You may be wondering why you should join CaSSOA.

As the industry benchmark for caravan and motorhome storage standards, a CaSSOA site can be seen as the preferred location for caravan and motorhome owners looking for a storage location. Show your commitment to the security standard of the caravan and motorhome storage industry – become a member of CaSSOA today!

Should you wish to become a member of CaSSOA we would initially ask you to complete the self-assessment form below in order to determine if your storage facility is suitable. Our independent surveyors will then carry out a comprehensive on-site survey in order to fully assess your storage site. Depending on the security features and other on-site facilities, a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum award will be recommended.

Accreditation is based on various security features including perimeter fencing, CCTV and entry/exit systems. Consideration is also given to the risk to the stored caravans from, fire, flood, vermin, and storm damage. We will always offer recommendations and advice to help you progress to a higher accreditation should you wish to. All CaSSOA storage facilities undergo a 5 yearly, on-site survey to ensure that they are maintaining the standards required for their accreditation.

    Please note: All accreditations are awarded using a point structured criteria, this can be discussed with the site surveyor directly and the time of your survey. In order for you to be considered for a CaSSOA accreditation all sites must have perimeter fencing encompassing the entire storage area and the entrance / exit are protected by lockable gates as a minimum level of security. All sites must conform to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. A fire risk assessment must have been carried out by a responsible person.
