Have you ever noticed that the presence of a valet podium just has a way of making you thinking much higher of whatever establishment you’re visiting? Think about it - the finest hotels, restaurants, bars, hospitals, airports and special events all have one thing in common: when you first pull up, that valet podium is meant to be impressive. Since it is usually the first thing people will see, the right valet podium is the best way to make a great first impression.
You might not even notice it, but valet podiums are designed to be integrated into an establishment’s existing layout, to draw your attention but also not be overstated. Even the most simple valet podiums can do wonders to improve the parking experience of your customers. If placed and chosen correctly, a valet podium acts as a freestanding marker of your company’s reputation and attention to detail. It is certainly much more than just a box for your valet attendants to stand at, a valet podium is a representation of your entire business.
Before we tell you more about valet podiums, and their equipment and accessories, we want to tell you a little bit about ourselves valetspot.com, your leading source of premium valet podiums.
Our experience comes directly from the valet world
We aren’t just a group of guys who happened to figure out how valet podiums are manufactured and constructed. Many on our team have worked as valets in the past, collectively at over 30 different establishments that make use of valet podium technology. Simply put, valet podiums are our zone and we know it well.
We understand the rights and wrongs of the valet world and we have become valet podium experts, and always know what type of podium is right for any type of situation. If you don’t know which podium is right for you, then we’d much rather help you pick one than allow you to pick a default option that won’t suit your needs. A valet podium is an investment for your business and one that needs to be made wisely, so we want to be sure you choose the right one.
From our experience in the industry, we know there is a direct link between valet podiums and customer satisfaction. We also know that the proper valet podium can make the job of your employees more efficient, while making the customer’s experience more convenient. When was the last time you purchased a single item that benefited you, your employees and your customers all at the same time?
If your establishment is trying to convey an image of luxury, and you’re still just using a plain, old valet podium made out of an unattractive wood, you are doing your customers and your business a disservice. Even if you have a very limited amount of knowledge of how valet podiums work, we have people standing by to help you find the perfect one.
We’re prepared to bring the best out of your establishment - no matter what
We are constantly receiving emails, asking us if we can provide valet podiums with paneling that matches their building’s exterior. The answer is yes, we are ready for custom orders of any kind. In fact, building custom orders is a lot of fun for us, as we get the opportunity to see some excellent podium designs.
We might just have the finishes you are looking for already though. We offer wood, acrylic, walnut, mahogany, veneer, oak and dark cherry as options for the surface of podium panels. If natural wood finishes don’t fit your building’s exterior, we also offer colors like black, white, red, blue and everything in between.
That being said, if none of those choices fit you still, custom orders are our specialty and we are ready to work with you to create the perfect valet podium for your business.
Of course, colors and finishing options are only part of the story. We also ensure our customers that our valet podiums are built from solid, quality materials. Our most popular choices are anti-scratch metal, galvanized steel, stainless steel, light coated steel or full hardwood.
All valet podiums are expertly welded together, making them perfectly portable. The combination of heavy-duty materials and strongly welded joints, will ensure that your podium does not ever succumb to deterioration or warping.

Valet podiums have also gotten highly advanced in the past few years
We’ve been talking a lot about how a beautiful valet podium can make a great impression on people. While that is definitely true, there have been a lot of recent advancements of podium technology and a variety of features that one might never expect from simply looking at one.
Depending on your needs, we can add on an almost unlimited amount of extras to your podium to benefit your customers and employees. Some of these things are obvious, while others you never would have known you needed until you receive a podium that has them included and serves your needs adequately. One of our favorite things is when a customer rolls up, and one of our advanced features makes them say, “Wow! I never knew a valet podium could do that!”
For example, things like a hook or double hooks on the interior can be great for hanging things that need to be stored temporarily. You could even go for a hook that attaches with a magnet to improve portability of your temporary storage spaces, without sacrificing anything in terms of design.
For more traditional storage solutions, we can customize just about any arrangement of cabinets, shelves, side-shelves and doors. A magnetic cabinet is a great way to create ample storage space that closes up quickly and easily.
For podiums that will be placed in an uncovered area, a custom umbrella is a great way to keep your employees dry in the rain, and we also specialize in custom, weather-proof signs to show off your branding. For security purposes, you may want to install some type of CCTV or hidden cam within your podium, which is certainly an option as well.
If you feel that your podium will be moved around a lot, we recommend going for a model with wheels that includes lockable casters as it allows you to move the podium around in a way that is easy, but will keep it stable when it is stationary.
Another increasingly popular trend in valet podiums, is the inclusion of keyboards, also known as a keybox, which can hold all of your customer’s keys in a smart. simple and well marked fashion. With the average car being valet parked being quite expensive, those two minutes spent searching for the keys can really get the owner’s heart pumping. Thankfully, as a result of the keybox, there should never be a need to struggle to identify a key’s location again.
Finally, and one of our favorite advancements in podium technology are the apps that are available not to enhance the experience. There is an app for iOS which we can highly recommend, which allows you to do many things, including providing remote access to your podium online, complete with automatic notifications. It’s seriously cool!
A lifetime guarantee you can trust
At this point, the only question you’re probably asking yourself, besides “When will my beautiful new podium arrive?” is about what type of guarantee we offer. Just like we stated above, our number one concern is serving your needs, and the best way we can do that is with a guarantee that is worth more than the paper it is written on.
That is why we offer a full lifetime guarantee on all of our products and their accessories. We stand behind the products we make, because we are a part of the production process from beginning to end. That being said, if anything at all goes wrong with your podium as a result of a defect in workmanship, we will replace the broken part, or the entire podium if need be.
This lifetime guarantee also extends to all included accessories, like key boxes, boards, signs and lights.
We truly do want your experience shopping with us to be a positive one, and we don’t want that feeling to stop after the sale has been made. If there is ever a problem with your valet podium, we are always here to help.
