CRiS check a second hand caravan before committing to buy...

CaravanTimes speaks to the Central Registration and Identification Scheme (CRiS), detailing the importance of registering with the scheme.

Not only will a CRiS check tell you if a caravan has ever been written off by an insurance company, has any outstanding debts or is recorded on the Security Register, but it will also give any caravan owner peace of mind and ensure a caravan registered with the scheme can be traced in the eventuality that someone tries to fraudulently sell it.

In this video, Chris Jefferies of CaravanTimes talks to CRiS in further detail about online checks, and we go behind the scenes to the CRiS central hub to see how simple it is to check details concerning a second hand caravan, prior to committing to buy.
