ParqEx, found online at ParqEx.com, is a new mobile application that wants to help people earn money by listing their private parking spot when they aren’t using it, helping to alleviate parking problems in highly populated neighborhoods.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, ParqEx describes themselves as a company that is helping to solve the urban parking challenge by connecting owners of private parking spaces with people who are looking for parking.
This mobile application allows people to get access to exclusive, private parking spaces based on your current location or based on the address you are searching. When you find the ideal spot for your needs, you can reserve a spot with the tap of a button and then have the ability to park your car by the hour, day, week, or month.
Owners are invited to set their own prices for their parking spaces and they will receive 85% of the rental fee for their parking spot which is paid out each week. In addition, this website promises that they let owners decide when and to they will rent out their spots, so they always feel safe and in control of their own parking spot.
This company says that their mobile application is available for both iOS and Android devices at this time.
Owners of the private parking spaces are able to set their own pricing for their spaces, and their website says that you are welcome to look at nearby parking spaces to use as a guide for pricing your own space. Unfortunately it does not appear that they provide customers with an explanation of all fees ParqEx may take from each reservation, so customers will likely want to contact their Customer Service team and get a full explanation of fees before setting up their price.
If you realized that you must cancel your parking reservations more than two hours before the time of your reservation, you will be able to cancel your reservation by going to the app, selecting “Order History” from their menu, choosing the specific reservation you would like to cancel, and then clicking the “Cancel Reservation” button.
If your cancellation is taking place less than two hours from the time of the reservation, you will be required to email their Customer Service team at [email protected] to arrange your refund.
If you show up to your private parking space and see that someone is already parked there, their website asks that customers contact their Customer Service team by phone and they will help you find a nearby parking space that you can use.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to speak to their Customer Service team about their questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 855-PARQEX-1 or clicking the Email Us link on their website.
There are not very many customer reviews of this product at this time, but the few which are available are very positive in tone. It seems as though this company does a good job providing their customers with exactly what they promise – access to good quality private spaces in high demand neighborhoods.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many different mobile applications available which promise to help people find available parking in busy cities, near sporting and entertainment venues, and more. Some of these apps also allow people the ability to rent out their own personal parking spaces for extra income if they choose, so people looking for alternatives to ParqEx will have a variety of choices depending on where they live.
