First impressions are everything. And for your big day, we urge you to do something that sets a great tone from the very beginning. And to us, that something is professional valet parking. Think about how memorable this will be for your guests. It certainly will be something that many of them will not be expecting, but it will be such a pleasant surprise. We realize that some people consider this to be a luxury, but we look at it very differently. If you want your wedding to evoke visions of elegance and luxury, then valet parking is the way to go. Not to mention the convenience that it provides everyone. Also, it is one more way for you to say thank you to your special guests for their support. But we will say something about your search for a professional valet service. You will want to make sure that you are going to get great service so you need to take your search very seriously. Hiring the first company that you find out about is not the best mode of operation because you and your guests could be in for a huge disappointment when things start going very badly. So, with that in mind, we are here to help you with the process. You should start by looking around the Charlotte area for quality valet providers. This guide will help you do that. It will also help you to decide which candidate is the best one for your wedding needs.
So, what is your first move in this pursuit of a professional valet service. You need to find some quality candidates that exist in the Charlotte area so you can investigate them. We are here to help you discover potential candidates. It won't be as hard as you think coming up with candidates. The world wide web is an amazing source of information. We suggest that you do a Google search for “valet parking in the Charlotte area.” You should get back a number of resulting websites. Start checking out each one and determine which one looks like a very reputable and experienced provider. Start keeping a list of potential valet providers. Also start talking to your family, friends and coworkers about any valet service that they have experienced. If anyone was super impressed with the service they received, make sure that you get the name of the provider and add them to your working list. And never ever forget about your wedding vendors that you already have a relationship with. If there is anything that experienced wedding vendors know about besides their own business, it is what other wedding vendors are doing. So, they will more than likely have a candidate or two that you should check out.
It is very important that you meet with each valet service in person and look a representative right in the eyes. This will give you a sense of their seriousness and what the business means to them. It is a great idea to start with a discussion about licensing and insurance. There is no need to continue your conversation if they say no to either. Tell them the number of guests that will be at your wedding. Usually a valet provider will send a certain number of valets based on the number of guests who will be there. You certainly can be the judge as to whether you feel that the number they will be providing is enough. Ask how much it would cost if you wanted an additional valet. Will permits be required for your location? Provide pictures of the parking area and get their opinion on how things could be setup. Ask if they will show up on location on a day before your wedding and figure out all of the logistics. Where is the best place for the drop off? Will they be prepared for bad weather like rain? It would be nice if the valets were equipped with umbrellas just in case. You obviously need to find out how much their service will cost you? All of this pertinent information will help your mind wrap around the candidate who will be best for your big day.
