As a family run business, we aim to provide an extensive range of static & touring caravan spares & accessories, alongside good quality leisure products & hardware supplies.
Our family has been involved with tourism on Lincolnshire's east coast since the 1950s when our Great-Grandparents started selling refreshments from a small snack bar, to day trippers who were alighting from the buses that pulled into Ingoldmells village centre. In the 1960s and 1970s our parents worked hard to build on that business and were soon running a busy restaurant, newsagents and a petrol station and workshop. The business was incorporated in 1976 and BEC (Ingoldmells) Ltd was formed.
From selling just a few caravan accessories and spares from the forecourt shop, our retail premises and warehouse in Ingoldmells now holds a huge range of touring and static caravan spares and from here we supply not only the general public but caravan maintenance engineers and caravan parks. Alongside the essential caravan items, we have a comprehensive range of tools and hardware products. We also offer a key cutting service and are Calor Gas suppliers.
Since 2012 we have had an outlet on Victoria Road, Mablethorpe, which we open from March to October. Although a smaller premises, we still offer a comprehensive range of spares and accessories and are more than happy to transport items from Ingoldmells to Mablethorpe, for those customers who can’t travel to our main shop.
Unusually for a seasonal seaside business, we do stay open throughout the winter at Ingoldmells. We like to think that it means we can provide local home-owners with the option to shop locally for their hardware, housewares and small appliance requirements and it also means we can offer year-round employment to our staff. With this in mind, our main site at Ingoldmells is open 6 days a week throughout the year (7 days at peak times) with the exception of a 3 week closure over Christmas & New Year.
