APC was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! Your staff was professional, pleasant beyond words and best part is they worked so well with the transportation company. My lead guy said they even had cones lined up so the shuttles had a separate lane when dropping guests off. Now that's what I call team work!

Thank you again for everything! All the prep and hard work certainly paid off!

Have a wonderful day:)

Warmest & best regards,

We hired Advanced Parking Concepts for an important private event. It was a pleasure from the very first call I made to Maritza and continued throughout the entire event. Everyone at APC was helpful, informed and courteous. The Valet Attendants were polite and professional. It was raining hard, but all the guests arrived dry thanks to the valets and the APC umbrellas.

Thank you,

To Whom It May Concern:

It is my pleasure to write about the services provided by Advanced Parking Concepts, LLC (APC). As Director of Security & Transportation at Holy Name Medical Center, I have had the opportunity to work closely with the APC parking staff.

Their valet and shuttle service began at our facility in 2013. The on-site parking and shuttle staff oversees hundreds of vehicles on a daily basis. APC manages a seamless service and, in fact, their on-site Location Manager and staff are exceptional. The interaction of the APC staff with our patients and visitors has been both compassionate and efficient. Countless compliments have been received which further highlight their professionalism.

APC has a well-earned reputation for extraordinary service and their employees assigned here reflect that in their daily demeanor and appearance. Each day APC staff goes “beyond the call” to accommodate our clientele. Importantly, the office and field staff of Advanced Parking Concepts are extremely responsive to any need or concern.

Without hesitation, I recommend Advanced Parking Concepts to any location in need of high end parking and shuttle expertise. Please feel free to contact me for any additional information.

Dear Ellis,

Thanks to you and your team for once again contributing to the success of the annual Hackensack University Medical Center Gala. Great Performances and Advanced Parking Concepts have worked together on this complex event for over (10) years and without fail APC provides our guests with warm and top notch service. Each year we host this event at a different venue (for example Whitney Museum, Yankee Stadium, Plaza Hotel) and there is always some hurdle to overcome with regard to the valet parking. And each year APC rises to the occasion precisely and graciously. Their team of managers and valets are eager, willing and personable, which is important as often the valets are the first to greet guests at an event. APC is thorough, reliable, efficient and timely and I am delighted to recommend them without reservation.

I have handled all aspects of P&L insurance for Ellis Dumont since 1992. Ellis is meticulous about the entire APC operation, which he has also instilled within his employees. There is a team environment at APC where employees take pride in their customer service approach. Hence, there is a low turnover rate, keeping experienced personnel in the field. They work within operational guidelines custom designed to fit the unique exposures of each client at each location. In addition, his loss control programs eclipse all insurance requirements.

Hi Ellis,

I just wanted to reach out to tell you how amazing your team was in ensuring that our annual Discovery Gala was a huge success. I was amazed at how seamless the event went and the entire valet process. Bisi and his team were sensational, and I was shocked at how quickly your team moved our guests into the gala and back to their cars, and on their way home with no wait at all.

All the best,

I am writing in reference of the concierge services provided by Mr. Ellis Dumont and his company Advanced Parking Concepts (APC) to my property The Park View at 320. The APC concierge division and I have had a long cohesive relationship. The employees of APC are intelligent, extremely industrious, and very motivated individuals. They always prove to be reliable, trustworthy, and punctual on a day in and day out basis. I cannot say enough good things about Ellis and his staff at APC. They maintain an air of class and professionalism at all times. I was taught at an early age to keep good positive people around me at all times and that is why I have stuck with APC throughout the years. Your company will be rewarded immensely by having APC represent your property.

You did a wonderful job, and I am so grateful for your professionalism. Thanks for making my wedding day go so smoothly.

I just had to drop you a quick note about my experience last evening. I was just a guest at a Wall Street event last night. Your staff was fantastic. Everyone was pleasant, helpful and very skilled at what they do. Your coordinator was running the show, and again, his calm, pleasant, helpful attitude was a pleasure. I also had the pleasure of speaking with JoJo when he brought my car around and he was a complete polite gentleman. I will remember this event next time I have a party to schedule.

Thank you,

Dear Martiza,

Thank you and your company for a job well done on New Year’s Eve! The gentlemen that were here taking care of parking and getting everyone’s cars at the end of the evening did a wonderful job! They made sure that everything ran smoothly, helping our gests in and out of doors and to the elevator with ease! They were super prompt and gracious. I am glad that I kept your company’s card that I saved from a pervious party years ago!!!

Happy 2013 to you and all the employees that helped to make our party a BIG success!

Many Thanks,

Please accept this as a formal letter of recommendation relative to Advanced Parking Concepts. As Property Manager of Claridge House II Condominium Association, a twelve (12) story, 336 unit, high rise building, I work closely with APC on a daily basis. It is also worth noting that APC has been serving our community as its Valet for over a quarter of a century, without incident or interruption.

