Comprehensive Catering Van Insurance for Businesses

As the owner of a catering van business, you’ll be fully aware that without customers, your vehicle, equipment, stock and perhaps suppliers, your business cannot operate.  However, being in direct contact with the public comes with its own set of risks. Without the correct food van insurance, unexpected events could leave you significantly out of pocket and even leave your business unable to trade for long periods.

You will need to consider risks such as a customer suffering an injury in connection with your business, becoming ill as a result of consuming your products, your stock, equipment or vehicle being damaged by fire, accidents or being stolen, and any employees being injured whilst working for you.

It is crucial to seek independent advice to make sure you get the correct food delivery insurance to suit the way your business operates.

Alexander Swan will work together with you so that we can build a tailored, all -encompassing policy to perfectly match the size of your business and the risks it is exposed to.

Unlike dealing directly with an insurance company, Alexander Swan has access to multiple insurers and their diverse policies. This broad reach allows us to present you with a range of options, increasing the likelihood of finding the most competitive rates and comprehensive coverage.  We are with you every step of the way, from helping you choose the right insurance through to fully assisting you should you ever need to make a claim.

Do I Need Catering Van Insurance?

Food delivery and catering van businesses definitely need insurance to operate. Insuring the vehicle itself is a legal requirement, as is employer’s liability insurance if you employ any staff. There are other considerations for protecting your business should the worst happen, such as customers getting sick, being injured or their property is damaged in connection with your business.

What’s Included in Catering Van Insurance?

If you run a catering van or coffee van food delivery business, important considerations when sourcing food van insurance include the following: –

  • Employers’ Liability:  If you employ staff, employer’s liability is a legal requirement to protect against injuries caused to an employee whilst working.
  • Public and Products Liability:  This is essential to protect you against potential claims from the public in case they are injured, get sick or their property is damaged in connection with your business – whether that be a customer, supplier or a passer-by.
  • Vehicle:  Catering van businesses wouldn’t be able to operate without a vehicle, so it is important to protect against damage or theft of the vehicle itself.  If your vehicle is modified to accommodate refrigeration units or cooking equipment, then you will need specialist modified vehicle insurance to suit your needs.
  • Business Interruption:  This covers lost income if your business is unable to operate due to unexpected event.
  • Theft/damage to contents, equipment, electronics, stock
  • Legal expenses cover: to protect you against any costs of legal disputes
