Do I need a licence to trade?
You only require a licence if you intend to trade on council land or council property. This is relatively straight forward, most local councils should issue you a hawkers or street trading licence upon application and are very inexpensive. However, you do not need a license or council permission if you intend to trade on private property, such as markets, car boot sales, forecourts, fetes, fairs etc. If you would like some more advice on this matter, please feel free to contact us anytime. Remember, your choice of location is the key to your success.
Where can I trade?
Listed below are just a few venues worth considering when trading: Beaches, Parks, Shopping Centres, Cafés, Restaurants, Fetes, Car Boot Sales, Markets, Fairs, Schools, Garden Centres, Carnivals, Steam Rally, Concerts, Town Centres, Weddings, Pub Gardens, Birthdays, Airports, Train Stations, Private Hire or Any Indoor or Outdoor Event….
Do I need hand-washing facilities when selling Ice Cream?
Officially you do not need hand-washing facilities when selling pre-packed Ice Cream or Lollys as you will not be touching the food that will be consumed by your customers. However, if you intend to sell soft scoop Ice Cream, you will require a Hand Wash System. We can supply this for you.
Should I consider insurance?
Absolutely, we would always recommend a minimum of Public Liability Insurance and insuring the Tricycle is worth considering. There are many insurance companies around but a number of our clients have successfully used Southwater Insurance Ltd on 01403 785995.
When will I receive my order?
This depends what time of year you make your purchase. It always gets busier prior to the summer season but we will do our utmost to make your deadline. Usually we have a turnaround of between 10 to 14 working days but please call us to discuss your timescale.
