Parking Lot Line Striping – 5 Reasons It Is Critical

By Todd Woods

Being a business owner in a large city like Phoenix means that you can sometimes overlook the importance of having your parking lot properly maintained. It’s no secret that parking space in Phoenix is at a premium. This means that getting your parking lot line striping right is imperative to you bringing in customers and keeping them.

1. The economy is making successful businesses have to work that bit harder to keep their customers and to attract new ones. Retailers can have difficulty standing out from the crowd when trying to attract new customers and patronage from loyal customers. Ignoring the efficiency of your parking spaces and systems can mean the difference of turning away a new customer or maintaining a loyal one. Clean, clear lines are both aesthetically pleasing as well as being a hazard prevention.

2.An effectively planned and marked parking lot will help to minimize accidents. You can also capitalize on the number of parking spaces your lot can accommodate, because good design means that your lot is being utilized to its fullest.

3. Parking lot striping in Phoenix has governmental requirements whereby it is compulsory to designate ADA regulated handicap spaces in some lots. You may need to install a fire lane for emergencies or decide to allocate specialty parking for the elderly, pregnant mothers or other VIP’s. Customizing the parking lot striping means you can avoid the confusion of finding a car space and keep the designated spaces clear for those they were intended for.

4. Pedestrian Safety is an overlooked benefit of clearly defined parking lot striping. Often the parking lot owner focuses on the ability to accommodate as many cars as possible to ensure optimum customer access. Once parked the customer will need a well marked and easily understood system that will deliver them to the business doors and back to their vehicle again. Crosswalks, loading zone markings, stop bars and correctly marked pick up areas educate your patrons on where they are required to walk, give right of way to traffic and areas that they should avoid.

5.Keeping your parking lot maintained regardless of the economic climate is good business practise. Consider your parking lot as an extension to the exterior of your business. Can you afford to neglect the first and last ting that your customer sees when they enter and exit your premises?
