    This is more of a curiosity as today we have an outside parking place at a local farm. It's on a hard standing and there are around 10 tin tents and 3 other MH's.

    However we also have in our village an internal storage site for MH's. It's a new building that holds 8 standard sized MH's plus there's a huge Concorde in there. It's warm, dry and has electricity and also has protection from the local Pine Martins:Angry:

    Thing is our outside hard standing costs us £250 p/a but the internal places are around £750 p/a and I'm just wondering what the prices are like in the UK ?

    When I used internal storage I paid £30 per month, only for the time it was actually in the storage warehouse.

    It appears that the storage costs in the UK are lifted depending on your location.
    Here in the North East they are very reasonable both outside and in.
    A new secure storage area is opening at Teesside Airport at the end of this month. Entry is with secure fob and strong security as it is the airport. I have enquired and a 12 month contract for internal storage is £230, not bad. External works out at less than £200.

    When I used to have storage up until 18 months ago, I paid £250 per year inside and for a second van £150 per year. Before that it was £1 per day whilst there, outside. This is in Cheshire.

    Ours is almost £1500 a year in outside secure storage. I think it was about £800-900 at a CC site in London where we used to store it.

    The place we are in now is super secure. So much so I feel guilty taking my own van out.:Smile:

    Interesting, I'm paying £360 per annum, which looks fair enough compared to some others. It's an outside hardstanding on a farm with kennels and cattery, plus there's a guard dog on permanent sentry duty. I like the place, you can't get close without setting the dogs off.::bigsmile:

    Do all you guys using storage inform your insurance company where the vehicle is parked? and if so does it increase the insurance?

    Yes, insurance is informed. They wanted confirmation of the secuity arrangement. I don't think it's affected the cost, but I've not had a quote for storage at home to compare.:Smile:

    I pay £450 per year inside secure and alarmed barn on fairly remote and anonymous looking farm. Use of electric for hook up inside.

    Here's hoping the owner doesn't subscribe to this forum cos I feel he may be undercharging somewhat !!!!

    Insurance company visited ours at the storage site, although its only about 800m from the house. He went to check the body work of the van but did comment on the site and said it was fine, security pretty much doesn't exist here (yet) and ours is just on a country lane with nothing but wild moggies and pine martins to protect it.....

    Sounds like a bargain, stick an IP webcam up and he'll add another 500 to that cost

    Sidcup, but my van is near Orpington.

    Not sure I can recommend it for what we pay to be honest.
