We Sold Our Chausson To TC Motorhomes

We Sold Our Chausson To TC Motorhomes, Who Made The Process So Easy .

Selling our motorhome to TC Motorhomes was stress free, quick and simple.

We bought our motorhome from them 5 years ago and were impressed with the service they gave at the time.

So when we decided to sell, our first instinct was to email them to see if they would be interested in buying it back. 

We had a phone call the next day, offering a very good price and they even offered to come and collect it from us to save us a round trip of over 400miles to return it to them. The MOT had lapsed and they also sorted that out for us.

We didn’t even bother to make enquires elsewhere.

Three days later the motorhome was picked up and the money went straight into our account.

The whole process was seamless from start to finish, and took away the worry of trying to sell the motorhome privately.

We thoroughly recommend TC Motorhomes for all aspects of the service they offer.

Jaspers Travels

Just before Christmas we sold a Chausson 640 Used Motorhome to a lovely lady called Karen. 

Karen and Jasper (her cat) have already travelled over 1000 miles just over the xmas hoildays, once she got in to her New Motorhome she just kept going! 

In the near future the pair are planning on a roadtrip to France, the only plan at this point is to get there, Karen has no real destination in mind and is just going to drive. 

Above you can see a photo of Jasper just chilling while Karen popped in to Pets at Home to get some provisions. 

Karen wrote to us just after Christmas updating us and letting us know how happy she is. 

She wrote, 

"I am in love 😍.  When I am out in the moho, I don't want to come home....

Drives like a dream, everything about her is perfect and suits me fantastically. Cat loves it too. 

Since I collected her, she has done York and parts of the Peak District over Xmas. 

Then down the coast from Folkestone through Brighton, Portsmouth, into the New Forest and down to Bournemouth before turning for home, over New Year. 

I wild camped using park4nite and it was amazing and so easy, had everything I needed. 

Have somehow managed to clock up 1000 miles already on my travels...."

The above photo prompted some more questions! Apparently Jasper is just like a dog and doesn't go far from Karen at any time, he wears a tracker when he is out of the motorhome. When Karen visited the New Forest Jasper took himself out for a quick look about the local area and returned back for breakfast and a nap. 

We look forward to hearing more from Karen and seeing some more of Jasper's adventures. 

Karen left us a review on Google you can read it here: TC Motorhomes Review by Karen on Google.

Motorhome Service

The importance of servicing your Motorhome by a professional, competent dealership

It's that time of year where the motorhoming community is looking to book their spring road trips. For those who have have had their motorhome parked up on their drive or have had it in storage over the winter months now is the time to consider a service / habbitation check for peace of mind.
Here at TC Motorhomes we have a modern NCC Approved work shop and our skilled technicians have years of combined experience.

Mechanical Servicing

Mechanical servicing is carried out on the chassis and engine of your motorhome and depending on mileage, should be carried out at least every two years, or at 10k mileage intervals if sooner.

At TC Motorhomes we also recommend that an oil and filter change is carried out in the years between full servicing and in line with vehicle manufacturers recommendations, due to the relatively low number of miles covered.

Our Used Motorhome Sales Service and Inspection is comprehensive and includes Oil, Air, Fuel and Pollen filters being replaced, Cam Belt replacement if applicable, engine oil replaced, wheels removed for brake, brake pipe and wheel bearing inspection, and exhaust, suspension, tyres and underside appraisal too. A thorough road-test of each vehicle including checking the controls and switches, that the Air-Conditioning and Cruise-Control is working etc is completed ensuring that no stone is left un-turned, including a new MOT Inspection, (IF APPLICABLE) being carried out on-site.

Habitation Servicing

Habitation servicing at TC Motorhomes is carried out in accordance with the NCC (National Caravan Council) Approved Workshop Scheme, and should be carried out annually on the 'home' element of your Motorhome.

It is designed to check that the gas, electric, water systems and appliances in your Motorhome are running safely and smoothly and in the unlikely event of damp entering your motorhome it is detected and dealt with as soon as possible.

Every effort is made to establish whether any issues are `developing` that are easier dealt with in their infancy, than if left unchecked.

Some Camp-Sites may wish to inspect your most recent habitation inspection to determine that your vehicle has passed all of the stringent safety checks.

If you would like to book your Motorhome in for a service or habbitation check then please contact us on 01227 289111 or visit our contact page for information on opening times or to send us a message via the website: Book a Motorhome Service.
