Taxis are widely available, but always agree on a price and currency before
setting off. Most drivers serve as both private taxi drivers and roadside
collective taxis, picking up folks alongside the road on a particular
route. It’s an inexpensive way to get around the island and it’s
a great way to meet people. The downside is that apart from work hours
it is sometimes a long wait for a ride.

-- CAR RENTALS
Although car rentals are readily available and reasonably priced at about US $210/week you will have to obtain a Montserrat driving license. Throughout the Eastern Caribbean, the driving license has become a valuable source of governmental income. It has nothing to do with your driving competence; it is simply an added annoyance -- one that is unavoidable. Usually your car rental service will make it as painless as possible. The temporary license costs EC $50.

TREE REMOVAL & LOGGING
Specialty: Tree surgery, pruning trees without damaging
your property and logging. If you have some of Montserrat's beautiful
hardwood trees on your property and unfortunately have to remove them
I can process the Mahogany, white cedar, red cedar and deliver the finished
lumber directly to you.
Owner's comment: I've been falling trees as well as
selectively pruning trees for over 32 years. I've been employed by the
Agriculture of Montserrat for over 26 years doing this specialty as
well. So, if you have a tree problem small or large or damage due to
disaster just call me and I will come by and give you an estimate of
any part of the job. I have all my own equipment and can do the work
absence if you so desire. From A 2 Z the job will be done with care and
patience. And, don't forget I can also process the finished lumber for
you from your own trees -- no waste "lets take care of our natural
resources here in Montserrat."
