Warning….Never Send Money by  Post

You should never send money through the post.
I am sorry for your little girl not getting what was sent to her
for her birthday but putting it in the post was a foolish thing to do.
There are a lot of dishonest people in this world and you should never trust anyone.
One way is to transfer money through a bank which is safer.

Can anyone advise where we can get a double glazing unit replaced in one of our large sliding windows.  The seal appears to have perished as there is water inside one of the panes.  We are based in Torrox Campo but can travel to nearby towns.
One of the Digamextra readers did provide a recommendation in April

however I have lost the details.  I would appreciate their advice again.

Services_Lacking- Airport Car Parking Horror

This message is purely to let others know my bad experience with a meet and greet parking company at Malaga Airport.
It is not to in any way have a go or slander this company- which I shall not name here – but feel free to ask me privately
I booked the parking online as usual, I met the parking rep’ at the airport and as normal sorted out the paperwork and paid for my parking upfront  which I never normally do I then gave him my car key and we carried on to Security.

On return our car wasn’t waiting for us (it usually is) I then phoned Parking Norte and I was told the driver would be with me soon. About 5 or 10 minutes later my car arrived rather quickly with the driver in a rush, he screeched to a halt in the car park he then got out and handed my key to me, I gave him 5€ tip.

Whilst he was talking to another client I had a quick look around my car to see if there was any damage. I couldn’t see anything obvious so we drove out.

Exiting the car park requires the driver to use the passenger mirror to watch for traffic coming from the right, I saw what looked like some kind of dirt on the mirror so I asked my wife to clean it for me.  Only it wasn’t dirt,  the mirror had been smashed.

I pulled on the roadside just outside the barrier and went back into the car park to look for the driver He had gone so I phoned the office only to be told to take a photo and send it to them. I told them I wanted someone to come and see this. They arrived 10 minutes later with the driver and I assume the manager. At first the manager, who spoke English tried to say I might have done it on the way out of the car park. After a while he agreed that it was their fault. Arrangements were made to have the mirror replaced at their expense.

The Manager some days later said he saw what had happened coming through their car wash, it was their fault and was very sorry they would pay for the repair. We feel the driver was fully aware of the damage but didn’t say anything to us when he dropped off the car (Deceitful ).
The company rep. came from Malaga to take the car to Ford on a Wednesday said it would be back later. It wasn’t. I was told it would be back Friday. No loan car offered.
This was a nightmare. They did get a new mirror fitted and they did bring my car back repaired but it was very stressful and, as I live in campo, I had no transport for 3 days.
This message is just to let others know and to make others aware that it’s very important to fully check your car before leaving the airport. It is not in any way to slander the company.  Email –  tom21hol@gmail.com
Contact me if you are about rent a car under similar circumstances.
