When clients pull up to your business, their first impression comes from the parking lot. Unfortunately, many property managers and business owners do not give enough attention to this particular area. Slacking on exterior maintenance, especially your parking lot, can have negative effects on your business.
Lack of Maintenance Hurts Your Business
Your parking lot can represent your business. If a client arrives and your parking lot is full of cracks and potholes, it implies that you care little about your company and even less about the client him or herself. When you don’t maintain the parking lot, clients, tenants, and other guests are less likely to visit the building. Additionally, guests are more likely to damage their cars in the parking lot that receives very little maintenance.
Ineffective Traffic Flow Frustrates Clients
If your parking lot is ineffective, clients are less likely to visit your company. A parking lot with faded striping, inaccessible locations, or poorly sized parking spaces can become frustrating to your guests. In addition to frustration, your parking lot may not be safe. For instance, with inadequate striping and no markings for directional flow, car accidents are likely to occur. When disabled clients visit your business and the parking lot is inaccessible, not only can you face penalties, but those clients are less likely to visit again.
When it comes to running your business, you may think that the parking lot is inconsequential. After all, you want to be judged on your company, not on the parking lot.
