Enterprise advises electric companies that operate pickup trucks in the Southeast to plan to save their vehicles now to avoid paying thousands of pounds in surcharges and potential fines when the Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) expands in Greater London on October 25, 2021. Expanded ULEZ will include 18 times more space It is bounded by the North Ring Road and the South Ring Road, and passes through several previously unaffected neighborhoods in the area. Enterprise anticipates that the triple effect of ULEZ expansion, combined with increased seasonal demand for deliveries before Christmas and Black Friday, as well as increased demand for post-accident replacement rental as a result of winter driving conditions and daylight saving time, could lead to unprecedented demand for both Trucks and HGVs. It is estimated that as many as 35,000 trucks and 3,000 trucks traveling to London each day do not currently meet the required Euro 6 emissions standards and will be liable for extended ULEZ fees. The daily fee runs from midnight to midnight, so a car that enters the area at 11:00 p.m. and leaves at 3:00 a.m. must pay two charges per day. The daily ULEZ fee for non-Euro 6 compliant trucks is £100 with a fine of £500, plus any congestion charge or Low Emission Zone (LEZ) fee that applies. A small electric company drives five non-compliant pickup trucks in the new ULEZ 250 days a year, and will still pay more than £15,000 a year in additional costs. It must either be absorbed or passed on to clients. The increase in online shopping and home delivery over the past 12 months has already increased the demand for both daily and long-term commercial vehicle rentals. So plumbers in need of vans should ensure the best rental solutions are now available to avoid daily fees and fines of £12.50 from £250. It is unlikely that any commercial vehicles over five years old will meet the standard, as the Euro 6 standard was only required on new vehicles from September 2016 onwards. Thousands of truck and van operators are likely to be affected, as flights to and from areas such as Hammersmith, Cricklewood, Walthamstow, Blackheath and Beckham will now fall under ULEZ. Many neighborhoods will be divided by the expanded area and vehicles operating there may face the charge simply by driving a hundred yards or less. Danny Glenn, Managing Director of Enterprise Flex-E-Rent comments: “The expansion of ULEZ is a vital step in improving London’s air quality and an important reminder that reducing the number of older vehicles can dramatically reduce carbon dioxide emissions.” We appreciate that many Of the electricians who still own and operate old trucks in and around Greater London will be arrested and end up paying fines and surcharges. “Businesses need to plan now to ensure they have access to Euro 6 compliant rental vehicles, as demand for HGVs and vans has increased during the pandemic. We are working closely with manufacturers and the supply chain to ensure we can provide a fleet of low-emission Euro 6 commercial vehicles to empower businesses operating In the area of compliance with extended ULEZ standards.” “Rental demand is already high and will only increase as the deadline approaches. It would also be difficult to pass on these fees as higher costs to customers if the only explanation was that the company did not plan ahead.” Electricity workers looking to switch to compliant vehicles quickly in order to avoid additional ULEZ fees or penalties will benefit from the additional financial flexibility it brings Leasing, enabling them to move away from the high capital costs of owning a fleet Vehicles can be rented by the hour, by the day, by the week or for longer periods with flexible leasing to accomplish long-term projects Companies can also use the Enterprise Car Club to avoid employees having to pay ULEZ fees when they drive their fleet Old Ramadi is inside the area on short business trips. In order to ensure hygiene and safety, Enterprise has introduced its Total Clean pledge in 2020 to enhance how all of its vehicles, including trucks and vans, are thoroughly cleaned between each rental. This includes washing, vacuuming and mopping General and disinfectant sterilization meets the requirements of the leading sanitary authority, with special attention to more than 20 high contact points.
