Caravan & Motorhome Servicing

An annual inspection and service of your caravan or motorhome is essential to ensure caravan is going to be safe and reliable. We include a full report giving clear comments on each component of your caravan rather than the informative ‘tick’ sheet that seems to be all too common.

Included in a service is a full damp report. We use the industry standard protimeter to give clear meaningful damp readings in every area of your caravan. This helps ensure that if water ingress has become an issue we can give helpful advice and in most cases set about a plan of action for you so that we can begin to repair the problem cost effectively. Remember, if water ingress is found quickly then the repair costs can be kept to a minimum.

We work to all current required safety standards and we are ACOPS registered for caravan gas (LPG), CITO LV/ELV trained in caravan electrics, and we have the National Trailer and Towing Association Advanced qualification.

Being a proud member of the Mobile Caravan Engineers Association you can be assured your caravan or motorhome is in safe hands!
