Hi.

We are about to take delivery of our new (to us) 7.75m Hymer motorhome.
We live in Greenwich, so street parking is not possible, we don't have a drive.
We are looking for a all years storage place ideally near to the A2.
We regularly drive down the A2/M2 to Thanet.
So anywhere along the south side of the Thames or Medway between the Blackwall Tunnel and Margate would be considered.

We are not only thinking 'official' storage, but also private drives, yards, whatever, as long as its fairly discreet/secure.

Any suggestions ?

Willow Farm Equestrian Centre near Faversham started storage about two years ago, close to the M2 as well

Not sure if you got sorted but I have just been up to my storage Woolmans Wood Rochester, about half a mile from A2. I spoke to them this morning and they are taking people on but for just 6 month periods as it is up for redevelopment at some time in the future. May do if you are stuck.

Thanks for that one, we are going to look at the Equestrian place in Faversham first and see what we get for the money

Medway Bridge Marina is a gold standard CASSOA site. They offer monthly terms so often have vacancies come up.. I was offered one soon after registering but had already found another facility near East Malling

Problem with MBM is ( or was) you could only collect your van or bring it back during their office hours.

Which we found very limiting.

We have found that our insurers Comfort/Aviva will not cover MoHo's stored here!
The reason being that as the main business is horses and not vehicle/caravan/boat storage.

Despite CCTV, gates, perimeter fencing and several million quids worth of event vehicles being stored there, it does not count.

Thanks for that
(7 days a week, 9-5 in the summer, 10 to 4 in the winter)

Agreed, that may be an issue for us as well,
As we typically pass the place at 9pm on a Friday and back again at 9pm on a Sunday

I think you will find that access is usually limited in some way. If you get really desperate and need something urgently, there is a site at Kingswood ( kingswood caravans ) that has availability. May be worth a call.

When we first stored there you could phone the security guy after hours and he would let you in .

Then they changed it all 6 years or so ago so we left.

Been to see Woolmans Wood (thanks for the help)

Storage for 160 'vans, with a few available spaces.
£300 per 6 months
24 hr access access with a fob
Electric Gates, CCTV, Fencing, Security,
electricity, water,
Seems to tick all the boxes.

Comfort/Aviva insurance will cover the location, but they ask a load of questions first

I have been there for 13 years, I am only 5 mins down the road so well handy for me. There is an Asda with fuel just round the corner, screwfix just down the road and shortly a new Aldi the other side of the airfield. I have stayed in the van overnight if doing a really early start so that is good also.
