As we all look forward to an imminent end to domestic travel restrictions due to coronavirus, you may be thinking about a much-needed break and returning to your static caravan after lockdown. This quick guide is here to help remind you of the things you need to consider when opening up again.
Fire prevention in your static caravan may not top of your list when you’re relaxing on holiday or a weekend break. However, fire can spread quickly and be devastating so it is good to know you have done all you can to minimise the risk of fire and to ensure your safety should the worst occur.
You may be able to do many of the maintenance jobs yourself, but some of the larger ones, such as roof repairs, windows, gas or electrical work will need specialist contractors. Here’s a checklist to help you find the right maintenance contractor to provide a good service.
As staycation holidays become more and more popular you may be buying your first holiday home, leisure home or static caravan.
