Services you can present on Band-Vans.net

On Band-Vans.net, you can present tour related services like vehicles and gear rentals, drivers, sound engineers, tour managers, and merchandising companies.

×  Tour Van
Also known as Splitter Van, Splitter Tour Bus, or Splitter Bus, these are specially converted vehicles for bands on tour. A partition usually separates the passenger seats from the storage space for the equipment in the back. They usually have tinted windows and can contain beds.

×  Sleeper Bus
Full-sized coaches known as Sleeper Coaches, Nightliners, or Entertainer Coaches used to transport bands and crew. They usually have bunk beds, luxurious equipment and tinted windows.

×  Small Van
Vans used for transporting bands, their luggage, and gear. However, they’re not specially converted like splitter vans.

×  Crew
Drivers, sound and light engineers, tour managers, roadies, stagehands, merch sellers etc.

Services that print artist logos and artworks on t-shirts, badges, stickers, caps, hoodies etc. in large quantities.

Multiple categories

It’s possible to choose more than one category for your business, if you provide the services yourselves. Please don’t select a category if your partner(s) provide the service. For example, only select the category “backline”, if you own a backline which you rent.

Multiple locations

It’s possible to choose more than one location for your business, provided that you have official rental stations in these areas. This does not apply to areas/locations that you deliver to – you must have an official station present.

Important! Please only select features as additional services if you offer the service yourself. For example, you may select the feature “tour service available”, if you accompany the artists on tour yourself or if you directly employ drivers, tour managers or other crew members. Please, don’t select a feature if your partners provide the service. There’s a good chance that your partners who provide the service are also on Band-Vans.net.

With the Premium Plan you can add pictures to your business entry. Make sure that you have small file sizes (72 dpi and ca. 600 pixels wide x 400 pixels high), otherwise they will not load properly. Please don’t upload more than 3 pictures.

You can additionally choose a featured image that highlights your entry in the search results and draws the attention of the users to your service.

6.  Your new listing will not appear in the search results until the information has been verified by Band-Vans.net. Once it is is approved you will receive an email.

ATTENTION! After adding your business (also with the Premium Plan), you still have to claim it! The contact form will only show on claimed business entries.

After your registration you will have access to your own user dashboard, which gives you an overview of your listings, invoices and ad campaigns. You can change your password and add your user details under “My Profile”, edit your listings, change price plans and highlight your business entry with ads.

If you would like to book the Premium Plan or adverts, please fill in all your details under “My Profile” as the same details will appear on your invoices.
