Have you recently become the owner of a shiny new caravan? Are you a Leeds resident looking forward to leaving the humdrum of everyday life for adventures up and down the country? We don’t blame you for the excitement, as we know how exciting it can be to have the open road of possibilities ahead of you. However, given the amount of money you likely had to invest in your caravan, have given much thought to where it is going to be parked up when you are not using it?
Most people tend to think it will be fine and safe leaving it in their driveway or even in the on-road parking space in front of their property. However, statistics suggest otherwise. The main places where most caravan thefts occur are from motorway services (presumably when weary travellers are off getting refuelled with a full English etc.) and from outside their home. That is why we recommend you avail yourself in dedicated storage for caravans. Leeds has several sites offering this service. If you are concerned about the price, check out this guide. If not, continue reading.
Caravan Storage in Leeds
Leeds Caravan Storage
Considered to be one of the best caravan storage centres in Yorkshire, Leeds Caravan Storage is worth considering. It has received the Gold Award from CaSSOA, can be accessed easily from the motorway and has more than 400 pitches.
Your pride and joy will be safe on their premises as they have regular patrols, 24/7 recorded CCTV and perimeter security and a member of the security team is always on-site. The site only offers 12-hour access to the vehicles stored there and that access is only possible via one, electrically monitored gate.
Thorpe Lane Caravan Storage
Address: 83 Thorpe Lane, Leeds, LS10 4QD
Although the company has not always been in the caravanning business, it has been a family-run business since it was established in 1958 at 83 Thorpe Lane, where it has been based for all that time. Even in those early days it served the local community and evolved from being a coal sales and transportation business into a vehicle dismantler and storage business.
The company have gone to great lengths to construct a storage site that meets the industry requirements and standards. As part of their security efforts to protect your tourer, they have a key entry gate, alarms, floodlighting, automated gate system and 24/7 CCTV. Although there are several different access points to the site, these are protected and secured by CCTV, alarms and security guards around the clock.
