If you’re looking for extra space to protect your boat, car and lawn equipment, Park and Zip may be the answer. Branded by Flowery Branch residents Jerry and Mary Ann Ford, the heavy-duty oversized storage bags are made of the same material as automobile airbags.

“When I saw this product come across my desk when I was in commercial sales, I thought it would have great applications to expand garage space,” said Ford, who developed the brand. “Available in 15 sizes, the bags can cover everything from a PWC on a trailer to a boat or camper. And the best thing about it is the 360-degree protection keeps out the weather, insects and animals, dirt and dust, as well as UV light.”

The white fabric comes in four finishes: nylon, coated nylon, PET and coated PET. The bags feature heavy-duty zippers.

“You can drive right up onto the open bag, park your vehicle, then just zip it closed,” he said. “It’s like taking your garage with you, no matter where you go.”

Park and Zip is distributed by We’ve Got You Covered boat covers in Buford, and the product can be ordered online at, which will be launched in early July. For more information or questions about what size you need, call 678 828-7018.
