if you are paying admin charges then to me it is upto the park to check with insurers as to whether insurance is valid.Otherwise you are paying somebody 35 or 40 pounds to stick a piece of paper in a file.

I suppose Im a bit out of synch here as an 'owner'.
Im of the belief that all vans should be compelled to insure via the park owner

I can then sleep soundly knowing that my neighbour hasnt " saved" him/herself ten quid with a poxy company that has cut an (unknown) corner and put everyones 30 k at risk

If the park under insures then you have someone to chase(them)

In my experience sending the bill is the only way to get some people to produce their documents. It often takes multiple letters to get the documents and to be honest I've got better things to do and 35 plus VAT rarely covers covers out time and postage. There's also no way of checking if a person cancels their insurance having produced the documents, so your neighbours could be uninsured, putting both you and themselves at risk.

I have say I agree, as long as the park works to keep fees competitive. Whole park policies are so much safer for everyone

I think if you need to make a claim it would be so much easier if it goes through site insurance rather than your own... when I looked into a quote there were loads of techy spec questions that I couldn't answer so my own insurance would probably have been invalid anyway?

We dont pay an admin fee, Havens prefered insurer is Aviva, saved 160 by going with Coast, site required a copy of the schedule as proof of cover.
We also received 20 M&S voucher.
