Markets in Everything: Rent Out Your Driveway II
Last July, I had a CD post about ParkAtMyHouse.com, a U.K. company which "enables property-owners to rent out their empty driveways and garages to drivers needing somewhere to park."
After its success in London and the U.K., the company recently launched its service in the U.S.:
Press Release: ParkatmyHouse.com, a successful British-based website designed to connect drivers with open parking spaces, announced today that it will launch the service in the United States. The site is run by Anthony Eskinazi, a 24-year old entrepreneur from London, England (pictured above), whose modern innovation has changed the way people find parking.
By connecting people who want to rent out or sell their under utilized parking spaces with those who are looking for convenient and cheap parking, ParkatmyHouse.com offers a modern, high tech response to what is typically thought of as a low tech challenge.
From an email I received from Anthony: "With the credit crunch hitting hard at this moment in time, we feel that for those who live in areas where the demand for parking is high, our service will offer homeowners a great opportunity to make an additional income from their property."
