If you live in a big city or are in college, there’s a pretty good chance that you’re paying more to park your car than you’re paying for food. If this seems excessive to you, then read on. What happens to that spot when you’re not parked in it? Probably nothing. It seems like a waste to pay so much for it and then leave it open. But now there’s a solution. Here are a few reasons you should rent out your parking spot when you’re not using it.
So this one is pretty obvious. If you rent out your spot, then someone will pay you every time they use it. But it’s still worth mentioning because it’s arguably the most important part. People are willing to pay a lot for parking, especially in big cities, so if you have parking to offer, why shouldn’t some of that money go to you? At the very least, you’ll make a little extra spending cash that you didn’t have before, and if you’re lucky, you may even end up being able to pay off most or all of your parking spot with the money you make renting it out. Either way, it’s hard to turn down free cash.
So you may be picturing yourself standing next to your parking space holding a sign that says “for rent”. Luckily, there’s a system that accomplishes the same thing, but is much easier. Through ParqEx, you can list your spot using an online system. After that, you just leave it until somebody wants to rent your spot. It’s all customizable, and you control pretty much everything. Listing your spot only takes a few minutes, but that few minutes of work can end up earning you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars a year.
The system is completely safe. Your parking spot will still be yours, and will be there whenever you need it. And you can always deny access to a driver, if you choose to.
Connect directly with other drivers
When you use the ParqEx system, you don’t have to deal with a company, or work through some kind of wall designed to separate users. You connect directly with the driver who is interested in your parking space. This illuminates a lot of confusion that can come from separation, because you can simply talk to them, and also eliminates a lot of extra cost. Since the company is only there to help connect drivers to you and your parking spot, and to help out when necessary, it costs very little to operate, and those savings can be passed on to you.
Participate in the advancement of technology
Sharing of things is a trend that has recently been growing at a surprising rate. We now share cars, computers, homes, and a number of other things. More and more we find that sharing things as well as their resource cost can be a very efficient way to live. By sharing your parking space, you become a part of a major movement in technology and in life. People are accepting the concept of sharing things that were once personal into their lives, and by participating in the ParqEx program, you’re becoming a piece of that world too.
Sharing your parking spot has numerous benefits, including being easy, safe, efficient, and exciting, and the best part is that you can earn money in exchange for doing almost nothing.
