Car Storage is a Necessity
There are tens of millions of cars produced every year in the world. Car sales have a tendency to fluctuate throughout the year meaning that potentially a substantial number of these cars need to be stored for indefinite amounts of time. Every effort is made to only produce the number of cars that will be sold, but slow sales and over-forecasting can lead to an increased need to store those extra cars until they are ready to be moved to the sales lots and sold.
In some cases the number of cars that need to be stored can be very large and the amount of time for storage can be long-term. This means there can be a great need to have an efficient and cost-effective manner to park and store these extra vehicles while waiting for the dealerships to move inventory.
Car lift parking systems provide the opportunity to safely park many vehicles in a relatively small space. Since the number of vehicles in need of being stored can be in the hundreds or even in the thousands, conserving space is absolutely a priority. The ability to lift cars and park them more than one vehicle high streamlines the efficiency of the system making them a prime solution whenever saving space is a necessity.
Types of Car Lift Parking Systems
Some companies have over 40 years of research and development in car lift parking systems and today offer a full line of parking systems designed to handle all situations. All systems are designed to give at least double the parking capacity of the traditional (one car in one parking space) model. Hydraulic motors make it easy to lift cars up and park them on top of each other.
The typical types of car lift parking systems are:
Fully Automatic Parkers
These systems all offer different levels of car volumes that can be handled as well as different levels of computer automation. Computer automation further facilitates the process of parking and retrieving vehicles and helps to ensure that the vehicles are parked in the most efficient manner possible with the use of computer algorithms.
In most cases these car lift parking systems can be customized to make them perfect for any parking needs. There is generally a system available for every parking scenario, but in the case of a special request these systems can usually be altered to make a perfect fit. Expansion is also usually possible if the parking needs increase in the future.
More than Car Storage
Car lift parking systems have come a long way in terms of design and functionality. No longer are they just known for their functionality, they are also becoming popular because of their style.
In some cases car dealers are not just using these systems to store the extra cars in a warehouse, but also to showcase cars at the dealership. This usage shows how the looks of the system are quickly catching up to the functionality and increasing the uses for these units.
