France

Mobile homes and static caravans to France.

I specialise in selling and transporting mobile homes and static caravans to all parts of France and have been doing it for over 10 years.

It is considerably cheaper to buy a mobile home or static caravan in UK and have it transported to France rather than buying one there. You have only to look at the selling prices of second-hand mobile homes and static caravans in France as compared to buying one in UK and having it transported to France.

A lot of the mobile homes and static caravans that I have taken to France over the years have been resold when the restoration or building projects are complete and I have moved them to the new owners and so am aware that they are often changing hands for the same or more than they cost several years earlier!

I speak fluent French and understand their way of looking at things. This can be very important when dealing with the local mayor and the ‘marie’ (town hall). Local government can be much more important in France – especially in rural communities where the mayors word is law and most of the local people are relatives or friends of his. The mayors usually assume that mobile homes and static caravans need planning permission. They generally have no knowledge of the European law (May 1999) which allows for the installation of mobile homes and static caravans without planning permission if certain criteria are met (see page on EU law). This needs to be explained without upsetting them.

I offer the full service of transporting, delivering and even siting the mobile home or static caravan, liaising with officialdom (including the mayor and the various utility companies) and can even supply a mobile home or static caravan from our own stock (see ‘stock’ page).
Prices for transport and delivery are dependant on the size and type of mobile home or static caravan, where from in UK and where to in France (see ‘transport prices‘ page) but start from under a £1,000. Mobile homes and static caravans start from just a few hundred up to a few thousand pounds.
