Minimising the risk of loss/damage to privately-owned holiday caravans/lodges and hire fleet
Many of you will have taken steps to close your doors to your customers for the foreseeable future due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
At the same time, most of you will have re-connected your private caravan/lodge owners to utility supplies. You may have also connected up any hire fleet units that you operate.
We have no way of knowing when private owners may be able to return to their holiday caravans/lodges; nor when parks will be able to welcome guests back into their hire fleet accommodation.
In the meantime, any unoccupied unit which is connected to utility supplies is at risk of loss or damage that may go unnoticed for some time. For example, if a water pipe bursts, significant water damage could occur before the leak is detected.
Protect your fleet and help your private owners by:
- Turning off the water mains, or reducing water pressure
- Draining down holiday caravans/lodges where possible
- Turning off/disconnecting gas supplies
- Isolating the electricity supply on the ELCB to all holiday caravans/lodges.
We know that this is a tough and uncertain situation for park owners. We want to help you to look after your park businesses and your customers as best we can.
If you have any problems or are unsure about how to proceed, please contact your local Compass Account Executive, or the Compass office. The whole team is working hard to support you as best we can through extraordinary times.
