I have much pleasure in certifying to the reliability of the Parkeon parking meter and to the professional approach and quality of work of Australian Parking and Revenue Control Services (APARCS).
Council in 1999 installed 328 Reino multi-bay parking meters at Bondi Beach, Bondi Junction and Bronte Beach. In 2006 it was decided to replace these meters with pay and display machines with coin and credit card functionality.
APARCS tender for the supply, installation and maintenance of 262 Parkeon Strada Rapide pay and display parking meters was accepted by Council. Installation commenced in December 2006 and was completed on time and budget in February 2007.
The Parkeon meter has preformed far beyond that was expected of it. Up time of the meter has exceeded 99.9% and income forecasts have also been exceeded. In regards to the maintenance of the meters, I have found that APARCS have at all times carried out their work in a professional and timely manner and have found their representatives to be honest, conscientious and reliable.
Having been able to continually observe the performance of the Parkeon Strada Rapide parking meter and the work of APARCS for Council, I can confidently recommend the meter and their work to any organisation requiring a reliable meter and company to undertake parking meter installation and maintenance.
