Companies that will insure when Eriba is kept on a farm

Our insurance for the Triton comes up soon. Can anyone please recommend insurers who will accept the caravan being stored in a locked unit on a working farm - and who will insure a 2007 'van?

Currently with C&MH club insurance as they were the only one I could find when we bought the Triton last January that would quote. Some would not insure if it is kept on a farm (despite being in a securely locked barn), others would not insure if the 'van is more than 10 years old.

Nick, I'd start phoning around the usual names. Lifesure, Ripe, Cover4Caravans.

Thanks Colin. I'm hoping that someone also has their Eriba housed on a farm and can point me to a company that will definitely quote. But if nothing transpires I will give these a go.

Our 2005 Triton is stored on a farm and insured with no problems with AmTrust Europe through Cover4Caravans. I can PM you the Information Document if that is of interest.

I suppose, realistically, farm equipement is a prime target for criminals so a nice juicy Eriba nearby might be an irresistible target.

Ours is quite well protected with high earth banks and a whopping security gate, but, of course, anything can be stolen if the thieves really want it... I'm sure the half dozen or so motorhomes would be a more tempting target, though. And I have my little Eriba covered up and sheltering between two large "normal" caravans...

As an aside, I was under the impression that you cannot attach a file to a pm. Is that correct?

Try Adrian Flux we were insured having our van stored in an open barn on a farm for many years 😀

Tried Cover4Caravans this morning. They will not quote unless there are at least five caravans stored on the farm. Bizarre.

Steve is right, you cannot attach anything to a PM, but you can exchange email addresses and do it that way

I emailed Ripe Insurance to ask if they would accept locked storage on a working farm. Got a quick and helpful reply saying, yes. Completed the online quotation form this morning - the most straightfoward and easiest I have ever come across - and arrived at a quote of £126. I shall be taking this up in due course.

Thanks for all the advice and recommendations.
