    How Much Do You Charge to Rent Your Delorean?

    I know this has been discussed in the past. In Houston we frequently get requests for Deloreans for corporate events, school events etc. I recently received a request for a Delorean for a two day corporate event. The car will not be driven. What have you charged for events such as that and have you asked them to provide some kind of insurance protection?

    Typically the event coordinator provides insurance and transportation. If it is just a static display I get $500 per day. I try to get invited and if there is any video I ask for a copy. If you have to get your own insurance it is around $100 per day. For charities I do it for free. They should feed you if you attend. If the event insures you, ask for a Certificate of Insurance with you as a "Named Insured" in advance. Get paid on arrival.

    Also they should name the event after you in your honor, provide a throne for you to sit and some type of crown and a velvet tunic. Take no less than two animal sacrifices and, at least one virgin shall be given to thou for thy pleasure during said event.

    I don't understand parts of this.
    Don't you have insurance on your car?
    And you can get some sort of fee to park it somewhere for show?
    This all seems sort of crazy to me. Would you do the same with a 57 Chevy?
    I can see different if you are going to let strangers drive it.

    Typically if you rent your car out for hire your ordinary insurance won't cover you. Especially if you have classic or collector insurance.

    But if you do not rent it out but are simply putting it on display for no profit or income does your insurance cover it?
    Would I need extra insurance to go to a car show in the park?

    Best to check with your insurance company on what is covered and what is not in your policy if the documentation is unclear.

    Yes one can collect a fee for showing their car. They are asking for a specific car for a company theme. It's common to collect a fee. There's insurance on the car.

    This is the best advice. Generally speaking, your regular insurance doesn't cover anything you do with your car when you get paid for using it. You can also check with your insurance broker. Typically any professional event will have already gotten insurance for the event, getting covered under is easy but you do have to ask for it. You do not want to be responsible for anyone hurting themselves like walking into an open door and hurting their head. How about scratches from rivets in jeans or someone sitting on your hood and denting it? When the car is not under your control, care, and custody you do not want to be responsible. Their insurance will cover you to and from the event also.
