From 2006 to present Our Core business was Press Fleet Management for some of South Africa’s largest motor manufacturers. This basically involves the distribution of all latest vehicles to Motoring Journalists in KZN, to be test driven by them and in return for this, the motor manufacturer would get free review publications.
In 2010 Audi South Africa approached us to provide a Valet Service for some of their blue chip customers during the launch of the new Audi A8 in George. We would collect the clients cars from he airport, look after them, clean them and return them to the clients when they returned.
This worked very well and we saw a gap in the market to provide such a service to the general public, and so TPMS was born and became the first ever Valet Parking Company at King Shaka International Airport.
Through the years much happened and various other companies sprung up, some good and others not so good and disappeared with time. In 2015 we sold TPMS, in good faith, as we felt it became time to retire. It turned out to be one of the biggest mistakes we could have made, as it took the new owners only 3 months to ruin the company totally. This unfortunately gave valet parking in general a real bad name.
In early 2016 we were approached by numerous of our old clients to come back and provide a proper Valet Parking service again. We however did not see our way through as the long hours took its toll on us, hence we created OMS (Online Management Services) and basically became he first Online Booking Service for valet parking. This worked fairly well, but we soon found out that some of the service providers we employed and listed on our website just could not keep up a standard which we were satisfied with. One can argue that nobody can satisfy every person at all times, but there are limitations.
After nearly 1 and a half year we decided to make a change and hopefully we have through experience the right recipe to provide an online booking service and valet parking service through a trusted service provider. We are confident that us changing to Ethekwini (Durban) Parking will be a service that will become the trusted Valet Parking Service here in Durban.
