Introduction to the new London ULEZ Scrappage Scheme

The Mayor of London has introduced a new scrappage scheme to reduce the amount of toxic air in London.

From 26th October 2020, the lower emission zones will be much stricter on heavier vehicles. This new scrappage scheme will support companies with 50 and under employees that don’t meet the ULEZ standards. If your vehicle does not meet the new standards, you will incur charges each day that you travel through London.

You can apply for a grant as follows on up to 3 vans or minibuses if they are running in the ULEZ zone. Existing vehicles that do not meet the ULEZ levels are EURO 1-5, if you have any of these vehicles you have the following options:

  • You can get up to £7000 grant if your vehicles are replaced with EURO 6 vehicles.
  • You can get up to £9500 grant if your vehicles are replaced with electric vehicles.
  • With that you can receive a refund of 3 months worth of LEZ payments.


At Hireco, we understand that this will affect a lot of small businesses but we are here to help! Here are options as to what we can do for you.

We can purchase your old vehicle – once you have applied for the scrappage scheme, we can then buy your vehicle and take the hassle off of your hands! You will get cash injection back into your business from the sale, and then we can offer you a fixed cost lease, with maintenance included for our electric vehicles.
