You know those times when you’re driving around in circles looking for a parking in Cape Town, and it feels like you’d have a better chance finding a unicorn?
Yes, our beautiful city sure has some serious parking issues. And with each new building that goes up the situation just goes from bad to worse.
Fortunately, there’s a light at the end of the parking garage. Last week, Cape Town was introduced to a whole new range of smarter, higher density parking solutions with the local launch of an internationally experienced company called Auto Dock.
Auto Dock specialises in automated parking systems that can fit double the number of cars in the same space as a traditional parking system, and depending on a system used, can even park up to 16 cars in the space of 2.
Their systems aren’t only magically space efficient, they’re also a lot quicker, safer and less hassle for drivers. You simply drive into a parking garage entrance, turn off your car, lock it and leave. A fully automated system does the rest. The car gets lifted up on a secured pallet and swiftly shifted to its optimum position with a series of mechanical lifts and sliders – all with perfect safety and reliability.
