Who Needs Car Jockey Insurance?

Car Jockey insurance is aimed at anyone who works at a car park or parking lot, and is responsible for moving and parking customer vehicles, on or off site. Anyone typically working in close proximity to the entertainment and travel industry, offering a car parking or short term storage service where a vehicle is taken and stored off site for a short period (such as a holiday), would need car jockey insurance.
While you won’t necessarily be driving long distances, you will be driving lots of different vehicles, each with differing values and engine sizes, so it is vital you have the right cover in place for all eventualities.

This cover is a must for anyone working in any of the following occupations:
  • Car Jockeys
  • Airport Long Stay Car Parking
  • Ferry Terminal Parking
  • Restaurant Car Parking
  • Casino Car Parking
  • Hotel Car Parking
  • Wedding Car Parking
  • Full-time & Part Time Car Jockeys

Why Is It Important To Have Car Jockey Insurance?

As a car jockey you will be in and out of customer vehicles all day, every day, but just because you aren’t in any single vehicle for any length of time, it doesn’t mean you aren’t going to be involved in any accidents.
In fact, because you are constantly changing vehicles, with different speeds, spec and set ups, you’re probably more likely to be involved in an incident than if you spent all day in one car. Add this to the fact you’re likely working in tight spaces, with lots of other cars in close proximity, and the potential risk of you damaging a client’s car might be quite high, so having adequate insurance in place to cover you, is a must.

So why should you have cover?
  • It’s the Law!
  • To Cover Client Vehicles
  • To Cover Public Liability Claims
  • To Cover Your Employees
  • To Cover Single Premises
  • To Cover Multiple Premises
  • To Cover Compounds
