Efficient parking does not benefit the environment
Q-Park works with available and well-functioning parking facilities since
Q-Park also has a number of parking facilities with electric charges for environmental friendly cars. This to simplify the ordinary day for our customers who choose to drive green.

Q-Park’s parking attendants work on commission
Q-Park follows the salaries stated in the collective bargain agreement. There is neither remunerations nor commissions in our parking attendant’s salaries.
Q-Park’s parking attendants try to not be seen
Efficient surveillance is equal to being visible in the parking areas. It is a prerequisite to get everyone who parks in our parking facilities to respect the stated rules for parking. Our goal is that:
We label the Q-Park cars with our logo. Our parking attendants carry the Q-Park uniform, approved by the Swedish County Administrative Board. This clearly indicates that we work with parking surveillance.
We own and control all Q-Park parking facilities
Q-Park is indeed the largest manager of parking facilities in Sweden. However, property owners, cooperative houses, councils or county council always contract Q-Park. Our contractors and Q-Park conduct the tariffs and regulations of the respective parking facilities, as part of our partnering contracts.
Q-Park issues incorrect control fees on purpose
Q-Park follows a meticulous quality process in order to avoid issuing incorrect control fees. We consider parking surveillance important, a task demanding a thorough and correct routine. When we survey a parking facility, we ensure that rules and regulations are followed. Therein lies the prerequisites for easy parking. To ensure quality of our parking surveillance, Q-Park adheres to the following routines:
Should you, despite the quality process, consider a control fee to be incorrect, you can appeal. We will scrutinize your case and conclude if we can or cannot dismiss the control fee. You can also get help and information regarding parking rules, thus avoiding getting a control fee in the future. During the time we deal with the case, you do not have to pay the control fee.
Parking should be free of charge
There is no such thing as free parking – someone always pays for the parking offered by society. Where parking is free of charge, the Swedish taxpayers or property owners pay for the operation and maintenance of the parking facility. Regards to parking controlled by fees, the ones in need of parking pays for the time they chose to park.
The demand, location and quality of the parking control the tariffs. Parking customers decide for themselves where they wish to park and which service they want to pay for.
Society does not need parking surveillance
Should there be no parking surveillance, the traffic situation would look different to how it is today:
Behind Q-Park’s parking surveillance, there is a contractor calling for dispensation. Q-Park ensures that:
Private parking is unreasonably expensive
Demand controls the parking fees. It costs more to park in attractive areas than where there is a lower demand. In general, Q-Park offers parking in attractive areas, which effects the rent of the parking spaces. Should you wish to pay less, parking outside the most central areas and continuing the journey by public transport is an option.
When maintaining a parking facility, as well as operating the parking area, Q-Park provides:
All this adds up to what Q-Park calls quality. This ensures that you are safe when you park with us.
Q-Park tows cars away
Q-Park never tows away cars – the council only has this authorization. Nevertheless, Q-Park can ask the council to tow away a vehicle parked in a manner which makes it dangerous for the nearby traffic, or which an unauthorized vehicle occupies a parking space rented by a paying customer.
Q-Park does not fill an important function of our society
Parking as an important factor in how conveniently you can leave your car. Q-Park ensures that the parking experience is effortless. Our parking customers have flexible deals, where a variety of season tickets are adapted to individual needs. Q-Park ensures quality by:
