LPG Gas Check For Caravan?
Hope someone can help. I'll try and keep it brief.
I started a business last year running a tea room from a 1972 caravan. I am based in our local park at weekends and have permission from the council to be there. No mention of a Gas safety check.
However I have applied to go to a local music festival (different council)in the summer and they require proof of Gas Safety. I finally managed to find someone to come and do the check.
They came this morning and have stuck a sticker on saying it's not safe to use. They are quoting £500 plus VAT, plus call out charge, plus issue of certificate (so about £650 in total).
All I do is boil a kettle every half an hour. I don't have the funds (have been off all winter and this weekend was supposed to be my first week back) so don't know what I am going to do? The only appliance I have is the fitted gas stove.
Does this sound like a rip off?
Could I have the gas tapped off so I cant use it anymore, and then by a small camping gas stove and small gas bottle and boil my kettles that way? Would I need the same safety checks??? Or if I would I presume I wouldn't need all the work doing as all the pipework etc would be null and void?
Sorry didn't keep it that short!
Thanks in advance
