I know what your saying but does every body have a yearly test on their home unit? I dont think so. In saying that i do have our non rented van tested one year and serviced the next.

We have a yearly gas safety check on our rental but also on our private caravan, our insurance states this must be done

parkdean charged us 125 last year for our rental so this year we have a bloke from the private site doing both vans for 80, it makes it easier for us as last year we missed out on 2 weeks of renting as parkdean left our van until the beginning of april even thought we paid for it to be done before march

Nope no work done, checked the hob, gas fire, water boiler, oven/grill and central heating boiler. Just checked the flame colour, pressure tests and smoke bombs up the flues. Most I have ever paid anyone for an hours work. Lesson learnt.

Hi Angela,
Our prices have remained pretty level, even since the date of my original thread. We like to stay pretty consistant. If there is a group of you on the same site who require a gas safety inspectiion, both for subletting or just because your park requires all owners to have an up to date certificate, we may even consider dropping the the price if you were all to have the inspection done at the same time.
Ian

Default New year, new safety certifcate required.

HI all, with the season just round the corner, do not forget to get your safety inspections carried out prior to sub-letting. Most sites would expect you to have the relevent certificates for both gas and electrical. We can help with both. Prices start at 45.00 for an gas safety inspection and certification no parts fitted.
We also do PAT testing and fixed wire testing, in fact whatever your site requires, we can do.
