Preferred Parking Service will not accept telephone registrations nor advanced reserved registrations. Upon registering, your parking is effective immediately. There will be additional fees charged when registering for parking (see fee schedule). Monthly payments are automated by providing either a credit/debit card or bank draft ACH (requires a check routing and account number). All payments are collected the first business day of each month. While Preferred Parking Service wishes to accommodate our customers, we cannot accept personal checking automated bill-pay payments.
Billing: You can change your credit/debit card information by signing into your account on our website at www.preferredparking.com or by contacting our office. Draft (ACH) changes cannot be made on the website. Please contact our office for these changes. All account information must be updated by the 27th of the current month in order to be effective for the upcoming month. Please note that you are not able to make a payment online at this time.
Preferred Parking Service accepts payments from the pre-tax benefit providers of Wage Works and Commuter Check. Parkers must adhere to their benefit provider’s adjustment deadline timeframes.
Return Fee: There is a return payment fee (see fee schedule) on all returned payments (this includes checks, draft (ACH), and credit/debit card payments).
Changes: It is your responsibility to keep your account in current standing. You may change your vehicle information, address, email address and phone numbers via our website, or by calling our office. Parkers who fail to notify Preferred Parking Service of any changes may be subject to citations. In the event of multiple citations your vehicle may be subject to wheel locking or towing. Any fees associated with failure to keep your account or vehicle information current are the sole responsibility of the customer. Preferred Parking Service will not reimburse for any wheel lock or towing expenses. Lot changes can be made as spaces become available. You must bring your permit into the office with you in order to change your lot location.
Permits & Replacements: Your parking permit must be displayed each time you park in the lot. Permits must be displayed on the rearview mirror, numbers side facing toward the windshield of the vehicle. If you cannot place the permit on the rearview mirror, please place the permit on the dash of the vehicle. Be sure that all numbers on the permit are visible before leaving your vehicle. If the permanent parking permit is lost, there is a replacement fee (see fee schedule). Broken permits may be returned to the office and replaced free of charge. Preferred Parking Service will not accept any responsibility associated with towing or wheel locking any monthly customers’ vehicle that is not displaying a valid permit. If a reported lost/stolen/expired permit is found displayed in your vehicle on any Preferred Parking Service lot, you will be subject to fined/wheel-locked/towed at your expense.
Access Cards: Many locations require access cards/devices to access the location. Costs for these cards/devices vary by site. Monthly parkers are required to pay a non-refundable fee for these access cards/devices upon signup. If your access card is lost or stolen, there is a replacement fee (see fee schedule). If you forget your access card you will need to come to the corporate office for a validation. You will only be allowed two validations per month. If you pay to exit knowing your access card is forgotten or not working without coming to the office for a validation, we will not issue a refund. If you attempt to use your access card and it doesn’t work on exit, a refund will be issued only after research of the access card report showing an entry scan and then a scan not working on exit is proven. If a validation issued to you was used on the same day your access card is also used to exit, there will be an additional charge of $25.00 applied to your account.
Motorcycle Parking in Access Card Required Locations: The parking system and equipment are designed for use by automobiles only and are not configured to serve motorcycles, scooters or pedestrians. Do not attempt to use parking equipment with any other mode of transportation than an automobile.
Overflow: If you are unable to locate a parking space in your assigned location, please contact the Preferred Parking Service office immediately so that a Representative can direct you to a parking location closest to your designated parking lot. The Representative will notate your account and notify the enforcement field personnel that your designated location is unavailable for you to park.
Parking Spaces: Your parking privilege is valid for one space. Vehicles taking up two spaces will be required to pay for the extra space. Nonpayment for taking up two spaces will result in fines.
