Australian Parking App Kerb has launched in Kenya to help homeowners rent out their car park spaces.
Kerb offers a car management solution that lets churches, schools, shopping malls, and even learning institutions to better manage their parking spaces. It also enables businesses to put their car parking spaces to work helping them generate extra cash. Residential committees can also use the app to monitor visitor parking spaces and manage the allocation of the spaces in apartment buildings.
Kerb Co-founder, Rob Brown said, Kerb reduces congestion and environmental impact by getting cars off roads, makes use of existing infrastructure – and means more money for locals to spend in the economy.
Kerb launched in October 2016 and is live across the world in 19 languages and localized in 300 cities. “We’re really excited about the benefits that Kerb is going to have for users”, Rob Brown said. “The app allows you to list an entire car park up in minutes, and each individual bay can be customised by availability, price and vehicle type.”
Kerb parking spaces start at KES 300 a day, depending on where they are located. Those who list their parking space with Kerb use the extra cash on anything from house deposits to holidays, or their kids’ school or university fees. The app isn’t just for parking cars either – Kerb can also be used for renting and leasing spaces for motorbikes, boats, trucks – even helicopters.
Kerb was launched in 2016 by Rob Brown, one of Australia most prominent marketers, and Matt Salmon, a highly regarded technologist and app developer). The Car Park Management Platform allows leasers to list an entire car park in minutes: each individual space can be customised by availability, price and vehicle type.
The Kerb app is available for download for iOS and Android.
