There is always something happening in a Saemes car park. We have put together some of the funniest, sweetest and most beautiful anecdotes for you.

"Hello, I have an extremely urgent request. My car was parked in your old Saemes Patriarches car park in Paris 5th. It's not there any more. Can you tell me where my car is so I can pick it up ASAP." The Patriarches car park has been managed by SPIE AUTOCITE since 2014! 


I hope you don’t mind me getting in contact with a slightly strange request.
I was parked in your car park... and when I was leaving I came across a man and fell immediately in love.
Our eyes met and we smiled at each other... I really think it was love at first sight, but I was so awestruck that I couldn't bring myself to do anything about it...
We left the car park at the same time, it must have been 10:15 pm
He was just in front of me at the barrier.
I know my request might sound crazy but it comes from a sincere place. I really want to find this man and I'm doing everything I can to make that happen.
I know the details of cars/customers are confidential but, if you believe in the power of love and the magic of Christmas, I hope you will be able to help me find him by identifying his number plate on the security cameras or something...
I really appreciate you taking the time to read my story and I'm sorry if I've caused you any trouble.
I wish you a very happy holidays and really hope you can help me out.


"I like underground car parks - most of the time - more than parking on the street... I've heard a vicious rumour that it's because you don't have to parallel park (that might not be a complete lie, I have to admit). "


Memories from the car park staffuand


One day I was working in the morning when a woman arrived at the desk crying. She kept saying, "They've stolen my car from your car park." I asked to her to come inside and to calm down and tell me what had happened. After explaining, we went looking for her car together. When we found it, she was so grateful she hugged me."

A gentleman arrived in his car at the car park exit and called us over, very angry, because his pass card wasn't working. When I asked to see the card, it turned out to be for one of the neighbouring car parks.
There was a man, one day, who had the bright idea of paying his parking by putting money in a meter outside... and then driving down into the car park!


Other things we have seen in our car parks:


A woman who folded her banknote in four so she could slide it into the ticket machine's coin slot...

A distraught driver whose dog had just eaten his parking ticket. 

An elderly woman who had prepared her change in advance but thrown it in the bin when she got to the barrier because she thought it was like the coin baskets on the motorway!
