5 hacks to find parking spots faster
As a business owner, you sometimes find yourself fighting over parking. For me, it's often with my partner. When I'm late to work and she's parked in the spot I always park in, I can get pretty steamed. And it doesn't help that she thinks I am always getting upset over some small thing. The reality is that parking is valuable real estate. Just like a hotel room or seats on an airplane, there are fixed costs associated with any given spot.
Let’s be honest. Parking is a pain.
Whether you just want to go to the store, take the kids to school, or do anything else on your daily schedule, it can be a total nightmare trying to find the perfect parking spot. Parking has a way of being at the center of many arguments, especially when you're trying to find a place to park in a crowded parking lot. But now there is an alternative solution.
MobbyPark is the Internet where you can connect with people who are willing to rent their parking spaces, left or right out of their own vehicles. By renting land left in your vehicle, you'll have a better chance of discovering free parking or be able to get to your destination faster than ever before.
Have you ever gotten into an argument over the use of a parking spot? If so, you're not alone. In my new book, MobbyPark.
MobbyPark is a free service that helps you deal with parking issues at your neighborhood mall, workplace, or anywhere else you're on the lookout for parking garages in your area.
The next time you and your partner find yourselves arguing over the same parking space, try thinking about the cost of lost revenue and lost time over a long period of time.
Then consider how much better off you'd be if you could get somewhere else to park.One of the biggest problems I had as a mall manager was that my customers were always complaining about parking. My typical advice to them was,
just move your car.
When you’re at the mall, take care not to disrupt others who are trying to enjoy their time in one of the most popular destinations on foot. Even people that aren't shoppers prefer to eat at restaurants near a mall near places like Victoria's Secret or Lime.
So if you want to avoid dining arguments with your significant other, think long-term about revenue from lost sales by avoiding parking spots that can cause convenience problems to nearby residents.
Parking is a stressful and challenging issue for any mall, especially in these days of ever-rising traffic congestion.
The math alone behind trying to find the optimal parking strategy for a large mini-mall is enough to give you a headache. Our new app not only helps you make sure that every spot is taken advantage of, it also helps reduce traffic so mall patrons can get in and out quicker.
