Habitation Checks Carried Out By An Engineer

What is a habitation check?

Your habitation check is, above all, a safety check and it’s vitally important to have regular checks, particularly on gas and electrical systems, to ensure they are working correctly and are safe to use. A habitation check gives you peace of mind that your vehicle is safe to use and well-maintained, ready for your next trip. Regular checks and preventative maintenance can also reduce the chance of small problems becoming bigger problems and costing far more to put right. The report we provide after we’d finished our inspection will keep you up to date with warranty sequels, and up to date maintenance records also increase the re-sale value of your vehicle.

Why have an annual habitation check?

The inspection is designed to carefully check your vehicle to ensure it complies with regulations and safety requirements within the leisure industry. Our experienced engineers will carry out a thorough inspection of your motorhome or caravan’s habitation area. We will check your electrical, gas and water systems to ensure everything is working perfectly. We will also look at the risk of fire, provide damp testing, and check your vehicle’s external bodywork.  We also check for any problems and find anything that might need repairing before it becomes a major issue. On completion of the inspection, you will receive a full report with observations and recommendations for remedial action as required.

Additional Services

As well as your full habitation check, we also offer separate services for your convenience. 

Engineer Checking Motorhome

Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI)

Before buying a motorhome or caravan, your PDI can make sure you’re getting a quality vehicle with no nasty surprises. We’ll give the vehicle a thorough inspection and give you all the information you need to make a decision. You and the seller will get a copy of our report to decide whether any work is to be carried out before the sale, and if you want to go ahead.

Price From £200.00

Motorhome Damp Report

Damp Report

Your caravan or motorhome will get a full damp test which will show any water leaking into the vehicle. Using the industry standard meter allows us to see the smallest problems with damp and deal with them before they turn into major damage that costs far more to repair. It’s also worth getting a damp test done on any vehicle you’re thinking of buying.

Price From £60.00

Engineer Performing Motorhome Gas Safety Check

Gas Systems Safety Check

While you don’t need a yearly gas inspection if you don’t rent your vehicle out, you do have to have one, by law, if it is rented out. We recommend an inspection even if only you and your family use your vehicle. We can provide a Gas Safe registered inspector, to check for leaks, look at your ventilation, check the pressure on the gas regulator, and provide a full safety check.

What Our Customers Say...

Chip Harrison
Absolutely brilliant
I’m no where near finishing my electrics or the build. But just when I was stuck, Chris repaired what mess I had made. Rewired my lighting and gave brilliant advice on where to go next! With his prices I wish I’d have sought his help before paying for equipment I didn’t even need and spending hours and hours still not getting anywhere. Thanks Chris
Andy Higgins

Chris came highly recommended by more than one person and I can see why. He fixed what potentially was a very expensive job, diagnosed the problem really quickly and saved me a fortune. Very trustworthy, excellent communicator and very reasonably priced. Couldn’t asked for more from a highly skilled professional. Thank you
Helen Mitchell
Excellent Repair

Chris has done a great job for us repairing our campervan awning. l contacted several places to enquire about getting it repaired and was constantly told we would have to have a new one fitted. Chris was the only person who was prepared to have a go, he finished the job this evening and we now have a fully working awning.


Frequently Asked Questions

Well, many of these checks are for safety, ensuring that your services, including gas and electricity are working without any problems, so we do highly recommend them. We also check to make sure everything is in good condition, with no damp, so that any problems are spotted earlier and don’t cost as much.

We are based in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, and cover Nottinghamshire and surrounding areas, though we will look at travelling further, depending on the job. We offer a mobile service, so we come to you. If you’re not sure if we cover your area, send us an email and we’ll let you know.

It’s best to send us an email as we may be with a customer and prefer not to take calls during a job, but you can call too. We’ll pick up if we’re available, or you can leave a message.

We do a very thorough check over your motorhome or caravan, and this can take some time, and it does depend on whether you are having any further checks done at the same time. However, when you book, we will be able to give you a better idea of how long it will take.
