Caravan Business enters administration
Administrators from DL Partnership have been appointed over Dickinson Caravans Ltd. The company ceased to trade at the end of January 2020.
Dickinson’s was established over 40 years ago, has remained family run throughout and was very well regarded by both the industry and customers alike. The majority of the trading has been from the landmark site on Canal Road, Bradford.
The Joint Administrator, Sarah Long commented “The family have worked tirelessly to stave off this day however the business suffered due to challenging trading conditions. To protect customers and suppliers the directors took the difficult, but necessary, decision to cease trading prior to our appointment. We are now actively marketing the assets for sale and have appointed Walker Singleton as our agents to assist us.”
Howard Eastwood, Director in the Machinery & Business Assets Department at Walker Singleton commented “The business offered a complete service to customers from sales of new and used caravans and accessories through to an equipped service workshop. We are currently preparing an auction sale of the assets that will take place over forthcoming weeks.” He added “it is perhaps a reflection of the respect and recognition within the industry that we have already been contacted by several parties wanting to explore acquisition of property, stocks and aspects of the trading brand. Open marketing will ensure transparency and that fullest value for the creditors is recovered.”
