Recommendation Needed –Car Importation

We are about to start the process of importing our UK plated car and would be interested to hear recommendations.

We have done this before and has cost us on average around €1,100.

Anybody know of a company or individual who might be able to help us lower those costs?

Thank you in advance. littlenige at mail dot com



Response… Pet friendly Hotels

For those looking for Pet friendly hotels links provided below, also the main hotel booking sites (booking.com –hotels.com  tripadvisor.co.uk etc) have a pet friendly filter once you enter a date and destination,





I recommend checking out the hotel reviews on tripadvisor whichever booking site you use, personally I only use these sites to find my hotel I then deal direct with my chosen hotel. Haydn


Response   Electric Components

Have you tried the shop opposite the older Mercadona on Calle Pescia?  They have lots of bits and bobs like parts for computers, etc.

Good luck.

Kurt and Laura



Response / Water Services

Ref : Water service

If the problem has not been resolved.

The valve that was replaced. was it a foot valve?

is the pump you refer too the domestic pump from the deposito to the property ? or a pump filling the deposito?

if it is a pump refilling the deposito ? it could be a float switch sticking.

That would make sense from your description.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
