Normally, you may not think
choosing a parking garage would be a big deal. Whether you’re storing your vehicle for a few
hours or weeks, you should make sure the garage is well-protected, well-priced,
and up to your standards. Here are three attributes to look for when choosing
a parking garage.
When you enter a parking garage, analyze your surroundings for any possible
safety concerns. Look for bright and efficient lighting throughout the
complex. Make sure the elevators and staircases are well lit and undamaged.
Choose your parking space away from dark corners, tight spaces, or anywhere
you could be caught unaware in an enclosed space. Keep your valuables
hidden and lock your vehicle. Pay attention to local crime and theft reports
in case specific garages are being targeted.
Parking garages are designed to pack in as many cars as possible, but still,
you should stay away from the ones that are overstuffed with tiny parking
spaces. The spaces should be wide enough to accommodate most vehicles.
If the parking spaces seem too close to the entrance and exit, or are
oddly configured in order to maximize room, you may want to avoid that
garage. You should feel comfortable finding a space, parking your car,
and getting in and out without difficulty.
Some garages have you pay primarily through automated machines, which is
fine, but there should also be employees walking around. These employees
should be monitoring strange activity in the garage, as well as any malfunctions
that might occur with automated systems. Keep a look out for cameras near
your car. In case of emergency or theft, there should be video evidence
of the event.
