Do coffee vans have lower insurance premiums than hot food vans?

Coffee vans may have lower insurance premiums than hot food vans. This is because coffee vans have fewer liabilities associated with them than hot food vans.

Coffee vans typically do not need to maintain a high temperature for food or manage food safety regulations and often requires less specialised equipment and produce fewer by-products, making them less of a liability risk for insurers.

This reduces the risk of accidents or problems that could lead to a claim, therefore potentially making the insurance cheaper. Policy premiums are often based on a number of factors and tends to be on a case-by-case basis.

Therefore, the premium will depend on the business and specific requirements, to find out more information please call us on 01926454907 to speak to one of our coffee van insurance UK specialists or receive an online quote.

What licence do I need for a coffee van?

When operating a coffee van, it’s important to ensure you have all the necessary licences and insurance in place to protect yourself and your customers.

Depending on the type of coffee van you’re running and the area you’re operating in, you may need a licence from your local council and a food safety licence.

As well as this, you should consider having the appropriate insurance in place, which may include coffee van insurance. This may cover you in the event of any accidents, damage or theft.

It is important to check with your local council to make sure you’re following all the necessary regulations and obtain the relevant licences for your coffee van.

Frequently Asked Questions

While the make, model, weight, and engine size of your van will affect the cost of your insurance, particularly because those characteristics also affect your van’s insurance group, your coffee van insurance provider will examine additional risk factors as well.

For example, the age, mileage, and location of your coffee van can all affect your premium, as can the location of the vehicle overnight – such as is it being parked in a garage, on a private driveway, or on the roadside. Factors relating to the coffee van’s driver will be considered, such as the driver’s age, location, driving record, and No Claims Discount.
