“Most monuments are about granite and mortar, but parking is about people.”

As any parking facility owner knows, parking cars is more difficult than it appears to be. To operate a parking facility profitably and efficiently, it is imperative to have a team equipped with the management expertise and technical solutions to meet the needs of a particular location – this is what Monument Parking embodies.

By maintaining our belief in providing first-class service, Monument Parking has become one of the premier and most successful parking operators in the Washington Metropolitan Area. Our trademark is customizing a plan of operation that will not only impact the bottom-line of the location positively, but to uphold the reputation we have earned by offering high-quality services to our clients on a daily basis.

At Monument Parking, we take pride in extending the same level of service to each location regardless of size, locality, and clientele.

Company Information

More than 45 years ago, the President of Monument Parking realized that there was a need for parking management that did more than simply park cars. And while the rest of the parking industry has been catching up with that idea, Monument Parking has built its expertise in providing monumental service.

The company began by managing 200 parking spaces for the ITT Building in Washington, D.C. and today it handles more than 10,000 spaces daily throughout the Washington Metropolitan Area. Several of these facilities have been federal institutions and hotels, which have been successfully managed and operated on a 24-hour basis.

Although Monument Parking is managed with the operational capability and financial strength of a large organization, our desire and goal is to provide the same commitment to service and business-client relationships as a smaller company – remaining hands-on and readily available when needed.

With Monument Parking, experience, quality, and commitment add up to a monumental service.
