Caravan Site Storage from Asgard

Caravan Site Storage from Asgard

Hi - Thanks for the information. As an seasoned caravanner, with my own mobile home - I have invested in a secure storage unit to go outside my caravan, and I store all my gas bottles, furniture and other expensive equipment in there when not in use. I just wanted to know if this will help reduce my caravan insurance?

Thanks


You really need to speak with your insurance company direct. They would be better placed to advise you with your questions.

Do I have to inform my car insurance company that I intend to tow a caravan? And do I also need to tell them that I am fitting a towbar? Many thanks for your help!



You should always inform your insurance company that you intend to use your car to tow a caravan. Some companies have different rulings on this matter and they are not informed it might invalidate your insurance. With regard to adding a towbar, you have therefore modified you vehicle and they must be informed of this.

I am considering leaving my touring caravan on Vilanova Park camping site Spain. A very security minded site. I intend to live in the van for approx 11 months of each year. Could you please advise of any company that might insure the van ? Regards John Hannant


For this, the best thing for you to do is to phone around. Explain to them exactly what you are doing and what sort of cover you want. Just remember that most insurance companies require security devices fitted to caravans before they will consider offering cover for it and the more devices you have fitted the better.

Insurance claim

Our caravan was severely damaged in the floods in wales last weekend . I met up with a loss adjuster who inspected it wrote down the details and said he would then pass it to the insurance . I bought it from a dealer last year and after looking through the paperwork, I don't have a cris document does anyone know if this will affect the claim ?



The first thing I would do, would be to contact the dealer that you bought it from. They will have a record of the caravan that they sold to you. Once you have the registration details, you can then contact CriS and they should be able to send you a replacement document for a small fee.

We are using our touring caravan as our main residence - constantly touring - and are trying to find suitable insurance - Has anyone got any ideas where I could get this?


It is just a matter of shopping around to find the best deal. Search the internet for Caravan Insurers and then contact them. Do remember to tell them of any security devices that you have etc as this will help to bring the insurance down. Do get as many quotes as possible and then choose the one that most fits your needs.

Do you know if it is possible to get caravan insurance for just 6 months, ie May to October inclusive? Many thanks for your help with this.


This is a question you need to ask your insurance company. Most Insurance companies will be accomodating because they want your business. Will your caravan be safe though for the 6 months when it is not covered?

Caravan insurance

Caravan insurance also covers theft and damage arising from 'acts of God', not just third party liability and damage whilst travelling. Therefore, if you store your caravan during the winter if wouldn't be covered if it was stolen or damaged whilst on a storage site unless such events are specifically covered by the site's own insurance (which often isn't the case).
