Kia Ora everyone, my name is Sally McArthur and I am the proud owner of the first Freedom Drivers franchise in Dunedin. I am excited to bring this very personal transport service to the area and I very much look forward to building relationships with locals looking for a caring service to get them from A to B.

I am born and bred in Dunedin, having lived in several suburbs over the years, as well as having family who lived and operated a business in North East Valley. My father’s family immigrated to NZ from Scotland when he was a child and my mum was English. I have an adult daughter, a 2 year-old grandson I dote on, and my partner has four daughters.

My working life so far has been spent in the public service with 15 years at ACC in various roles, from claims management, to team leader with 14 staff, and then claims manager in the accidental death unit. In the UK I was a Senior Administrator for the Care Quality Commission which regulates Health and Social Care Services monitoring all care homes, mental health services, and other health services to ensure regulatory standards are maintained. I also spent 3 years at the Department of Work and Pensions as a Personal Advisor, assisting unemployed customers to return to the work force.

My key interests are my family, gardening, travel, arts & crafts including a bit of knitting and I am involved with a local church.

Being able to help and support others in the community in a compassionate and non-judgemental way is very important to me which is why I feel that the Freedom Drivers business is such a good fit.

Providing great customer service has been central to every role I have ever done including good listening skills and knowing when someone wants to talk or when they need quiet time. Honesty, integrity and confidentiality is an essential part of my service.

We also offer a Personal driving service for tourists visiting Dunedin and surrounding areas.

Stress free and flexible. If you are on holiday and don’t want to drive or join a crowded tour try our personalised driving service for tourists. Stop when and where you like. Hire us for a half or a full day. Your own personal holiday chauffeur! We are happy to drive long distances, including to Queenstown, Central Otago and Bluff, South Otago. Just call to discuss.

Please feel free to get in touch to find out more about the service or just for a chat! I look forward to hearing from you!


Having had occasion over the past few months to use the Freedom Drivers service we feel we must write and say how impressed we have been. Our driver, Sally, is lovely and has become a friend rather than just a driver. She is friendly, reliable, helpful and extremely considerate especially when you have a mobility issue as we both do and need help carrying things to and from the car. Sally’s ‘going the extra mile approach’ makes her trips feel so safe and comfortable. She is always punctual and has been prepared to meet us off the Inter City coach when we return from visiting family in Invercargill. Thank you for providing such a brilliant service. Many thanks,

Christine, Dunedin.
