Owning and operating a business is one of the most demanding jobs there is. Those who choose to undertake this profession know just how many tasks you have to organise in a day, from making sure your products are fully stocked to monitoring the progress of all your employees. There barely seems enough time in the day to consider other problems. However, it is imperative to your retail business that you do get customers, and the only way to ensure that is to give them space to park their cars. What many business owners don't realise is that you should have much more than just car park lines painted on your allotted spaces.
You will only build a reputation as a business that cares for its customers if you provide a welcoming and, most importantly, safe entrance to your retail space. Part of that is thinking of the little problems that might not appear to most people at first glance. Many elderly and disabled customers will struggle to cross a road safely without the aid of a pedestrian crossing, and families with small children will appreciate the extra help, too. Make sure to ask the company painting your car park lines to also include safe and well-advertised pedestrian crossings to the sidewalk.
Disabled Car Parking
Australia has quite a large population of people who drive (or are driven) with a disability and that qualify for disabled car parking. The last thing you want to do is make these customers feel unwelcome before they even make it to your store. Having disabled car park lines and markings is not only the right thing to do but will also broaden your consumer base to a whole new market that might otherwise simply drive on by. Most line-painting companies will happily also add these markings, and it takes barely any extra time, so there is no reason not to do it.
Loading Vehicle Signage
Many retail companies across Australia get shipments on a daily or, at most, weekly basis. You will not always get the same drivers, and ensuring that whoever it is understands where they need to go is a crucial part of pragmatic car park planning. You definitely do not want a fully loaded truck blocking traffic and stopping customers from getting in or out while they figure out where to go. A few simple lines or markings is all it takes to adequately point out to all who need it where to go. Like all the aforementioned points, most car park line application companies will happily customise a few loading markings for you for a small fee.
