New Congestion Charges for 2021
Clean air zones were being planned for many major cities throughout the UK. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, funding has been scrapped and certain cities like Leeds are looking more likely to not implement the clean air zone in the foreseeable future.
All of our vans are of the required standard to enter these zones free of charge. This means there should be no extra cost to our customers and we can help keep the planet healthy.
