    We have only got 90 odd days to go until we take delivery of our new weapon of choice. However, what we do have is secure parking and storage near Gaydon Warwickshire. We have space for a few more, so if you need a safe place to store you MH. Give me a shout. We will charge the going rate, whatever that is.....
    Regards

    If you're intending to do this seriously then you need to look into getting CASSOA accreditation.

    For any storage site that doesn't have it insurance premium implications can be huge for potential customers.

    I store mine there and have insurance approval by post code with no conditions. Any potential would be thief would have their work cut out getting anything out of this yard in one piece

    It's not about approval. They will let you keep it anywhere, just charge you more for the privilege. Mines on a CASSOA Gold storage sight and the premium is 50% less than keeping it at home. The reduction in premium more than pays for the storage. When I was looking for a site I looked at a couple of non-CASSOA ones who had space and checked them out with the insurance company. They were happy for me to use them but the premium would have been considerably more than if I parked it on the road at home.

    Cassoa sites have all the things insurance companies like to hear about like double locked gates, patrols, CCTV and the like.

    Yes but i own the site and dont charge myself rent. The thought of an 8 meter van parked on my front lawn didnt excite me much and the insuraance people Stavely Head made no conditions or price hike. The site has three locked gates and flood lighting. So no real point in having CASSOA approval as it wouldnt actually alter anything
    Do you work for CASSOA?

    No I don't.

    I just know how insurance companies view non accredited sites. Of course if it's your own land it makes no difference whatsoever if it's just your van there but in your OP you were offering the service to other people. If you are going to be offering a storage service on a commercial basis then accreditation is something you should be aware of. They will be able to help you ensure you have the correct insurance in place if nothing else (y)

    On a commercial basis wasnt my intention, share space and help costs (its expensive having lots of space with business rates etc) was my driver. However I take your point and will enquire how much accreditation costs or at least the things that dont comply cost to put right

    If nothing else I imagine a spot of public liability insurance would be advisable. That won't cost much.

    Good to hear. It's not yours you need to worry about so much. If you take money from someone to store their van and anything happened to it you would have a problem if you weren't insured.
