5 Ways West Michigan Businesses Can Add Parking Space
When parking lots are sized correctly, they offer ample space for employees or patrons to easily park and navigate the property, without struggling or searching for open space. And if your parking lot is bursting at the seams, there are ways to try to make more of the space you have.
1. Eliminate Any Wasted Space
Depending on your lot, there may be odd corners or edges that (sometimes with a bit of work) can be converted into useable parking of one form or another. Move dumpsters or other items and remember that even areas that are too small for vans, SUVs, or trucks can be striped and marked for compact cars or motorcycle parking.
2. Pave for Variety
Once again, depending on your location and employee or customer base, you may be able to make up more space by re-marking your lot to accommodate different vehicles in different areas. You may set aside a certain area for oversized vehicles and another for compact cars and motorcycles. This strategy can help organize your visitors and make more of tight quarters. Just be sure that you have appropriate signage to avoid confusion down the line.
3. Find a Partner
If there is a nearby business or some other entity with ample, consistently under-utilized parking space you may be able to make an arrangement to designate that property as backup parking. Let your team know about the change and add signage once the deal is finalized.
4. Angled Lines
Many parking lots can benefit from angled parking spaces, as this approach maximizes the number of parking spaces possible and also helps to control traffic movement around your parking lot.
5. Add More Asphalt
Of course, if your lot is completely tapped out, it may be time to covert available space around your lot into new pavement. Grassy areas or unpaved sections can be converted into new parking to give you, your employees, and your customers the room needed for comfortable, convenient daily use.
