Spring is here, and with it comes the chance to get out on the open road with your caravan and enjoy it in comfort and style. There’s nothing better than spending time in the great outdoors – but your dream holiday could turn into a nightmare if your caravan breaks down. Fortunately, the Approved Workshops Scheme can help you minimise the risk, allowing your break to be remembered for all the right reasons.
Go to the professionals
You may think that your local garage can service your caravan – after all, how different can it be from servicing a car? The answer to that is “very”. Whether you have a motorhome or a tourer, these vehicles are completely different animals from cars. If you rely on a car specialist, there’s always the risk that, being unfamiliar with caravan design and technology, they’ll fail to spot a problem that might spell big trouble for you down the road.
For the sake of your caravan’s health – and your own safety – it’s highly recommended that you get your vehicle inspected and serviced by a specialist endorsed by the Approved Workshops Scheme. To remain approved by the AWS, a workshop must pass regular independent assessments and its mechanics must demonstrate a consistently high level of expertise and professionalism; there is a clear Code of Practice that must be followed.
A name you can rely on
The Approved Workshops Scheme is a joint initiative between three highly respected organisations: the Caravan Club, the National Caravanning Club and the Camping and Caravanning Club. With that kind of backing, you can be sure that the service you receive will be of the highest standard. You’ll also get financial security: all AWS-approved workshops are required to give you clear estimates of how much your caravan’s service will cost and how long it will take.
On top of all that, using a workshop in the Approved Workshops Scheme will give you something more valuable still: peace of mind. Nobody wants to spend their break worrying about what might go wrong. Get your caravan serviced by AWS-approved professionals, and you’ll be able to concentrate on having a good time – which is what your holiday should really be about.
