We find people who have unused parking spaces and match them with drivers looking for parking where it's not easily available or where public parking is too expensive.
If you're a driver, search through our map to find a parking spot that suits you. Pay online and park your car. When you're ready to leave, checkout of the parking spot through our website or mobile app and you're done!
If you own an unused parking spot, list your address with us! You set the price you want to charge drivers and we'll send you your earnings via ACH or a mailed check when someone rents your space.
Instant parking is a parking where driver can book the spot directly on our website and there are no restrictions to book your parking space.
Driver can book, pay, and park on the parking spot without interaction with the spot owner.
If you have opt for instant parking, drivers will be able to automatically book your parking spot.
The benefits of instant parking are:
Convenient for both spot owners and drivers. Easy parking for drivers without having the hassle for responding to any email/phone request.
Attract more drivers, less hassle.
If you are looking for instant parking, please look for the yellow star with "Instant" text on the spot detail page.
Non-instant parking is a parking where driver needs to contact spot owner via phone and/or email and cordinate with each other on where to park the vehicle.
Once the spot is booked, you and spot owner both will receive an email about the booking and can see the upcomming booking/renting information on your dashboard as well.
If you see a yellow star with "Instant" text inside it on spot detail page, you are seeing an instant parking spot.
If not, it is an non-instant spot.
Our goal is to help you save time and money by finding an easy place to park at a price cheaper than public parking. We have a secure and trusted checkout system that lets you pay online with any major credit card and we handle paying the parking spot owner for a fast and seamless parking experience.
All parking rates are posted by the parking spot owner. We help guide owners in posting rates that are appropriate for the area and generally cheaper than what you can find with public parking. We charge 6% to 12% service fee and a 2.9% + .30¢ credit card transaction fee.
If you choose an hourly parking rate, you will only be charged for the amount of time actually parked. For example, if you only park for 30 minutes, you will be charged based on half the hourly rate. If you choose a daily, weekly, or monthly rate, you will be charged for the full rental period.
You may pay for any available parking spots through our website or mobile application. We accept all major credit cards.
In order to preserve the privacy of both drivers and parking spot owners, we do not display any personal information to either party. If any problems arise during the parking process, please notify support and we will contact both parties in order to resolve any issues.

No! As long as you provide detailed instructions on how to access your parking spot, you do not need to be at home when a driver rents your space. However, if you require a safety deposit or a garage door opener is required to access your space, you will need to meet with the driver in order to exchange those items.
