About Us

Swift Caravan Services, formerly Hardings, is a family owned and operated business dedicated to caravanners. Through our fifty years of industry and on road experience we have developed an understanding of the needs of our clients.

Be it through caravan service, repair, insurance repairs and caravan storage, our aim is to provide a level of service and quality that will exceed your expectations.

Andrew Gallop who has worked in the organisation since the early 90’s brought the business from the Hardings family almost 20 years ago. Andrew has an engineering background and also worked in the caravan industry in the UK.

Andrew relocated the business to its current site at Colchester Road about 12 years ago. This was also when Swift started their storage business which now works across 2 sites at Kilsyth and Hastings. At the same time a purpose-built facility was built with 10 dedicated insurance bays, 5 specialised caravan hoists for caravan servicing and plenty of room for customers when arriving.

Andrew and his staff pride themselves on keeping abreast of changes within the industry and being capable of new challenges that they face as caravans become more sophisticated.

All staff at Swift Caravan Services are from a trade that relates to their area of work within the business.

Our team at Swift Caravan Services, formerly Hardings, are a combined workforce of over twenty employees with years of varied experience between them under the leadership of owner Andrew Gallop.
