Motorhome inspection agents

I need to have my van independently assessed. Does anyone know of a company that can be used that can provide a specialised engineers report.

I am not a number. I am a free man.
But only when my wife says so.

Try a local trusted Motorhome dealer if it's habitation, or a Fiat or whoever if it's for the base vehicle.

Look at the institute of automotive engineer assessors web site you can find an engineer close to your post code for all different requirements

I need someone independent to give their opinion on the bodywork. Possible warranty issues.

Hymer dealer might be best, if it's still the Hymer B668

Hi Kev,

Iím trying to get someone independent as i feel that if i go to someone who deals with hymers there will just be collusion, which is what i am trying to avoid at all costs. We have a bodywork problem that needs sorting pronto.

I am not a number. I am a free man.
But only when my wife says so.

Right I see now the light is on, then an independent dealer, if you need someone independent to give their opinion on the bodywork, try a body shop, most big towns will have one that does larger vehicles, car ones not going to be any good as their quality levels far exceed any motorhome finishes.

I would suggest something like a company who specialise in repairing coaches as they are the closest thing to a MH constructions wise. Same materials (aluminium sheeting, fibreglass panels etc) and they have expertise in repairing them UNLIKE a car body shop.

Andy

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
