Specialist Motorhome Caravan Servicing and High End Upgrades

Deeping St James, Lincolnshire

Advert ref: 3039TPBW

This unique and well established  business benefits from its authorised relationships and location, with many secure motorhome and caravan storage facilities within the area. It enables the business to offer the flexibility of collecting and returning the units for the owners, if needed. There are three qualified and experienced members of the team who will remain with the business, if required.
The owner oversees the day to day running of the business, but the team are knowledgeable and experienced enough to maintain the workshop side of things. The owner’s wife looks after the general admin and bookkeeping 
The business normally exhibits with E&P and VB Air (on the E&P Hydraulics and VB Air stands) at the NEC in February and October and at the East of England Caravan & Motorhome Shows. Sales are normally gained from these shows.    
Our opinion:  
This business is experiencing great growth, some of this can be associated to the current pandemic. However, the increase in the popularity of Motorhome and Caravan leisure and holidaying is projected to continue to increase.
The need for upgraded auto levelling systems, suspension that enables motorhomes to drive smoothly and luxury additions such as air con, solar panels and wifi ensures that the business continues to be the “go to” installer within the Lincs/Cambs/Leics region.
