Preparing your static caravan for delivery

Before your choosen static caravan or lodge leaves the showground it will undergo a series of checks and tests by our maintenance team to ensure its working as expected and safe for transportation.

Our maintenance team will test the connections here for gas and water, ensuring they are working and fully functional before leaving the showground so you can be re-assured when your unit arrives it will work as expected. We recommend you connect your gas connection using a certified gas engineer as this is not something we can certify or guarantee.

Our team will ensure all moving parts are secured prior to transport to prevent any damage in transport. From glass shelving, doors, fridge units and more.

Will my static caravan fit?

Have you seen a lodge or caravan, but unsure if it will fit? Our team of caravan experts can carry out a ‘site assessment’ for you. Which includes a visit to the site where you would like to site the unit. along the way they will access the accessibility and clearence for the units journey from the showground to your location. Ensuring the unit will fit along roads, crossing etc before you purchase the unit.

Often by using rigid trucks, the static caravans will clear certain concerns like bushes, walls and gates so this is also something to consider and will be checked by our team. Other transportation techniques and low loaders etc are used if height restrictions come into play.

To arrange a ‘site assessment’ call our team today.

Siting your static caravan

Once your static caravan has been delivered, the next phase is ‘siting’. If we have delivered your unit to a holiday park then it may be that the holiday parks siting team are required to site, plumb and level your new unit. It might be worth checking this with the holiday park before delivery.

Otherwise, our team can also provide a siting service, quotes are provided for each purchase. Our delivery team will ensure your unit arrives safely and is placed on the concrete base or location you may have. The siting element will then ensure your unit is level (reducing the risk of sticking doors, unlevel surfaces and even chassis bends.) meaning it is a very important element to be completed by experts. Siting quotations are provided seperatly to delivery and purchase price. Please ask for more information.
