About Us


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.

As Les puts it it's not about "him".  He reminds his staff that promising the client is one thing,  but if we don't deilver on those promises, then it's all just words.....  The fact is, that The AutoValet is made up of a team of over 60 non smoking adult professionals with years of hospitality, logistics, and exceptional customer service experience.  With a core management team of 7 team leaders, Les has surrounded himself with the very best in this business.  These leaders have developed The AutoValet's best practices and reputation and do so with each event we serve.

And about promises.... ours is  to provide a service that is  beyond your expectations and without equal, period.

We believe we're only as good as the last event we served.
