As a mobile caterer, you will require a specialist mobile catering van and trailer insurance policy. This will not only cover your business use when travelling to different catering locations, but it will also provide cover for your catering vehicle and permanent fixtures and fittings, meaning that your equipment is fully covered too. Our professional catering policies include full fire cover, which is particularly important if you have any hot food or electrical appliances on board.
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 extras 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 a 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.
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.
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 the most suitable cover for you. This means that, as your business grows – and you make changes, buy new vehicles, or take on more staff – your policy will adapt to suit your needs as you go along. Discuss them with one of our experts who can help you to understand the risks and how to stay protected.
When you need to make a claim, we'll guide you through the process and get your claim settled as quickly as possible.
