Protect Your Car (from People Who Can’t Park)

January 21st, 2015 Posted by Car, Garage, Parking, Safety No Comment yet

You could be the best driver in the world, but that won’t always keep your car safe. Unfortunately, there are plenty of people out there who don’t have your vehicle’s best interests at heart, and they could very easily leave your car in worse shape than you found it. However, there’s still hope for you and your vehicle — that’s why we at ParqEx are here to help. Here are a few tips on how to Protect Your Car (from People Who Can’t Park)

• Park in a garage. Parking inside a garage is one of the best ways to keep your car safe from fellow drivers. If you don’t have your own garage, you can very easily rent one of these private spots for a very reasonable price on ParqEx. Hosts will love making a few extra bucks while you love knowing your car is safe from harm and crazy drivers.

• Park in a private area. Take your car to a secluded area to prevent others from tapping into your bumper. This doesn’t mean you’re relegated to the woods, though; there are plenty of private, controlled access spots you can rent, even in big cities like Chicago. ParqEx offers dozens of listings to choose from as you find the best one for you.

• Park during the day. The day time tends to lead to more crowded parking, but it’s also when folks feel more accountable. In the light of day, people are more likely to be careful and watch what they’re doing — even if it’s only because other people can see them. Make sure you’ve got a spot in the day time by using ParqEx and reserving it early.

Commit these tips to heart. With a little luck and help from us, you (and your car) will stay in tip top shape!

Travel these Holidays Without the Headache

January 21st, 2015 Posted by Chicago Travel Tips, Holidays, Parking No Comment yet

The holidays are supposed to be a time of joy and cheer. So why is traffic and parking always such a nightmare? It seems like people’s inner Grinch decides to come out, and we’re left with “coal,” like being cut off on the road, getting honked at, and feeling like driving is the worst thing in the world (after these other folks on the road, that is).

Well, it may surprise you to know this, but there are ways to avoid these car-related holiday blues. You’ll be able to forget the tragedy that is traffic issues and focus on what’s really important around this time of year!

Travel these Holidays Without the Headache. Here’s what you can do:

• Avoid traveling the day before. Guess what? That’s what everyone is doing. Make your drive easier and your stress levels lower by traveling two days before, if possible. This gets you off the road before most people have even gotten on it, making for a breezy trip.

• Travel on the holiday. Couldn’t get off of work two days before the holiday? That’s okay. Actual travel on a holiday is also super simple. Make sure you get an early start, and you can be sure you’ll spend most of your time with your family and friends — not the folks on the parkway.

• Drive back on Sunday. People like to finish up their long weekends at home to rest up, which makes traffic substantially worse on Saturday. By choosing to go back Sunday, you get the most out of your time off (including less time on the road).

As for your holiday parking woes, you can trust ParqEx to find you a great spot. If you want something protected from snow, ice or just crazy holiday drivers, we make it easy for you to find something covered and safe from your surroundings. And you don’t have to worry about breaking into your gift giving budget either; our prices are set by your fellow community members, so they’re reasonable and affordable. City driving and parking has never been so simple, especially in those frosty, windy cities like NYC and Chicago. So whether you need a spot for the long holiday weekend or just for a few hours of last-minute shopping, we’ve got a spot that’ll work for you — that’s our gift to you!
