So the other week I offered up our garage on justpark.com

We live VERY close to Leeds Airport and I figured there would be demand. 1 Week later and I have my first customer for a month.

I have priced the parking at £59 a month and I will receive £47 a month from Just Park when they take their fees.

Anyone done anything like this before or am I the only one dipping their toe into the water so to speak?

I think it's a great idea if you've got offroad/dedicated parking, live close to something useful and don't use the space.

There's a fair deal of trust from the users, but less than with something like couch surfing or airbnb which both seem to working well, so I can see something like this really working. From a sellers point of view the risks are quite low - non payment (but you're not losing money then) and abandonment of vehicle - make sure the T&C's are clear when you can have an abandoned car towed ;)

Do you take them to the airport?

We were going to do that last year. Flying from Birmingham and it was going to cost £42 for 9 days parking. Several people were cheaper than this, and some even offered to drop off at the airport. In the end we found a deal so went with that instead.

But I'd use it, for sure.

Nope they are literally just going to be parking in our empty garage

That's it

I have a friend who's parents rent out their driveway, I think to people who work in London. They live right next to a train station with a high speed link to London. They even rented out spare rooms during the Olympics for some crazy amount.

Unfortunately we don't have a driveway or garage as it would be a good little earner.

I'd definitely recommend this. Especially in London!! I would rent out my drive if I could, sadly I don't have one, which is the bane of my life for my own car. I rented one for £15 for the day near to Wembley - official Wembley car park costs £30, some of them have space for 4 cars! Imagine several Saturday evenings with 4 cars... nice earner. I think if you aren't near train stations, airports or other landmarks you wouldn't get a lot of custom. If you are - find somewhere else for your car for that day and rent it out!
