Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I have my caravan in storage and I need to tow it to my home as I am selling it.

My car that has the tow bar is in London with my son for a few months and I have viewings in the caravan this week.

 

Is there anyone in the oxford area that will tow it for me please.

 

Many thanks

You should check any volunteers insurance. I am sure my insurer would not insure me towing someone else's van.

 

Take care

If the storage site will allow it, why not meet prospective purchasers at the storage site? Not everyone can keep their caravan at home so I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem.

As long as it is not for hire or reward, your insurance company need not be informed provided that towing is not specifically excluded by your policy. Unlikely considering most people on here own caravans. Where exactly are you and when do you need it moving?

Is it just me or is this a wind-up?

You have a tow car in London and live in Oxford - hardly a million miles apart - but you are asking complete strangers to tow your 'van home for you?

 

Not a route I'd be going down.

Hi Livi

 

No it's not a wind up!!! Why would I take the time to ask for people's help.

My son has taken the car to London but has gone away for a few months traveling . .. As he has taken a lot of stuff ( snowboards etc) with him he has taken my car with the tow bar to fit all his stuff in and left it at the airport. U have another smaller car to use myself!!!!!! I had no idea the man storing my van would be so difficult as to when I can take people to view it and don't want to loose perspective buyers.

Not that I have to explain my situation to you anyway if you havnt got anything nice to say or useful then don't waste your time posting a comment.

 

I looking for help not people to make stupid remarks!

Excuse me for being so stupid.

 

Your original post stated that your tow car was in London with your son, so it seemed perfectly reasonable to think that it was logical for your son to make the relatively short trip from London to Oxford to do the necessary, rather than having to ask strangers.

Silly me, taking the written word at face value.

 

Good luck with your sale.

Yes but if that was the case then don't you think I would of asked him to do so!

Just caught me by surprise that someone would comment something so negative when all I'm trying to do is sort out an issue.

If there was another way of doing it I would.

Please do not be put off from some negative comments, after all you have only made 5 posts. And no one knows your situation ;)

Good luck with getting your van home and sold :)

Why not fetch the car back from the airport?, I am sure it will be safer at your home than left at the airport for several months and will save a considerable sum of money

Unbelievable some people they really are. Ignore the nit pickers. ..

 

If I were nearer I would gladly tow your van for you, sorry I'm not a bit closer.

 

Good luck with it all. ..

Ditto Crusader, sad really (I have started blocking some members for that reason) just pick and choose and when it starts to get silly I move on.

 

Back on track, good luck with your sale

I actually thought it was better this winter than normal in here!

Anyway, insurance wise I would make sure you are covered for another person towing your van, we all know how much insurance companies enjoy taking money but tend not to be so happy when they need to pay out. Their car insurance will only cover them for anything they hit with your van and not any damage that may happen to your van.

I'm a bit far away also so I won't be able to offer to pull your van, sorry :(

Spare set of keys and hopefully son has left car park ticket in car?

 

Edit - some of us, me included, have a tendency to jump in too quickly sometimes but if all the facts/history aren't given, then it's to be expected.

 

So, if I know on this occasion that there's no spare keys (I'm thinking as if it was my car), then I wouldn't jump in with what might appear to be a sarcastic question.

It would help if people knew the size of caravan that requires towing and weight.

Rigg1 - did you hire a tow car in the end or get your van home at all?
