Parking Problem Options
Various Options Are Available to You:
There are usually always solutions to parking problems, with manís ingenuity many products are available from racking systems, to fully automated garages, single and multi-story garages of many different building materials, valet services and busing to name a few. Each site and business model offers its own set of opportunities and challenges, and what works for one site, may not be the best solution for another.
What do you do if you have a parking problem but cannot justify a multi-story garage or racking system because you have insufficient demand to justify the capital outlay required for current and future demand to make the cost-per-space economical? It would be difficult to argue that multi-story concrete garages are scalable, yet everything we do to operate our businesses demands scalability.
Valet services are a good stop-gap measure, they are scalable but do not address the root problem. Once started, valet service keeps going like the Energizer bunny, growing each year, chipping away at your budget until one day you realize that you could have paid for a structure. And while a valet service may sound great, the unspoken pressure is there for your customer to reach into their wallet or handbag and tip, not to mention the inconvenience of having to wait for their vehicle when they have finished their business experience with you.
