All responsible caravanners know how important it is to have their tourer serviced annually.
Touring caravans are road vehicles with moving parts, wheels chassis and brakes, all of which need to be checked at least one a year.In addition, internal habitation area equipment such as gas cookers, heaters and fridges all need regular safety checks.
Electrical installations – mains and battery – require regular servicing and inspection too.
Most manufacturers’ warranties only remain valid if you have an annual service and you will want to protect your valuable investment.
When it comes to having work done, you will want to know that your property has been serviced by trained and experienced professionals on well equipped premises. The Approved Workshop scheme is managed by The Camping and Caravanning Club, The Caravan Club and the National Caravan Council Limited.
To be accepted on the scheme, all workshops must pass an annual inspection by a team of independent assessors and must comply with the scheme’s rigorous standards for facilities and workmanship.
You can find your nearest member of the Approved Workshop scheme by contacting the National Caravan Council Limited or The Caravan Club. Full website access and telephone contact details for all three organizations are listed on the back cover.
Alternatively, full lists of member workshops are available on the Workshop Approved website.

If they are part of an exchange scheme, you will have a chance to inspect them before they are returned.
Approved Workshops are responsible for the quality and standard of their work, of any subcontracted work and of any parts supplied. They will guarantee all repairs for a minimum of six months and take all reasonable steps to protect the validity of the unexpired warranties.
Every workshop in the scheme has demonstrated a positive approach to customer complaints and has in place a clear and simple customer complaints procedure.
There will always be a member of staff on hand with authority to deal with routine concerns. More serious complaints will always be investigated thoroughly and dealt with promptly. If you have a serious dispute with the workshop, the scheme management operates a conciliation procedure to help resolve disputes.
