It is unfortunately a fact that the number of caravan related crimes is rapidly increasing and that stolen caravans account for a high percentage of these crimes.

Statistics show that a considerable percentage of house burglaries are directly attributable to the absence of the caravan from the driveway whilst the occupants are away for the weekend or on holiday – i.e. the burglar assumes that, 'if the caravan is missing, the house is probably empty'.

A good secure storage facility is an essential requirement for all caravan owners and, regardless of whether or not you decide to store your caravan with Fairwood Leisure Storage, the following are just some of the points that should be taken into consideration when choosing a suitable storage site.

Is it a 'purpose built' caravan storage site or just a piece of land being used for the storage of caravans ?

Does the site consist of an all 'hard-standing' surface or just 'soft ground' ?

Do you have your own dedicated pitch or do you need to look for a storage space each time that you return to the site ?

Is the site registered with CaSSOA (Caravan Storage Site Owners Association), if so, to what standard, Bronze, Silver or Gold ?
