After a long day at work and a commute home that feels even longer, all you want to do is jump out the car and get your slippers on! You’re going to have to park first though, and when you’re already having a stressful day these common parking problems can really start to grind your gears…
Your Neighbour Nicked Your Spot
This is probably the number one complaint from people who share a parking area with neighbours, and short of leaving a passive-aggressive post it note on the windshield it can be difficult to resolve – especially if parking spaces aren’t specifically designated to individual houses.
You end up driving all the way around the block, to find a space that’s a good couple of minutes away from your home… a couple of minutes that you’ll now spend muttering angrily under your breath as you hurry through the cold.
You’re Boxed in Before Work
If you live down a narrow street, there is nothing more frustrating than getting up in the morning and finding that you’ve been boxed in. As time creeps on and you start to worry about missing the morning meeting you can hammer on the neighbour’s front door all you like – but if they’re still catching up on their beauty sleep you might end up stranded at your own home!
Snow and Ice
Not one that applies to everybody, but if you’ve experienced the pain of shovelling snow at 6am simply to make sure that you’ll have room to park when you get home, you’ll know exactly how stressful it can get.
Combine this with problem number one and you have a real recipe for disaster – what could be worse than having all your hard work wasted when the spot is stolen by the noise-makers down at number 28?
Even those of us that don’t live in snowy parts of the world know just how annoying it can be to set your alarm 20 minutes early just to make time for de-icing the car…
If any of the items on this list sound familiar then you’re in luck: there is one simple solution that can solve them all! By renting a garage that’s near to your home, you can ensure that you always have a parking spot reserved – and you don’t have to exert any energy getting your car, or your parking spot, ready in the morning.
