Why move a static caravan?

There are various different reasons the owner of a static caravan may want to relocate their unit, for example:

  1. A better pitch has become available on the same holiday park, so you seek to move your static caravan a matter of metres or to a different area of the park.
  2. You may just wish to move to a new park closer to your main home or in a different scenic location.
  3. If the static caravan is not being used or let out, you may want to store it somewhere safe like a caravan storage site for example.

The site you are currently on, or the park you are moving to, may have details of companies who can do this for you.
