Have you ever gotten in your car and wondered whether you were going to quickly and easily park as you headed to your destination? If you’re like most drivers, we’re hearing a resounding “yes!”

And have you ever returned to your parked car to find the battery dead, a tire flat or your keys locked inside, leaving you wondering how to find help, and fast? With a brand-new partnership between ParkWhiz and Urgent.ly you no longer have to wonder or worry about either.

Starting today Urgent.ly’s on-demand roadside assistance is available with a click from within the ParkWhiz Android and iOS applications. It’s the first ever pairing of a parking service that both let’s you see your spot in advance and view nearby roadside help on a map, watching realtime as it arrives.

It couldn’t be easier to use: 

  • Tell ParkWhiz where you want to go and they’ll show you the closest spots and available rates for your date and time.
  • Book your spot with the app (cancel anytime).
  • Drive to the garage and your spot’s waiting.

We could add a number 4 with “tap to request roadside assistance from within the ParkWhiz app” but we think you get it.

“This is a perfect example of how Urgent.ly continues to extend its services to other relevant products,” said Rick Robinson, Urgent.ly’s co-founder and SVP of product. “We want to be everywhere customers in need are; with so many lock-outs and dead batteries happening in parking lots across the country this is a perfect match for us.”

So grab the ParkWhiz app here. And as always, download and install the Urgent.ly app so you’re always ready.
