Would you like it if your car and garage just popped out of the ground when you wanted to use them? Minus clutter. Lots of space. Sounds dreamy?.
Pop-up garages Thunderbirds aircraft hangar style (in Tracy Island), are the latest fad for home owners. Hydraulic lift based parking spaces have existed before, but this one is innovative.
This £50,000 Cardok parking option that is futuristic as well as effective is a Cardok that lifts out from the ground when operated electronically. The hydraulic platform can be hidden under a water feature in your home compound, a patch of gravel or a second car too.
It uses a hydraulic platform that can be hidden under a water feature, flowerbed or patch of gravel – or even a second car. Reportedly, enquiries for the product have doubled since its 2008 July’s Hampton Court Palace Flower Show promotion. Its waiting list is four months long. A boon for Londoners wishing to use their garages as extra rooms, and those elsewhere too.
Cardok officials say it is more secure than a garage or driveway, giving the vehicle protection from natural elements too, and helps harvest rainwater, better.
The lift takes 10 weeks to build, about three days to install, operates silently.
