By | Luxe Chicago, Luxe San Francisco, Luxe Team | No Comments

At Luxe, we strive to make parking your vehicle both convenient and affordable. Customers like you rave about our Door-to-Door Valet service, and we’re thrilled to introduce a new addition, Luxe Garages.

Starting today, open up the Luxe app and select one of our secure garages located throughout our service area. Simply drive to the garage and a Luxe Valet will meet you at the entrance and park your vehicle. There’s no wait and the cost is even more affordable. The best part is that you can mix and match your services, so you can drop off at a garage and then have your vehicle valeted to you on its return, or vice versa!

How it works

  • Open the Luxe app, and select the garage you would like to park at. Request before you leave or simply pull up to the garage and request upon arrival.
  • Drive to the garage, hand your keys to our Valet, and you’re on your way. Enjoy all the convenience of curbside service, at a lower price with no wait!
  • When you’re ready to pick up your vehicle, just request it right before you arrive at the garage. You can also choose to have your vehicle delivered back to you for only $8—select your pick-up time and location and our Valet will return it then.

Open up the Luxe app to see our garage locations today!

By | Luxe Promotion, Luxe San Francisco | No Comments

It’s once again time for America’s busiest shopping day of the year — Black Friday! This year, we’ve partnered with Westfield San Francisco Centre to create a traditional valet stand so you can park easy, save time, and avoid the parking madness. And if you still need to do some shopping after Black Friday, we’ll be there through the end of the year!

How it works

  • Pull your car up to the valet stand on Mission Street between 4th and 5th Street (outside of Bloomingdales).
  • Simply hand our valets your keys, and head into Westfield San Francisco Centre.
  • When you’re done, pop out to the valet stand. We’ll bring your car back to you, and you’re on your way!
  • Pricing is $10 for the first hour and $5 for every additional half-hour. If you’re shopping all day, $40 is all you pay. You can pay by cash or card — your choice.

Bay Area Middle-Distance Relationships Hurt By Bad Parking

By | Luxe News, Luxe San Francisco | No Comments

Along with SSI/Instantly, we recently surveyed Bay Area residents who drive into San Francisco and found that on average, commuters travel 90 miles round trip to get to work in the city. As a result, they often have to sacrifice social activities at night with friends, colleagues and/or partners in order to get back home in a timely manner.

Unlike Long Distance Relationships (LDR), these suburbanites are often engaging in a middle-distance relationship (MDR) with city dwellers. Our survey results show that parking in the city deters them from spending time with their city-based friends, causing middle-distance relationships to suffer.

The survey revealed a few other surprising facts – that dining is important to Bay Area residents, but parking is a major hindrance:

  • 71% of Bay Area residents drive to the city to eat at a local restaurant
  • 82% of Bay Area residents would come to SF more often if there were more parking available
  • 42% of Bay Area residents spend, on average, 20 or more minutes searching for a parking spots

With 88% of Bay Area residents coming into the city for personal activities, we want to make middle distance relationships thrive again in the Bay Area. People who live in East Bay, Peninsula, Marina County, South Bay and Silicon Valley shouldn’t be deterred from visiting friends in the city just because of parking!

See below for the complete findings of our survey and don’t choose to be in an MDR and park with Luxe!
