Whatever your reasons for wanting to sell your static, the chances are that the money you save will be a real benefit. Of course, when you sell, you’ll receive a lump sum payment for the total value of your caravan, but this one-off payment isn’t the only financial benefit you can expect.
The costs of maintaining a static caravan soon add up, so when they’re taken out of the equation you could find you’ve got more money to play with than you expected!
First up, there’s your pitch fees. How much you’re paying will depend on your holiday park and the location of your pitch, but you could be looking at anywhere between £3,000 and £8,000 per year. Losing those fees could save you up to £650 per month.
The pitch fees are the biggest cost, but there’s plenty more to account for. Consider, for example, your gas, electric and utility bills. These costs accrue even when you’re not using your caravan, so you could easily be paying over £400 per year.
Insurance is next. Like with any insurance, your premiums will depend on the value of the caravan, the location and the insurer, so only you know how much this costs you each month. Average costs range between £250 and £350 per year – more expenditure that you can stop when you sell.
If you’ve still been getting use out of your caravan, then you’ll already be spending more on things like gas and electricity, but there’s another cost to consider – travel. How long does it take you to get to and from your static? How much does it cost in petrol?
Once you’ve seen how all the costs add up, it’s easy to work out how much better off you’ll be financially once you sell your caravan. Of course, the savings don’t start until the static is sold, so a quick and easy sale with I Buy Caravans is the best way to start seeing the benefits fast.
