The purchase price of your static caravan is the book price plus all of the added extras that holiday parks and dealers add on. These can include, but aren’t limited to:
These add-ons can sometimes average around £6k on top of the book value of your caravan, before the holiday park’s profits are added on. It’s not uncommon for holiday parks to make around £10k profit on the sale of your static caravan.
The book price is the true value of your caravan on its own, regardless of location, site fees, or any other factors. This price won’t change because of these external factors, but it will change as the caravan ages and starts to depreciate in value.
Although it can vary considerably, on average, static caravans depreciate between £1k - £2k per year for the first 10 years, after which the rate of depreciation slows down.
It’s important to note that this book price does not account for the total cost of purchasing your static caravan from a holiday park or dealer - there are many other factors that affect your purchase price.
There are a number of things you could have done to your static caravan that will affect its overall valuation.
You will need to let us know about these factors or anything else you think that might be relevant when we call you to discuss your valuation, so that we can give you a more accurate bracket for your offer.
You’re under no obligation to sell your caravan to us once we’ve quoted you, and although we make every effort to be fair and honour the price that we offer you, please be aware that due to depreciation, your offer is not indefinite. If you look to sell your caravan again in the future, it will need to be revalued to give an accurate indication of the caravan’s true value, so that we can give you a fair price.
