For many people, a car is a necessity. You need to be able to get to and from work at various times of the day, or night. You also need to be able to transport your family and take the children to the various different activities and social interactions that they enjoy.
However, having a vehicle means you need somewhere to park it. Parking in the street is not always a good option. After all, there is no guarantee that there will be a space available or that you will be parked legally. Don’t forget that illegally parked vehicles can be towed and it can be expensive, as well as inconvenient to get your vehicle back.
In fact, there are five compelling reasons why, if you have the room, you need your own parking space
If you have a parking space then you know exactly where you are going to park and how far it is from your front door. That is useful when you are in a rush or experiencing bad weather. The predictability of your car is in a designated space ensures that many things in life are easier, even packing your car for a vacation.
A parking space gives you some protection from vandals or anyone wanting to steal your car. Of course, if you have the space then you should consider investing in a Double carport, this offers even greater protection from anyone wishing to damage or steal your vehicle. Alongside this, a carport over your space will protect your car from the elements. Wind and rain can cause damage to a car but the sun causes a lot more. Its rays can quickly damage the paintwork and the upholstery. A designated space with a carport eliminates this issue.
When you have your own parking space you never need to waste time and fuel looking for a space to park in. You have a dedicated space and can head straight to it, allowing you to park effortlessly and get on with what matters to you.
4. Increased Value
If you have an off-road car space, with or without a carport, you will be adding value to your property. It doesn’t matter if you plan to sell or not, adding value is always a beneficial thing. In fact, it makes adding a parking space an investment.
5. Additional Income
If you have a parking space and never use it between certain times or have a spare parking space you can actually rent it out and earn yourself some extra money. That is a pretty good incentive to get yourself a parking space!
Of course, the fact that you have a dedicated space and can keep your car off-road will also help your annual insurance premium, reducing it.
The more you think about owning a car parking space the more you will see the savings possible and see that there really is no downside to owning a parking space, and perhaps adding a carport.
