When a caravan is not being used most owners will keep them at a caravan storage site. It would be very wise to ensure that the site you store them at is secure and this website therefore recommends you use a site that has been accredited by CaSSOA – the Caravan Storage Site Owners’ Association.
CaSSOA (Caravan Storage Site Owners’ Association) represents caravan storage site owners’ across the UK and work towards minimising caravan theft by promoting the highest levels of security.
There are over 400 CaSSOA accredited caravan storage sites across the UK, which have been independently assessed by an experienced surveyor for security features, access and amenities to make sure they provide superior levels of protection from theft.
There are three levels of CaSSOA accredited storage: Bronze, Silver or Gold. Accreditation is based on a number of features including CCTV, access control, perimeter fencing and alarm systems.
Bronze rated facilities have good basic fencing and security systems to deter thieves while the highest Gold rating is only given to compounds with the most rigorous standards in their facilities and processes.
Because CaSSOA is a recognised membership body providing security accreditations, many insurance companies offer policy discounts for vehicles stored on secure CaSSOA sites.
There are CaSSOA accredited storage sites nationwide. Visit http://www.cassoa.co.uk/find-a-cassoa-site/ to find your nearest site.
