Frequently asked questions
There is no legal requirement for you to have insurance but you will probably find that as part of your contract with the park owner that they will require you to have it fully insured. Often they insist that you have new for old insurance and that you have £2 million or £5 million liability insurance built in. Some parks may a small charge for checking your insurance.
Some larger park owners sell you a 10 year site licence at the end of this you have no rights to your pitch and will be required to remove the caravan. There may be an option to extend the site licence. You really need to read your site licence carefully before you commit to it and if there is anything that you are not sure about ask a professional to look over the contract for you.
Market value insurance is a type of insurance policy that provides coverage based on the current market value of the insured item, rather than its original purchase price or replacement cost. This type of insurance is commonly used for items such as cars, boats, and other types of property. In the event of a claim, the insurer will pay out an amount equivalent to the market value of the item at the time of the loss. You need to read the wording of your insurance policy carefully as often the maximum that will be paid out is the value that you have insured it for which will be shown on your schedule of insurance.
With new for old cover you insure your caravan for the full replacement cost of a brand new one. This offers more comprehensive protection and peace of mind, as it ensures that the policyholder can replace their lost or damaged items with brand new ones, without having to worry about the cost but it does cost more. Static caravan insurance premiums are set on the basis of a rate per £1000 and since a new replacement will be considerably more than the depreciated value you will be paying for more thousands. May park owners insist that you buy new for old insurance so that you are in a position to have a brand new replacement. This makes sense as they want to keep the park looking nice.
The best way to find out what the cost of your insurance will be is to get a quote. You will need a few pieces of information before you do this. You'll need to know what the postcode of the park is, what the replacement value of your caravan is, either its new value for new for old insurance or its market value if you want that level of insurance coverage. You need to know what the resiting cost of it will be and decide what other things associated with your 'van you want to insure. Lastly you'll need to decide if you are going to let out your caravan for payment, if you are you need holiday letting insurance.
Your fixtures and fittings, things that came with your static caravan from the manufacturers will be covered under the insurance of the caravan included in the value of it. The things you buy to keep in it need to be insured as contents. Things that you take from your home when you go to the park for a holiday need to be covered on your home contents policy as personal possessions away from the home.
The simple answer is to ask your holiday park owner. They will know haw much it typically costs to remove a damaged caravan and get the new one in, anchored and linked up to services. We can offer to insure this for up to £10,000 you just let us know how much you want when you take out your insurance.
