From the moment the first car was parked, customer service was the focus of Lone Star Valet’s parking operation. Since then, we’ve evolved into a reputable professional parking company where that same exceptional customer service has dictated everything from our uniforms to our procedures. In that, we have never faltered.
Our founders & management’s simple mission statement encompasses Lone Star Valet’s service standards and expectations. Remarkable customer service defines our company from our valet parking attendants to our executive team and this running mantra is instilled within us from our very first day. And yet, we refuse to stop at customer service. We know the importance of appearing trustworthy which is why we also expect our team members to be well groomed and in proper uniform at all times.
Although an elegant image and outstanding customer service are our foundation, it is also important that we reach beyond what is expected within the valet industry which is why we obsessively monitor risk management, ensuring our clients’ comfort while handling their customers’ or guests’ vehicles.
We are proud to offer our services in the following cities. If you are looking for service in an area not listed, please contact our business development team.
