No Phones!!!

Just to keep you posted we’ve been without office phones for a week now. It’s a line fault somewhere between Wolvey and the farm. So, if you see telephone engineers in the ditches alongside Wolvey Road, you know what they’re looking for – we hope.

Internet is still connected for e-mails and the Duty mobile is also available for emergencies – details alongside the office door.

Watch this space for more news!!

Price Changes

As current customers will know we always review our prices at the end of the year. We are aware of the continuing difficult circumstances for everyone and have done our best to hold our fees at the current level. We are pleased to say that we will hold the 2013 prices for another year.

However, we have a growing problem with bad debts. Several people have simply disappeared over the last year, leaving us with their caravan. Often we have simply had to scrap the van after trying repeatedly to get in touch with them. This also means we have lost a set of the electronic access keys. In order to cover these costs we have decided to increase the deposit taken on those keys to £85 from 1st. January 2014. Please note this remains a deposit and will be refunded in full when a customer leaves provided we have had a month’s notice – this includes deciding not to renew when fees fall due – and the electronic keys are returned.

The storage fees page of the website has been updated to reflect this change.
