Our newly introduced services encompass two crucial aspects of Motorhome and Caravan maintenance:

Annual Motorhome Habitation Servicing:

It is advisable to schedule an annual habitation service for the "living area" of your motorhome, aligning with most manufacturers' recommendations. Our service includes a comprehensive inspection based on the NCC habitation check sheet, encompassing checks on the gas, water, electrical, and other motorhome functions. Additionally, as part of this habitation check, we offer the option to perform a thorough dampness assessment using our state-of-the-art equipment. With this choice, we will provide precise moisture readings on an NCC-approved damp check report. This can be particularly valuable, as detecting water ingress early can often lead to easier and more cost-effective repairs, saving you both time and money. Pricing for Habitation Services starts from £220 +VAT and amongst other items, we check:

Inspection 1


We use specialist equipment to check for damp ingress and identify any issues so they can be addressed before they become significant problems.

Mechanical Servicing:

Regular maintenance is essential to ensure the optimal performance and reliability of your motorhome's chassis and engine components. It is imperative to adhere to the manufacturer's recommended intervals for this maintenance as a minimum requirement. We highly recommend scheduling this service annually, ideally in conjunction with the habitation check.

As part of our commitment to your motorhome's well-being, a complimentary mechanical health check is included when you opt for an oil and filter change.

Additionally, we offer comprehensive caravan servicing, encompassing a habitation check and supplementary inspections of vital components like tires, braking systems, suspension, towing electrics, and the condition of the tow hitch.
