Default Parking at Port Everglades

Has anyone ever used United Airport Parking to get to the cruise port in Ft. Lauderdale? Their website says they have covered parking 4 blocks from the port. Their price for 14 days is about $75 less than at Port Everglades.

If you've used them, what's your opinion?

I've always used port parking, just across the street from the ship, or right next to it. It was EXPENSIVE as it's gone up to $15 per day the last cruise. That "off site" parking may be 4 blocks from the port, but it'd be lots further from the ships, as that's a BIG port area, and I'll bet it's at least a mile or more from your ship. If their transportation to the ship is O.K., it would be worth it to save $75 IMO. I'll be watching this post too, to see if anyone else has used their services.

Haven't used them but have used:

parknfly does not have covered but was great and will used them again.

I did some checking about the one you are asking about and it is really a car rental place that happens to rent space for cruisers. Found a major complaint against them on an other forum. And have never found a complaint about parknfly.
