Servicing

GW Caravans is an award winning NCC Approved workshop.

The NCC Approved Workshop Scheme, in partnership with the Caravan Club and Camping & Caravanning Club, is an established benchmark for the industry and our acceptance means that we have met the high standards required and demonstrated commitment to quality and service.

Approved-Workshop

Our workshop must pass an annual inspection by a team of independent assessors and must comply with the scheme’s rigorous standards for facilities and workmanship so you can be sure that your caravan or motorhome is in safe hands.

Manufacturers recommend that your caravan or motorhome is serviced at least once every 12 months. Before you take your van or motorhome back out on the road, give yourself peace of mind by booking in for a service.

Caravan servicing – Brakes and Tyres

Ever wondered what the inside of your caravan brakes look like and why it’s important to get them serviced regularly? Also, why do tyres need changing even though they appear to have plenty of tread left on them?

This shows some of the equipment we use and covers the importance of gas testing the system. We also demonstrate how we check the electrics.
