BROOKLYN - For some, there is nothing more stressful than searching for a parking spot in Brooklyn, but a new online service may help ease those frustrations. 

ZIRX valet car service made its debut in the borough Thursday after launching on the West Coast last year. 

Drivers simply download the ZIRX app on their smartphones, plug in their location and in just a few minutes, a ZIRX  agent will pick up your car and drive it to a secure garage. The agents will also bring the vehicle back to you. 

The cost is $5 for pickup, another $5 for drop off and $3 for every hour the car is parked. 

ZIRX is currently serving Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights, DUMBO and Vinegar Hill, but it plans to expand throughout the city in the coming months. 

For those who are nervous about giving it a try, ZIRX says it has a $2 million insurance policy for each car that they park.
