Revealed: Lost Property in London’s Minicabs





London’s Lost Property – Top 9 Minicab Miscellany Revealed

Kabbee, the multi-award-winning minicab price comparison and booking app, has today revealed the top nine strangest items left behind by London passengers in the backseat of its fleet’s minicabs.

The quick poll of Kabbee’s 60 London minicab fleets identified that along with mobile phones, keys, wallets, umbrellas, shoes, there are some unusual items getting left behind. The top nine are:

1)     Taxidermy fox

2)   Whip with latex underwear

3)   Diamond ring

4)   £5,000 cash

5)   Parrot

6)   Mini cheese grater

7)   Adult’s gold tooth

8)   Inflatable Zimmer frame

9)   Helium tank

Kabbee is prompting Londoners to check their belongings before leaving a cab, after a woman recently lost one of her trainers underneath the backseat, after it fell out of her rucksack.

Every month thousands of minicabs across London are booked via the Kabbee app, so it’s vital that its 600K users feel assured they will enjoy the ride, each, and every, time, and leave with all their belongings.

Justin Peters, Kabbee CEO & Founder comments on the top nine items found by minicab fleets: “The moment a passenger gets into a minicab, they put a great amount of trust in that driver. At Kabbee, we are encouraging our minicab fleets to reduce the amount of lost property found by drivers, by reminding passengers to check the back seat before they leave the vehicle, in the hope that no items are left behind.

“We put all licensed minicab firms through a tough 30-point check before they can provide quotes via the Kabbee app – and one of them is to ensure they have a full and accurate lost property folder, so that in the event that an item is left behind, it can be quickly returned to its owner.”

Duncan Blackett, CEO of iRide – a fleet on the Kabbee platform, comments: “It’s actually quite surprising to hear about some of the items left in the back of cars – a big one is scarves and gloves in the colder months, but we’ve seen boxes of chocolates, and lingerie on a few occasions, particularly around Valentine’s Day.”
