Dealing with parking in the Windy City can pose an enormous hassle. From hunting down an open spot to shoveling the car out during the winter, drivers face plenty of challenges.
Thankfully, private parking at apartments can help alleviate the stress associated with big city driving.
The Benefits of a Private Parking
Many city dwellers choose to give up their cars altogether due to the stress of parking. If you find an apartment that offers private parking, you don’t have to forfeit the convenience of having a car.
Private parking ensures ease and safety, especially when compared to street or public parking.
If you’ve reserved a spot at your apartment’s parking lot or garage, you can rest assured that you’ll always have an automatic space to park. You won’t have to worry about wasting time or gas searching for a spot.
You also don’t have to fret remembering where you parked or walking long distances to your car.
Private parking lots provide an extra level of security because they often have surveillance, either in the form of a security guard or camera. These safety measures can deter auto theft and vandalism, and provide you peace of mind when walking to and from your vehicle.
Private parking facilities also reduce the amount of traffic and pedestrians that drivers have to worry about when parking, and thus minimizing the chance of an unwanted accident or collision.
Where to Find this Information
If you’re set on finding private parking at an apartment, be sure to check your prospective apartment’s listing, or run a filtered web search.
If this information is not detailed online, connect with property management or directly with your broker.
Once you find an apartment with private parking, be sure to ask more questions. Figure out how much the parking cost and what type of parking is offered.
Consider asking these questions:
- Is it a garage, covered lot, or an exposed lot?
- Do I pay for my parking spot separately, or is it a part of my rent?
- Are spaces assigned?
- What are the safety measures in place?
- Are there guest spots for visitors?
