Storage Booked & Insurance Waters Tested

Have booked a spot on a CaSSoA site not far away in Castleford.

Not the most scenic of sites it has to be said,it's at the rear of what looks like an old chemical works but it is a hard standing and has Gold status so it will do the job.

There are plenty of vans/motorhomes there ( there must be money in this ) so if a theft occurred we would be unlucky if ours was the one that was pinched,plenty of grander looking caravans.

Three hundred pounds  for the year wasn't too bad,a local farm wanted that for just parking in a grass field with no security whatsoever.

One curious thing was that all the pitches are numbered but don't appear to run in any order,makes finding a particular number rather difficult.



I had checked out Caravan Club insurance with an on-line quote previously,but I read somewhere that a phone quote sometimes worked out cheaper for some reason.Not in my case it didn't,in fact it was more expensive at £368 a year.Nothing has come close to beating Caravan Guard at £219 for the year.Caravan Club insurance may be good but a difference of nearly £150 is not to be sniffed at,about £20per night that is a weeks holiday.

I enquired about removing the wheels over the winter and leaving the Orion on axle stands or Winter Wheels.Caravan Guard said this was OK provided I took the wheels home,Caravan Club wouldn't entertain it as the Al-Ko wheel lock wouldn't be fitted so they knocked me the discount off.

I think I know where my insurance money will probably be going.
