Do you have a parking lot budget? The chances are, you're focused on budgeting for your company's other needs--but the truth is that preparing for parking lot problems, updates, or changes is a savvy choice. That way, you don't end up struggling with unexpected costs. Here's how to create a parking lot budget.
Protecting the Parking Lot
Commercial parking lots don't necessarily need a lot of work, but it is important to plan for maintenance, repairs, and general care so that your customers have a safe and stress-free parking experience. A problem in the middle of the year can seriously hurt your wallet--so it's best to set aside a parking lot budget at the beginning of the year so you're ready for any upkeep your parking lot might need. After all, a little bit of regular care can stop big problems in their tracks!
Here are a few things to consider when creating your parking lot budget:
How old is your parking lot?
If your parking lot is getting older or hasn't been repaved in a while, you'll need to add more money to your budget. Older lots need more maintenance in order to be kept safe and efficient--or they need repaving to save you money in the long run.
Do you have any parking lot goals?
Is there anything bothering you about your parking lot? The beginning of the year is a great time to create goals and plan for changes. That way, you can get the perfect parking lot on your terms, rather than waiting until it's inconvenient or expensive.
Do you have a pavement partner?
