We wanted to give an update on the Truck Parking Club app since our last blog back in August 2023.

We got to meet Evan Shelley and his team in person at the Mid America Truck Show (MATS) back in March.  The main part of our discussion was around how things were progressing with acquiring “new” parking spots.  Evan stated that they are adding more and more “new” never available spots every week.

We were able to pull some stats as of the end of May 2024 Truck Parking Club has over 13,000 spots with over 3,000 spots in the “new” never available to the public spots.

In recent surveys truckers say the second top issue they are concerned about this find parking.  The first issue is the economy.  Research has show that on average a driver will spend 58 minutes a day looking for a spot.

The TSG tries to have a conference call with Evan on a regular basis to get updates and provide feedback to him.  These calls are open to everyone and we announce them on the TSG Facebook page.  Trucking Solutions Group Facebook Page

Our last blog in Aug 2023.

What driver out in the trucking industry has every had a difficult time finding a parking spot at the end of their day.  As part of the Trucking Solutions Group (TSG) Trucking Solutions Group Home Page we have regular conference calls with Evan from the Truck Parking Club Truck Parking Club Home Page

Evan explained how the club worked.  He and his group solicit property owners that have extra truck parking to become a host and allow trucks to park on their property.  The property owner sets the price and can modify the price they are asking for the parking spot themselves.  Then as a truck driver you can search for parking spots where you need one and see what it will cost and what amenities it has to offer.

The Truck Parking Club have multiple easy ways to reserve a parking spot.  You can do so by the app or their website.  They also have a 24-hour 365-day customer service 800 number (888) 899-7275.  The customer service representatives that are retired or former drivers.  So, they understand problems you as a driver have finding parking after a long day driving.

For the driver the only cost you have is what you pay for the parking spot.  For the property owner they give a small percentage of the fee they charge for the parking spot.

For the most part if the drive has any question in regards to the location they want to park at it is best to contact that location directly.  The site will list amenities and any special instructions they require.

Here is an example from the website of a location:

If you are reading this and are a property owner that has truck parking and you have extra space, take a look to see if you could make some extra money by “renting” the spots.  You list the spaces by day or month.

So, check them out whether you are a driver or property owner to see if they are a good fit for your business needs.  They are adding locations on a regular basis.
