Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need vendor insurance and how will it benefit me?

What If?

  • During a strong wind, a tent lifts into the air and hits and hurts a person or damages a parked vehicle
  • During a sale, a person slips while in your area and gets hurt
  • During a sale, a person knocks your table, the table falls and a patron is hurt
  • Someone gets sick or reacts to the product you are selling at the market
  • Someone breaks a tooth on your food

Am I covered?

If you have liability insurance to cover the market, then you could be covered.  If not, you would have to pay for the damages from your own pocket.  Some claim settlements can be quite large and you could lose your savings or even your home to cover the losses.

WHAT IS THE TURNAROUND TIME FOR INSURANCE?

It depends. BCAFM requires 3 to 5 business days to review and approve vendor applications in the BCAFM Vendor Membership Program. Once approved and BCAFM has processed your $75 payment, completing an insurance policy via the Duuo website is instantaneous!

The $75 BCAFM Vendor Membership Fee is an annual fee that must be renewed each year before you are eligible for preferred group rate insurance benefits.
