Need Space at Home for Your Car? Go Underground (Video)

With one car parked on top of the closed Cardok, the second parking space remains out of sight below ground.

Press the remote control, and the Cardok starts to lift, revealing the additional parking space inside. Within less than thirty seconds, the Cardok is completely open. For safety, the remote control has a simple ‘hold-to-run’ operation, meaning it stops the instant it is released.

 

A second car can then be driven onto the Cardok’s lower platform. Press the button again, and the Cardok is closed, hiding the second car from view. The driveway returns to its normal appearance; the top car can be driven away, and a passer-by would struggle to guess what’s concealed underneath.

I found this amazing, too expensive I should imagine for most of us, but still a great idea.

    It’s a fantastic idea especially in inner city areas where space is at a premium. I definitely want one!

    Hi magsx2, Just catching up, after a week away at Burleigh Heads for a nephew’s wedding. Parking was a problem in Amsterdam, with people sharing cars, but having to leave them on the street. I couldn’t get over it when we visited Melbourne – we stayed in East Melbourne, near Fitzroy Gardens (and Captain Cook’s house) – and everyone left their cars (BMWs, Mercedes, etc.) parked in the street, as there was no car accommodation. If I had a flash car, I would want it locked up each night in a proper garage. The trouble is, these people didn’t have space for their first car, let alone make arrangements for a second one!

      Hi malc50,
      I gathered you went on a holiday, sounds like you were keep busy traveling around, it’s great to get away for awhile every now and then.
      I would never have dreamed that people would leave those sorts of cars out on the street regardless of where you were. I suppose it would be hard if you had nowhere to put the cars, but still, I think money or not, I would have an old car or move to somewhere that had a lock up garage.

    We have 15 houses in our street … and 29 cars between us. Sounds like just our thing!

    Hi travelrat,
    Oh my goodness, I think the street needs a multi story car park. That is a lot of cars, I noticed that they have squeezed as many cars as possible in the front yards.
    If everyone decided to leave at the same time they could very easily cause a traffic jam. 🙂
