Our hosts’ 5 most-loved Parkable features

Apart from the obvious benefit of earning extra income from underused parking space, our Parkable hosts have a few favourite features to share…

You know who’s parking

The Parkable dashboard allows hosts to view and manage all things parking. It shows you who is currently parking, including their name and licence plate number, when they arrived, and whether someone has reserved a spot at your park and is on their way. You’ll be in the know 24/7.

You decide when to share your space

With Parkable, car park availability is completely flexible. You can make your park available only on certain days, and only between particular hours. If this week looks different to the last, that’s no problem either - you can update your availability to reflect your timetable.

In fact, you can do pretty much anything - like making your park available for one hour in the morning, one hour in the afternoon, and then another hour at night.

No matter your schedule, Parkable can work around it.

You choose the price

Just like availability, the price you set for your park is completely up to you, and you’re free to change the price when you see fit. For casual parking you can set both an hourly and daily price, and if you set up your park with long-term subscriptions, you can set weekly or monthly prices.

To make sure your park is in high demand, we recommend pricing that’s competitive with parking options close by (the $100/hour bays don’t tend to be the most popular...).

If you need advice on appropriate pricing, get in touch! We’re always happy to help.

You can pause your listing

You’re free to pause your listing whenever you want to! For example, schools only activate their listings during the holidays when they aren’t needed by staff, and put them on hold the rest of the time.

You can be in touch with parkers

The Parkable dashboard includes easy messaging between hosts and parkers, so you’re always on the ball. We’re pretty sure it’s going to be the next big thing in instant messaging, especially with it’s parking-focused edge (farewell WhatsApp).
