Can you tell us which Agency organizes this? Do you deliver MH to agent or customer or do they collect?
What about extra insurance costs and weekly rental net of agents fees?
Any other information would assist us.

I don't know if that would be frowned on as advertising - but you shouldn't have much trouble finding out if you know where to look

We spoke to them on their stand at the Peterborugh Show last year and found out that they are local to us.
We originally only looked to just store our m/home there, but the circumstances that meant we couldn't use the van much this year meant we decided to let them hire it out as well.
I didn't want it stood around doing nothing, as that is just the way to ruin a van and I didn't want to sell, as autos are few and far between.

The van is stored there 24/7 unless we collect it to use it and the first time this year won't be until Friday.

It will then be SORN'd until next year, when I think we have 2 bookings already.

Weekly rental varies according to time of year/what's on/type & age of van.

2 best bookings last year in relative terms were Glastonbury and Silverstone F1 GP.

Would you have to pay tax on the income from hiring your van?

If you made a profit I guess you would, but I don't get anywhere near even covering all my costs let alone making anything.

I'm not doing it as business, just a way to defray some of the costs of owning the van for a year we haven't been able to use it much.

Next year we hope to manage to use it more and have already "blocked out" the 2 weeks that cover Easter and the first May BH as it allows us to have 11days away, but Mrs S only has to take 4 days holiday. We have also booked one of the Norfolk Line "NEC Show Specials) and hope to have a couple of weeks (at least) abroad as well.
