Enterprise responds to increased demand in areas hit by Sandy

By Danny King
Enterprise Holdings is adding more than 27,000 vehicles to its fleet in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut to meet the jump in demand from consumers, insurance companies and government in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

Enterprise, which operates its eponymous brand as well as Alamo and National, is responding to what it calls “unprecedented demand” in the New York-New Jersey area since Superstorm Sandy struck the East Coast late last month.

Enterprise temporarily closed more than 400 East Coast outlets and sustained damage to almost 1,000 vehicles from the storm.

The company has processed more than 26,000 insurance-related rentals for customers whose vehicles were damaged from the storm.

Besides moving vehicles to the Tri-State area from other parts of the U.S., Enterprise will temporarily divert some of its newly purchased vehicles to the area.
