Those who are lucky enough to have a parking space near their urban pad, whether it's a driveway, garage or carpark, may be luckier than they think.
An online service allows those with a coveted car space to rent it out while it is not in use.
With many urbanpad.co.uk readers living in and around city centres this website could make you some extra cash.
Park At My House acts as a bridging service between those who have car spaces and those who want them.
For example, if you live in the city and have a secure car space at your apartment building, but drive to work each day, the space sits empty.
You could rent the space out to someone who works nearby your apartment block during working hours.
This allows you to reap the financial benefits, while they gain a car space and drive to work each day in a happy mood.
The website displays parking options near London tube stations starting at £11 per day, Edinburgh has spaces for £7 per day and in Manchester you can grab a park for £5 per day.
In comparison to parking meter fees this is a great improvement.
And the car-space owner can make a very easy £25 per week or more.
If you are someone who walks to work or catches public transport don’t fear because your urban pad car-space can still make you the occasional cash.
People also use the site to find parking for sports events, theatre shows, concerts and fairs.
If you are near a prime location for crowd events you can easily make money by advertising the space in the lead-up to the event. The site has been running since 2006 and is used all over the world.
Those paying to live in a prime location can use this website to take advantage of living in a metropolitan, high-traffic area.
