Finding parking for these important events can be a real challenge. Luckily, with ParqEx, you don’t have to worry that you won’t be able to find a parking space when you arrive at your destination. Simply plug your destination into the app and find a parking space. Then, reserve it just for you! When you arrive, you’ll be able to pull straight in–often into protected parking areas, parking garages, and other areas. Thanks to the ParqEx app, you can plan ahead for your parking needs, rather than having to hope for the best when you get there. Of course, you’ll also want to be sure that you arrive with plenty of time so that you’re able to secure your entrance to the biggest events of the weekend! With the ParqEx app, you can even choose a parking space that’s designed to fit your specific needs. Check out pictures or look for parking spaces that:
- Are designed to fit a bigger vehicle
- Won’t require you to back out at the end of the night (particularly important in high-traffic areas)
- Offer additional security, like gated garages or password-protected locations
- Keep you in well-lit areas that are more likely to be filled with people, instead of sending you wandering off alone
Do you have a parking space that you won’t be using over July 4th weekend? Whether you’re heading out of town for the weekend and know that you’ve got parking in an area that will be filled with holiday traffic, you have a space that you never use, or you’ve got space that’s usually a work area that you won’t be using thanks to the holiday, you can sell your parking space and make a little extra money off of the increased traffic for the holiday weekend. Simply:
- Register with ParqEx
- Take pictures of the parking space and what’s around it so that customers will be able to find it and decide whether or not it’s right for them
- Include any important details about the parking space
