Is delivering ice cream a risky business? While probably not the most dangerous occupation of all time, there are various things you will need insurance cover for – and the most obvious one is your vehicle.
As an ice cream van driver you’ll be looking for the right level of cover all year round, not just necessarily at the season peak in the summer. You’ll work long hours looking to maximise your exposure in prime locations at parks, festivals and the like. If you’re looking to start out you’ll need to be over 18 and have a clean criminal record. A decent driving record is necessary as kids will be swarming your truck even when it’s in motion! You’ll also need the right level of permission to operate in a local council area.
Whether you’re a self employed driver or part of a franchise, Bollington can help. You’ll realise quickly where the hot routes are for sales. Kids and their parents are your main market but of late we’ve witnessed a growth in the market at festivals.
Bollington has been insuring vehicles involved with refrigerated stock in the catering trade for years, so we know that it’s not just a question of giving you comprehensive, third party fire and theft or third party only cover for your vehicle.
We can offer goods in transit cover, and offer public liability (with limits in excess of £5m available to satisfy the requirements of Local Environmental Health departments and councils), together with employers’ liability, too.
We make purchasing your ice cream van insurance easy, finding out exactly what your business does to give you all the insurance you need at a price to fit your budget. If you have your own business premises, we can also insure your buildings, equipment and stock, too.
