Four reasons why managing your free parking (properly) is crucial to revenue

Posted by Ryan Miyagishima

At first blush, free parking doesn't sound like something you should spend time or money on, as a property manager or business owner. After all, there isn't a direct revnue stream from it, so why does it matter?

Well, "direct" is the key word here, because when it comes to managing parking at a business, deficiencies might not show up on the surface of the balance sheet... but they could sink it altogether.

3 Reasons To Manage Your Free Parking, Even If You Don't Think You Need To

Posted by Dylan Sharp

There are a lot of misconceptions about the role of free parking for homeowners' associations (and other organizations as well!), but the biggest one is always: "why should we actively manage our free parking, if it's free to use and we can't make money from violation fees?"

As it turns out, there are some excellent reasons to manage your free parking: reasons have nothing to do with revenue but rather with compliance.

And even if you have plenty of parking available, more than your residents and visitors could ever need (and if this is you... can we please move to your area?), compliance with your parking rules is still important.

Our customers and users agree - there are several compelling reasons to manage your free parking, even if you don't think you need to.

Your 3 Worst Multifamily Residential Parking Problems, Solved.

Posted by Dylan Sharp

  • How many times have you come home to find your assigned parking spot taken?
  • Are most of the visitor parking spots in your parking lot taken by the same cars, day after day?
  • Do you find yourself writing down the license plate numbers or problematic parkers to show your superintendent or property manager? (Does it work?)
  • Or do you have very little visitor parking available... so visitors take your spot?

Truthfully, if we had a dollar for every story we'd heard like this... well, we'd be vacationing in the Bahamas most of the time.

The fact is: parking problems are difficult, stressful and drive everyone crazy. And they affect anyone who has a car and lives in a multifamily residential complex: whether you drive a Ford or a Maserati, you've experienced the utter frustration of having someone else park in your spot, or not being able to find visitor parking because someone keeps taking the best parking spots.

Let us tell you a few little stories: the names have been changed, the situations are real. If you recognize yourself - or your building - it might be time to give us a call, or ask your property manager to look into our system

Why You Need To Manage Your Visitor Parking – And How To Do It Properly

Posted by John White

Visitor parking is an essential resource for the people who visit your residents or tenants. If this parking resource is not managed or is mismanaged, it will not provide the benefits you intended it to provide and will cause unnecessary frustration to both you, as a community or property manager, as well as residents and visitors to your property.

There are two primary reasons to manage your visitor parking properly: the resource argument, and the security argument. Although the relative priority of each of these reasons may be different depending on what kind of property you’re managing, both of these reasons are valid, and both of them are important.
