Has your business contributed to the constantly improving re-charging network, by having electric car parking facilities installed?
Electric cars have dramatically increased in popularity in the UK. Sales of electric vehicles (EVs) increased by 76% in 2021, and it is estimated that there are now 400,000 pure-electric cars and over 750,000 plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) on UK roads, according to heycar.
This spike in popularity is a combination of high petrol prices, a much wider choice of electric cars available, a government grant for electric vehicles of up to £2,500 and a shift in the attitude towards electric cars and the constantly improving public re-charging network.
The popularity of EV use is only set to grow over the next several years as more drivers switch to electric, which is why your business should be ensuring you are catering to this for your customers.
We assume that if your business has a customer car park, you have already catered to the needs of the majority of your customers, through having features such as disabled parking bays, mother and baby spaces and motorcycle spaces installed; but, do you have electric car charge points and spaces installed in your car park?
What businesses tend to forget is that their car park is actually the first thing a customer will see of their business, and it is also where they will form their first impression of that business. This is why it is vital that your car park is accurately marked, clean and easy to use, with a professional finish and markings in conjunction with Health and Safety guidelines.
By catering to the needs of all of your customers within your car park, you can ensure that your car park is efficient and gives off the best possible impression of your business. Not only this, but your business can also be seen to be contributing to the re-charging network, by facilitating electric car charging for your customers.
We have installed a number of electric car parking spaces for a variety of clients to help them keep up with this development in driving technology, with requests becoming more and more popular.
