Here are couple of things we’d like to make our customers aware of in today’s food truck and trailer industry.

 

Almost 98% of other food truck/trailer manufacturer don’t make customers aware nor carry the following information which is essential and important as a consumer to assure themselves these companies have.  

Please make sure that you request from these companies the following:

 

·         Make sure they carry the appropriate liability insurance to perform this type of work of fabrication. This is to cover your investment in the event of any issue. 

 

·         Make sure they are Licensed through DMV (information is available free online)

 

·         Most importantly make sure they are licensed and insured to install gas lines. (this information is also available online with the pertaining State)

 

This is very important and very critical not just for your safety but for those around the truck/trailer as gas leaks is life threatening and dangerous.

 

 

We hope that these small tips assist you with your decision on who will be building your food truck/trailer.
