Coronavirus Update

WE ARE FULLY OPERATIONAL (18.05.2020)

Following national guidelines we are now able to be open fully. Access is as usual in line with our opening hours. We would ask that you observe the 2m social distancing rule while on the premises. Please note that the toilet facility will remain closed at the present time.   

CORONAVIRUS: REVISED GUIDANCE FOR CARAVAN STORAGE BUSINESSES (25.03.2020)

You will all be aware of the national directions relating to the containment of coronavirus.  These now state that nobody should leave home for purposes other than essential shopping, collecting medications or work-related reasons for Key Workers.  No journeys should be undertaken which are not unavoidable for those reasons.

It is clearly incumbent upon all businesses to ensure that, if they operate, they do so within these critical regulations.  The latest professional guidance that we have been able to access clarifies the position for caravan storage facilities.  It states that, whilst non-essential retail outlets must close, storage is not retail.  Visiting our compound may, in occasional circumstances, be important to those carrying out crucial tasks as Key Workers to protect us all (not all stored vehicles are caravans).  These would clearly be acceptable visits.  Journeys by others to Border Caravan Storage would be unlikely to be classified at ‘essential travel’.

Border Caravan Storage, therefore, currently remains open.  We are happy for those who, due to their key roles in the current emergency, must visit our facility to do so (in line with the guidance in our previous communication).  We would ask all others, for obvious reasons, not to visit until further notice.

We are aware that some motorhomes in the compound will require MoT testing during the coming weeks.  Currently it will be acceptable for vehicles requiring this to be collected, removed from the compound and returned after the test is complete.  Please contact us in advance so that we can ensure, insofar as is possible, that all safety measures relating to social distancing can be properly exercised.

The safety of our customers remains our paramount concern.  We are sure that all of our customers will understand the need for the measures outlined above and we look forward to seeing you all again when the emergency is over.

Keep safe

BORDER CARAVAN STORAGE: CORONAVIRUS PRECAUTIONS (23.03.2020)

As you will be aware all businesses are considering ways in which they can keep their customers and staff safe in the difficult times through which we are currently living.  This is of great importance to us.

Caravan storage is in a low risk category and there is not, as a result, any need for the facility to be closed.  We must not, however, be complacent.  The health and wellbeing of our customers remains, as always, our top priority and as such we have introduced additional measures to minimise risk to all concerned:

  1. Readers (for the entry gates), the toilet door and other surfaces in communal spaces are being sanitised even more often than usual – though usage is understandably down.
  2. All customers should, when visiting the compound, exercise the same rules on social distancing as already widely recommended by the health authorities. Do not visit Border Caravan Storage if you are experiencing any of the well-publicised symptoms of Covid 19.  Even if you are showing no symptoms avoid unnecessary contact with others and maintain a 2m gap between yourself and other people.  Be careful not to ‘invade’ the 2m space of another customer!
  3. If you need to speak to us please do so by email or telephone (leave a message if the answerphone cuts in and we will call you back). The office will be closed to customers until further notice in order to ensure that the staff working there are able to preserve their 2m ‘social distance’.
  4. Any payments should be made by BACS or card which will avoid the need for us to handle cash or you to handle change.

 

We hope that all of our customers will maintain good health through the ongoing emergency and will emerge full of enthusiasm for the holiday season which will still, we hope, lie ahead.

 

Best wishes from the Border Caravan Storage Team
