Your investment in a caravan as a home away from home means it probably has an important place in your heart. You will want to take good care of it, even when you are not using it.
One way to take care of your caravan is to make sure it is safe and secure when it isn’t in use. If you live in a flat or somewhere without street parking, then you will need to have somewhere that you can put your caravan so you can have peace of mind. Even if you have a drive you will be aware that nothing indicates people on holiday (and an empty home for thieves) like a caravan missing from the drive.
Moving your ‘van to a place of safety is an important part of caravan ownership. If you live in and around Wigan, you will be pleased to know there are several different options to safely park and leave your caravan.
