Pre Purchase Inspection

Check your new caravan or motorhome with a pre purchase inspection

Need a hand buying your next caravan or motorhome? Worried about missing work that a van needs or if it’s fit for sale? A pre purchase inspection will be your second opinion!

A Pre Purchase Inspection is a service that will provide you with a report on the condition of the caravan or the habitation section of a motorhome that you are considering buying.

So if you’re interested in buying a caravan but don’t know what to look for to make sure it’s a safe purchase this is the service for you!

So often I hear customers start a conversation with “I’ve just bought a caravan and I think there might be ……..” This often leads to a visit from an engineer to find out there is damp problem of some degree that could well be there reason it was being sold. Check out the Damp Repairs page for photos of the kind of problem we find.
