Q: Do I need any special kind of insurance to lease a VanY Tour Van?
A:YES, It is important to note that any vehicle you are driving while conducting business (including leasing of tour vans) will NOT typically be covered under your existing personal auto liability policy. As a touring for-profit business you are actually engaged in commercial use, and if there is a significant claim your personal insurance policy can and will decline coverage due to this commercial use. For this reason we STRONGLY urge all of our professional clients to secure commercial grade liability insurance. If you are a touring musician and do not currently have commercial grade insurance we have a possible solution for you refer most professional musicians and people needing non-owner insurance to an excellent broker: Keli Tomack. She works for Lockton Insurance Brokers specializing in the entertainment industry. We have worked with Keli from the first day we opened our doors, and she does a great job. If you have any more questions, or would like to get a quote for a policy, we reccommend getting in touch with her:
The 4 main things you will need are: Commercial General Liability-Hired Auto-Non owned auto, and Comp/Coll. scan0042 <—example
Q: Can the VanY Tour Van be delivered anywhere in the country?
