You Can Still Buy or Sell a Caravan with Caravan Depot
You can still buy or sell a caravan with Caravan Depot during the current lockdown. We are able to continue trading whilst still complying with government guidelines. We explain how below. However, please read this guidance because you need to make some decisions about your own needs and actions.
Why Are Caravan Depot Still Able to Trade?
We are not on the list of specific businesses that are being asked to suspend trading. Our brokers work from home and carry out work which they cannot do at home. This means they can travel to list and sell caravans.
During lockdown we are happy to accept a deposit on the caravan you wish to buy. This will hold the caravan for you until you are able to collect it.
Information About Caravans on Our Website
Of course, to help you make the decision about whether a caravan is right for you, our brokers will provide huge amounts of information to help you make that choice. This includes lots of additional images and they will speak to you over the phone to provide a full and impartial description.
Click and Collect
If you urgently require your caravan and need to collect it immediately, the government guidelines say the following: "Non-essential retail can remain open for delivery to customers and click-and-collect." Our normal method of operation falls within this click and collect description. You click on a caravan on our website, receive full information, pay a deposit and then pay the balance on collection.
Do You Need to Travel?
The decision on whether you should travel during lockdown is up to you. On the one hand the guidance says a click and collect service is acceptable for non-essential retail. On the other hand the government provides quite strict guidance on travel. Please read the full guidance before making your decision here - https://www.gov.uk/guidance/national-lockdown-stay-at-home
We fully support and actively adhere to the social distancing guidelines throughout the transaction process. You can see more about the steps we take to ensure your safety here.
We hope this explains how we are able to operate and you are able to buy or sell safely under current government guidelines.
