Launch checklist

Ready to modernize your parking? To launch Parkade, share some information with us and then — farther down the page — read over what you need to do.
If your building wants to rent building-owned parking to residents, we'll import all these spots into our system so they'll be available for rent. To do this, we need a list of all spots you want to rent to residents. Open this example spreadsheet, and go to File -> Make a Copy, and then fill in the spot numbers, prices and other info about each spot.
We like to confirm that every resident can (theoretically) access every parking spot, and confirm how residents (and their guests) will get into the garage. In most buildings, residents already have garage access via keypads/fobs. Some buildings make residents be responsible for letting their guests into the garage, while others tell guests to stop by a security desk to get let in.
We want your residents to have a great experience with Parkade, and that means ensuring they are comfortable with the app and have all their questions answered up front. We like to do Zoom-based information sessions on launch day, or 1-3 days before launch. What’s a good date and time for us to schedule this for your residents?
Just as we want your residents to be familiar and comfortable with the app, the same is true for you and your fellow property managers (and perhaps and interested HOA board members). Schedule a quick 30 minute app walk through with the team, and we’ll show you how to get the most out of our admin features.  What’s a good time for this?
Thanks! We'll get back to you soon about next steps. The main need remaining will just be getting your help communicating to residents. Read on about that below!

Email residents

Use Parkade as the way tenants get parking, for a fee, and they can rent hourly, Email all residents to let them know about the partnership, launch date, guest parking, and to expect an email from Parkade with the link to join.

Parkade will share sample messaging with you along with an FAQ PDF, so no need to worry about drafting content.daily or monthly. Up to them!

Post fliers

Hang signs in elevators, lobby and all other shared spaces. Parkade will provide signage that includes your building’s unique QR to allow residents to easily join the building’s Parkade.

Cross post

Post in other building channels including Facebook groups, Nextdoor groups, etc.

Share emails

Share resident emails with Parkade. We will email residents with their unique registration link to join your building’s Parkade group. We’ll also share links to helpful onboarding information.

Update old signage

Update physical signage at the spot to make it clear that these spots are not first-come, first-serve for whoever is driving by them. It should be clear that they are reserved parking (“Reserved parking: Tow away!” is our language recommendation), and it can help to have signage encouraging people to book the spots with Parkade.
