Food Truck Insurance in Lutz FL & Tampa FL

You rely on your food truck for more than just a means of transportation to your job—you need it to run the business, too, and that makes it vital to ensure that your truck has the coverage it needs if something goes wrong.

Food trucks are one of the most unique risks to insure because they occupy many insurance categories simultaneously, and different trucks often serve different purposes. Since food truck insurance is still new market, our agents are doubly careful when listening to what you're actually doing and looking for the policy (or set of policies) that can provide you with the best possible coverage.

In addition to covering everyone who works inside the vehicle, most companies in need of food truck insurance require some form of restaurant insurance and commercial auto insurance as well.

Restaurant Insurance as Part of a Food Truck Insurance Package

Many states consider food trucks to be a form of restaurant, which affects everything from what safety regulations they must follow to how and where they must register in order to do business. Additionally, as a mobile business, food trucks often have to contend with different restrictions in their different service areas. All of the legal aspects of owning a food truck ultimately mean that it's important to have the right insurance as a restaurant and be able to handle any claims that come up for issues like sanitation and how safe it is to move in and around the vehicle.

Commercial Auto Insurance That Protects Your Food Truck

Food trucks also need to acquire commercial auto insurance to help protect against problems like theft, fire, electrical hazards, and vehicle breakdown. Standard vehicle insurance is not sufficient when a truck is being used for commercial purposes.

As the owner of a food truck, you know just how hard it is to keep your business running. Your goal is to protect your business as much as possible while keeping your expenses manageable, and Chris Black Insurance agents keep that in mind when they work with you to find the policy that best matches your needs. Don't hesitate to ask about other options or how much insurance you actually need—you might be surprised by how much you could save.

I am Mike Wooten. I just want to tell you how happy I am working with Chris Black Insurance and Sharon. I was here today and talked to them about my homeowners and they were able to save me over $1200 a year on my homeowners insurance. I would recommend Chris and his agency to anybody.

My name is Bonnie. I have been a customer of Chris Black Insurance for about three years. Recently with the skyrocketing price of insurance, I wanted to find a better price and Chris and his staff were on top of the situation and they hooked me up with a good insurance company, Travelers, and saved me roughly $700 in the transition. So kudos to them.

I am Gordon Bogart and I live down here during the winter. I own an insurance agency in Ohio and I got involved with Chris several years ago. He does a great job and I send a lot of people to him that I know from down here. We've got a very large agency in Ohio and I wish Chris would come work for us up there.
