Most of us have encountered a few types of parking lots: overcrowded parking lots which are complicated to enter or exit and those which are convenient to use, comfortable, safe and organized.

Most companies operating lots for parking Israel, especially in the very overcrowded central Israel area, face similar crowding conditions – there aren’t many available open spaces assigned for parking lots in central areas of cities however, the demand for parking spaces is high. At the same time, a good parking lot design, which includes smart use of the area, and having a parking lot operator with initiative will aid in preventing mishaps, make parking easy and can make all the difference between a great parking lot, like Success Parking, and one that you would never want to come back to again.

Design and service level in parking Israel
From the very first moment, parking lot design, whether it be for a multi-level underground parking lot or an above ground, open space parking lot, is done by an expert engineer in accordance with The Ministry of Transportation regulations, which details the specific authorized parking length, marking form, ramp structure and many other characteristics.

The Ministry of Transportation guidelines are meant to provide parking for as many cars as possible, without hindering safety or the minimal convenience of those using the parking lots.

The leading concept in parking Israel is ‘service level’ and it refers to the convenience in which you can park – from the minimal space needed to be allocated in order to conveniently open the car door when exiting the vehicle until allocation of special, accessible, parking spots for the disabled.

Markings and signage in Success Charging

Clear markings of the parking spots in the parking lot is a basic element which allows every car owner to park safely, without endangering his car or an adjacent one and without taking up unnecessary space.

The bigger and more complex the parking lot, the more important clear signage becomes in order for drivers to easily locate the entrance and exits.

Success Parking makes sure to highlight and renew marks and signs on the ground periodically in their parking lots in order to provide safe and order for parking lot users, even after dark.

The job of the parking lot supervisor
Even if it seems that the parking lot supervisor’s only job is to take your money and open the gate, in Success Charging all supervisors are instructed to take initiative and be service oriented in order to provide quick entrance and exit to drivers and prevent problems such as difficulty parking or parking in an unsafe spot.

The supervisor is also in charge of guiding car owners to open parking spots in the facility, locating car owners who parked incorrectly and correcting them as well help Drivers Park in their chosen spot – all of this in order to ensure convenience and safety for the car owner and those who come in later wanting to enjoy smooth parking Israel.

Parking lots are public spaces with unique characteristics. Naturally, they require periodical maintenance which includes cleaning services allowing for convenient and sanitary use by car owners.

As they enter the parking lot, cars also bring in various kinds of dirt: dust, mud, tire marks, oil, fuel and more. Some of the above require intensive cleaning which differs greatly from house cleaning or any other type of public, open space, cleaning. Amongst other things, it is very important to remove oil and fuel stains in order to prevent cars and pedestrians from sliding or slipping and make sure that in doing so, the marking on the ground is still highly visible.

Parking lot owners need to ensure the facilities they operate are cleaned periodically as well as make sure that nuisances, which could easily become safety, hazards be cleaned immediately.

Cleaning services in Success Parking lots
There are several cleaning companies specializing in parking lot cleaning which lend their services to parking lot companies such as Success Charging. They offer a service package from which parking lot operators can choose which services they want to order and which they will take care of themselves, using company employees.

The main services offered in the parking lot cleaning service package are:
• mopping and washing the parking area using mechanical washing machines
• washing the parking lot, or the parts of it which have oil and fuel stains, using special cleaning products
• washing sidewalks, walls and ramps using a high pressure water hose

Special cleaning services
There are some instances when more action is needed in order to tackle a cleaning hazard. Underground parking lots are especially prone to such hazards, more specifically – flooding or sewage eruption during the winter, even if they are built in accordance with all rules and regulations.

Parking lot owners can’t take responsibility for the city sewage infrastructure as well as the underground parking lots they operate. However, because of their location in relation to the ground, when a flood or a sewage malfunction occurs, they are the first to suffer.

That is why cleaning companies who specialize in parking lot maintenance offer water pumping services, using advanced equipment, in order to return the parking lot to working order and provide car owners with safe and convenient parking.

Another service offered by cleaning companies is cleaning and renewing of the signage in the parking lot using resistant paint. Success Parking performs such cleaning and signage renewal periodically because it greatly improves order, safety and convenience for the parking lot users.

Parking for Early Transportation in the 1400’s

This type of parking was used until the late 1800’s when automobiles were invented.  Until Ford, though, cars were made slowly, so not many people had them.

One evident and erratic thing the car brought was the need for its own storeroom. The early motorcars, expensive playthings for the wealthy, inhabited in old carriage houses or stables. Slowly but surely, the carriage house grew into a structure of its own: a spit-and-polish refurbishing shop for the car, regularly with a chauffeur-cum-mechanic living above and even a gas pump out front.
