Parking Garage Damage

Let’s face it, NYC parking is hectic and a garage attendant can be moving up to 3,000 vehicles a day. And during all these times of parking, retrieving, juggling, shuffling, and lowering cars, some NYC parking garage damage can happen.

NYC Parking Valets don’t like damaging your vehicle any more than you like having it happen. But sometimes it does, and all garages have systems in place to handle damages.

How to Handle Parking Garage Damage

  1. Report the NYC parking garage damage immediately to the valet and Garage Manager.
  2. Take pictures — you can use the camera on your phone or keep a disposable camera in your car.
  3. Fill out the Damage Claim Form that every garage must have on site. Get the Manager’s name and the garage phone number. Some garages will not let you keep a copy of the Damage Claim Form, so keep as much information as possible: garage, date, time you parked, time you retrieved your car, anyone who can verify your complaint, and whether you spoke with anyone at the garage.
  4. Be diligent about following up with the garage.
