I meeting the foreman of a work crew this evening. They have been staying in a motel since this last weekend. 15 guys with 15 trucks and 15 equipment trailers. That's 30 parking spaces. I can put the foreman and 2 guys and their vehicles in a house that has a double wide driveway and parking on the street. The other 12 guys can split my 2 big houses, each house has 8 beds.
The problem is that only 3 truck/trailers will fit in the available parking for those houses. That leaves 9 trucks and 9 trailers that need 18 parking spaces.
What would you do for 18 parking spaces? This is for approximately 6 months.
Sounds like you need to build a parking garage. See if there is a government grant. The current administration is giving money away.
A friend of mine looked into leasing a portion of a shopping centers parking lot to bring a food truck. The management company for that commercial space was open to it so maybe that could be an option?
Is there any cleared land for sale in your area?
4.95 acres. Would make a good parking area depending on distance from the rentals. Drop a pole building on it to hold all the rigs? Might pay for itself in those 6 months.
Then you would have something ready for the future. Whether it is the same as this time or storage for workers extra rigs or the like while there are there. Motorcycles maybe?
@Michael Baum There is a closed bank across the street from my biggest house. I've asked permission for my tenants to park their trucks and trailers there. I also work at a medical clinic 2 blocks away. I told (didn't ask) the office manager that company trucks and trailers would be parking there in the evening and would be gone during business hours.
