Ever wondered why hotels and restaurants offer a valet service, or what kind of valet supplies are necessary to run a valet service? Read on for some of the coolest facts about valet services that you never knew.

Why Do People Valet?

Let’s get that out of the way. The average driver in New York City is wasting 107 hours out of their year just looking for parking. That translates to more than $2,200 in wasted time and gas. In Los Angeles that number is 85 hours, and in Washington D.C. you can expect to spend 65 hours a year looking for parking. The United States’ top five worst parking cities are New York, LA, San Francisco, Washington D.C., and Seattle. But even the average American driver is wasting $345 worth of time and gas looking for parking, and spending 17 hours a year doing it. When you go out for a nice trip or a fine meal, the last thing you want to do is wander around looking for a parking space. Who wouldn’t rather grab a valet ticket and let someone else do it?

Just this stat alone proves that the popularity of buying a used car is skyrocketing across the United States.

China has the second largest number of cars, and this amounts to 78 million. In addition to owning a car, many Americans own a second or third vehicle, such as a motorcycle or truck.

Vehicle Maintenance

In order to keep vehicles running optimally, they need to be well-maintained on a regular basis. Recent data, however, shows that many drivers aren’t as vigilant as they could be. On an annual basis, more than $60 billion worth of car maintenance isn’t performed. This doesn’t include maintenance needs for other types of vehicles, however.
While each car owner will likely have their own reason for allowing their vehicle maintenance to go unperformed, this can often cause other issues to develop. Furthermore, when basic repairs are needed, postponing these can become even more costly. The average cost of a repair in the Uni
