Do you own a high-end hospitality establishment or operate an entertainment complex or casino? Offering valet parking is a valuable service that can attract more patrons and give your business a competitive edge. People are more likely to choose your establishment if they know they won’t have to worry about where to park. Valet parking also alleviates concerns about walking long distances in bad weather.
While offering valet parking offers many benefits, it also increases the exposure to risk. An accident involving a valet can lead to injuries and property damage. The fact that drivers are operating unfamiliar vehicles or may not always exercise caution increases the risk level for businesses. Carrying the right amount of liability insurance is essential for protecting your assets against lawsuits — if you can find a reputable insurer that’s willing to provide the coverage. XINSURANCE is here to help.
At XINSURANCE, we specialize in insurance solutions for risks that other insurance providers tend to avoid. We’re your source for all-in-one liability insurance plans that meet the unique protection needs of businesses that offer valet parking, as well as valet parking contractors and service providers. If you’re having a difficult time finding insurance, or if your carrier has canceled or elected not to renew your policy, we’re ready to step in and fill the void. You’ll have true peace of mind knowing that you can protect yourself and your assets if an incident occurs.
Our valet parking insurance is suitable for:
Whether you’re a business that hires its own valets or a specialist valet parking service that’s contracted by other businesses, you will be well aware of the risks associated with driving another person’s car.
While we’re certain you take the time to train your staff adequately to drive vehicles safely, accidents and incidents do happen. Sometimes the car might get dinged or scratched, particularly in tight parking spots or small parking lots. There’s always the possibility that the actions of another driver may cause an accident or collision while the car is in the hands of the valet. Although thankfully rare, the worst-case scenario is that a valet-driven car causes bodily harm to a pedestrian.
With more and more people willing to use valet parking services, the rate of associated crimes also rises. Thefts from parked vehicles and the vandalism associated with thieves breaking into the vehicle are on the increase. Valet parked cars can be an easy target, despite security measures.
Valet business insurance offers liability protection if a valet driver causes injuries or property damage. It can also cover damages sustained by the vehicle while in the valet service’s care. Specific coverages include:
XINSURANCE can provide a liability policy with limits of up to $10 million or as much as $20 million via our reinsurance partners. Please note that we do not offer workers’ compensation insurance for valet company employees.
The following scenarios indicate when valet company insurance should provide coverage:
You’re the owner of an upscale restaurant that employs a valet staff. After dining at your establishment, a patron notices a large scratch on his vehicle and states that it happened in your parking lot. You can file a claim under garage keeper’s liability in this situation.
An attendant who works for your valet company strikes a pedestrian while driving a customer’s car. Your general liability insurance will cover the medical expenses and pay for a settlement or judgment resulting from a successful lawsuit filed by the injured party.
A thief steals a vehicle while it is under the care of your valet service. Your garage keeper’s liability insurance will cover the loss.
Valet parking insurance can offer the following coverage:
