Vallie

On-Demand Valet Parking App

‘Vallie’ is London’s first on-demand valet parking app to reduce people’s worry about finding a parking lot in London. In office hours it’s really an added mental stress whether you will be able to find a place for parking or not.

Early Story

Vallie’s Co-founders Nash Islam and Robin Doble had come up with the idea of valet parking in London to ease the daily tension of the general mass. Though valet parking is a very common practice in the USA, still valet isn’t a widely practiced parking in the UK. And with Vallie, the founders are hoping to make the idea common. So, here’s how a valet parking will work in ‘Vallie’. A person (valet) will always be there, to pick up the Client’s car after they call for the service. Then s/he’ll park it and return it right back to them as claimed.

Market Research

The founders did a market research before Vallie happened. They found that the average motorist in the UK wastes 106 days on their life looking for parking spaces, and that parking in Europe generates EUR 45 billion in revenue every year. On that very statistics, they came up with the idea of Vallie for which now people can drop off their cars anywhere in the small area of the City of London, otherwise known as the Square Mile, then hand over their keys to a pre-checked Vallie driver and can relax about their car’s parking!
