Firstly, there are single or normal spaces which can be open, undercover, secured, basement or garaged.
Secondly there are tandem spaces which means if your apartment has two spaces one space maybe behind the other which means you need to move the second car to get the first car out.
Then there are stacker car parks which come in many versions, but essentially this is a car stacking system that you drive your car into, you then get out and it moves your car up, down, or sideways or all three to enable others cars to get in or out. Then when you want your car back it moves it back to same spot you drove it in, you get in and drive off. They are pretty quick and work quite well.
One important thing to note is car park stacker spaces often have height and weight limits which vary depending on which space in the stacker is yours. eg – top, middle or bottom. If you have a larger than normal car, make sure it fits in your space.
And lastly there are car lifts which are not a car park of itself, but they are sometimes used in apartment buildings to get your car into or out of the car park. You simply drive your car into the lift, and it goes up or down to get you in or out.
You may have a firm preference for one or the other or you may not really mind, but please go and have a look at the car space and understand exactly what you are buying. The type of car space czn influence the sale price so when you compare one apartment to the next make a note of the car park type.
