Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update from Enterprise Truck Rental

 

Complete Clean Pledge

Enterprise is proud to announce a new, program with Clorox®, one of the most trusted brands for powerful cleaning, and implement near- and long-term enhancements to our Complete Clean Pledge. 

Enterprise will begin providing a one-count Clorox® Disinfecting Wipe in every rental vehicle at all locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. The Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes are approved by the EPA to kill SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, when used as directed on hard, non-porous surfaces. Each wipe includes directions for use and is accompanied by instructions to use it on the vehicle's high-touch, hard non-porous surfaces. 

We never stop looking for ways to enhance cleanliness and safety. In addition to being confident your vehicle is cleaned and sanitized every time you rent, you can also feel confident that we will take every opportunity to enhance the health and safety measures currently practiced in our operations.

Taking Precautions to Control the Spread

While we are accepting reservations from any branch on the web or by phone. We aremay have limited our physical locations by consolidating operations to centralized branches in some areas.

For reservations made on your behalf by a third party, such as an insurance carrier, the process is the same.  An Enterprise employee will contact you to arrange the details to fulfill your reservation.

This precaution helps increase safety for employees and customers, keeping our open locations and physical interaction to a minimum while still maximizing our availability for those that need our services.
