What Is A Certificate of Insurance?

A Certificate of Insurance (COI) is a document that proves that an insurance carrier insures your business. A DJ Certificate of Insurance lists your insurance coverages and limits. It also provides contact information for the insurance company your business is insured under. For DJs, this would be the contact information for Insurance Canopy.

Why Would DJs Need A Certificate of Insurance?

You would need a COI in the event that a vendor, event organizer, venue, or landlord asks you for proof of insurance. They would typically ask for your business’s COI before they book you for an event or right after you are booked for an event. 

You would need a DJ insurance certificate because playing without one can lead to some risks. Risks can include

  • Not booking a gig.
  • Your business being fined for property damages.
  • Your business being held liable for any injuries that happen while performing. 
  • Your business experiencing financial strain if you are liable for claims. 
  • Your business facing legal penalties if you operate without a Certificate of Insurance
