Responses –Registering  Vehicle Here

David’s query – they had to contact Torre Police – i.e. stand in a long queue and remember to go early.  One point though my friends were driving a Spanish car owned by them not a foreign vehicle.


Recommendation – Toldo

We have just bought one from Leroy Merlin and had the local estate agent fit it.
It is called Toldos and various widths and lengths are available.
Hope this helps.




Recommendation- Removals

We would like to recommend the services of Tony Roam ,who at a very reasonable price, has succeeded in moving all our worldly possessions from London to Torrox. He collected them, stored them for a month and then delivered them all in one piece to our now permanent residence in Torrox Pueblo.

David and Anne.


Recommendation- for Tony Roam

I would like to give a bouquet and round of applause to Tony Roam. I have now had two deliveries with Tony from the UK and could not be happier! He makes a run from Wales to the Axarquia monthly, on about the same date at the end of the month. You can send your packages to his address in Wales and he then brings everything himself here to Spain. He has made my life so much easier! I am now able to order from companies that do not ship to Spain, or charge an arm and a leg to do so. My goods always show up in tip-top shapeand for an excellent price. Can not suggest highly enough.

Recommendation- Kitchens

We have recently had a full refurbishment by heiko y  german @ hotmail.sp based in Algarrobo
We are so pleased with the standard/quality of workmanship too they are prompt efficient and provide an update at every stage.
There charges for the work and products were very acceptable too.



Recommendation Needed – Hotel in Benidorm

Could anyone out there in Digamextra land recommend a good mid range

hotel in Benidorm.

Maybe someone has spent Christmas or a special anniversary there and

have found a real gem of a place.

Please contact me on 652038386
Many thanks. Richard



Recommendation for Chimney Sweep

Diego arrived on time and did a brilliant job. Cleaned the chimney, refitted the anti-bird wire, advised we would need a new plate soon and gave us directions on where to buy one. Not a speck of soot left anywhere and he speaks good English. His details are Tel: 952515065
