Temporary parking solutions and pop-up car parks have gained popularity in recent years due to their numerous advantages over traditional permanent car parks. Temporary parking solutions offer a cost-effective and practical option for businesses, organisations, and events that need additional parking space for a short duration. Bransby Wilson has emerged as a leading temporary parking solutions provider for a diverse range of sectors and events.
One of the primary advantages of temporary parking solutions and pop-up car parks is their flexibility. They can be quickly installed and removed, making them ideal for short-term events, festivals, and seasonal demand. Additionally, they offer a practical solution for businesses and organisations that require supplementary or additional parking space, such as construction sites or retail outlets during peak periods.
Another benefit is their cost-effectiveness. Renting or leasing temporary and pop-up car parks for a short term is possible (see our car park leasing options), whereas traditional permanent car parks demand a substantial upfront investment. This allows businesses and event organisers to save money on construction costs and only pay for the parking space they require for the duration of the event or project.
While designers create traditional permanent car parks for long-term use, they design temporary and pop-up ones specifically for short-term use. Typically, a temporary car park can last for 1-2 years and is easily dismantled and relocated if necessary. Their lifespan can also be extended for any time as required. Conversely, pop-up car parks are even more transient, with a typical lifespan of just a few weeks or days.
Temporary and pop-up car parks offer flexibility in form and size based on the requirements of the project or event. Common types include surface parking, multi-level parking, and modular parking. When designing a temporary or pop-up car park, designers must carefully consider several factors, such as site size, traffic flow, and the types of vehicles that will use the space. Critical design considerations also include lighting, security, and accessibility. In addition, adequate drainage must a build factor to manage water effectively.
The installation and removal process for temporary and pop-up car parks is a crucial advantage. Bransby Wilson’s team can install a temporary car park within a matter of days, depending on the size and complexity of the project. The removal team can dismantle the car park within a similar timeframe once the project ends, leaving the site available for other use.
Compared to traditional permanent car parks, temporary and pop-up car parks are often significantly more cost-effective. While constructing a permanent car park can run into millions of pounds, renting or leasing a car park for a short period costs only a fraction of that amount. The precise cost of a temporary or pop-up car park depends on the project size, the duration of use, and any additional features required, such as lighting or security.
One significant advantage of temporary car parks is revenue generated (even if short-term) from land that could have been left standing, losing the client money. For example, land purchased for development into residential/commercial property. We can turn the land into an income-generating space while waiting on planning permission, builders, materials, etc. We did this for one of our clients on two York sites, both turned into residential flats. It took eight months to get planning, and we generated £50k+ of revenue.
Temporary and pop-up car parks provide many advantages over permanent car parks, including cost-effectiveness, flexibility, and convenience. Furthermore, with the continued improvement of our car park technology and design, temporary and pop-up car parks are anticipated to become an increasingly preferred choice for businesses and event organisers.
