Clancy Systems International, Inc. announces that System Parking, Inc. of Chicago, Ill., has joined several other cities in rolling out Clancy's Park-by-Phone service in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Anyone who enrolls in Park-by-Phone online can avoid the hassle of stuffing coins, bills, tokens or credit cards into parking meters, boxes and machines. Here's how it works:
1. Sign up at www.Park-By-Phone.com for an annual membership costing $5.95.
2. Print a temporary ID card from your computer and place on your car dash. A permanent hanger for your rear-view mirror will be mailed to you.
3. Pay for parking each time by calling 888-310-PARK and entering the lot or meter number, which are visibly marked on bright yellow signs.
An added convenience of Park-by-Phone is members can remotely add more time to a parking meter that is about to expire by calling the toll-free number or accessing the web site. When paying by cell phone, members are instantly recognized by caller ID, eliminating the need to enter a membership number -- customers need only enter a PIN and lot number.
A convenience fee of 10 percent is added to the parking charge. In return, each annual subscriber receives a monthly bill via e-mail or regular mail, offering the advantages of paying once for a month of parking and receiving a detailed expense record.
"System Parking is dedicated to providing the best service and parking experience for our customers," said Thomas A. Phillips, System Parking, Senior Vice President. "Park-by-Phone removes the necessity of cash each time a customer parks and gives our customers a monthly accounting and receipt for their parking."
The program is now available in nine states in the U.S. and in Puerto Rico.
