Outside the vast majority of commercial property is car parking space where employees and visitors can park up before entering your premises. Whilst you might not initially think so, your car park plays a vitally important role in the overall function, with a poorly maintained car parking area likely to have a negative impact on your property as a whole.
With first impressions counting for an awful lot in business, detailed below are three reasons why it is essential that your property benefits from a well maintained car park;
#1- Reduce Risk of Damage to Vehicles
The last thing you want when a potential client arrives at your premises to discuss business is for them to suffer damage to their vehicle through the condition of your car park. This will immediately set the meeting off on the wrong footing and also be potentially costly for you to repair if it gets to that stage. A well maintained car park, with all potholes repaired and cracks covered, will nullify this risk and mean clients can arrive at your premises for their meetings without being wary of their cars suffering damage on arrival.
#2 Create an Aesthetically Pleasing and Inviting Environment
As we have already touched on, first impressions mean an awful lot in the business world so an aesthetically pleasing and inviting exterior is always going to be a positive factor. Your car park plays a pivotal role in this as it is likely to be one of the first areas any visitors come across before they get to the building itself. The simple introduction of trees and plants alongside a good tidy up can create the perfect environment where your business is portrayed in the right light and people feel confident leaving their vehicle and possessions.
#3 Develop a Safe Setting
Following on from the previous point, a car park that is kept in good condition and it is clearly visible that the setting is cared for will help settle visitor’s minds that the area is safe. Cars are very valuable commodities with the likelihood for additional expensive accessories being stored inside, so an owner will obviously want to be sure that these will be kept safe whilst inside your property. Well looked after car parking areas will showcase this perfectly whilst an untidy space may see visitors being more reluctant to stay for long or even stay at all!