The on site staff of Advanced Parking Concepts managers of 500 resident cars as well as all guests’ vehicles, on a full-time, twenty four (24) hour a day schedule. The individuals employed are kind, courteous, and polite. The managerial and corporate staff is likewise professional, and mutual respect exists between client and service provider.

Ellis Dumont, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of APC, is similarly a learned processional and fully understands, not only providing a valuable service to his company’s customers, but also how to deal with individuals on a personal level. It is also my understanding and belief that Mr. Dumont is very active, and maintains a leadership position, in numerous local and national Valet parking groups and organizations.

In addition to providing Valet parking services, APC was instrumental in the Condominium Association recently implementing an intricate access control system. CH II made a sizable capital investment in a sophisticated parking and gate system designed by APC, which includes revenue controls, key tracking monitoring, and the like.

In summary, our Association has enjoyed a longstanding professional relationship with Advanced Parking Concepts, and it is respectfully submitted that your organization or institution would similarly benefit from partnering with APC. Thank you.

APC has a well-earned reputation for exceptional service and their employees assigned here reflect that in their daily demeanor and uniform. Additionally, the office and field staff of APC are extremely responsive to any need or concern.

It is my pleasure to recommend Advanced Parking Concepts to any location in need of high end parking expertise. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

As you know, CHII returned to normal yesterday afternoon. A BIG thank you to you and your folks. Your leaders here and the valets stood tall during this emergency. I know they all had their own personal issues, but they put our customers first- the real hallmark of a service business. Y our personal presence was also much appreciated, both by us and your employees. When a world starts to crumble, regardless how small, you quickly get to know who you can count on to help shoulder the load. We are most fortunate to have APC as our Valet Service. Hope all is well with you and yours- our family is all safe and managing.

All the best,

Dear Ellis,

Thank you. Words cannot describe what Ellis Dumont has done to enhance my high-profile events. The integrity, professionalism and reliability of his service specialists have made all of my events extremely successful! At the beginning of the first Queen Latifah event, you were up against all odds. As a result of your diligent and technical abilities, it enabled me to have one of my most unique & successful events despite the inclement weather. Your implementation of every phase previously discussed was executed with perfection. While producing such high-profile events, it really can take one through a significant amount of stress. With your focus to detail being impeccable, and your dedication to service always job #1, my normal level of stress was almost nonexistent. Ellis, I thank you and your team for the many fabulous & stress-free events through the years.

Kind regards,

Hi Ellis,

We just wanted to tell you what a great job you did, as always, on the parking for last week’s Preview Party for the New Jersey Show house. All went well with both the busses and the VIP parking… You made sure that all went smoothly from beginning to end.

Many thanks for being such a great collaborator, and for giving us the comfort that under your direction, all will go impeccably.

Kind regards,

Dear Ellis,

Thank you for the key role you played in the success of ... Medical Center’s 50th Anniversary Gala. With more than 500 tickets sold, the event grossed over $470,000.

Staging an event of that magnitude is not an easy task. Ours required the skills of an army of specialists, each and every one an artist. Thank you for your expertise, your advice and your incredibly hard work. I appreciate your support.

Your efforts really showed. Our guests enjoyed a perfect experience and have been raving about it ever since. I wish you could have heard all of the positive comments and read all of the notes and e-mails I’ve received!

So again, please accept my personal thanks, and those of the entire …. Medical Center Family.

I just wanted to say that you and your crew did a magnificent job at last Saturday’s Hampton Designer Show house Gala. I know it wasn’t an easy assignment and with a few last minute glitches thrown at you by the “lady” next door, but you took it all in stride, and handled it superbly. We could not have asked for better, and I thank you for your cool and flexibility throughout- you are the best!

Warm Regards,

July 2007


You deserve a formal letter for a job well done- but I wanted to get this off to you faster than I could a letter.

It was a great relief to have the all-important job of managing the cars and guests at the Preview Gala handled so well. You heard the other valet stories we have lived through (just barely) and knew the pressure we were all under.

Thank you for the time and attention you gave the Show house valet service to make it go so smoothly.

Dear Ellis,

The family is so thrilled with the outcome of their daughters wedding Saturday night. They have received many phone calls stating it was the best wedding many guests had ever been to.

Thanks for the Herculean job in the July heat. Your efforts made Dara and David have a night that was nearly flawless.

At the end of the night Dara stated, “I am so happy, I have never been more pleased or more happy. Please say thank you to all involved.”

It was a pleasure working with each of you. You are a terrific team, one that I would be pleased to work with on any event.

Dear Ellis,

I just wanted to take the time to let you know that your staff did a fabulous job at our wedding on June 17, 2006 at the Branford House Mansion in Groton, CT. I was pleased with the thoroughness of the company evaluating the site prior to giving a quote and the service on the date of the event. From the time the staff arrived to when they left, they were professional, courteous, responsive and fun. Many people complemented them on their attention and service. Please let the group know that we appreciated their wonderful service.
