What Is Food Trailer Insurance?

Insurance for food trailers is a series of general liability insurance coverages to protect your food trailer when it is unhooked from your vehicle and parked at an event or business location. It includes coverage for incidents that occur in, or on your food trailer. FLIP doesn’t cover the transportation of your trailer because we don’t offer commercial auto coverage. 

How Much Does Concession Trailer Insurance Cost?

Food trailer insurance, or concession trailer insurance, starts at $299 per year and requires a trailer endorsement. Monthly plans are also available starting at $25.92 per month. This includes up to $2M in general and product liability coverage. 

We know that not all businesses are the same, so not all insurance policies should be the same. At FLIP, you can tailor your food trailer policy to your business and add additional coverages and increased limits to fit your unique business needs. Additional policy options include increased liability limits, professional liability coverage, and cyber liability coverage. 

Why Do I Need General Liability Insurance For My Food Trailer? 

Without food trailer insurance, you could be faced with business-crippling expenses that could stem from just one claim. Claims are expensive. Imagine you’re at a food festival. You notice a customer lingering near your generator but it’s during the lunch rush so you think nothing of it. All of a sudden your food truck loses power and you discover that your generator has been stolen. Without insurance, you’re stuck paying thousands of dollars to replace your stolen generator. 

With insurance, this scenario and claim wouldn’t be as painful. FLIP could take care of the cost and you’re free to continue running your business.

General Liability

General liability insurance can protect your business in the event of third-party bodily injury or property damage claims. If you run power cords around your trailer and a customer trips and injures themselves on it, you could be held liable. With general liability insurance, you’re covered from those costs. 

Aggregate Limit: $2,000,000

Product Liability

As a risk of the trade, food poisoning is something you never want to happen. However, most claims –like food poisoning– can be unavoidable. Protect yourself should that claim ever occur to you with product liability insurance. 

Aggregate Limit: $2,000,000

Tools & Equipment Coverage

Also known as inland marine, tools and equipment coverage extends coverage to your valuable equipment. If you have a generator, deep fryer, or refrigerator that your business is dependent on, you should consider adding this coverage to your policy. 

If your generator or deep fryer is ever damaged by events out of your control –such as weather or theft– then you could be reimbursed or compensated for the damages. 

Aggregate Limit: $10,000

Damage To Premises Rented

Do you operate your business in several different locations? If so, this insurance is for you! Extend your insurance to the places you rent and protect yourself in case your business causes any damages. It is important to note that FLIP offers business owners free unlimited additional insureds for those who require it. 

Aggregate Limit: $300,000

Cyber Liability Insurance

If your business collects or stores information on a computer, tablet, or mobile device, then you’re vulnerable to the damages and costs of a cyber security breach. We strongly recommend this coverage option.

Aggregate Limit: $300,000
