Regular Caravan Servicing Is Important
Just like motor vehicle servicing is vital for your car’s performance, regular servicing of caravans is vital if you want to enjoy your caravan. It is a heavy load that you are towing and without regular and appropriate servicing you not only are risking costly maintenance issues you are taking a massive risk with your and other road users safety.
Besides the safety issue, there is a danger that your warranty could be voided if you don’t keep up to speed with a regular servicing program.
We treat caravan servicing as a vital part of our business and have an area within our workshop specifically devoted to caravan servicing. This allows us to provide the best possible conditions to service your caravan to the best possible standards.
As a matter of course, your caravan should be serviced before any long trip and at regular intervals. Every ten thousand kilometres is a good measure to schedule your caravan servicing.
In the event that you’ve purchased a second hand caravan, it is best to book it in for a service before using it.
