The Future of Parking Garages

With the world population rising rapidly, there are also more cars on the road. With more cars means there needs to be more parking. Standard parking garages have space consuming ramps and access lanes that never get parked on. New state of the art automated parking garages can provide a more space-efficient and cost-efficient parking option.

The robotic technologies used in the new parking garages allow for more cars to be parked in a small amount of space. When you don’t have to worry about people parking their cars themselves, you don’t need high ceilings for people to walk under and you have space-efficient compact boxes for the cars. You can also eliminate the ramps that people drive up to find a spot and add more parking spaces.parking garage

The automated parking garages can hold at least twice the amount of vehicles that a standard parking garage can, offering double the income to the garage owner. There are also no attendants required, so it cost far less to run the garage. There are also many benefits for the car owners too. There are no accidents, dents, scratches, or break-ins. Only the computer can move the cars and no one else has access to your vehicle, giving you peace of mind. It also takes less than three minutes to get your car back, with the computer retrieving it for you instead of you having to search all over for where you parked.

The AutoMotion fully automated parking garage system was opened just last month in New York City. The garage offers patrons with attendant-free, fully automatic parking of vehicles, with no risk for damage or stolen property. No one ever enters you vehicle and it is retrieved by a simple swipe of a card. There is no tipping, no idling of the engine waiting in a busy parking garage, and no chance of accidents. The future of parking garages is the automated systems being used around the world already.

Car Capsules: Vehicle Storage Solutions

Car CapsuleMany people own a car that they prize highly. Car enthusiasts invest a tremendous amount of time and money into their vehicles. Collectors learn every detail regarding how their car should look and run. Hot rod fans take this information and alter vehicles to express their own vision. Antique car buffs, muscle car fans, and sports car aficionados each appreciate the styling and mechanics of autos to a higher degree than the average person.

Collector cars often require specialty parts and paint schemes that aren’t available at the neighborhood garage or parts store. Antique car buffs, muscle car fans, and sports car aficionados may own one vehicle or several. Restoring and maintaining a car can be expensive. Auto storage options can also be pricey, and often require a degree of trust that the vehicle will not be in harm’s way due to exposure to various elements. Rare and exceptional vehicles are of financial and historic value, and classic car collectors take on the responsibility of protecting these assets.

For the expense and energy put into owning and maintaining a prized vehicle, keeping it protected from costly mishaps is very important. Car capsules are a vehicle storage solution that is both economical and effective. Car capsules encase a vehicle in an inflatable bubble of protection that guards against dents, scratches, and dust. A fan keeps air circulating, so cars are also protected from mildew and rot.

The capsule itself is flame, mildew, and rot resistant and creates an enclosed environment that can withstand a blow from a hammer. Vehicles stored in car capsules won’t be damaged by an errant rake or broom handle. The herculite base is impervious to oil, antifreeze, and gas. Car capsules are a great way to display and protect vehicles. Just as display cases keep model car collections safe from harm, car capsules protect collector cars. Car capsules come in various sizes to accommodate different body styles and dimensions.
