PlumValet Launch in New York

Sunday February 15th, Madison Square Garden, New York City.  The end of the NBA All-Star game weekend.  It is also the day that ParkJockey has chosen to launch PlumValet, its valet parking service, in New York.  What a challenge for a launch: 8 professional valets from our partner, Elegant Valet, 30 reserved parking spots at a Rapid Park nearby, the lowest temperatures in 20 years, and a lot of traffic!  But the team is ready.  As soon as the first car arrives everything kicks in:

– “Thanks for using PlumValet, my name is Carlos I will look after your vehicle”

– “Use our app to request your car back, please give us 15 min notice”

– “Thank you for using PlumValet.  Sign up on PlumValet.com and get your next booking free”

The launch is a success.  The users are delighted, they could stop right in front of the Arena and avoid the freezing windchill.  All cars were returned safely and there was no need to use our $2 million insurance policy.

We are really proud that all our users trusted us with their cars.  That you drop off a brand new Porsche Carrera 4S or a 2005 Toyota Camry, we understand that your car is special to you and therefore it has to be special to our team.

Let us park you next time you are in town and enjoy life more!
