Parking at Shopping Centres

Home|Segments|Parking at Shopping Centres

The shopping experience starts with parking

Numerous requirements must be met in the management of parking facilities at shopping centres. The pricing structure must take the various target groups into consideration. The walking paths and driving routes through the car park must be short, with easy-to-understand signage. Periods of extremely heavy traffic must be managed through organisational measures and additional personnel.

This works best through close cooperation between the shopping centre and the car park operator.

Our service extras

Contipark has been successfully operating parking facilities at shopping centres for more than 50 years. Our first property – the car park at the Europa-Center in Berlin, which we are still operating – also falls into this category. Its management provided the first blueprints for the operation of numerous other shopping car parks in Germany and Austria.

As a result we have been able to develop extensive expertise in their management over the past decades. We are familiar with the needs of the contracting parties, as well as those of the customers. Accordingly, we develop an individual management concept for every property in close cooperation with all parties involved.

A separate team of specialists develops a pricing structure that is in line with market conditions and appropriate to the respective target groups. In addition, a wide range of special conditions are available to us. The P Card is an extremely successful and popular instrument for retaining customer loyalty. It also helps customers save money and enjoy more convenience in the parking facilities we operate.
