habitation service

Like you Barry I think they are a bit of a rip. I have gaslow tails and gauge so the gas check is easy, I check every couple of months with a damp meter so what else is there?

Hi
Just wished we lived nearer to you!
both Discover and Bhills quoted me £250
would cost me loads in diesel to go elsewhere

Barry, Tyne Valley Motorhomes (not that far from you, are they?) £149. OK it's more expensive than "half-price" at £125 but you might get a better job done?

There's probably not much in a standard hab service if you're handy and have the kit for the damp test etc. but if you're cack-handed like me... 8O

Also it's a condition of the Swift warranty I think that the hab service is done annually by a dealer or "competent" workshop, if that concerns people at all.

It's a bit like those pubs that do two meals for the price of one, and put their prices up to accommodate that! Of course I'm not saying that the named dealers are doing that :roll:

And as has been said, why is it so expensive, and most of it can be done yourself. 8)

:p Hi we have an autrotrail bought from new, so as part of the warranty the HAB checks must be done otherwise the warranty is null and void, rubbish i know. We have ours done at campbells near Blackpool, they are a really nice friendly people. It costs £150

You can pay in excess of £50,000 for a motorhome :eek: So why does the thought of spending less than £100 a year to have a habitation service and to keep your warranty in force seem a waste of money :? A full habitation service takes around 2 - 3 hours to complete using specialist equipment i.e manometer / pressure test , gas flue analyser , damp meter etc....
You pays your money you take your chance :D

I only have the water ingress check done to keep the warranty valid, as the majority if not all of the items on the standard habitation list have no listed maintenance to be carried out how can they affect the warranty.
I have had a new Chausson and a new Autosleeper in the past and it was confirmed in eash case by the dealer or manufaturer that the lack of a habitation check did not and could not invalidate the warranty.
For example the Burstner warranty is 2 years so if the Dometic fridge went wrong in this time then they would have to deal with it, as in fact Camper UK are doing at the very moment.

Why not use Mark Central Leisure Services, you will be suprised by the price.
He is authorised to do Swift.

http://www.central-leisure-services.co.uk/

Steve
Please re-read above

He is the cheapest you will find I believe and a authorised by Swift so warranty is not affected.

Search for CLS on here and you will get more postings

Steve
Not only is he authourised by Swift Group but he comes to you and he is a damn sight cheaper that you know who.

Peter

Oh as an afterthought, he knows what he is doing as well.

Mark from CLS did mine last year for a reasonable price, it took him three hours, and he can do it again this year if it means me not having to take it anywhere. 8) :D

Yes, I looked at the website and it looks good. But he doesn't cover the NE or NW does he? Barry's in the NE and I'm in the NW (far NW at that!).

A service that covers parts of the Midlands as stated won't help us even if it is mobile.

I am from the North East and we have met Mark on a site in the Midlands to have work done.

The way I look at it you have a M/H to travel about so why not get a service done when you are away, all you need to do is plan ahead and make arrangments with Mark.


The money you will save using CLS will pay for your trip away as well, so everyone is a winner IMHO :D :D :D

There you are, form a HABITATION SERVICE MEET with free entertainment watching poor Mark work, you might learn something as well.

Seriously, good old chinwag together and a few beers and its all sorted.

Mark from CLS did our habitation check at the Newbury show. He did a very good job and I shall be getting him to do it next year - Hopefully at the show again :lol:

If you are going to be at any shows check with Mark and if he's there I'm sure he can fit you in.
