The AutoValet began in 1991 through the request of a local philanthropist to provide upscale valet parking service to the Jacksonville Florida area for events where the majority of the operating funds for local and national charities are raised. These galas are held at various venues throughout the area most of which offer situations where parking is neither close by or not central to the location. The desire was to craft a service catering to these benefactors, donors and their guests. By providing an excellent experience from arrival to departure this provider needed to be beyond the "cookie-cutter" services of the common valet company.
Through providing service to these major events we are commonly referred for private dinners and parties, corporate functions, weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, and virtually any event requiring tasteful valet and other parking services.
Les Houpt has made it his personal goal to provide the finest, most attentive valet service which has been expanded to offer many other special event hospitality services which work hand in hand. We now offer parking direction, gate monitor, doorman, servers, coat check and more by request. Our greatest reward is having a guest compliment the host for choosing us.
