To show your guests the respect and gratitude they deserve, a private valet company is a service that will go a long way in saying thank you. There are some things you need to take into consideration though before hiring a valet company. And realizing that you have probably never had to conduct a search like this before, we wanted to help you as much as we possibly can with some tips on how to find the company that will give you exactly what you want.
Coming up with a list of companies to check out is your first mission. We highly recommend making use of the world wide web. Also, just talking to the people that you see everyday can provide a recommndation. If a company has various bad reviews they should not be on your list. When dealing with your guest's cars you don’t want to take any risks.
The next step is to determine a budget and call the companies on your list. Inquire about pricing. Before you hire a company you need to get some information. You want experienced valet attendants. You do not want a sixteen year old kid parking your guest's car. Ask about the age and experience of the attendants. You should also ask for driving records. If an attendant has a bad driving record, you should go to a different company. The company should carry some type of general liability insurance. If anything were to happen to your guest's car due to a valet attendant the company should be responsible for fixing the damages.
Once you have found a company you wish to work with, ask them for a written contract. You will need to provide them with the date, time and location of where they will be setting up. over the contract and you completely understand it before you provide your signature. Never sign a contract you do not understand or disagree with. Be sure that you ask the company about gratuity. If gratuity is not included, you should ask your guests to tip their valet attendant or you can personally take care of the gratuity.
