Motorhome winter storage and security advice

ff05359b-a936-45d0-bb3a-5303e7fd0fd5

Motorhome insurance provider Comfort Insurance, has reported an increased number of motorhome thefts or attempted thefts over winter.

Ben Cue, Strategical Development Manager, says: "As the winter weather is upon us… owners are understandably keeping their vehicles in storage, which can be seen as an opportunity for thieves."

Comfort say that motorhome or campervan storage can often be an issue over the winter months.
  • For properties that have driveways, property deeds may state that larger motorhomes may not actually be able to use them
  • For those with smaller campervans, its recommended owners check with their local authority first - there may be legislation in place as some people consider them unsightly
Ben says: "Motorhomes are expensive so companies want to know that owners are doing their utmost to prevent theft, most companies will require a wheel clamp and hitch lock as a minimum requirement but it's always best to seek advice if you are not sure."

Another option for those who don't have space is renting covered local storage.
  • Check what security devices the storage has - such as on-site security guard and CCTV
  • Sspeak with the insurer beforehand, as it can be very costly, especially if your insurer does not cover this type of storage
