When you enter a car park you want it to have clear signage so you know where you are meant to park and clearly marked out parking spaces that are wide enough to park in. Sadly this is not always the case.
As a business it’s important your clients and customers to know where they can and cannot park. It can be confusing to turn up somewhere new and not know if you’ve parked in a safe or legal zone..
Having correctly marked parking bays makes sure cars are parked in the correct places, and that you make the best use of your available space. This prevents situations that can arise from poorly parked cars, such as taking up more space restricting access to and from emergency exits or blocking in other customers and staff members.
Having a well laid out and clearly marked car park also creates a great first impression for you and your business. Marking out the car park allows you to allocate different types of spaces and any exclusion zones including:
- Car park spaces
- Disabled parking bays
- Parent and child spaces
- EV charging bays
- Drop off/pick up and
- Loading zones
- Delivery spaces
- Short stay zones
- Yellow lines and hatched areas
- Directional arrows for one way systems
- Pedestrian crossing
- Pedestrian walkways
This is all essential for a good experience for your clients when they visit you because they can clearly tell where they can and can’t park. It is also vital for your Health and Safety obligations.
If you share a car park with other businesses you could consider having your company logo marked on your allocated spaces to avoid confusion.
