    Having emailed 3 sites to find out their charges .... all contacted via the Cossa site contact form... none have responded which is sad.
    OK, not got a MH yet but would like to know the costs as a guide.
    We only have a 7m drive so severely limits us on MH size so even at 7.1m we would need storage so might as well go bigger :snigger:

    Does anyone use a Cossa Gold site and if so what is the going rate?

    TIA
    Chris

    It varies a lot.

    It will be significantly cheaper where you are but in the London area it can be £700 -2000 per annum and most of them are full.

    Just under £400 here in Suffolk, and he's just doubled in size.

    Our storage site is Cassoa Gold (I think). Its £190 a year, in south Norfolk. Before we chose this site I contacted Cassoa with a question, got an answer straight away so I would try them again.

    I searched for quite a while before find our current site which cost £500 a year, the plots are so small I sometimes have a problem squeezing in to drive it out, hate to see a fire break out there.

    We recently started using a C&CC CS site where they have parking, on enquiringly I was told they charge £150 a year, and motorhomes are kept in a locked compound.

    Guess who's moving sites when the contract runs out at the end of this year..

    Hymie.

    Thats expensive but worth it for what you are getting. The storage site we used to use was cheap but was really just a farmer's field with a fence round it, I nearly always got stuck in the mud.

    If you can store it at home you might find you use it more. :)

    CASSOA acceditation may help reduce your insurance premium a bit, but it could also add to the storage cost.

    Our first site was CASSOA silver rated and on a farm but access hours were limited, it was a 50 mile round trip from home, and there was only one gate into the compound, which anyone could drive up to. The miserable sods also insisted on us paying a couple of months extra rental after we'd given notice to leave. They didn't provide us with T&Cs when we signed up with them.

    Our current site didn't seek CASSOA accreditation, but it has an automated security gate before you reach the gated MH compound, CCTV, 24/7 access and is a 12 mile round trip from home. It costs a bit less per month too. The savings we make more than offset the increased insurance premium and their contract is very clear cut. They're part of a larger storage/removal business.

    Might be worth looking at non-CASSOA sites? They're not all bad.

    Ours is a Gold site and the van is under cover with hook up etc, but its just shy of £2k a year.

    It makes me feel sick to be honest.

    Ours lives on a Gold site in Northamptonshire which costs less than £200 per year. I can remember exactly but I think it's about 170 or 180.

    @magicsurfbus depending on the value of the van some insurers only accept Cassoa sites.

    £490 a year on a COSSA "Gold" site in central Essex
    Spaces are tight. And, due to a recent issue - we'll be looking for other storage at the end of this contract term

    BL Caravans. They're in Weldon and the storage site is along the road just before you get to Upper Benefield.

    I'm pretty sure they have spaces.

    We pay about £470 for a gold site in the North Cotswolds. That's for a roomy outside pitch on hard standing on a site with with electronic gates. High fences are surrounded by farmland and the only way in goes past the farmhouse kitchen window.
