Downtown Parking Tips from the BBB
May 3, 2013, Memphis TN - Downtown Memphis is going to be crowded with cars tonight as the Beale Street Music Festival opens and the Memphis Grizzlies host the Los Angeles Clippers in game 6 of the NBA Playoffs. Parking spots may be hard to find. And sometimes that friendly parking attendant doesn’t really work for the parking facility at all.
In 2012 BBB of the Mid-South processed 16 complaints against parking facilities.
One Memphis resident complained that the parking attendant did not provide a ticket to be placed on his dash. “When I returned to my car, I found that I had a parking violation slip on my car,” he told BBB. I also noticed that many of the other cars in the lot had what appeared to be a similar slip. I am concerned that the person standing at the entrance of the parking lot may have been running a scam. ”
A Horn Lake MS man paid $5 to park in a downtown lot but saw no indication of how much time this fee allowed. “When we returned, less than 2 ½ hours later, we discovered a note on the windshield demanding $65.00. They explained that the $5.00 was only good for two hours.”
