Unlike companies whose vehicles are on the road daily, such as taxi businesses, organisations that only occasionally use their minibus often times can benefit from lower premiums for the simple reason that they represent a better insurance risk. Many residential care homes, day care centres, old people's homes, and hospices fall into this category.
All care homes, including those run by charities or non-profit organisations, are required by law to maintain correct levels of public liability insurance, as well as appropriate cover for the property itself, the care home staff and any supplies.
It should be noted that a minibus can be either a purpose-built vehicle or a conversion from a van. In general, most minibuses have at least nine seats including that of the driver, and a seating capacity of seventeen passengers. A minibus that has had any seats removed must legally be re-registered with the DVLA stating its correct new seating capacity. Also, its logbook will need to be amended prior to an insurance policy being granted.
Nursing homes that care for the elderly and infirmed, can have their insurance policy specially tailored to their requirements. A knowledgeable insurance broker that fully understands the nature of the nursing home profession will be able to provide appropriate care home minibus insurance cover at a cost effective premium.
