From repairs, servicing and MOTs to customisation and motorhome rentals, The Motorhome Repair Centre is Scotland’s No 1 choice for keeping you on the road in safety and comfort.
High quality servicing and repairs of your caravan or motorhome will pay off in the long run with greater reliability and performance and improved resale value.
We deal with everything from minor repair work and simple scuffs through to the comprehensive restoration of structural damage.
At The Motorhome Repair Centre, all body repairs are handled efficiently and affordably. Our experts have over 30 years experience in the vehicle accident repair industry and have built a business with an unrivalled reputation for technical expertise and quality of service.
For non-fault insurance claims, we can work with your assessor at every stage and undertake caravan repairs at zero cost to you. This leaves you free to start planning your next journey without worrying about micro-managing the insurance claim process. All body and paintwork is completed by our own skilled technicians. Unlike cars, most caravans do not have paint codes and the quality of colour matching becomes a skill only learned through years of experience. This experience is also essential when applying the colour to your van to ensure an invisible finish to the repair.
Your motorhome represents a considerable investment so when it comes to the all-important servicing, MOTs and habitation checks, don’t leave anything to chance. At the Motorhome Repaire Centre, we offer a full range of Motorhome, Campervan and Caravan servicing, habitation inspections, damp tests, MOT and repairs including:
Fitting in the annual checks may seem like an inconvenience, so why not make them part of your holiday itinerary? You can drop your vehicle off with us and have a day or two sightseeing in Glasgow while we make sure your motorhome is safe and serviced for the year ahead.
Christophe and Martine Boiron did just that! They travelled all the way from France in their Motorhome and we carried out the Annual Habitation Check and MOT while they enjoyed some shopping and sightseeing in Glasgow. When it was ready, they picked up their Motorhome and carried on their tour of Scotland – what a great idea!
If it’s not detected and remedied in time, water ingress can become a very expensive repair. All motorhomes, regardless of model or age, can be susceptible to damp.
Manufacturers recommend that a damp check carried out at least once a year. This simple check can help prolong the life and serviceability of your motorhome whilst also helping to maintain a pleasant and comfortable holidaying environment.
The only way damp can be detected is by using a protimeter, the industry’s recognised tool for the job. This should be used by engineers who are trained and experienced in damp repairs.

Success (at last)! I took my Chieftain out for a run (40 miles) to check the diesel filter yesterday and it was bone dry! Thank you so much for listening and addressing the problem. Please say thanks to David & his Dad too for supporting and advising me since the first day. Regards Joan Brown & Elaine
