The time has come to pull your caravan out of storage and prepare for the upcoming holiday season. Of course, summer may still be some time away, but getting your caravan ready isn’t a one-day job. There are several important things that you will need to check before deciding your outfit is safe and ready to go.

However, it's not only your caravan that will need a once-over - your car will also need to be checked. If it’s not in the best condition, it might be an idea to consider an upgrade. If you are looking at towing cars and used cars, Sandy is an ideal place to start due to its variety and central location. However, before you get started and do anything else, first things first - you need to blow the dust away from your caravan.

Take it Out of Storage

First of all, you will need to pull your caravan out of storage in order to check it over and give it a thorough clean. It should have remained safe and in good condition whilst in storage but it’s always best to check just in case.

Moving the caravan out of storage can sometimes be difficult when it has been sitting in the same place for months, so be mindful of your surroundings and check the tires before moving to ensure they are roadworthy.

Check it Over

Your caravan may not have been sat in storage for all that long, but nevertheless, it will still need to be checked over. Leaving your caravan stationary for even just a few months can cause issues - it’s far better to fix them now than leave it to the day before you are due to go away on holiday!

Checking it over now will not only give you more time to fix any problems, but it will also give you the peace of mind that your caravan is ready for the holidays.

Give it a Clean

While your caravan is in storage it will collect dust and maybe even a few cobwebs. Before you go away, you will want it to be clean, tidy, and ready to be lived in once again. However, it’s not just the outside that will need to be cleaned - the inside is likely to have gathered dust too.

Getting your caravan out of storage early will allow you to give it a much-needed deep clean. Don’t forget to clean the fridge and wipe down the bathroom area!

Check Your Car

It’s not only your caravan that will need to be checked before you embark on any adventures. Your car will also need to be checked over and cleaned to ensure that it can safely pull your caravan. If your car is old or struggles to pull your caravan, it might be time to consider investing in a new towing car.

If you are on a budget, why not look at used cars in Sandy to find the right vehicle for you? From standard towing vehicles to larger family cars, there are plenty of options enabling you to easily find the perfect car to suit your needs.

Doing all of this now is far better than leaving it too late and finding that you can’t use your car or caravan the day before you are due to start your holiday. Prepare now and save yourself time in the long-term!
