family member to her frequent appointments.

Eric is courteous, on time, a safe driver and very personable! We will DEFINITELY  be calling on him for future travel needs.

This area has needed someone like Eric for a very long time. Glad to have found him.

I’m a female LMU student that needed a ride to the Knoxville airport to visit family in Memphis, TN. I am so happy this new taxi service is now available and close to LMU Harrogate, TN. It can be tough to get around without a car especially if you need to go to the Knoxville airport. Eric was an excellent driver. He's friendly & safe. You never really know about taxi drivers, but I felt very comfortable riding with him I guess because he's an Air force veteran and a large man as well. His rates are very reasonable. H​e's punctual and makes your experience seamless and stress-free. He played smooth jazz--very relaxing. I went to sleep twice. I recommend everybody use this service because there is no other like it in the area. 5 stars!!  Thanks Eric!!

 I've been in an abusive relationship living in Tazewell for many months and needed a way out and a way home. My mom found Eric on Google thank goodness. I just wanted to go home to Crossville, TN where Mom was. When I called Eric he said Crossville was a "little outside" of his range but he would do it. I can't believe a local Taxi driver would take you so far. Trip was great and I felt very safe with a Big teddy bear at the wheel. Soooo happy to be back home and away from fear and abuse. We paid him well and Mom gave him all the cash she had $16.00 as a tip when we arrived. He would not accept it but she insisted. Thank you sooooo much Eric!! And by the way--I'm divorcing that SOB tomorrow!!

- April

Thank you so much Eric for driving my husband and I to the airport in January and picking us back up at midnight 3 weeks later! Your calm professional demeanor and being in control of the vehicle at all times was very reassuring. My husband was very happy that he was saved from the airport parking fees well as enjoying zero anxiety because his vision is so poor at night now due to diabetes. We appreciated the clean comfortable environment with the roomy trunk for all my suitcases! I will be calling you for any trips we have in the future, airport transportation or just special celebration nights! I'll be recommending you to anyone who has transportation needs⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Thanks again sir.

Whoops noticed you have a 5 star rating. Put me in for that one please and I would give you 10 if I could!!
