Situated in North West England, the buzzing city of Manchester is bordered by the Cheshire Plain and the Pennines. Modern day Manchester is an eclectic mix of beautiful Victorian buildings – such as the gothic Town Hall in Albert Square – and contemporary architecture and culture.
Boasting one of the largest urban economies in the UK, Manchester attracts the third highest number of foreign visitors each year after London and Edinburgh, thanks to its extensive shopping, dining and nightlife.
Known as the shopping mecca of the North, Manchester offers an extraordinary mix of boutiques, high-street shops and market stalls, alongside two of the largest indoor malls in the country – the Arndale Centre and the Trafford Centre.
With such a wealth of shopping and socialising options on offer in the city centre, numerous car parking options are essential in town. Manchester offers multi-storey car parks, meter car parks and on-street parking to choose from. But make sure you don’t park illegally.
With so many people flooding to Manchester’s attractions on a daily basis, and with current parking restrictions only allowing motorists to park in certain areas – including the popular Northern Quarter – for a maximum of one hour – wheel clamping in Manchester has become a common occurrence for people illegal parking who cause major problems for retailers, business owners and customers alike. Wheel clamping in Manchester can help to prevent illegal parkers from taking up spaces intended for shoppers or diners.
Our specialist clamping units offer an ideal parking enforcement solution for business, restaurant, bar and shop owners keen to protect customer spaces from illegal parkers. Each of our units is fitted with a Home Office approved CCTV system that records audio and all of our wheel clamping operatives hold a valid Vehicle Immobiliser SIA licence. Our clamping units – which always take a digital photograph of all clamped vehicles to help prevent disputes – can either make regular patrols of your site or operate on a call-out only basis. Our FlashPark service can an effective alternative to wheel clamping in Manchester.
Manchester City Council is currently proposing to make changes to parking in the city centre to encourage evening visitors. The Council has outlined proposals which would allow drivers to park in all bays across the city centre for at least two hours rather than one hour.
