10 Years Of JustPark

JustPark Founder and CEO Anthony Eskinazi has a special announcement.

Today is a special day for everyone involved here at JustPark HQ – as well as each and every one of our million-plus drivers and space owners who regularly use the service the world over.

UK Introduces The World’s First Sharing Economy Tax Breaks

Yesterday’s Budget announcement brought with it not only the usual optimistic forecasts, merciless cuts and back-bencher jeers. And no, we’re not talking about Theresa May’s dress or the extra dosh we’ll have to fork out for a can of Coke.

Mr Osborne’s latest red box also bore glad tidings for micro-entrepreneurs – including JustPark space owners – across the country, introducing the world’s first sharing economy tax breaks.

Ten Ways You Can Make Money Through The Sharing Economy

The sharing economy is one of the hottest trends in the world right now – and at JustPark we’re immensely proud to be a part of this exciting, growing movement.

We’ve all heard of Airbnb, right? Well, renting out your spare room online is just the tip of the sharing economy iceberg. You could be helping someone look the part by lending them that designer dress you never wear, or by delivering a much appreciated birthday present to a complete stranger.

“Oh, I won’t ever forget that one!” JustPark investor Ivan tells us his worst parking nightmare

When we completed our crowdfunding round in March earlier this year, we added a-whole-nother dimension to the JustPark tribe: our new investors. Thousands of them. We had a hunch that this was going to be interesting, and we were right. It’s been a delight getting to know the people behind the share certificates.

Meet Ivan, a regular in the JustPark community inbox. (We can’t tell you his last name, but rest assured he’s almost definitely either Batman or The Stig.) Here’s what happened when we probed him about all things parking and beyond.

Interview With A #ParkingLegend:
Ian Woolcott, Bristol

There’s more to parking than tyres and tarmac. We love meeting the people powering the JustPark platform, and this week we had a chat with Ian Woolcott – a space owner in Bristol and mechanic by trade – to find out who he is, how he JustParks, and why he’s generally awesome.

Fun fact: a “knight in shining armour” to many a motorist, Ian once won an award for swimming through a lake to rescue a stranded Land Rover when a fishing trip went horribly wrong. Safe to say he’ll always have a special plaice in our hearts.
