Tight spaces require a car turntable. Anyone selling one locally?

Those in high density urban areas know that space is premium and the price for space is sky high the closer you get to the city centre. Aside from the need for personal space at home or at the office, there is also a need for space to park oneís transport. Whether the transport is a car or even a motorcycle, space is sometimes hard to come by. You may have a piece of land to develop a small house in a prime piece of land and the parking that you need for the car must share the same space you need to build your living quarters on, hence a tight narrow path that makes parking, reversing seemingly impossible. Until you put in a car/bike turntable.

A car turntable is somewhat like a record on a turn table. You drive in nose first and then when you want to exit, you press a button and wallah! The car now faces the direction you came in from. Tight spaces arenít an issue anymore and everything is slightly safer and you may not be reversing into traffic anymore.

One more good point is that you neck doesnít need to suffer as you donít need to look at the rear of the car anymore. This is something very useful for some of the elderly where a slight twist may cause great injury. It is also useful if youíre someone whoís utterly lazy to the bone.

And yes, it also helps if you have an automobile showroom or garage thatís quite small. You can pack more cars in as you may not need any space to maneuver the cars anymore as the turntable takes car of that.

I wonder if there is an agent located here in this region. The closest I could find on-line is a company based in New South Wales, Australia. The turntable sold by them seems to be able to carry a car weighing 2.2tons and those that have a wheelbase of not more than 3.010meters. More than enough for a Mercedes Benz E-class.
