Let’s start adding the smart to parking

When it comes to parking, something which takes up a significant time of your everyday routine, some smart hacks can go a long way. We gathered some simple tips which can turn out to be very effective.

Reverse parking

When you are parking in crowded places, like events or shopping marts you might often find yourself getting stuck and delayed on your exit. In times like that, parking in reverse can be a valuable hack as it would allow you an easy exit and you could save yourself some valuable time by avoiding the hassle of getting your car out in limited space. 

Parking on slopes

When you come across an available parking spot on a slope, instead of skipping the spot, as most might, it could be a good idea to park there since there are higher chances of it being available and it could allow for easy access. 

Turn towards the sun when it’s cold

A very simple hack to parking in colder climates and also avoid your windshield from getting covered in frost is to simply turn towards the sun! This super simple hack could save some of the time you would spend every morning scraping off snow from your car.

Free your car’s doors or lock using an alcohol-based sanitizer

If you have faced the situation of having a frozen car door or a frozen door lock, you know how annoying it could get. A simple hack in such situations is to dab some alcohol-based sanitizer or petroleum jelly on your car key and stick it in. The sanitizer liquid will enter the lock and it will start working its magic. While no one can guarantee this will work every time, this generally does and can save you from calling a technician.

Park smart with apps

Relying on technology can relieve you from the mandatory stress associated with parking. Parking apps could be a life-saver in a variety of situations. Starting from saving up some valuable time that you would just spend looking for a parking spot in cities, to helping you park within your budget, these apps can be very effective when you are looking to personalize your parking experience for convenience, time and dollars spent.

This means you can stay away from problems like driving in blind not knowing if spots are available or the overall price per parking spot. Parkaze, a community-powered marketplace offers capabilities to pre-book your parking spots at desired locations for a flexible amount of time. It focuses on the community as a resource to bring in more affordable parking spots into the ecosystem.
