Offers for SMEs taking up London scrappage scheme from Enterprise


Enterprise is offering up to 50 per cent off van rental to businesses that drive older vans into Central London regularly, if they take advantage of the Mayor’s van scrappage scheme.
Businesses and charities with fewer than 10 employees and a maximum turnover below £632,000 per year can now exchange or ‘scrap’ their existing older vans and claim up to £3,500 per vehicle to switch to the cleanest models, including electric vehicles.
The scheme is especially appealing after the introduction of the ULEZ as older diesel vans that do not meet the latest Euro 6 emissions standard have to pay an additional £12.50 a day to drive in the Congestion Charging Zone in Central London.
Enterprise is allowing fleets to get up to 50 per cent off the standard rental rates across Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Enterprise Car Club when they ‘bank’ between £2,500-£3,500** of the van scrappage allowance with Enterprise
The company is also making it free to join (normally £60) and are giving savings of 20% on van rental.
There are also offers for up to 20 per cent off the standard hire rates across Enterprise Rent-A-Car branches for longer-term daily van rental and 15 per cent on long-term van rentals at Enterprise Flex-E-Rent.
Ben Lawson, Vice President of Strategy and Project Development for the UK & Ireland at Enterprise, said: “Many smaller businesses operating in and around London are utterly reliant on their vans for work. Many may find themselves liable for a big daily charge if they drive their older vehicles into the ULEZ. The van scrappage scheme allows them to trade those older, more polluting and less efficient vehicles in for cash.
“That money can be used to buy new vehicles, or for rental programmes through companies like Enterprise if that level of investment is not suitable or feasible for the business right now. We’ve set up our rental discount programme to give businesses a real alternative – access to the latest vehicles, on demand, when and where they need them.”
