If you are a small business owner needing to travel into the centre of the capital regularly with an older van, then it may become an expensive undertaking and you should contact Scrap A Van if you want to scrap a van safely and legally.
That’s because the ultra low emission zone (Ulez) takes effect from 8 April and you will need to pay extra if your van doesn’t meet the requirements of the scheme which is there to help improve air quality.
So, in addition to paying the congestion charge, for those driving into the centre of London will also need to pay an extra fee because your old diesel van may not comply with the Euro6 emissions standard.
In total, small firms will need to pay £24 a day and if they don’t then they face a £160 penalty. You can check online as to whether your vehicle will need to pay the Ulez charge at the Transport for London site.
