If you are a business owner or run an organization that has a large parking lot, there is a good chance you've had problems with people misusing the parking space you provide. The problem most business owners face with misuse of their parking spaces is that it's difficult to regulate parking issues without help. Instead of trying to have your employees deal with parking problems, you can have a tow company monitor your lot and help you maintain order for your customers. Here are some of the services tow companies can provide various businesses and other entities:
Tow Companies Help Provide Adequate Warning to People Who May Illegally Park
Whether you have a parking garage for employees or a parking lot that is adjacent to another business's parking lot, tow companies will help you properly mark restricted parking areas with custom signs. Tow companies are required by law in most cities to place visible signs on the areas that they regulate, and they will put signs up that indicate that they are representing your business. Each sign has to be visible at each entry point of the regulated lot to be legal. For employee parking lots, it may be required to post that a specific permit is required to park in a designated area. Placing warnings signs throughout your parking lot will help prevent most people from illegally parking.
Tow Companies Can Use Alternatives to Towing for First Time Offenders
Some companies and organizations prefer not to have people towed if they can avoid it, especially if it's one of their own loyal customers that's an offender. Ticketing and various forms of tracking are sometimes an alternative to towing for first time offenders. Among the best ways to regulate bad parking offenses and prevent a customer from being towed is to have your tow service place parking boots on first time offending cars. A parking boot is placed on the rear wheel of a car, and it keeps the vehicle suspended so it can't be driven. This service comes with a smaller fee for removal than what would be charged for towing.
Tow Companies Will Quickly Remove Vehicles That Are in Restricted Areas
Depending on your parking issues and how busy your parking lot is, parking lot monitoring can be done every hour. If you have a really busy business or organization and need to keep fire lanes or other areas clear for safety reasons, then all day or all night tow services may be something you'll want to have. If a tow company knows that you have enough parking issues that they will make a lot of money from booting or tows, they won't charge as much of fee to you for providing their services. To save the most on parking regulation services, especially if you have a long term need for regulation, you'll save money on fees by entering a yearlong or more contract with your tow company.
A parking lot that is properly regulated makes things a lot better for your employees and for your loyal customers. Customers that find it hard to park because of people misusing your lot may stop coming to your business or organization. It's worth it to implement the above services of a tow company to keep your parking area organized and easy to access for patrons.
