Criterion Manufacturing Solution’s newest product, eValet, provides an economical, energy-efficient, user friendly solution for the storage of vehicles. Cars are parked using robotic equipment – without any intervention from the driver. The driver pulls their vehicle into a parking area, leaves the vehicle, swipes a credit card and leaves. The car is picked up, carried onto a crane and stored until the driver needs to retrieve their car. The entire process is reversed when the driver returns for his car. This process takes approximately 1 minute.

Superior vehicle protection from other users and vehicles

Vault-like protection against auto theft and vandalism

Safety increased

Well-lit, flat entry area provides reduced accident potential

Single entry/exit location provides greater personal security for users

Parking convenience

No searching for a parking place

Park in the “best location” every time

Backing up never required – pull in, pull out

Less time parking the vehicle – pull up, swipe card and go

Less time exiting the parking garage – average vehicle returned in about 1 minute
