At Caravan HQ we offer a comprehensive range of services for your caravan.

Caravan HQ are experts in all things Caravan Service.

How often should you get your caravan service? It is a question we are often asked.

Unlike cars and motorcycles, most manufacturers don’t include a service logbook, and even when they do, without an odometer, how do you know when your next caravan service is due?. The team at Caravan HQ recommend servicing your caravan every 10,000km, or before any big trip. If your caravan sits still for an extended period of time, it would be wise to get it serviced before heading out with your van in tow.

A service can help you avoid running into avoidable troubles while you are out on the road. It can be very frustrating heading off on a holiday, only to have a problem with your van. Our service is designed to help you avoid this from happening, so you can get on and enjoy your trip.

Your safety is of great importance to us. Our team of trained and experienced technicians are happy to share the wealth of knowledge with you, and give you guidance in maintaining your caravan or RV.

The importance of regularly servicing your caravan is something that too many people overlook. Your pride and joy was a big purchase, and proper maintenance is paramount to the long life of your investment. Like anything, the better you look after it, the better job it will look after you.
