Mobile Catering Trailer Insurance Features

Protecting your vehicle, fixtures and fittings

As as a mobile caterer, you will require a specialist mobile catering van insurance policy. This specialist catering trailer insurance will not only cover your business use when travelling to different catering locations, but will also provide cover for your catering vehicle and permanent fixtures and fittings, meaning your equipment is fully covered too. Our specialist catering policies include full fire cover, which is particularly important if you have any hot food or electrical appliances on board.

Optional covers to protect against income loss

Being a mobile caterer, losing income and clients may pose a serious threat to the sustainability of your business. We offer a range of optional covers to either prevent or mitigate this risk. These optional covers for mobile catering van insurance include: legal expenses cover and the supply of a replacement catering vehicle - allowing you to continue trading in the event of damages caused by an non-fault incident. You can also protect your business by choosing one of our additional covers, including: business equipment; business interruption; loss of stock and money; frozen foods cover; and catering legal expenses.

Mobile catering liability insurance

Our mobile catering policy covers you for damages and potentially expensive legal costs resulting from injury, disease or accidental damage. We offer public, product and employers' liability insurance for up to £10 million each, allowing you to cater for the largest of events - such as music festivals - which comes with complimentary cover for loss of stock and money.

Protecting your future

We understand your catering vehicles are treasured possessions, and often investments on which your income is entrusted. For all the alterations and additions you’ve made, we’ll assess your requirements and look to find you the most suitable cover. This means that, as your business grows, you make changes, buy new vehicles or take on staff, your policy will adapt to suit your needs as you go along. Discuss them with one of our experts who can help you understand the risks and how to stay protected.
