Bill Hanks who is a Yahoo! contributor has published an article on about getting the best parking spots in parking garages.

A portion of the article says,

“We have all looked for that good parking place for one reason or another. Many individuals, with and without handicaps, always get the prime parking spots. However, how does one get the next best place? Some individuals have prime parking spots written into their contracts. Some businesses will pay extra to keep certain spots reserved for their business. If a business owns the garage, they are always going to get the best accessible spots. Some garages work on a first come first served basis. Others may charge extra for a better spot.

If you are a one time visitor, just ask the garage attendant for the best possible space. Explain your situation. In some cases, they might allow you to park closer to your destination. If you are a regular customer, try to establish a communication relationship with the attendant.

A simple smile and hello will get you started. Keep your conversation brief. Treat the individual with respect. After they get to know you, after a few visits, ask them how you would go about getting a better place to park. Always have a legitimate reason, why you need a closer location.”

For parking areas in San Diego, take time and look at ACE Parking. They have been around for 60 years and focus on commercial, airport, hotels, resort, and valet parking.
