6 tips for parking
ONEPARK is a service company, which is ultimately there for you as a motorist. The purpose of our service is to make sure that the provisions for parking are complied with and that there will always be the best parking conditions available to you.
Therefore, we would like to give you 6 tips, so you have a better opportunity to comply with the rules and avoid having to pay an inspection fee.
1. ORIENTATE YOURSELF ABOUT THE SIGNS
Private car parks are signposted at the entrance with a black sign with a white P. There are also signs setup at spaces informing about the provisions in the car park.
You must ensure that you comply with all the provisions on the signs.
TIP! Read each line and decide for yourself whether the parking you are just about to do is in accordance with the rules of the given site.
2. PARKING WITHIN THE BAY’S LINES
Always be sure to keep within the lines of the bay, if you park in a bay.
TIP! If it is not possible to keep within the lines if other cars, for example, have parked crooked, so find another space where you can observe the rules.
3. SET THE PARKING DISC CORRECTLY
The parking disc must be set to display the time that you parked your car. However, you can set the time to the end of the quarter, when you started parking.
TIP! Note that you may only have one parking disc in the windscreen at a time. Service personnel cannot clearly determine whether it is one or the other that are applicable – even if one is electronic.
Also remember to check your electronic parking disc, to check it is set correctly before you leave the car.
4. PLACE YOUR PARKING PERMIT and TICKET VISIBLY IN THE WINDSCREEN
Parking permits and purchased parking tickets must be visible and readable in the windscreen with the front side up, so service personnel can easily read them.
TIP! Always check from the outside before you leave, just as service personnel will.
5. IF YOU ARE IN DOUBT – USE YOUR COMMON SENSE
If you are in doubt, rather go back and check if your parking complies with the rules in force for that car park – so you avoid an inspection fee.
TIP! If you encounter ONEPARK service personnel in the car park, you can always ask for help and ask questions about parking. They will be more than happy to assist you.
6. FLEXIBLE MOBILE PAYMENT
EasyPark, PARKPARK and ParkMan are mobile apps with which you can pay at the car parks that require it. With the apps you can start, extend and stop your parking time, so it fits the time you have to spend on parking.
