I recently sent ASDA an email asking about parking at their stores overnight, following a post on here about Tesco. My email and the ASDA response are below.

Hi

As the owner of a motorhome I often use ASDA for supplies and fuel when touring the UK. Following a discussion with some fellow motorhome users I became aware of the fact that Tesco allows motorhomes to use their carparks for overnight stays, providing that it is for a single night, the motorhome (maximum of 3) is parked well away from the store entrance and no waste is left behind. Does ASDA have a similar policy?

I'm an active member of a motorhome users website (motorhomefacts) which has in excess of 40,000 members on to which I would pass your response. Needless to say motorhome users, many of whom are pensioners, would most likely shop at the store whilst there which is good for yourselves.

Andy



Dear Andrew

Thank you for contacting me.

It would be best for you to contact the individual store that you are wanting to use and speak to the store manager as it is down to the discretion.

You can find our store telephone numbers on our website at and using our store locator.

Thanks again for contacting ASDA.

Kind Regards
Lucy Robinson
ASDA Service Team

Yeah. Ask the manager while pushing a trolly full to the brim with groceries. Twisted Evil

Walmart USA actively encouraged RV parking overnight.

Asda has been 'bought' by Corinth which is a subsidary of Walmart in a restructuring move so still under Walmart's control

There is a large Tesco in close proximity to the channel tunnel. When our Volvo coach broke down, the tunnel were as helpful and a chocolate teapot, yet Tesco were happy to allow the Volvo assist vehicle etc and our coach on site. Plus 48 hungry passengers! It makes good business sense.

There was a Sainsbury store with a restaurant, moments from the A1, and we always used that as our meal break when on the A1. Cheaper, better value for the passengers, a it always caused a laugh too. You would be surprised how many bought items such as shampp and other travel bits and bats.

I have stayed on Asda sites overnight several times. Each time I asked the manager's permission. These have been 24 hour stores and I left early morning after enjoying a cheap breakfast and stocking up on supplies.

Park well away from the entrance so as not to inconvenience other customers, leave no mess and buy a few provisions and we'll, hopefully, keep these people on side.

I posted this on other M/H sites re Parking at Asda Stores one in particular which springs to mind is Asda Cribbs Causeway J17 M5 the store used to allow HGV parking overnight at the top end of the car park I used it myself quite extensively when Iwas an HGV Driver (in a former life) after all you could get a reasonable meal with a beverage for 4 quid and then do a bit of shopping after

After a while it got silly on there a lot of "Foreigners" were parking there (one driver even did his smalls in the customer toilets!!) and the place was like a council tip...and who could blame the manager for stopping parking on his customer car park..they wouldn't even let Asda vehicles park overnight!!

Motorhomes are obviously a differing story so hopefully it may work for us as opposed to against us!! Happy Trails
