Why can I only book on Mondays and Fridays

PitStop Campers is a small business and at present due to also offering other services such as upholstery we are only able to have Campervan handovers on Mondays and Fridays. 

Collection & Drop Off

All CRAFTER hires have a pick up time of between 2pm & 3pm and a strict return time of between 9am & 10am on the last day of your hire. Please note that there will be charges applied for any late returns. 

We offer a door to door drop off service for West Lothian only however please note that you would not receive the vehicle until 5pm on the day of your departure and we would pick the vehicle up at 8am on your return day. This service is an additional £50 and will also incur additional charges if we are there to collect the vehicle at 8am and you are not yet ready to handover.

Pets & Smoking

Unfortunately we do not allow pets in our CRAFTER.

Strictly no smoking in the vehicles.
