Our History

Our History

Welcome to Diamond Parking and Associate Companies, which includes Diamond Parking Services LLC, Boat World Marina LLC, United Parking, Parking Services and West & Wheeler LLC.

Diamond Parking is the oldest parking company worldwide. Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, Josef Diamond established Diamond in 1922. Today, Diamond Parking is a multi-national corporation managing and operating parking facilities in both the Western United States and Western Canada covering more than 1,800 diverse locations. From our first employee in 1922 to the attendant who cheerfully greets our parking customer every morning, our people know the value of outstanding customer service. We understand that our interactions will reflect directly upon the experience and impression left with our tenants, guests and parking visitors.

Throughout more than 90 years of continuous operation, we have always measured the quality of our service by listening to our customers, landlords and property managers. As a result our management philosophy has remained unchanged – put good people in the right positions and they will get the job done right.

Looking ahead, we celebrate our past and welcome a new future of innovation and excellence. We understand that the shift to geo-targeting, mobile marketing and online reputation management becomes a strategic imperative to increase revenues, build market share and maintain brand loyalty.
