Lakeland parking lot paving is not all about costs and none about earning a profit. In fact, the investment part is the smallest factor in considering a quality parking lot pavement. If you want your business to prosper, it’s always a good thing to have facilities that customers are willing to pay for. This is why as a businessman, one of the things you have to prioritize is the amenities and facilities that your business can offer to customers.
Here are some more ways on how you can use your parking lot to boost your business’ income:
Set a parking fee
Your parking lot need not always be for free. You can earn from it by asking your customers to pay a fee per hour. You can also offer to have a space rented for a month and your customers will have to pay you a fixed amount. This way, you can maintain the quality of your parking lot from the fees you will get from your clients.
Open it up 24/7
Why do you need to close your parking lot when the store is also closed? You can hire a security guard and have the parking lot open 24/7. There are lots of people out there who are looking and searching for parking spaces at wee hours of morning. Your parking lot can accommodate these people, who are willing to pay a fee for the safety of their vehicles and belongings.
Partner with a carwash company
How busy are people these days? So busy that they don’t have time to take their vehicles to a carwash facility. That being said, why don’t you partner with a carwash company. They can send people over to offer carwash services while your customers are in your store. You can have a portion of the income since you are providing the location and the resources—water, electricity, etc.
Employ a car mechanic
There will be a time when a customer would have a car problem. What would you do? How would you be able to help him? Hire a car mechanic who can offer such services to your customers when a car problem arises. You can have a portion of the fee since you are basically bringing potential customers to this mechanic. If it’s not possible to have a small space in your lot for the mechanic, you can have an on-call mechanic also.
