Re: Seven and a half ton box vans

I don't know about hiring in Spain, but in UK now with the 7.5 tonner having a digital tacho, some of the hire companies will not hire to anyone who does not have a digital drivers card.

Re: Jimbothescot e-mail address

Still covering most of mainland Spain from Costa del Sol, right up the coast to Valencia and inland to Extremadura. Prices vary from where collection point is in UK and what volume is being transported. I've never been the cheapest but I'm not the most expensive either. Travel to anywhere in England...

Re: Van hire for removals

Enrique, I have finally worked out the connection between your user name and e mail address.

To all other members,please remember that your user name and your e mail address very often are completely different and is often very confusing to try and work out the connection.

There are a lot of discounted fuel stations in France now around the ring roads and often just outside the ports. An Esso station on the outskirts of Ouistreham (Caen), I filled up the lorry at €1-20 for diesel two weeks ago. There is an Esso station as you leave the port at Cherbourg with similar p...

I am not the cheapest removal firm out there, but I`m certainly not the dearest. my prices are middle of the range. A good removal service is also not only about price, it`s about turning u...

Re: Possibility of getting a mortgage?

A friend of mine has just bought a bank repo in Huercal Overa.

3 bed apartment 5th floor, bank wanted €30,000, she offered €25,000. Bank refused it but accepted €26,000.

Needs a bit of work as the previous owner stripped out all the lights and hot water cylinder but still a good buy.
