We’ve launched an exciting new venture: Park Home Search is a new online service dedicated to connecting buyers and sellers of new residential park homes, leisure homes and holiday lodges throughout the UK. It is free of charge to both buyers and sellers.

If you’re looking for a retreat in the countryside, a park home by the sea or somewhere close to your relatives, you can go to www.parkhomesearch.co.uk to find your dream home. You can browse hundreds of park and leisure homes at your convenience 24 hours a day. You can also register to receive information about new park homes in some of the most sought-after locations in the country, as soon as they become available.

How does Park Home Search work?

Manufacturers of park homes and holiday lodges and park operators add their new park homes and available plots to www.parkhomesearch.co.uk. This is also free of charge to encourage as many sellers as possible to use the website. Buyers can then search for their desired park home according to their specific criteria – such as type of home, location and whether they want to buy or rent a park home. Alternatively, buyers can browse through the park homes on offer, to see what inspires them.

Let Park Home Search do the searching for you

You can also register your details with Park Home Search and they will be passed on to the relevant park operators, who will contact you about new park homes and holiday lodges at your preferred locations as soon as they become available. All data handling is secure and GDPR compliant.

Park Home Search also provides valuable information with details of residential park and holiday park open days around the country.

Benefits to sellers

Manufacturers of park homes can promote as many new park homes and holiday lodges as they wish for free, while park operators can advertise their available plots free of charge. They can also advertise open weekends and shows and upload park brochures, videos and photos free of charge. After they have set up an online account with Park Home Search, the sellers control the information – uploading and updating all the details using an easy online form. In addition, sellers can receive email leads for potential buyers interested in their homes or parks.

Why set up Park Home Search?

As a specialist provider of insurance for park homes and holiday lodges. Steve Leech, Director at Park Home Assist said: “After 13 years in the industry, we’re well known and respected throughout the park home sector and it made sense for us to connect with our colleagues in other parts of the industry. Park Home Search provides an excellent, tailored service to both potential buyers of park and leisure homes and the manufacturers and park operators who are selling them. We’re very excited about the response that we have had so far.”

Dave Tranter is relishing his new role as Business Development Manager at Park Home Assist, which he started a few months ago. Dave has been at Park Home Assist for five and a half years, starting on the phones: taking enquiries and dealing with park home insurance quotes, before moving up to Sales Manager, and then Operations Manager.

Enjoying his new role, Dave says: “Having been at Park Home Assist for so long but in different roles, I know the company inside out. I’m passionate about our ethos of providing a high-quality personal service to our park home insurance customers and the fact that Park Home Assist is a UK-based family-run business. I’ve seen the business grow from around 7,000 policyholders to almost 30,000 and I’m really excited to be responsible for taking the business forward and growing it further.”

He continues: “I’m a real people person and relationships have a big impact on our success. In fact, our focus at Park Home Assist is just as much about people as it is about park home insurance. I’m looking forward to developing the relationships that I’ve built up over the years and getting out and about meeting new people. I’m seeing residential park owners and park operators as well as meeting members of residents’ associations.

Steve Leech, Director at Park Home Assist commented: “Dave is an excellent ambassador for Park Home Assist and a genuinely friendly, outgoing and charismatic person.

Glenholt Park Residents’ Association held a fundraising vintage garden party and summer fair recently, and Park Home Assist’s Business Development Manager, Dave Tranter, went along to help out.

Glenholt Park is a park home residential area for the over 50s in Plymouth, and has around 400 residents with an age range of 50 – 95. The Residents’ Association is working in partnership with The Community Heartbeat Trust to raise money for five defibrillators to be located at the residential park. This is in accordance with the South Western Ambulance Service guidelines of having a defibrillator within a 200m radius, and also means that they will be easily accessible to other residents living close to the residential park.

Glenholt Park Residents’ Association organised a vintage garden afternoon tea party and summer fair in collaboration with the Illuminate Hub at St. Anne’s Church. Not only did it raise money for the defibrillator fund, but also supported the long-term vision of creating a hub to bring both communities together.

Activities during the afternoon included cream teas in the church, a dog show (with categories such as ‘best veteran dog’ and ‘the waggiest tail!’) a raffle, tombola, woodwork and crafts for sale. A wildlife charity brought along some owls to meet the residents and there were even free Cornish pasties!

Park Home Assist donated the star prize for the raffle, which was £250 cash, as well as donating £250 to the defibrillator fund. Dave Tranter went along to meet the park home residents, hand over the cheque for the fund and present the lucky winner with the star raffle prize.

In addition, Dave provided information about Park Home Assist’s tailored insurance for park home owners and gave away some of our popular re-useable cotton bags. After the event, Dave said: “It was a very successful day – the weather was fantastic, and everyone enjoyed themselves in the sunshine while raising money for a good cause. It was great to meet some of our customers as well as helping people with their park home insurance queries. They were interested to know what to watch out for when buying park home insurance, and that Park Home Assist is a UK-based family-run firm that provides a personal service to park home owners.”
