On the evening of Saturday 31st October, the government announced a new lockdown from 5th November 2020. This will naturally affect the way in which Lee Davey Caravans can trade until such time as the restrictions are lifted.
Our foremost concern will continue to be that of operating within all the COVID-19 safe practices that have become second nature in these difficult times. This will ensure that the staff, customers and anyone else that visit our premises stay safe and well.
The workshop will continue to repair and service the many caravans that are scheduled to be attended to in November. The aftersales team will be available on the telephone and via their email from Monday to Friday to address any issues or bookings required by customers.
The caravan sales department, which has experienced a record-breaking start to the 2021 season, will support our two manufacturers Bailey and Coachman by continuing to accept the deliveries of new caravans which the government has encouraged them to produce. This will help to guarantee the supply of caravans to the many customers that have already ordered their new model and any future buyers. Staff will be available 7 days a week to answer calls or emails regarding any aspects of purchasing caravans whether new or used.
The leisure shop will be able to supply goods from Calor gas to toilet chemicals subject to the use of ‘Click and Collect’. Please call 01622 859301 with any questions on how we can help with your needs over the next few weeks.
Finally, I would like to thank all our customers for their amazing support in recent times and hope you all stay well and safe.
Patrick Willoughby - General Manager
Welcome to Lee Davey Caravans
Lee Davey Caravans was established way back in 1948 by Mr Lionel Edward Davey, a squadron leader in the RAF during the Second World War ‘Lee’ was educated at Kings School Rochester and brought up on a diet of cars, motorbikes and engines as his father owned a number of local garages.
The Company situated in the centre of Kent near the county town of Maidstone is easily accessible from the main A20 just off the M20. Over the years the company has grown its reputation in the caravanning community as a reliable business with quality vans as well as many other products that enhance the freedom owning a caravan can bring.
