CaravanTimes visits TravelWorld in Shropshire to find out more about the dealership's stringent gas and electricity safety checks, handover processes and much more

by Joe Jeffrey

When it comes to driving off in a new or used motorhome, getting out and enjoying everything motorhome ownership has to offer should be the main thought on your mind. With an extensive handover process and stringent safety checks in place, providing peace of mind for all, that's certainly the case from what we saw when we visited TravelWorld in Shropshire.

Having served the motorhome community for over 30 years, the UK's largest Hymer Group dealership, TravelWorld, hardly scrimp when it comes to safety. In fact safety sits firmly at the top of the tree when it comes to any new or used motorhome leaving their forecourt in search of the open road and what adventures lie ahead.

From pre-delivery inspections, consisting of a more-than-thorough check of each and every motorhome before each customer is passed the keys, to gas and electrical safety testing by fully qualified staff in TravelWorld's National Caravan Council Approved Workshop Scheme onsite premises, it seems no stone is left unturned.

Also high on the agenda is TravelWorld's stringent handover process. Before any customer is passed the keys to their new purchase, the dealership's friendly staff ensure that each and every customer is provided with all necessary information to ensure the best experience possible.

CaravanTimes went along to TravelWorld to find out more.
