- Fleet liability coverage
To learn more about how Overland keeps you safe, continue reading. We’ll explain how we implement and execute each safety practice.
Expertly Trained Chauffeurs
The safety of our clients, employees and the general public are always in mind, which is why we invest in ongoing training for our employees. Our chauffeurs are among the best trained and most experienced professionals in the industry. Every one of our chauffeurs are diligently screened and undergo regular, ongoing training like the Smith System Defensive Driving Training Program. In fact, Overland is the only transportation service company in Kansas City with the Smith System training program.
Another thing that sets our chauffeurs apart from other transportation service companies in Kansas City? Each and every one of our chauffeurs are employees, not 1099 contractors like most other transportation services. This means we take the time to properly invest in their training.
Our Safety Technology
We are constantly investing in the latest and best technology to better serve our clients and keep them safe. Below are just a few of the safety technology features we offer:
- GPS monitoring
- Address mapping & validation
- Real-time FAA flight tracking & validation
- Sophisticated, multi-integrated software system
- DriveCam & Rosco Video Systems
All of the technology above helps us to not only better serve our clients by arriving to their pick up and dropoff locations in a timely manner, but they also ensure client safety. Our DriveCam & Rosco Video Systems are mounted behind the rearview mirror of each vehicle to monitor and record activities like sudden braking, harsh acceleration and sharp cornering. Though we fully trust our chauffeurs and their driving, these recording systems are excellent reinforcement of safe driving practices.
Working with Local Officers & State Troopers
We’re proud to welcome and proactively work with our local officers and state troopers to assure that our company and fleet are the gold standard by performing regular DOT inspections on our entire fleet. We appreciate all that our law enforcement officers do to keep the roads, highways, and all of us as safe as possible!
Fleet Liability Coverage
Something you should never forget to ask a transportation company prior to booking their services? Forget to ask about their liability coverage. Never, by any means, hire a transportation service if they don’t carry insurance; doing so could jeopardize your safety, resulting in a serious injury or death without being covered by the company’s insurance policy.
Overland Chauffeured Services is fully insured with a $10,000,000 fleet liability coverage policy provided by an A.M. Best “A rated” carrier. We’re actually the only chauffeured service company in the Kansas City area who is a member of an insurance “captive” program, an insurance program that recognizes the most safety-conscious operators with significant financial stability and a low claims history. We’ll be happy to provide a certificate of insurance upon request!

“We rented an executive mini coach for 30 kids to be taken safely to and from their prom activities. The driver was very professional and made sure no extra kids got on the bus after the dance. The coach itself was immaculate! Pricing was very reasonable. I highly recommend this company!” – Karen P.
