Things You Will Need
To follow the steps listed in this article on how to get your car fixed when it's damaged by valet services.
The first step to getting your car fixed when it's damaged by valet services is to inspect your car as soon as the valet returns it to you. If you notice damage the valet did to your car a week after it happens your chances of getting restitution from valet services are slim. As soon as your car is returned to you by valet services inspect it carefully, and if you find damage you need to report it immediately.
The second step to getting your car fixed when it's damaged by valet services is to speak with the valet manager about getting the damaged fixed. If the valet manager will not give you information on how to do this then go into the restaurant(or other business using the valet) and speak with management about the accident and about their valet services. The business will not want to get a bad reputation(or lose you as a customer) because of something valet services did to your car. The management of the business will usually be very forthcoming with this information and make sure you are steered in the right direction to getting your car fixed.
The third step to getting your car fixed when it's damaged by valet services is to keep in constant contact with the valet company until your car is fixed. Valet services may not always be easy to deal with after they damage your car and have to pay for it. Every time you follow up with the valet company write down the name of the person you spoke to. This way you can ask for them by name each time you call instead of getting passed around to a bunch of different people when dealing with valet services.
