If you are searching for secure caravan storage, you may have found out about CaSSOA – the Caravan Storage Site Owners’ Association. Why should you look for a CaSSOA site?
For most people, owning a caravan or motorhome is quite an investment, and their caravans and campers are precious to them. CaSSOA was formed to try to ensure standards of security, safety and good practice are promoted.
Every CaSSOA site is bound by their rules, and receives a periodic audit from a qualified external auditor. He or she scores the site after looking at:
- Electronic Security
- Boundary security
- Contract standards
- Access Control
- Pest Control
- Fire Safety
- Records and Data
…and plenty more things as well! By storing at a CaSSOA site, you will likely get a discount on your caravan insurance too – caravan insurers know your caravan is safer on a CaSSOA site, and they are often happy to reward you for it!
Membership of CaSSOA costs the site in subscriptions fees and audits and requires that they maintain ever increasing standards over time, as security and safety standards improve and the bar is raised for all site. So, membership and accreditation shows a commitment to maintaining high standards from the site owner and operator.
You may save a few pounds storing at an unregistered site, but is it worth it in the long run?
