There are many ways to earn if you already own a business plus a couple more square meters of space. You can, of course, turn it into a paid parking lot service for your own customers and for the clients of other establishments. Do you know that Haines City parking lot paving spaces are premium these days? There is a void and a bad need for parking spaces everywhere in America. It’s not just in New York that parking spaces are oh-so expensive, mind you. Lakeland, Florida, for example, also charges a hefty fee for simply parking your car on any available space.
So, yes, you can turn your parking space into a business (aside from your actual business). You can rent it out monthly or even annually, especially if your space happens to be near apartment complexes and commercial buildings. Residents of those apartment complexes and workers in those commercial buildings are always looking for where to park their cars. You can offer your parking lot for a fixed rate. That way, you know that you’re going to be paid a certain amount on a particular day. Wouldn’t that create a cushion for you and your other business? The truth is, paid parking is as profitable (if not more profitable) than many of the local stores you see along the streets of Lakeland.
Why? The simple answer is because it answers a fundamental need of people to bring their cars to work or school, park it in a safe place, and go back to it knowing it has been safe all along. People are willing to pay a premium price for that security. With that in mind, you can work on this precedent that people are willing to spend money on their cars by offering a car wash service in your parking lots.
How does this work? Well, you can pay for a franchise of a car wash company that services busy people who don’t have time to go to the car wash station. While their cars are parked, the cleaners can wash it, dry it, and wax it. Wouldn’t that save a lot of time for the workers who seemingly don’t have even a minute to go to a drive-thru car wash station?
More, you can have a convenience store near your parking lot, so that people wouldn’t have to run to the nearest bodega to buy a couple of candies or a pack of cigarette. Be a one-stop shop for everything.
