Whether you serve sandwiches to festival goers or burgers to hungry drivers, food van insurance from Simply Business can cover your business risks.
A mobile food van business insurance policy will usually start with public liability insurance, which can cover you if you’re blamed for injury to a member of the public or damage to their property.
Please note that we don’t offer vehicle insurance, which covers you for road traffic accidents resulting in damage to other vehicles and injury to passengers. You need to purchase this insurance separately.Compare quotes
You should choose your cover based on your individual business needs, but these are some of the insurance types worth considering:
Public liability insurance is a popular choice for street food businesses, as it can cover compensation claims made by a member of the public for injury, or for damage to their property. For example you drop a cooking utensil from your food van and damage a car parked next to you, or you spill hot coffee over a customer as you’re passing it to them. In both cases, if you face a compensation claim, your public liability insurance could pay the cost of the compensation payment and the legal fees.
Employers’ liability insurance is a legal requirement for most businesses that employ staff. It can cover a compensation claim from an employee or ex-employee for injury or damage, for example if a member of your staff suffered a burn from a hot pan left in the sink.
