Listed below are a few pointers for you to take in consideration
when thinking of purchasing a Caravan.
The CRiS Check
Buying a pre-owned caravan then make sure you carry out a CRiS Check prior to concluding the deal. Don’t get caught buying a caravan with a hidden history or an altered identity. A CRiS Check will not only confirm the caravans true identity, but will also reassure you of the provenance of the caravan you desire and will reveal if the caravan is subject to an HP agreement, reported stolen or been recorded as an Insurance Write-Off. In addition CRiS will be able to confirm if the ‘seller’ is currently recorded with CRiS as the current keeper.
To buy your CRiS Check ring 01722 411 430 between 8:00am and 8:00pm Monday – Friday, 9:00am – 5:00pm Saturdays and 10:00am – 5:00pm Sundays. The cost of a CRiS Check is just £14.95.
Change of Keeper Notification
When you buy or sell your caravan it is important to ensure the new owner is properly registered as the keeper. The CVR2 Registration Document issued to the current keeper should be used to notify CRiS of any keeper change. Like the V5 document for your car,the CVR2 should be completed by both, seller and buyer and both parts sent to CRiS. There is a small fee for processing this change and it is normally the new registering keeper who would pay this. The fee as at 3rd September 2007 is £12.00. This can be paid by cheque or by credit card via the CRiS Contact Centre.
Once you have decided what caravan to buy, make sure your car can tow it safely. Overweight outfits can attract a fine of up to £3000. For the definitive outfit matching service, try Towsafe
