FAQs About Food Cart Insurance

FLIP’s coverage applies to each of these areas:

  • Cyber Liability claims. An example of this is a cyber security breach resulting in your sensitive business information being compromised. Cyber Liability insurance is an additional coverage option that you can add in the application or from your user dashboard. 
  • Damage to premises rented. Claims like these could result in thousands of dollars spent on fixing the damage done to rented property. Protect your business (and wallet) by including this coverage on your policy. 
  • Tools and Equipment coverage. Also known as Inland Marine coverage, this is a great addition to your policy in the event that your business equipment is ever damaged or stolen. This is also an additional policy option that can be added in the application or from your user dashboard.
  • Trailer Endorsement. Extend your General Liability coverage to your trailer while it is detached from your vehicle and parked on premise. This coverage can be added at any time through the application or from your user dashboard.
