(James, I think this is OK - please delete if not)
The rusty Ivanhopper (old car) is not getting used much these days, and is on the verge of breaking down more often than it's running.
As we only use it for long trips, maybe 6 to 10 times a year, there's a fine line in cash terms between keeping the old thing running (with all the tax, servicing, insurance, etc that this entails) and hiring a nice new car every time we need to do a car journey.
The above is all background. My question is:
If we got rid of our car we would have an empty parking space. Secure (gated), and handy for transport (5 mins slow walk to Borough tube, 5 mins to Elephant tube).
Does anyone have a rough idea what the going rate might be for such a space if we were to let it out, please?
P.S. I'd also be interested to hear from anyone in the SE1 area who uses a car sharing scheme of any sort, or who has been mailshotted by one recently. I'm having difficulty finding any info about local ones.
...if you press it, they will come.
