Advantages of Motorised Food Vans
A motorised Catering Van or Food Truck has all of the advantages of a catering trailer and a few more!
Without doubt, a Motorised Van is the best solution if you need to get around to a lot of different sites in a day or to different events around the country. They don’t require any heavy lifting and can be driven into position on your site.
Set Up Speed
Setting up with a Motorised Food van is brilliant. You drive up, park, open your hatch and start serving. It’s the quickest and easiest unit to operate from – perfect if you want more time to do other things!
Many market organisers seem to be keen on quirky motorised units, such as Citroen H Vans or refurbished converted vintage vehicles, and you might be in a good position to secure more work than those with less visually appealing units.
However, if you operate from a Transit van with a hatch in the side, the opposite could be true and you might find it hard to get work at some events.
The look of your van will be critical in your attempts to secure work.
A converted vintage van is definitely a fashion statement at the moment. This makes a statement about you and your business and can help your business in several ways:
- It may be easier to get work, as many Event Organisers want ‘cool’ traders that will draw the crowds
- You might find that more people want to buy from you
- You might be able to charge more for your product
A good investment?
Some traders are finding that converting a vintage van has worked out as a great investment, as they’ve been able to re-sell the vehicle for more than it has cost them in purchase and conversion combined. Perfect if you decide you don’t want to stay in the industry.
