Dropped my car off at valet parking at the Marriott Rivercenter in San Antonio (no self parking due to renovation). Picked it up two days later and noticed strange sounds coming from the front axle when turning. Hopped out and took a look...front bumper was folded into tire and rubbing, hence the sounds and rubber burning smell. Valet company checked the tape and confirmed it happened when valet was parking it. Waiting on email from claims company. Body shop estimate at $2,886. How big a pain in the butt is this going to be?

Should be painless since valet company fessed up.

Bummer! I used the valet at Morton’s steakhouse a couple weekends ago, they are on the backside of the mall. I also got a couple dings in the Expedition, nothing as bad as yours though. Hope you get it worked out.

I'd still rather do without any pain.

You heard the noise before you saw the damage?

It seems that damage would be hard to miss day 1, minute 1

Should have walked around and inspected. The truck was parked in front of me and the driver door was opened for me blocking the front quarter panel. Not sure if was that way on purpose or just a coincidence.

I prefer not to valet. But sometimes I have to, like at the Harbor in Rockwall.

Valet parking did 2800 damage to my 10 day old pickup at a casino. They owned up to it and repairs went smoothly and quick. Casino even gave me 250 in chips for the inconvenience up

Guess that is why hotels charge $40 a day to valet sometimes!! They will take care of it.
