Katy Phillips should we use this? I think it works out cheaper than what it would for us to catch a taxi x
Can I get a reserved spot lol 😂
That some pretty Shit parking guys... Could.at least try and keep it in the lines....
Hi guys, interested in offering charging to electric vehicles? You could charge a few more dollars to cover the cost of electricity. Slow charge overnight from a normal power point.
Hi Chris, we certainly are once there is enough demand. Good point. Will go with slow chargers as vehicles will be there a while. Should be able to keep additional electricity cost low for customers as we have a lot of solar and plan to put our own battery storage in the next few years. Cheers Heath
Waiting for the online booking to open - will this happen soon do you think? Would like to book a spot in October, and don't want to risk the carpark being full. What do you advise please? Thank you

New signage is up and looking awesome! Thanks to @the.baker.group & #freestylefxsigns Launceston Drive Park Fly (LDPF)'s story is a simple one - to provide great customer service and affordable longterm airport parking for the people of Launceston, northern and central Tasmania. It all started with an idea in 2013, and with the support of a group of local business people and investors has developed into what you see today.
Hardly an original idea but still a lot of hard work to make this facility a reality and to provide airport parking with a difference.
Differences in our services, our price and in supporting the environment by being energy neutral with a 20kW solar system and highly efficient LED floodlighting installed. In addition the car park is equipped for the easy installation eV charging stations in the future.
It is a business that has been locally developed and is locally owned and operated. #ourstory #launceston #longterm #parkingwithadifference #energyneutral #solarpower #localbusiness #openingsoon ... See MoreSee Less
