Insurance for your ice-cream van is vital in order to legally drive on the roads and to protect you from certain unforeseen circumstances that might hinder the ability to trade, such as a breakdown or theft.
Although many other van owners could load their equipment onto another vehicle if their usual one breaks down or hasn't had its insurance renewed, ice-cream vendors' vans are specially adapted inside, which means using any other unmodified van is impossible.
It could be said that ice-cream vans work harder than most. They are driven around whilst scouting for the best areas to sell treats to both children and adults alike, meaning there may be a higher risk of van parts wearing out more quickly, which could potentially lead to a breakdown on the road.
Some vans are also likely to remain stationary for much of the year, which can also cause harm as an unused vehicle may be prone to weather-related degradation. Over-wintered vans may also be subject to vandalism and/or theft if not stored securely.
That's why we offer free breakdown cover and free legal expenses insurance with all of our business van insurance policies – to give you peace of mind in the event of an unfortunate circumstance occurring.
Plus, we offer you the possibility to opt for a convenient payment plan so that you don't have to worry about your finances. We understand that, during the colder months, you may not be able to sell as much or you may cease trading altogether, so you will have to wait for spring and summer to begin again.
