A habitation check is like an MOT but for the living area of your campervan, motorhome or caravan. As well as a key safety requirement, it is a preventative measure to identify any concerns early before they are left to manifest into bigger, more expensive problems to fix later.
Safety is the priority. You have gas, electricity and water all together in a moving vehicle so the scope for things to go wrong is huge! We will check all of your systems onboard to ensure that your vehicle is safe to use.
The preventative element is about identifying issues like damp ingress or poor battery performance so that your systems don’t fail on your next trip, but we also diagnose problems that get gradually worse and can end up being very expensive to fix.
The habitation check takes around 4 hours to complete and takes place at our depot in Leeds (58 Commercial Road, LS5 3AQ).
We will provide you with a full habitation check report, highlighting any concerns, but as with any impartial habitation check company, we will not conduct repairs. The reason that habitation check companies operate like this is so that we have nothing to gain from highlighting faults to you as we will not then be able to charge you for us to repair them. This makes us completely impartial. There are repair centers which you can then take your vehicle to, along with your report, if you want them to conduct any specific repair.
