Platinum Parking is all about garage management and parking consultation since starting in Dallas in 2000 with a single location. We now operate over 300 facilities in the United States and Canada. Our growth is a direct result of the close attention that we pay to each of the facilities that we manage. This attention to detail translates into improved operations and maximum financial performance at our facilities.
Platinum Parking is a subsidiary company of Robbins Parking Service Ltd. based in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada (Robbins). Robbins started business in 1958 and has grown to manage over 250 surface parking facilities, garages, and on-street parking operations. In 2004, Robbins acquired Platinum Parking and has found success in implementing tried and true systems and methodologies to improve and grow our company. In 2009, Platinum Parking acquired a Dallas-based valet company in order to expand our available services for our clients. In 2011, Platinum Parking acquired a Houston-based parking company, Merit Parking, in order to expand our current client base in several cities and expand our operations to new markets. 2016 expanded the Eastern Market by acquiring Georgia Valet and again in 2018 USA Parking in Cleveland Ohio.

At all of our locations, including our main offices and company headquarters, Platinum Parking staff participates in a company-wide recycling program. Recycling bins are located in each office to collect recyclable materials including paper, plastic, glass, electronics, textiles, and metals. Platinum Parking coordinates recycling programs with onsite property management, community organizations, or third-party contractors, where applicable.
Platinum Parking with Robbins Parking Service
Platinum Parking’s parent company, Robbins Parking, was founded in 1958 with one lot. The business was built not as much a physical entity, as a service business where value and integrity reigned supreme. Robbins established a centralized parking management system that is able to bring proven systems of operations and efficiency to every parking lot that Robbins manages.
The company’s proven hands-on approach maximizes revenue, saves money, and delivers a superior product, not just for customers, but for property owners, managers, and businesses that surround the lot.
The core values of Robbins were passed on to a new family member with the acquisition of Platinum Parking in 2004. Through mindful, smart, deliberate growth, Platinum has embraced the attributes which made Robbins a success.
