Some people feel natural and comfortable behind the wheel of a car while others experience anxiety. However, knowing what you are doing can help eliminate this anxiety. Watch this video for tips on how to back into a parking spot.
To back into a parking spot on the right, pull your car to the left to create a favorable angle that allows you to swing the back of your car into the spot. Back your car up to the left line of the parking space, and cut the wheel to your right when your rear fender crosses over. This will create another angle that will allow you to back into the spot.
When you have mastered backing into a parking spot, back into a parking spot at Champion Parking. We have been providing New York City with high-quality parking services since 1949. Visit our website or call us at (646) 402-6984 to learn about our off-street parking and parking garages today.

New York City is full of history and culture, and is often referred to as the greatest city in the world. As a testament to the strength of the city and of the United States of America as a whole, the 9/11 Memorial was established in response to the terrorist attacks against the World Trade Center. If you find yourself in New York City, do not forget to explore the 9/11 Memorial.
The purpose of the 9/11 Memorial is to recognize the heroism, selflessness, and honor displayed by countless American citizens on September 11th, 2001. This site stands in memoriam of the thousands of lives that were lost during the tragic terrorist attacks. The 9/11 Memorial is a reminder of the strength, courage, and dedication that is associated with the American citizen, and represents the American peoples’ will to survive and flourish. This memorial recognizes both the victims of the attacks and the individuals who risked their lives to help their community on September 11th.
The memorial exhibition allows visitors to learn about the individuals who lost their lives during the terrorist attacks. Photographs of all of the victims line the entrance to the exhibition in an attempt to convey the massive loss that was caused by the terrorist attacks. Along with a portrait photograph, additional pictures, belongings, and audio recordings represent each victim.
The best way to reach the 9/11 Memorial is by public transportation. The memorial is located at the site of the World Trade Center. Due to the difficulties many people have with driving through lower Manhattan by car, it is recommended that you find a parking garage somewhere uptown and visit the memorial via subway or bus.

Before leaving town, even car owners with their own personal garages have to take precautions if they want the peace of mind of knowing that their cars will be in good condition upon their return. Leaving your car in a NYC parking garage for a few weeks or months requires many of the same precautions, plus a few additional measures.
Regularly washing your car inside and out can prevent corrosive body damage and make your car's interior less attractive to rodents and other unwelcome critters. To further discourage rodents, block your tailpipe and other access points with steel wool and strategically place mothballs throughout the interior.
If you are almost due for an oil change, or plan to be away from your parked car for several weeks, swap out the oil and replace the engine oil filter. This eliminates contaminants that can damage the engine and ensures that your car's oil will be at a level that is safe for driving when you return to it.
Attend to the Battery
Returning to a dead battery is an inconvenience that nobody wants to deal with after a business trip or vacation. To prevent your battery from failing while you are away, ensure that all battery terminals are free from debris and trickle-charge your battery using a battery tender while you are away.
Add Fuel Stabilizer
To prevent condensation from accumulating in your fuel tank and compromising the integrity of your diesel or petrol, add stabilizer to your fuel tank. To ensure that the fuel stabilizer is well-mixed, drive a few miles after adding and before parking.
Protect your car from the elements while you are away by choosing a parking garage that offers comprehensive cover. For additional protection, wrap your car in a fitted vehicle cover.
If you have yet to find a NYC parking garage with which you are completely satisfied, try parking at one of Champion Parking’s 50 convenient locations. To learn more about our secure, covered parking garages and premium parking services, call (646) 402-6984.

Leaving a car in a parking garage for an extended period of time often makes drivers wonder whether their cars will still be in working condition when they return, or if the car will still there at all. By parking in a reliable parking garage and taking the precautions discussed in this video, you can put such concerns to rest.
Regularly cleaning your car, keeping up with the recommended maintenance schedule outlined in your owner’s manual, and seeking covered parking are all essential for long-term car storage. Sealing off tail pipes, filter inlets, and other openings can keep critters from crawling into your car and wreaking havoc.
The parking garage you choose to store your car in really does matter. To speak with an experienced representative of NYC’s premier parking garage, Champion Parking, call (646) 402-6984.

A handful of people seem to be natural-born parkers, but most have put in a lot of practice to park efficiently in tight spaces. If you are looking for some tips that will help you improve your parking skills, you’ve come to the right place.
For most drivers, parallel parking is the hardest type of parking to master. Many driving instructors recommend practicing parallel parking in an empty parking lot or other appropriate place until you are familiar enough with how various changes in wheel direction can help you maneuver into a street-side parking space, no matter how snug. Parking in most lots and parking garages, on the other hand, generally requires very little practice.
The streets of New York are known for their notoriously difficult-to-find-and-park-in parallel parking spots. If you know where to look, however, you can find affordable, easy-entry angled or perpendicular parking spots in NYC parking garages. To find out which Champion Parking garage is nearest you, visit us online or call (646) 402-6984.
