A car has four wheels, these 4 wheels get you from A to B. They get you to your restaurant, to your basketball game, to your date.
In the 1950s, the cars did the same, but they also got you out of a tight parallel parking spot. A fifth wheel in the ‘trunk’ of the car would lower almost hermit crab-like, perpendicular to the other wheels, and allow you to pivot out of the space to thus reverse out hassle-free. Yes, this really happened back then – Check it out below!
This really didn’t catch on, even though the thought a full 360 degree turn from your driveway, into your garage sounds pretty awesome. Now in the 21st century, digital disruption is at the forefront of everything we do, especially in traditional industries. We have these applications that make your travel logistics easier and more efficient for example the likes of CityMapper and Uber. With CityMapper you are wheel-less. With Uber, you are wheeled around.
With ParkJockey, you have a 5th wheel. Once those 4 wheels have got you from A, the metaphorical 5th wheel will help you find you a space to park your car, before you get to B. We are that lesser known but vital middle-man.
Enjoy your 5th wheel! 😉
