A locally owned bike shop located in Minneapolis recently called us to service their parking lot. Due to major potholes, divots in the ground, and other damage to pavement, they were dealing with customer complaints. Although customers were pleased with their service, timely bike repair, and affordable rates, they weren’t all too pleased when parking in a pothole filled lot, which caused damage to their vehicle. They called the best company for parking lot maintenance Minneapolis has to offer, and upon receiving the call our team immediately was able to go out to the bike shop and provide a service quote. Plehal Blacktopping was able to begin work on the highly damaged parking lot at the back of the bike shop fairly quickly.
We began with the potholes. Initially we had to sand and smooth the pavement so that we could begin the work on solid ground. We had to create an even canvas to begin working from, so as to properly fix the damage in the parking lot. Once evened, leveled, and sanded, we filled all potholes, we smoothed out the rough areas, we covered the old pavement, and applied an entirely new coat, which completely changed the dingy, dirty appearance which the bike shop was suffering from. Not only does the new parking lot have spaces where customers can actually park without damaging their bikes or cars, but it looks excellent as well. So, the shop’s appearance has improved and has the ability to offer customers longer term parking when they need to come in for larger repair jobs.
Because the parking lot had been neglected for years, it did take our service techs some time to smooth out the entire area, and properly level the ground. Once this was completed, however, the remainder of the repairs were aesthetic, and we got the old lot to look brand new in a matter of a few day’s time. The bike’s shop increase in patronage has not only helped them increase profits, but also draw in new customers via word of mouth.
