Picture this: you’ve arrived at your destination via plane, and it’s nowhere near time to check into your Airbnb or hotel. You’re experiencing the “luggage struggle.” We recently caught up with Amanda Sheridan of Charleston BagValet who shared how her team is helping combat that problem.

Locals, share this with your friends + family. Visitors, remember Charleston BagValet the next time you travel in and out of the Holy City.

What is Charleston BagValet?
We are a first-of-its-kind on-demand concierge that allows travelers to maximize time pre/post accommodations by providing a safe and secure option to store their luggage with the added convenience of curbside pick-up + delivery.

How did this concept come about?
I founded BagValet after my experience as a rideshare driver opened my eyes to an ongoing problem that is not only inconveniencing our visitors, but also putting a burden on our local small businesses — the “luggage struggle.” I would often have groups of riders pack my car with all their belongings to go around the corner because they had checked out of their accommodations but didn’t fly out until later.
