    Storage.

    Hi mike.
    We use a place just outside of Nantwich. Cassoa gold registered. £250 for the year. That's for a 7.5mtr motorhome. The name of it is Cockshades based at Shavington. If you go to the Cassoa site, there all listed.
    Good luck. Bill

    i looked into putting my motorhome into a gold standard secure site a few miles away from my house a while ago and was quoted about £400 a year . the weird thing was that even though the site itself was like fort knox it was {as far as my insurance company was concerned}situated in a higher crime rated postcode than my own home . therefore my premium would have to go up £150 pa compared to keeping it on my drive behind locked gates !!! regards garry

    Your query encouraged me to make enquiries about storage in NI.I spoke to the dealer from whom we bought earlier this year :£50 per quarter on secure premises.I have to check with my insurer whether there would be any additional premium but it sounds like good value to me.

    If you can fit it on your drive why pay for storage ?
    Mines at home where I can keep my eye on it ,saves any worry about what might be happening !

    Mike lives near me and believe me I sat up half the night worrying. I had bricks thrown at it, on the roof near the solar panel .... scratches ... it was costing me a fortune to have it seen to. Jealous neighbours are the worst vandals anyone can have.:Sad:

    Such people are w&nkers,if anyone did that to me I'd find out who it was and make them pay!
    A good reason to use storage though,:thumb:

    Cassoa Gold outdoor storage at Don Amott Leisureworld. Around £350 a year. I had ours at home for a few years and our shared driveway plus the steep angle (overhang hits on the road) and the fact that I really wasn't keen that all the neighbours and locals knew when we were away, meant it had little to no use for years.......:Eeek: So moved to storage now and aim to start using it much more, soon.

    I'll probably get shot down in flames for this, but my RMB (when I get it in a few weeks) will go into storage 30 minutes drive from where we live, in a heated and fully insured undercover compound.

    The cost is £25/week, but I won't have to worry about frost, emptying water tanks or damp when not being used. And they put the batteries on trickle charge whilst there. And run the engine regularly if not used. And because it'll be fully insured by the storage company whilst there, there's a potential saving there. Well, maybe.

    I've looked around a lot and just can't reconcile the lower cost of anywhere else compared to what this storage location offers.

    And I hope / like to think my RMB is worth it.

    I suppose time will tell if it's a good decision.

    Oh yes, don't have space on the drive. We own four cars and can't bear to part with any of them to make room. :Doh:

    compound in Rochester kent about £400 per year, if you keep it at home, everybody knows when you are on holiday and your home is empty, very interesting to burgulars

    Mines in a cassoa gold site, only about £200 per year and means I can now get in my garage:BigGrin:however it is also less obvious as people have said when you are away. However the drawback for me is the collecting/leaving as I don't have another driver, took her back to storage unit yesterday and it took three hours and involved a train a taxi and a 2 mile walk!
