The Reductions in Available Space
Traditional parking techniques focus on being able to handle immense volumes of vehicles. For the most part they achieve this goal but unfortunately it is done at the expense of requiring a great deal of land to build the parking garage or parking lot.
With increased populations in cities all over the world, the amount of space available for parking is less than ever before and securing a large plot of available land for parking is difficult and expensive. This brings about a need for changes in the fundamental ways we view parking and more efficient parking solutions.
When we think about parking we tend to think of a two-dimensional parking space that is big enough to fit one vehicle and these spaces being grouped together horizontally in some manner (i.e. a parking lot). This "one vehicle in one space” model is neither cost-effective nor efficient and can be greatly improved on. The biggest flaw with this model is that it makes no use of vertical space at all. When land is purchased it comes with virtually unlimited vertical space which needs to be utilized more fully in order to achieve the best possible parking solution. This means a parking solution that is both economical and able to handle a large volume of vehicles in a minimum amount of space.
Parking garages are designed to make limited use of vertical space but not as efficiently as an auto stacker. The amount of materials and excavation required to build a parking garage is expensive, extensive and results in a lengthy timeframe for implementation.
The Evolution of the Auto Stacker
The evolution of parking and the recognized opportunity of vertical space have led to the prominence of the auto stacker in the parking industry. Using a hydraulic lift to stack vehicles vertically allows many vehicles to be parked in what is essentially one parking space. This effectively shows how the traditional view of parking both inefficient and outdated.
The introduction and evolution of the stack parker has brought a new level of efficiency and innovative design to parking. Decades of technological advances and improvements in design have resulted in a lineup of different models of auto stackers that are suitable for any parking situation.
These auto stacker parking solutions can be implemented either indoors or outdoors, adding an extra level of convenience and utilization to these parking systems. In many instances they can also be customized to further facilitate their implementation.
The Increased Need for Auto Stackers
The need for stack parking systems is expected to greatly increase as populations continually grow and lead to more vehicles being driven. The need for more efficient parking will become more pronounced as the amount of available space diminishes and gets more expensive.
Auto stackers are quite simply the most efficient, cost-effective and most easily implemented parking solution available today. Not only are auto stackers incredibly efficient, they are also a very attractive way to park vehicles which will lead to their use as a way of showcasing vehicles as well as storing them.
