The Wheelhouse partners with Zipcar

Coworking and ‘zipping’ around

The Wheelhouse is very excited to announce that we are partnering with Zipcar and our members will benefit. They will now have the option to sign up to Zipcar and become part of their deal. Zipcar is a car club – the world’s largest car club network currently operating in London, Bristol, Oxford and Cambridge (and another 50+ cities across Europe and North America). Joining Zipcar will give our members the freedom to access a car or van where and when they need one, without any of the hassle or expense of ownership.

Benefits of using Zipcar for entrepreneurs and start-ups

We feel this would benefit our members hugely; many of them cycle or bus in to The Wheelhouse but there are occasions where they need to travel to other cities in the UK for a meeting – Zipcar provides the perfect happy medium. Apart from not having to worry about and maintain a car, they will have access to over 1,500 cars in the UK available 24/7. Insurance and Congestion Charges are all included, and no maintenance is needed.

Facts about Zipcar and building community

Each Zipcar takes over 10 personally-owned vehicles off the road and car club members saved over 49,000 tonnes of CO2 last year* – At The Wheelhouse, we take pride in producing coworking spaces which are located in places where people can easily access but understand that occasionally a car is needed – we feel this is a fantastic partnership where we are both building community with small businesses and have a mutual and true sense of sharing!
