Mobile Servicing & Repairs for Caravans & Motor Caravans in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire and Warwickshire
Are you looking for a habitation check on your motor caravan? Cara-Medics will arrange for a professional, qualified, and fully insured mobile engineer, to arrive at your house, caravan site, storage compound, or place of work. Quite simply - We come to you! So you don't have the inconvenience of taking your motor caravan back to the dealer or servicing workshop.....
.....Saving you that all important -time and money.
     Why The Need For Annual Checks?
  • All responsible motor caravanners know how important it is to have their van' serviced annually.
  • Internal habitation area equipment such as gas cookers, heaters and fridges all need regular safety checks.
  • Damp and water ingress can take control very quickly - regular damp meter checks can identify this, sooner, rather than later.
  • Electrical installations – 230v AC and 12v DC – these also require regular inspection.
  • Please note: Many insurance companies now require habitation checks to be carried out annually.
 Important note:
When booking one of the below services, please make us aware of any known problems or repairs required with your motorhome?
Otherwise we cannot factor in extra time to carry out the additional work.

Comprehensive Paperwork
To ensure that you have a complete record of the service or repair, your Cara-Medics service engineer will issue you a detailed service check list and invoice, which will indicate the following information:
  • The date of the service or repair.
  • The name, address and phone number of Cara-Medics.
  • Your name, address and phone number.
  • Your motor caravan make, model, year and registration number.
  • An itemised list of parts fitted, labour and any specialist costs.
Damp, and the effects of Water Ingress.
damp diagram
Although the diagram above shows a picture of a caravan, its purpose is to indicate the possible areas where water ingress can also penetrate a motor caravan. And, if left untreated, this is undoubtedly the biggest single killer of the habitation area of your motor caravan! Once damp starts to take hold, it will systematically rot the ceiling, walls, floor and soft furnishings. Please be aware!
What can be done?
Cara-Medics always carries out a full damp check with all habitation servicing as standard, a service that many other companies will charge extra for. And, If spotted early enough, we recommend a part or complete overseal. This will help prevent further water ingress occuring.
Pricing for our oversealing service is subject to sight, and the outcome of a comprehensive damp check.
