Benefits of letting a static caravan
The road to having a holiday home to call your own is often one fraught with questions. After all, the stakes are much higher when you’re going beyond a simple holiday into a world where you’ll have a place to return to as and when you please.
One of the most frequent questions our prospective owners ask us is whether buying a static caravan is an investment opportunity or not. Our response is always similar: purchasing a static caravan is about lifestyle, not finance. There is a huge caveat though: the costs of ownership can be offset by some smart choices you can make along the way. Letting is the best way in which you can eat into the cost of your purchase and give a holidaymaker a taste of life in your van. We’ve got a whole load of static caravans to let through our family of owners, and in this article, we’ll explain the benefits of letting a static caravan with us.
You'll earn from your asset
Even though the value of a caravan depreciates in a similar way to a car, you still have a household asset that thousands of prospective holidaymakers would jump at the chance to stay in. By allowing your static caravan to be let with us, you’ll be earning some handy extra cash from a place that would be empty without you and your loved ones’ presence anyway.
Letting out your caravan is a great way to offset the site fees and running costs associated with having a holiday home of your own, all whilst you get on with your day-to-day life at your main base. Whilst the resale value of your holiday home will diminish as time goes on, the income you gain from renting it out provides a steady stream of cash that can be reinvested in the maintenance of your caravan or other pressing needs that come up in daily life.
You’ll get to choose a letting plan that suits you
With caravans to let at Haven, we’ve made it easier than ever for owners to avail from the financial opportunity. There are two different ways in which you can let your caravan with us.
Our fixed letting service gives you a nice round figure on what you’re guaranteed to earn when we accept letting your holiday home for a specific date. The amount is based on history and risk and allows you to budget for your site fees and running costs accordingly. This is a great option if you want to know exactly how much you’ll earn.
Our flexi option sees us play the role of a letting agent, allowing you to earn proportionately from the amount of money we receive from the guest in your holiday home. Our success will be your success, with unrivalled advertising exposure courtesy of us. You’ll reap the rewards from the interest, so it goes without saying that this is a great option for letting during our busiest times of year like summer and bank holidays.
You’ll get a complimentary deep clean
Looking after one home is challenge enough, but managing two separate spaces that you return to frequently is a different ball game, especially when the second is associated with a leisurely time relaxing. When you provide your caravan to let via us, we’ll throw in a free deep clean to make sure it's looking spick and span for our holidaymakers and for you when you return.
We also throw in a complimentary carpet and upholstery wash throughout your letting duration as and when required, making sure that no stone is left unturned in providing the shiniest of spaces for our guests and you, one of our owners.
You’ll have the entire process managed for you
Our terrific team will handle the admin and the paperwork, so you can be sure your holiday home is well looked after. We’ll also take care of the bookings in our caravans to let space, meaning you can focus on the financial perks.
From advertising our holidays, guest payments and arrivals to customer queries and cleaning, we handle everything the guest will need during their stay in your holiday home. Sit, back, relax and let us do the legwork so you don’t have to. Our on-park experience team always have you in mind when we’re welcoming guests into your home, so nothing short of tip top shape is the expectation for when you return to your retreat.
