If you have a food truck, there are a range of different policies you will need for coverage. As a food truck owner, you need a mix of policies, such as general liability insurance and commercial vehicle insurance. Basic forms of policies for food trucks will cost you around $2,500 per year — but this will increase when you extend your coverage options.
In addition to the two aforementioned types of coverage, you may also need workers’ compensation, business owners’ policy, and business property insurance for your food truck business.
While costs for insuring your food truck will depend on these forms of coverage, they will also be influenced by the location of the truck. Trucks parked in areas where there is high crime or in a lot as part of an ongoing fair may have higher premiums. Also, the workers’ compensation you get will be affected by your employees’ different roles and their current payroll.
Keep in mind that you will also need to insure all the equipment that is permanently attached to your truck, as well as miscellaneous materials you have inside it, as these count as part of your business property’s value.
The above policies are best for food trucks, as the risks these vehicles are typically faced with include fire, equipment breakdown, and theft. Insurance for your food trucks will keep you protected from these risks and the potential losses that may arise from them as well.
