Details: I'm not sure which (or how many) leasing companies provide vehicles to the central fleet. Registration plates sometimes have a name on them (Grosvenor in the case of the van shown here), while tax disc holders also used to often have names on them. One thing is known though, and that is that the majority of vehicles, once returned at the end of their lease, seem to end up being sold by British Car Auctions. This is good news for us, since the BCA website lists all vehicles coming up for sale along with their registration numbers. Probably as a result of the introduction of the Ultra Low Emission Zone in April 2019, a large number of vehicles have been disposed of in the past few weeks, including at least 17 that were put up at BCA Blackbushe on 18th April. Fortunately Derek paid a visit on this date. Unfortunately, a lot of the service vehicles had already gone. Among the vehicles that were on site were some that were to be auctioned the following week. These included Renault Kangoo van 7783R, latterly based at Stratford Market Depot and very much a 'night-time only' vehicle. When photographed it still had a full set of lettering. Also visible in this view are high-roof Ford Transit van 7722F in LUL livery, and Cycle Hire Fiat Ducato box truck LD65WBT.
