If you own or manage a car parking, you would know that people are always asking for better. They always have trouble finding a parking spot, and it’s always difficult for them to park in the right way. A lot of people don’t like to walk so much after parking their cars.
All their anger and complaints are channeled toward the manager or owner of the parking area. If you have been facing the issue or simply just want to improve user experience, here are a few tips to make your car parking more efficient.
Implement Parking Management Software
There are now pretty advanced parking management systems available that make your job a lot easier. In fact, you don’t even have to hire anyone if you do everything right. Try to install a sensor at every parking point. Every time a car is parked there, the sensor will turn red, and it will appear on the screen. You will be able to see all parking spots that are filled or empty on your screen. You can also install those screens around the parking area so people can navigate themselves. They won’t have to keep looking for a spot. They will be able to see which spots are empty on a screen placed at the entrance or at corners.
Get All Asphalt Repair Done Efficiently
Nothing will get you complaints like a damaged road in a car parking system. It’s already difficult enough to navigate through narrow lines and park a car, a damaged road makes the process even more challenging. This can also damage the cars of your customers. Make sure you get asphalt repairs as soon as any issues arise instead of waiting. These damages only increase with time. The more you wait, the more damage will increase and the more complaints you will get.
Install Cameras at the Entrance and Exit
If you have to generate a token for each vehicle that enters your parking, you don’t have to hire a person for that. It will be too stressful for one person to handle this at peak hours. Besides, there is no need to pay a monthly salary and benefits for such a small and redundant job. If you install cameras, they can catch the license plate number and print a small token. The cameras can also check the same car’s license plate at the exit. You will have a complete automated log of every car and enter and exit your car parking system.
Consider Angles and Space for Each Car
You have to decide how much space you can manage for each car and how much you should save for the lines. If the line is too narrow, it will not be possible to park the car. If the spot is too small, every passing car will keep hitting it. Leave space for a large car with more than enough space to open doors on both sides. Furthermore, consider diagonal car parking for more efficient and easier parking.
