Luxurious Hydraulic Underground Garage Parking

Underground parking just got a new meaning! UK based firm, Cardock, has come up with this great idea for a world where people are constantly searching for more space. This underground garage accomplishes two important things: you can safely park your car with the push of a button saving space at the same time. Cars can even be parked on top of each other thus offering an efficient system for urban areas too.Cardok is powered by an electronic hydraulic system that lifts and lowers a platform to show or hide your car. The system can support a weight of 3 tons per deck so a family with more than one car can use this garage without facing the problems that come with adding a new space for the second car. There already is a Cardock Mono installed in a luxury apartment cluster in Bowdon, Cheshire and another version has found a home in London, next to a luxury home. This last one features a double underground garage that can shelter two cars.

    What would you do if (when) a hydraulic line bursts? Consider the car that’s now entombed underground a loss and buy a new one I guess.

    Hate to see what happens if you park halfway on it and then raise the deck …

    Its a clever idea that certainly will save space, but is the expense worth it?

    It’s seems a bit slow, but a brilliant idea :-) I hope there are som censors to stop the thing, if you park a bit outside the box.

    Not necessarily. It probably has laser sensors to detect possible extrusions; considering that it would cost no more than $50.

    Great idea. It will save space needed for parking. Its a best option for corporate parking where large number of employees are working.

    That would suck if you forgot your wallet or something in the car and now it’s underground and you have to wait for 5 minutes to grab something that should have taken about 2 seconds.

    Judging by all the nice cars in the pictures, my guess is this isn’t cheap.

    Nothing speial. Ordinary, middle-class apartments in Tokyo have had this facility for at least 12 years to my personal knowledge

    wow, I could use a parking garage like that… I wonder what their insurance rate is though, ‘cuz they own all those exotic cars; do they have exotic car insurance?

    Technology grows everyday and I can’t wait to see what tomorrow holds. This article simply amazed me. On another note, I wonder how much their car insurance premium is, considering they’re driving a very expensive car! I’d imagine if you’re driving that kind of car, you’d need specialty car insurance

    Is there access to the car underground? What if someone is trapped inside?

    I personally would make a catacomb from the house to the undergroung garage just to be on the safe side.

    Why does that seem so James Bond to me? Love it! Thanks for sharing, Adriana!

    What happens when it rains or snows? Presumably the water would make its way underground. Is there a pump to prevent it from flooding your car? And a back-up pump in case the primary pump fails?

    And backup electricity to get your car out if there’s a power outage?

    Sensors to tell you that your car is too far forward or backward?

    Overall, an intriguingly clever idea, but there’s a reason why these aren’t ubiquitous.

    If you’ve got the $$, why not have your very own X-Men, Batman, Iron Man-style parking garage? Don’t hate just because you take the bus…
