This article draws parallels with familiar platforms like Airbnb and Turo, highlighting the ease of sharing assets through mobile applications. clicknpark focuses on sharing parking spaces, simplifying the parking experience for seekers while creating revenue opportunities for owners.
Owners have various reasons to rent out their parking spaces, such as planning for a trip, having a spare space, or including parking in their lease when they don't own a car. According to the company's website, owners can earn up to $2,000 per year by renting their space. Registering with clicknpark is incredibly simple. After downloading the app from the Play Store or App Store, visit the "Register My Parking" page, click "Start Now," and provide the requested information. That's it! There's a 24-hour approval period for the team at clicknpark to validate the information. Once approved, the parking space becomes available.
Everything is managed through the dashboard, where you can view the list of current and upcoming reservations, as well as real-time information about vehicles in your spaces. Transactions are processed through clicknpark's payment partner, Stripe, with earnings deposited directly into your bank account 24 hours after the reservation begins. Please note that clicknpark retains a 30% platform fee for each transaction as their chosen business model for sustainability.
If you're in need of parking rather than offering it, clicknpark is equally suitable. The process is just as straightforward. Indicate your destination among the three supported cities: Montreal, Quebec, and Toronto, and choose an available parking spot. You can reserve by the hour or month, paying only for what you use. Afterward, simply park your vehicle, and you're good to go.
Creating an account is necessary but can be done in a few clicks directly from the mobile app or by visiting the clicknpark website. The app and its dashboard are user-friendly. For instance, if a parking spot is displayed with a blue icon, it's available for the duration you're looking for, while a gray icon indicates unavailability.
Access your ongoing reservations and related information through the "Reservations" tab, and you can also modify the duration there. Payment options include credit card, Apple Pay, or Google Pay, ensuring secure transactions. The prices listed already include taxes and fees, but please note that an additional $0.40 fee is applied to all credit card transactions.
The clicknpark app is available for both Android and iPhone smartphones. Simply download it from the Play Store or App Store and create a free account.
