Technology & Safety
Two behind-the-scenes areas that truly differentiate chauffeured transportation companies are their investment in and commitment to technology and safety. Whether you are looking for a solid business partner to manage your ground transportation needs both locally and worldwide or simply a trusted professional to service your wedding, vacation airport service or special event, look at everything that a company like Overland Chauffeured Services offers its customers. You will never regret looking beyond empty promises, misrepresentations and too-good-to-be true pricing.

Overland Limousine was one of the early adopters of in-vehicle camera systems DriveCam & Rosco Video Systems that are mounted behind the rear view mirror of a vehicle to monitor and record activities triggered by G-force sensitivity such as collisions, sudden braking, harsh acceleration and sharp cornering. Even though our employee chauffeurs are diligently screened and thoroughly trained we have found these recording systems to be excellent reinforcement of safe driving practices, indispensable training tools and priceless back up in the event of a collision.
Overland is the only chauffeur service company in Kansas City with a Smith System Defensive Driving Training Program. Overland has a certified Smith System trainer on staff. Even the owner and key management have completed this program. Overland is committed to protecting the safety of its clients, staff and the general public.
$10,000,000 Fleet Liability coverage is provided by an A.M. Best “A rated” carrier, the highest coverage in the Kansas City market. Certificates of insurance are provided to corporate accounts on request. Overland is the only chauffeured service company in Kansas City who is a member of an insurance “captive” program, designated only for the most safety-conscious operators with low claims history and significant financial stability.
Pre-screening, criminal background checks, ongoing training, random drug testing and DOT compliance are performed as our commitment to your safety and peace of mind. Many companies hire chauffeurs as “independent contractors”, often times simply to avoid paying employment taxes and benefits. Don’t take chances with companies that take short cuts at your expense.
