Red Marlin appointed by the UK’s leading online parking portal (YPS), the UK’s leading car parking online marketplace, has appointed specialist automotive PR and marketing agency Red Marlin to support its ambitious business growth in 2016.

Headed by former BBC Dragon’s Den contestant Harrison Woods, is an online marketplace that rents out driveways, private off-street parking spaces, lock-up garages and, significantly, spaces from commercial car park operators. Hourly, daily and monthly pre-booking is offered at 250,000 parking spaces nationwide, ranging from NCP car parks to single private parking spaces.


Red Marlin’s brief will include raising awareness of YourParkingSpace’s convenient and cost-saving approach to parking with home owners and motorists, as well as helping the business expand its portfolio of private individuals or businesses who can earn extra money by renting out unused parking spaces.

Red Marlin has already achieved some great results with stories across a range of print and online media, including The Mail Online, The Daily Telegraph and Men’s Health resulting in increased website traffic and sales enquiries.

“YourParkingSpace is a fantastic example of a modern, up-to-date solution which utilises technology to turn an industry on its head,” comments Danny Rughoobeer, managing director, Red Marlin. “Having the opportunity to work with such a dynamic and visionary group of guys is a real privilege and we look forward to helping them achieve their objectives.”
