Wouldn't the train just be a lot easier?

Perhaps easybus?

just a ring down your local taxi office would be fine would it not? they can usually arrange a nice 7 seater if you give them some notice

Since when has a train been easier than a taxi? The OP might have 4 people travelling so a taxi would also be cheaper or may have an early morning flight hence no train option.

Don't Gat Ex. services run through the night?

not between 12:30am and 3:30am so no good if you have one of the early flights

Where are you travelling from?

The train stops at Gatwick airport. It is probably the easiest way to get to the airport.

Yes, the trains will still be running. I got a train from just outside north London to Gatwick at 3am. I believe they run every hour-ish at that time in the morning.

1pm flight and you are leaving at 8am! You only need to be at the airport 2 hours before the flight (or 1 hour with first choice/thomson as you get shown to the front of the mile long checkin queue :whistling:).

Why not ask for a quote from multiple locations. So you can take a shopping trolley but not a suitcase :?
