Services

Vintage Food Trucks is your one stop shop for your mobile catering business. We find and hand pick unique vintage vehicles that will suite your requirements. Our extensive restoration process will transform a piece of rust into a polished diamond, which will, last but not least, be fitted with the top of the line kitchen facility. Read below for more details of our project cycle.

The Search

Within our UK premises we store over 40 vehicles at any given day from American step vans, American airstream trailers, American school buses, American pick ups, British Bedford vans and Land Rovers, Italian Piaggio Ape, French Citroen HY vans in all sizes and forms, French Citroen 2cv, French Renault Estafette, French Peugeot J7, VW combi vans and vintage motorcycles. No need to look online or get lost looking around the country, we have it all under one roof.

The Restoration

This is our business signature. The rusty old van that no one wanted will go through our extensive restoration process and be given a second life. It is the most important part of the future mobile business, as you cannot operate a successful kitchen in a deteriorating structure. We believe that the devil is in the details and restoring vintage vehicles is a job for specialists. We have a team of the very best who will meet the challenge of any project.

The Interior

Having worked our own food trucks we understand life on the inside of the truck. We have been in the extreme pressured situations with queues of hungry customers. So every truck we build we draw upon our own experience to give you the best work flow to manage the practicality, functionality and workability. This is one of the most valuable services we can give you as the best catering equipment brands will not make the best food trucks.

Delivering the dream

Although we do not undertake transportation we will assist you in finding the right transportation mode and company. With our extensive network we can suggest different transport agencies that we have worked with over the years, which are familiar with the product and procedure of this transportation to ensure you benefit from the best possible rates.

Why Choose a Vintage Food Truck?

The popularity and prevalence of these vintage rolling restaurants have been increasing at a rapid pace in the past couple of years.

2. Build audience
3. Have a unique point of sale

Create attention and perception – You could have the best product and service on the market but if your customer judges the packaging before trying the product, you will not stand the competition of others with a complete concept. A quality vintage truck that looks the money invested will attract both attention and positive perception.

2

Build audience – With vintage food trucks, sometimes their personalities are their selling point. Being able to draw customers in, forming relationships and getting repeat business is a turnkey event. Not many other industries benefit from direct interaction with their audience but with this mobile unit you can, so make the most of it to create your success.

3

Have a unique point of sale – The food industry is fiercely competitive and by choosing a vintage truck you create a unique point of sale. You plan your business carefully in terms of product and service but do not forget the packaging of your new business. It is what will make the concept complete.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any food trucks for sale?

We often have catering vans in stock but due to the bespoke nature of our work we prefer to build to order.

How do I commission/ order a van?

Please ring/email or book an appointment to visit Vintage Food Trucks to discuss your requirements. Once your build specification has been agreed, we will require a 50% deposit to allocate a van and reserve a build slot in our very busy work schedule.

How long will my Food Truck take to build?

This process will take approximately 3 months once your deposit has been placed.

Do I come up with the van spec and design?

You are welcome to choose your own colour scheme and specifications based on previous builds, as professional custom food trucks builders we use our expertise and experience to create your perfect food truck.

What does the price of your vans include?

Can I supply the van?

We have a large stock of very well-sourced Citroen Hvans and Classic car donor vehicles so you do not need to supply the van, however you are welcome to provide your own van if you wish, this may help if you are an international customer and have a registered van already.

Could I save money if I supply the van?

The bulk of the cost of one of our bespoke vans comes from the parts and labour as our vans are ground up rebuilds so the money you save will be minimal.

Do I have to visit you to commission a van?

Although we are happy for you to visit us, it is not necessary. The ordering process can be dealt with via email and/or telephone for your convenience.

What do Vintage Food Trucks do during a rebuild?

The van will undergo a complete ground up restoration including overhaul of engine and transmission.

Do Vintage Food Trucks carry out any work on vans other than Hvans and 2cv models between 1950-1981?

Servicing work is very basic and most garage shops can carry out work on our vans. Parts are readily available from us or specialist parts suppliers.

Are Vintage Food Trucks performance-enhanced?

Our vans offer a standard performance although they are a lot better than in their original form. We can also carry out performance modifications by introducing a modern diesel engine transplant with modern disk brakes and power steering at an extra cost so please ask us if this is something you are interested in.

Can I see how you are getting on with my van during the rebuild?

If requested, We can send you photos of your van’s progress.

Are Vintage Food Trucks road legal in the United Kingdom?

Our vans are built to European road legal standards. They are all supplied with appropriate original registration documentation and a MOT clear certificate.

Are Vintage Food Trucks street legal in any country other than the UK?

We can’t be held responsible for the road legal requirements of other countries due to logistics and language barriers. We so far have supplied vans as far as Brazil.“Special country requirements approvals are the responsibility of the purchaser!”please ask if we have supplied your countries before going to deep into it.
