Suzie, Kent, UK
Suzie’s property is a listed building, set on a village green and is nestled between a pub, shops and church. The private garden and driveway, at the rear of the property, is accessed via a steep, narrow ramp and is approached from the pub car park.
Due to the limited turning space in the garden and the position of a wall, Suzie faced the daily dilemma of either undertaking several three point turns in order to drive forwards or reverse her car down the ramp with the risk of scraping it on the wall. The result – Suzie would park her car at the bottom of the ramp or on the road outside her house.
Suzie realised that a ‘car turning circle’ would be an ideal solution but was unaware whether such a product existed or if there would be sufficient space to install one.
Suzie searched the internet and found SPIN-IT Car Turntables. After a visit to the property by one of our Directors Suzie was reassured that a turntable installation would be possible.
Prior to installation, she engaged a builder to landscape the garden and prepare the groundworks for the turntable. Throughout the process SPIN-IT was on hand to answer any questions and to provide detailed technical drawings. Suzie chose a gravel surface for her turntable to match the driveway surface and in keeping with the design and age of property the turntable was edged with block paving.
Suzie is now able to enter and leave her property safely, quickly and with ease.
“The turntable has completely revolutionised my life. The investment has been completely worthwhile and has enhanced the property”.
