New Yorkers in Manhattan and Brooklyn can get rid of the stress of having to look for street parking all with the swipe of an app — which is willing to pay new customers’ parking tickets if they sign up.
Valet Anywhere is a New York-based startup that offers users, through the use of an app, valet parking wherever they are. Trained valets pick up the cars and park them inside a secure parking lot.
“Street parking in New York City is a complicated, confusing nightmare, and too often great drivers get saddled with parking tickets,” said Robert Kao, Valet Anywhere co-founder and CEO. “Valet Anywhere wants to ease this burden and offer users a better way to park.”
The startup announced on Thursday that it will pay new customers’ parking tickets, up to $115, when they sign up for the monthly service.
To redeem the offer, new users can call Valet Anywhere directly and mention the deal or on the app — available both on Android and IOS — type in the promo code “PAYMYTIX” when signing up.
The discount will then appear on the new user’s first month of parking. Users can sign up by choosing one of three monthly plans — all including monthly storage in a secure, indoor lot -- starting at $279 per month and going up to $999 per month.
Potential users can also decided to sign up for a $199 monthly pay-as-you-go plan which offers monthly storage with an additional $45 fee per round trip service to and from the lot.
Any cars that are parked using Valet Anywhere are covered by the company’s $2 million insurance policy.
Users can also request additional services such as car washes, fuel-ups, maintenance checks and more.
