Follow our safety guidelines to make sure you continue to use Stashbee safely during the pandemic.
Ask your Host or Guest to jump on a Facetime or Skype call so they can show you around the space without having to meet in person.
We can arrange the safe pick up and drop off of your stuff so that you don’t have to leave your home or use public transport.
If you do have to visit a space, stay safe by wearing a mask and keeping a 2m distance from anyone not from your household.
You can always move your booking start date if you need to change your plans unexpectedly.
You can use KeyNest to safely hand over the key to the space without having to meet up in person.
Take extra care to clean and sanitise your stuff and the space before and after the booking starts.

We’ve got everything you need to know about making a parking space booking in Tower Hamlets. It only takes a couple of quick steps to get you through to our *super exciting* booking confirmation page.
Start by entering the name of the location you’re interested in on our home page (or hey, even up above if you’re set on Tower Hamlets!). Remember to choose ‘parking’ instead of ‘storage’ in the ‘I need’ section. Hit the search button and you’ll be redirected to all the active listings in your chosen area in no time at all.
Take your time and look through the various options in order to find one that matches exactly what you’re after. There are more than 10 different features and usage filters available to help you get as specific as possible.
Once you’ve found the right listing, enter the start date, as well as the booking duration. That’s it! Hit the ‘Book Space’ button and your request will be fired off after payment has been processed.
For your booking to be processed, you’ll be asked to enter payment details (credit or debit) first. The payment is held in your account as soon as you make a request for a new booking.
If the Host declines for some reason, the amount is refunded back to you straight away. When a booking is approved, you can expect to pay the Host monthly for the rental, in advance of the 30 days ahead.
The Stashbee team prides itself on always facilitating safe and secure bookings - and we’re not just talking about doing so on a payment level (although that’s also safe as houses). We’ve got all kinds of checks and balances in place to guarantee protection for bookings of all lengths:
Expect to sign our Booking Terms as soon as you make a request for a new rental. Your Host will have to do the same, which will ensure that you’re both entering into the agreement on the same page. If you ever want to double check something in the terms, you can find your signed agreement on your Stashbee dashboard.
If you’re worried about a listing being created by a bot, don’t be. Before any listings go live on Stashbee, Hosts have to verify their identities. This helps to preserve the legitimacy of the booking process at all times.
Our friendly team and Help Centre are also there to answer any questions you may have during the booking process.
Because insurance isn’t covered for parking space rentals, some Hosts feel more comfortable when Guests pay a small security deposit before the booking period kicks off. This isn’t a requirement, but it does offer them some protection in case of late payments, cancellations outside of the cooling off period, and so forth.
If everything goes according to plan, like it usually does, the full amount will be paid back into your account when the booking wraps up. There’s very little for you to worry about as Guest, especially if you’ve updated your car insurance before parking your car in the rented space for the first time.
Thanks to our friends at Stripe, payments on the Stashbee platform are safe and secure every time. You’ll never be prompted away from the website to make your monthly payment.
Payments are also covered in other ways, including in the Booking Terms we’ve already mentioned, as well as our Cancellations and Refunds policy. As long as you handle all payments directly through Stashbee, we’ve got you covered under both of these, as well as our general Terms and Conditions.
The pandemic has made interacting with people slightly more challenging than in the past. This doesn’t mean that you should be scared to engage with a potential Host (and miss out on that amazing parking space near work). It just means that we all have to think a little bit differently about how the process goes down.
The Stashbee team got to work as soon as lockdown orders were issued, creating a dedicated updates page that offers tips to facilitate safe interactions during these uncertain times.
We took things a step farther by also offering more flexibility for changes to bookings, as well as extending the cooling off period for cancellations, provided you can prove it is COVID-19 related.
Yes, under certain circumstances. Single and double yellow lines are there to help make the roads safer for everyone. They are meant to help prevent accidents caused by obstructions, especially during rush hour traffic.
Single yellow line parking is allowed in Tower Hamlets, but only outside of the restricted times shown on the nearby signs themselves. Remember to double check these times, as they can vary from area to area.
Parking on a double yellow line is never allowed. Doing so by mistake can end up being a very costly activity. If you’d prefer not to tempt fate, book a parking spot with Stashbee with zero risk of penalties instead.
There are five different parking permits to choose from in Tower Hamlets. Each is priced according to the estimated amount of CO2 emissions your vehicle will emit on the road.
Residence parking permitsare relatively common, but getting one involves a series of relatively complicated steps (check out the Tower Hamlets government website for more info on that). When you see exactly what this entails, you might be tempted to have a look at some of our available parking space listings instead.
The application itself requires a lot of documentation. We’re talking proof of address, proof of vehicle ownership, and more. Your documents also can’t exceed 20MB or the application won’t be processed, and you’re right back to square one.
Blue Badges are there to help people who are registered blind or have severe walking difficulties find accessible places to park in town. The badges are issued to those with the disability, and don’t apply to their carers or relatives.
There are numerous disabled parking bays for Blue Badge holders in Tower Hamlets. You should also note that there are no less than 17 instances where Blue Badge holders are not allowed to park under any circumstances.
This is where a guaranteed parking space with Stashbee might come in handy. You can be sure you’ll have a dedicated parking spot and avoid unexpected fines later.
Whether you’re a first time user or have been using the platform for a long time, we’re always here to answer any questions you may have.
