As a valet company, you don’t have a traditional store to present to your customers like most brick and mortar businesses. For most businesses a store offers a physical presence that helps them establish their brand identity and a gives them place to rally around.
When we design our valet podiums, we like to imagine them as small store fronts for valet companies. We want them to help you create a presence that draws customers in, inspires trust, and establishes your brand.
Creating a Presence
When customers arrive to leave their cars, it’s essential that your valet service have a clear, physical presence where customers can leave their vehicles. This both eliminates confusion and inspires trust. Different types of podiums create different types of presences.
A more full-featured podium, like our Deluxe Valet Podium, is wider and features a stainless steel counter top that creates a bigger, more established presence.
Our Presidential Valet Podium comes with a high pressure laminate mahogany wood finish and steel accents that creates a timeless look more appropriate for classic venues.
In some cases, you just need the basics that can be taken anywhere. That’s where our Compact Valet Podium comes in. It has all the fundamentals that you need in a podium and fits in your car.
Drawing Them In
Using a podium as opposed to a key box or no equipment at all also tends to create a stronger home base for your team and a clear point of contact with your customers.
When customers arrive at the venue, a podium should help you clearly communicates to them what they need to do and inspire the trust in them to leave their car.
Having a podium also gives your team a central point to rally around. It needs to be something you and your team can count on to establish the presence your company needs and offers the comfort and security that your clients demand.
Establishing a Brand
For most businesses, their store front is how they establish their brand identity. People come to associate that business with their physical location and the characteristics that it displays. The same is true of a valet podium for valet companies.
Whether you choose to use custom signage, a custom podium or kiosk to differentiate yourself or just the unique and professional way you handle customers, your service leaves an impression of both your company and the venue you’re representing.
Just as traditional business rely on their physical store to serve them reliably and consistently, valet companies rely on their valet podiums. A valet podium must be dependable. That means it stands up to the test of time and the day to day abuse that a valet operation often endures.
We’ve gone through more than a few iterations on our products and consistently work to make sure they are the highest performing podiums on the market. We realize you have more important things to worry about than your valet podium and we appreciate your feedback in our quest to make the most reliable valet podiums on the market.
