Re: Car Hire Malaga Airport

Interesting stories. I'm not sure I would be brave enough to do that. If somebody was going to charge me EUR 10 or less for a weeks car hire, I would feel sure they had some scheme to scam some real money out of me some other way, as obviously the €1.50 or €6.50 does not cover their expenses. You ap...

Re: ITV Documents

I tried three stations yesterday, and was so surprised I got the same date "suggested" for all of them (March 5). I see there are other stations too, but they're getting further and further away from me, so not very convenient. Thank you for the suggestion regarding calling. I tried callin...

Re: ITV Documents

Are you sure about the date on which it expires? Try installing the ITV app. Once you have entered the details of the vehicle it shows the date of expiry of the current ITV. There may be some kind of mix-up over the date of expiry. I was not able to bring my car up on that app, possibly due to me e...

Re: ITV Documents

Guess so. I thought it might be an error or misunderstanding on my part at first, since both centers showed first available date exactly one month after my itv expires, but seems not. Next year I'll have to do what you do then.

Re: ITV Documents

I'm trying to make an appointment for my car via itvcita.com. The cars paper say the itv is valid to 05-02-2020. First I tried the station in Mijas. After entering plate number and VIN, it "recommends" me the date March 5, which is one month after expiration. If I click the option to chose...

Re: electrician for small repair job in Benalmadena

Thanks, I did that and somebody came out and fixed it. They did a decent job, but were too expensive for me to recommend myself. Mainly I got miffed about them wanting EUR 25 to deliver "when they happen to pass by for other work nearby" a couple of small fuses that are necessary, and whi...

Re: electrician for small repair job in Benalmadena

Well, being too stupid too speak the country's language yet, I guess I got what I deserved and paid through the nose?. Anyway, I don't have preference for a British electrician at all, just at the moment I need (needed) someone who speaks at least some English unfortunately. If somebody has a recomm...

electrician for small repair job in Benalmadena

The heavy rain the last few days seems to have shorted something, somewhere. I'm guessing it's something outside as I've disconnected everything inside that was connected via that fuse, but it's still constantly tripping. Can anyone recommend an electrician, preferably near Benalmadena? Unfortunatel...

Re: water cooler/water dispenser in Malaga?

Should anyone else be interested, I ended up ordering from this company: https://simex.es/producto/fuentes-de-ag ... -plastico/

They shipped it promptly and for a reasonable fee. Product seems to be good too.

Re: agent to receive shipment at Malaga port

Thanks. They gave a more competent impression than anyone else I talked to and would be who I'd chose to use if I had gone ahead. In the end I had to abandon the idea though, as I'd end up paying at least t 10 times as much in shipping and fees as I paid for the bed itself several years ago, and tha...

Re: water cooler/water dispenser in Malaga?

Not too sure, but don't you go to a distributor (with vans) who deliver water in BIG plastic containers for fitting to chillers/dispensers that they "loan" to you? Mostly found in commercial offices/hairdressers etc? Less usual in domestic situations. Yeah, but one should be able to find ...

water cooler/water dispenser in Malaga?

Anyone know where I can find one? Tried Leroy Merlin and shops near IKEA, and also some others, but not found one. One lady in a small shop seemed to want to suggest where I could go, so I'm thinking it's possible to find here, but unfortunately I could not understand her. Thinking of ordering from ...
