Sarah and James at GW Caravan Services

James Hogg

Director

James Hogg started out as an insurance advisor and progressed to become an insurance claim assessor in the motor industry. His introduction to caravans came when he joined his parent’s caravan salvage business in 2000. While working within the caravan salvage industry, insurance companies began requesting caravan repairs and at that point, a separate company, GW Caravan Services Ltd, was created.

James’s experience in repairing and servicing caravans is vast. He has personally undertaken each and every type of repair and has years of hands-on experience and intricate knowledge of the repair techniques used within the industry. He’s still the man who sorts out all the real hard-to-solve technical problems.

James has the following qualifications: (ACOPS) gas competency, City & Guilds in Caravan Engineering (Touring Caravans & Motorhomes), CITO Electrical Testing & Inspection, CITO Electrical Extra Low Voltage. He has also attended training courses with all of the main suppliers to the industry (Al-Ko, Truma, Whale, Thetford, Dometic, BPW, Alde and Swift Group including the Smart HT system).

Whether you are looking for a quotation for accident damage (including insurance quotations) or would like to speak to someone about a repair, James is the person to contact.

Sarah Hogg

Director & Company Secretary

Sarah Hogg started out in the legal department of an electronics company where she gained experience in Commercial and Contract Law.
