The modern shopping experience is a far cry from days past.
Consumers are spoilt for choice and they are prepared to vote with their feet if they don’t like the shopping centre’s atmosphere or retail environment. First impressions count, so centre owners and managers must respond to shoppers’ needs – starting with car parks. Have you ever considered if your car park is actually losing business for you and your retailers because it is too hot or uncomfortable for families and their children? Your return on investment could be adversely affected if your car park shade structures are not up to the mark.
Providing quality car park shade sends a message to your shoppers that you care about their welfare. It is also likely to increase their stay time in the centre while contributing to a superior overall retail experience that attracts even more shoppers and premium retailers.
Installing car park shade at your shopping centre can increase your revenue in five key ways:
Conversely, a shopping centre with no shade for car parking – or a shabby structure – creates a negative feeling as soon as consumers drive into your outlet. Their likely response will be to limit their time in the shopping centre or, worse still, switch their loyalty to another centre that offers protection for their vehicle. The equation is simple – poor car parking shade structures result in lower shopper satisfaction, fewer consumers and less retail income for the centre. In today’s competitive markets, centre owners can’t allow that to happen.
Of course, not any old shaded car parking will do. Erecting quality shade structures that are designed to suit the particular needs of your shopping centre is essential. That means insisting on car parking shade structures that match your budget while delivering safety and longevity; it also means avoiding shade structures that are less resistant to vandalism and do not have an appropriate warranty.
Centre owners and managers who are considering erecting car park shade structures should factor in some important considerations when assessing designs and car parking shades suppliers:
All of these issues are crucial to ensure that your car parking shades maximise the benefits for your shoppers and retailers while delivering the highest possible return on investment for the centre.

Greenline worked to our time line and delivered as per the spec. Their work was what was expected.
Friendly, professional communications and extensive help provided in the grant application process as well as excellent execution of the project.
Extremely easy to deal with. Professional service. Very happy with the completed job.
I find engaging with Greenline completely professional. The customer service is exemplary and the three projects I have been involved in with Greenline gives me confidence in their communication, ability to meet deadlines and appease a customer, quality of work, competency in meeting regulations and OHS measures
I have great confidence in this team/company.
I have used Greenline for a number of years now as I have always found them to provide excellent customer service, great quality and reliability.
I have had a number of shade sails installed by Greenline and our most recent project was a covered walkway to provide extra shelter for our students.
From day one, the walkway was such a big hit, with so many students using it that we actually had to provide extra staff in the area for additional student supervision. Thank you Greenline.
From my first meeting with a Greenline representative I was very impressed with the professional presentation about the company as well as the work they would do and service they would provide if they were to construct our COLA project.
The process relating to construction was very well explained with timelines, contractors details and security and safety measures put in place. Communication throughout the project was regular and informative. Contractors working on site were very co-operative and professional whilst performing their construction tasks.
Overall, the finished product is absolutely great. It has exceeded all our expectations and is now a real asset for the school.
Greenline did a great job here and I would recommend them to any school wanting to develop a COLA.
