Alpha Testing Our New On Demand Luxe Valet Parking Ap

Dumb and Dumber-We are smiling on our Razor Kick Scooters.
..as we are about to get run over by a Mack Truck.

This is not your everyday on-demand job; a Luxe agent is a Valet, Rideshare and Taskrabbit all in one. We change the way people park by collecting, storing and returning vehicles for customers

NYT Blog: When I describe it to you it will sound crazy, bourgeois and inefficient, and your first instinct will be to dismiss it. Don’t. Luxe works amazingly well, and as it and other similar services expand nationally — Luxe is starting up in Los Angeles this week — they could radically alter how large cities work.

Luxe is an on-demand valet parking service. When you need to drive somewhere where parking is tough, like pretty much any part of San Francisco, open up the app and tell it where you’ll be going. Then start driving. When you get to your destination, a valet will be waiting for you on the side of the road. He’s wearing a blue jacket bearing the Luxe logo, and he greets you by your name, so you know he’s legit.
Hand him your car keys. Yes, don’t worry, it’s fine. Luxe is insured for $1 million against theft and damage, and it tracks your car with GPS. So, as I said, hand him your car keys. Tell him how long you’ll need your car parked. Watch him drive away with your car. If you want, you can look at the app to see a little icon representing your car making its way to a parking lot.

That’s it. Your car has been parked.

Later on, when you need your wheels, open up the app again and hit the button to call back your car. Luxe will assign you a valet, and you’ll see the return play out right there on you phone’s screen — a valet approaching your parked car, and then the car heading to you. In about 10 minutes, your car arrives. One nice perk is that your return destination can be anywhere in Luxe’s service area, not necessarily the place where you originally parked your car. You can drive your car into the office in the morning, then have it returned to you that night after dinner in another part of town.

But here’s the best part. Luxe costs just $5 an hour, with a $15 maximum daily rate. If that doesn’t sound freakishly cheap to you, you haven’t parked in San Francisco
