What are the benefits of a CaSSOA site?
CaSSOA sites are known for their superior levels of security, and are statistically proven to keep your caravan safer than if it were stored on your driveway. In addition, because of this higher level of security, you may be eligible for a discount on your caravan insurance if you store on a CaSSOA site.

How much does caravan storage cost?
The site fees will be influenced by the quality of the site, its geographical location, and the economics of the area. On average, a year’s storage for a single axle caravan will be around £350.00*.
Undercover storage will usually generate a higher fee, and twin axle caravans are usually larger and therefore can also attract a higher fee.
*Representative costs based on sample data taken from Bronze, Silver & Gold CaSSOA storage facilities across the UK. Price is based on average yearly cost for the storage of a single axle caravan. Prices will vary from site to site depending on location and security level awarded.
When can I access my caravan?
Access arrangements will vary from site to site. Some caravan storage sites will open 9am – 5pm for example, with longer opening times during the summer months. Some sites may require you to make an appointment to collect your caravan, and will bring your tourer out from its storage plot into a holding area ready for you. Please contact individual sites for more information.
Can you store my static caravan?
Generally, CaSSOA sites store caravans and motorhomes. However, some may have space available for larger vehicles such as static caravans. Please contact sites directly.
How much will it cost to store my caravan?
Site fees will vary across the country, but on average, a year’s storage for a single axle caravan will be around £350.00*. Undercover storage, and storage for larger vehicles will usually cost more.
What is the recommended distance between caravans whilst in storage?
CaSSOA recommends that the distance between caravans (tow bar to tow bar) is 3.5 meters. However, this may vary, especially in indoor storage. Whilst this spacing distance is suggested, it is not a mandatory requirement for CaSSOA accreditation.
Do I need to have insurance for my caravan whilst it is in storage?
It is highly recommended that your caravan is covered by insurance whilst in storage. Usually, the site will have Public Liability Insurance to cover things like fire and flooding, but this might not extend to accidental damage or theft.
