Taking Precautions to Control the Spread

 

While we are accepting reservations from any branch location on the web or by phone, we have limited our physical locations by consolidating operations to centralized branches.

After you make a reservation online, you may be contacted by one of our employees to help arrange a vehicle transfer point that may differ from your originating branch location.

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.

Complete Clean Pledge

 

Expanding our rigorous cleaning protocols, Enterprise has teamed up with Clorox® one of the most trusted brands for powerful cleaning, as a member of the Clorox® Safer Today Alliance™.

In addition to our enhanced cleaning, a one-count Clorox® Disinfecting Wipe for use on high-touch, hard, non-porous surfaces is provided in every rental vehicle in the U.S. and Canada.

While we’ve always had a very formal training process in place that instructs all employees on the proper cleaning of a vehicle, employees are now being trained to implement new and more comprehensive mandates that include enhanced cleaning guidance for vehicles, shuttles and branch locations, as well as social distancing practices.

Vehicles

Clean vehicles have always been important to us, but at this moment in time, we know vehicle cleanliness is even more critical.

Each of our vehicles is thoroughly cleaned between every rental and backed with the Complete Clean Pledge. This includes washing, vacuuming, general wipe down, and sanitizing with a disinfectant that meets leading health authority requirements, with particular attention to more than 20-plus high-touch points including:

  • Key / key fob
  • Steering wheel
  • Steering column
  • Seat belts
  • Center console
  • Door interiors
  • Door pockets
  • Interior door handles
  • Exterior door handles
  • Seat pockets / seat surfaces
  • Areas between seats & consoles
  • Areas between seats & doorjambs
  • Cupholders / compartments
  • Instrument panel
  • Accessory panel / touchscreen
  • Rearview mirror / side mirrors
  • Visors / visor mirrors
  • Dashboard / vents
  • Gear stick / gear shift
  • Trunk release
  • Among any other high-touch areas

We also have measures in place to immediately isolate and quarantine any vehicle if needed.

Shuttles

Social distancing protocols are implemented as passengers board, ride and depart from our shuttle buses. We are limiting the number of passengers on each bus, encouraging a one-way flow as passengers board and ensuring that passengers from different parties keep appropriate social distancing from others.

High-touch areas of our shuttles are cleaned and sanitized using a disinfectant frequently between trips. This includes baggage racks, door handles, and seat backs. All surfaces are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized with a disinfectant at least once per day.

Branch Locations

The Complete Clean Pledge extends to our locations, as well.

We have also introduced updated process and safety procedures for our rental locations. Our employees working in branch locations are following best practices recommended by leading health authorities. This includes frequently sanitizing touchable surfaces with disinfectant throughout the day. These include counter tops, phones, tablet devices, payment devices, door handles, among other high-touch areas. 

The cleaning guidance set forth in the Complete Clean Pledge is also aligned with the U.S Travel Association’s (USTA) "Travel in the New Normal" guidance.

How We Help Increase Safety for Our Employees

 

Enterprise is committed to providing a safer work environment during this challenging time and continues to monitor the situation, implementing additional safety measures as needed.

As part of the Clorox® Safer Today Alliance, we’re using research and best practices from the Cleveland Clinic and the CDC Foundation to create healthier public spaces and work environments.

In addition to our branch employees, we also have remote customer service staff working to answer your questions and help you arrange or change reservations.

The employees working in branch locations are following the best practices recommended by the various health authorities to help reduce risk during this Coronavirus outbreak. 

These practices include:

  • Limiting the number of employees in a location
  • Requesting employees and customers not fully vaccinated to wear face coverings
  • Using social distancing
  • Staying home if they are feeling ill 
  • Frequently washing hands 
  • Frequently sanitizing high touch surfaces with disinfectant 
  • Using disposable gloves and a disinfectant when cleaning vehicles 
  • Minimizing customer interaction at vehicle pickup or delivery
  • Ensuring local teams have supplies and resources needed 

Additionally, all employees have been made aware that if they ever feel uncomfortable with working in a physical location, they are under absolutely no obligation to work.

How We Help Increase Safety for and Support Customers

 

To help increase safety for both customers and employees, we have modified our service offerings. This includes the addition of curbside rentals at our locations to help promote social distancing by getting you quickly on your way while avoiding foot traffic in our locations.

Every vehicle is cleaning to the 20-point specifications of our Complete Clean Pledge. For added confidence, every vehicle in the U.S. and Canada is also supplied with a one-count Clorox® Disinfecting Wipe for use on high-touch, hard, non-porous surfaces.

Whether you are picking your vehicle up curbside, or if we deliver it to you at your workplace, body shop or home, we maintain proper distance throughout the process.

While we look forward to continuing to serve you during this time, we recognize some travel plans may change. Customers who have booked a rental through a third-party are encouraged to contact that party directly to understand their policy.
