How do caravan and motorhome storage facilities receive their CaSSOA accreditation?

When choosing a motorhome storage facility, there are many points that should be on your criteria checklist before you commit to leaving your motorhome in the hands of a business. You may have heard of the CaSSOA accreditation… In this article, we cover what this is, why it’s important and some pointers to look out for. 

What does CaSSOA stand for?

CaSSOA stands for the Caravan Storage Site Owners Association, it’s a bit of a mouthful, but essentially is the governing body for owners looking for secure and safe storage for their caravan or motorhome. 

Is there just one level of accreditation? 

No, CaSSOA accredits motorhome and caravan storage sites on 3 levels; bronze, silver and gold.  

How do businesses receive their accreditation?

There are very strict criteria that each site must go through before receiving their accreditation. An independent surveyor will visit the site and will award points for each element, which includes some of the following: 

  • Perimeter protection – are certain safeguards put in place around the facility to ensure the protection of the overall facility? 
  • Access control – how easy is it to access the facility? 
  • CCTV, surveillance & alarms – is a high level of surveillance in place across the site and how is this monitored? 
  • Site admin and on-site services – this may cover booking systems and the availability of people on site. 
  • Fire safety – CaSSOA will always check whether a fire risk assessment has taken place, see if there are smoke alarms fitted in indoor facilities and if they are tested/monitored regularly. 

Businesses with a higher amount of points will receive a better level (bronze, silver or gold). You can read more about CaSSOA’s point system here.

Should I consider a motorhome storage facility if they don’t hold this accreditation? 

As an accredited site, we would say you should only use a CaSSOA site… ask yourself, why haven’t they got their award? It’s likely that something will have been compromised, such as security or safety.  

Don’t forget, the accreditation only lasts 5 years, so check that it’s in-date before booking your motorhome storage. 

How will I benefit from choosing a CaSSOA accredited site?

Aside from the peace of mind knowing your motorhome is being looked after by an accredited site, you can also potentially benefit from a lower insurance premium on your motorhome, as insurance providers sometimes take into account where it’s stored. 

The storage facilities are amazing!

Really impressed with the service & customer-focused attention

I was really impressed with the service and customer-focused attention I received dealing with you both. Prompt replies to my enquiries and professional standards throughout mean that my first thoughts on needing storage will be towards Hogleaze. Also, as I mentioned when meeting you, my work involves motor homes, camper vans and the occasional ‘shed’ and I have and will continue to recommend you. I took several of your cards for this purpose!

Unfortunately, our house move failed as the buyers pulled out on Christmas Eve (nice) so I’ve put my MX5 back in our double garage but I was happy knowing it was safe and snug at yours!

Found the facility to be safe and secure

I used Hogleaze Storage for many years and found the facility to be safe and secure. My belongings stayed dry; the ambient temperature seemed just right and there was no dampness. Wooden furniture; cardboard boxes and books all survived intact. The staff are also helpful and friendly. I recommend this facility.

I really like the facility and I am very impressed with the setup you have.

It was lovely to meet you last Friday and finally get the Caravan in to secure storage. I really like the facility and I am very impressed with the setup you have. I received your welcome letter yesterday and have set up the standing order for the 1st July and then to continue at the begin of each month thereafter.

Thank you once again.

I would recommend Hogleaze Storage to anyone thinking of storing their possessions

It has been a most enjoyable experience entrusting Hogleaze Storage Ltd with my furniture, household and personal possessions, since August 2012.

It was good to meet Shelley, her helpful and friendly demeanor, nothing was too much – she even brought along bolt cutters in case I could not open the padlock on the shutter doors. She was happy to show Gentleman Removals and myself the way.

The service has been excellent throughout the seven years, with up-to-date monthly invoices and security information – thoughtful and caring – all my possessions including the ones I did not know I had stored in the unit, were intact and working.

I would recommend Hogleaze Storage Ltd to anyone thinking of storing their household, office and personal possessions, whether short or long-term. The location is worth a visit on its own, the site is safe and secure, clean and accessible 24/7.
