New Versus Preowned Holiday Homes – What Is Right For You?

Searching for your perfect seaside sanctuary and got your sights set on one of Beverley’s holiday homes available for sale? Our fabulous range of holiday caravans and lodges are hard to beat, many boasting stunning ocean aspects and use of our fabulous array of facilities as part of your ownership package. Our preloved models are a great option if you dipping your toe into holiday home waters for the first time, while our brand new offerings promise a pristine holiday home fresh off the peg.

But while buying your own holiday home is an exciting proposition, with so many aspects to consider, it is all too easy to feel overwhelmed with the process. At Beverley Holidays in Torbay, we’re here to make the journey as exciting and stress-free as possible, so we’ve put together some top pointers on the benefits of purchasing new versus preowned holiday homes…

Benefits Of Buying Brand New

Customised Just For You

When you buy a holiday caravan or holiday lodge from new, you have the option to customise it to your liking. That means you can add a beautiful wrap-around decking of your exact specification, where you can sit back on a Summer’s evening soaking up the holiday atmosphere over a glass of something bubbly. And speaking of bubbles, there’s also the option to add a hot tub when you buy brand new, plus speak to us about how you’d like to accessorize or furnish your holiday home in a way that best suits you.

Worry-free Warranty

Another advantage of buying from brand new is that the holiday home of your dreams will be covered under a manufacturer’s warranty. Although the chances of something going askew in a pristine new caravan or lodge is highly unlikely, investing in something as big as a holiday home can be nerve-wracking and the warranty offers peace of mind and protection against any issues that might need ironing out at the beginning.

Technology Fans Rejoice

If having a holiday home boasting the latest up-to-date technology is top of your wish list, brand new is the choice for you. Our modern range of holiday caravans and lodges come equipped with the very latest mod cons, including cutting-edge appliances and entertainment systems, so you can sit back and let the technology do all the work. Take our brand new holiday home development on Beverley Park for example, the holiday homes here enjoy use of a newly-installed EV charging point.

Lower Maintenance Costs

As you’ll be buying from brand new, your holiday home will require less maintenance in the immediate future, as all the parts and systems will have only just been installed. This means you can enjoy your holiday caravan or lodge without having to worry about any repairs or upgrades, leaving you to spend those extra pennies on a meal out in our sea view Jetty Restaurant, Terrace & Bar or a day exploring the English Riviera.

Better Resale Value

As you’re only just at the beginning of your Beverley journey, it can be strange to think about the time when you might reach the end. But it’s well worth remembering that when buying a holiday home from new, it will have a higher resale value than a used one as it has not depreciated over time. This means you can recoup more of your investment if you decide to sell your holiday home in the future, perhaps upgrading to another new model so you can enjoy the above advantages all over again!


New Versus Preowned Holiday Homes

Benefits of Buying Preowned

Best For Budget 

Budget is of course a major consideration when choosing a holiday home. With preowned caravans starting from as little as £30,000, you are sure to secure your home from home at the best price, with our flexible finance options, sub-letting scheme and part exchange scheme giving you many more ways to bring your holiday home dream to life. But just because our preowned models are best for budget doesn’t mean it’ll come at a cost to your holiday home experience, with owners treated to a wealth of Beverley benefits regardless of whether they opt for new or preloved.

Availability Means Flexibility

The availability of stock is something that will undoubtedly influence your purchasing decision. It’s worth keeping in mind that we have more preowned holiday homes available than new models, with the higher availability of preowned stock giving you more choice. So if you’re keen to keep your options open and window shop a whole host of possible holiday homes, preowned is the perfect choice for you.

Perfect For Pets & Kids

If you have children or pets, you may feel more relaxed in a preowned model. There’s nothing worse than when you purchase something brand spanking new, only for grubby paws or muddy fingers to make their mark. Our preloved caravans are by nature a little more lived in, and so those looking to holiday with their little ones or four-legged friends in tow, you might prefer something a little less pristine. But don’t forget, all of our holiday homes come fully serviced and cleaned to the highest standards before you buy.

Warranty Reassurance

At Beverley Holidays, we are proud to offer a 12-month warranty when purchasing a used model which provides you with plenty of peace of mind in your first year as a holiday home owner. Knowing that your preloved holiday caravan or lodge is totally taken care of under our warranty schemes mean you can simply sit back and enjoy the holiday home ownership life with not hidden expenses along the way.
