Help and Advice

There is lots to think about when it comes to Mobile Catering, we may not be caterers ourselves but we have worked with lots of repeat customers over the years and have learned and developed our products through our customers experiences. We are a very unique type of business in that we provide our customers with a business platform and its important to us to help you as much as we can to ensure your business has the best chances of succeeding.

Starting up

Two of your first's thoughts should be;

  • What do I want to sell?
  • Where do I want to trade?

Following this you will want to make first contact with your local council and find out where you can trade, what licenses etc. you will need to trade and maybe enquire about the events you would like to trade at. The more research you do at this stage the easier it is to get going once you have invested in a unit, as you will want to be up and running as soon as possible to return your investment. Once you have done your research then it's time to think about;

  • What type of unit will i need?
  • What Equipment will I need?
  • What will suit my business?

We can help guide you to the right unit for you and your business and one that will ultimately fit your budget, whether it is new or used.

We can also help if you do not have the start-up capital required by offering finance options (subject to status – Please see finance section for more details)

When it comes to mobile catering its best to try and keep as much of your equipment to LPG (gas) where possible so as to reduce the size of generator that is needed, the bigger the generator the more room it takes up and the noisier and heavier they are. Most of our units will run off a small 2kw generator which you can lift on and off your unit easily and will run your refrigeration and lighting. You can even get LPG converted generators so you can run them off the same gas as your unit and therefore cut your fuel costs considerably, then you only have to purchase gas and it is more environmentally friendly too.
