Rock Star Peter Klappi Used Short term Car Insurance to
Avoid Financial Ruin
UK rock music legend Peter Klappi is used to driving
about in Europe to perform. His group, The Nomads,
performs at over 140 venues in Europe each year. They
perform their greatest hits that have earned them
critical acclaim. They also perform new songs that have
earned them great reviews.
Peter Klappi's career would have ended one November
night in Oslo if he forgot to purchase the short term
car cover he remembered to buy prior to going on a tour
You see, The Nomads got into a terrible wreck one
November night in Oslo which almost cost them everything
It happened like this...
The Nomads were travelling from Oslo to Bergen along
Storgata when suddenly an overzealous driver in an
estate car came zipping across in front of them.
The driver of The Nomads' tour bus, Lars Larson, slammed
on the breaks to avoid the speeding estate car. He lost
control of the bus and ended up ditching the bus into a
nearby car park.
Thankfully, no one inside the bus was hurt. However,
poor Peter Klappi's prized bus had a broken front fender
and a crushed bonnet. Furthermore, his band's drum set
and amps were mangled in the wreck.
Peter and Lars rang the police to explain what had
happened. The police came to the car park to investigate
the accident. They noticed skid marks and several parts
of the bus's fender near Storgata. Once Lars explained
why he had to skid the bus to get away from the speeding
driver, the police determined that Lars had no choice
but to ditch the bus into the car park.
Once Peter and Lars spoke with police, Peter received a
highly detailed accident report. This report was
invaluable because it allowed Peter to work with his
local insurance agency in London.
Peter called his agency and was able to speak with a
local agent named Patti Lorgan. Ms Lorgan explained that
since Peter purchased
term comprehensive cover for his bus and his
equipment, she'd be happy to help The Nomads get the
things they needed to keep touring Scandinavia.
As a result, Peter used the provisions in his
temporary car cover policy to take his group's bus
to a reputable car garage for repairs. He also used his
policy to pay for a replacement set of drums and amps
for his band's next date in Bergen.
These provisions saved The Nomads' bacon because it
allowed them to pay for expensive bus repairs that they
couldn't immediately pay for. Moreover, the policy's
provisions also gave them the immediate resources they
needed to keep their tour going on as scheduled.
As a result, Peter Klappi was able to keep his band's
tour going as scheduled. They were able to play in front
of sold out audiences in theatres and outdoor concert
spaces across Norway to rave reviews.
Nowadays, The Nomads and Peter Klappi continue to tour
round Europe in their repaired tour bus. They still play
at over 100 venues across Europe. They even have a new
digital record out!
