Barking Riverside Enterprise Car Club Comes to Parklands

A bright red Hyundai i10 is now parked at the Barking Riverside Sales Suite, a short walk from Parklands homes, giving L&Q residents fast access to Barking Riverside’s Enterprise Car Club.

Enterprise Car Club is a rental platform which enables users to hire vehicles with the click of an app. The fuel efficient vehicles are available to rent by the hour or the day, with low rates from just £4.95 per hour.

An added bonus for new residents, Enterprise Car Club are offering a free 12 month membership, and an additional £50 driving credit, helping users save whilst they drive during their first year at Barking Riverside.
As well as being efficient and convenient for residents, Car Club membership is proven to be considerably more affordable than owning a car. Research has shown that over 12 months, car club members spend on average 43% less on transport and maintenance, compared to car owners.
Helping the planet too, Car Club membership has led to the removal of over 31,000 privately owned vehicles from the roads. Enterprises’ vehicles produce on average 29% less CO2 than the national average for a car, reducing a Londoner’s transport carbon footprint by 73%, and saving almost 50,000 tonnes of CO2 in one year.
Barking Riverside residents can reach a fantastic range of places by car. Situated just 0.6 miles from the A13, 2.7 miles from the A406 North Circular and 7.9 miles from the M11, the development is well connected to London, as well as Britain’s motorway network.

The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park can be reached in just 20 minutes, home to the ArcelorMittal Orbit slide, London Aquatics Centre, and fantastic green space. If a big shopping trip is on the cards, neighbouring Westfield Stratford has almost 2 million sq ft of retail space making it one of largest urban shopping centres in Europe. Or if you would prefer to escape to the country, then Epping Forest’s 6,200 acres of woodland and marshland is just a 30 minute drive away.
