When you go out to enjoy yourself at a restaurant, the last thing on your mind is whether your car is safe or not in the hands of the valet. Most of us toss our keys to the valet and that is it. We never give a second thought to the disasters that might befall our cars in the care of this stranger.However, valet companies are aware of all this and that is why most are keen to avoid lawsuits that might come as a result of valet negligence and so much more.
An operator, who longs for his business to flourish for longer than just a weekend, ensures that he has a policy that has been designed to cover this kind of thing. Most operators follow the specific rules. Nevertheless, there are a few that decide to fly under the radar and end up ruining a good industry by creating a bad name for it. A valet or parking policy covers general liability, garage keepers’ legal liability and worker’s compensation.
