Car Insurance Claims in Spain

Car insurance claims in Spain can very often be daunting.  Perhaps your car is insured by a Spanish insurer and you’re not comfortable  communicating with them, or perhaps you simply do not have the time.

Mizzfixit recently had a case of a poor lady whose husband was terminally ill in hospital.  One morning on the way to visit him, she had a small accident in the car.  Fortunately it was not her fault and she was not injured, but she really did not have the time or patience to deal with the claim.  She called Mizzfixit and she immediately took control.

Mizzfixit liaised with the insurer’s until the other driver’s insurance company accepted responsibility and then she arranged  for the car to be fixed.  All the lady had to do was bring the car to the garage for repair.  More on car insurance claims in Spain

Electricity Reconnection Marbella

Mizzfixit had an interesting case recently.  Some four years ago, a family who live in the UK had the electricity meter stolen from their property and they were left connected up to the street supply.  They had no idea of this as they only used the house for 6 weeks a year.  Eventually Endesa caught up with them and demanded just over 4000 euros in respect of usage relating to the previous 4 years.  Of course, they were completely shocked and argued that they only use the property for holidays.  The solution was reached by us providing the water bills which showed clearly from the consumption that what they said was true.  Endesa then agreed to reduce the debt by half.

The question arises as to how this family didn’t realise that no payments were coming out of their bank account for the electricity, but nothing surprises Mizzfixit any more!  In any case, they now have their electricity reconnected and we’re sure that they’ll be keeping a closer eye on things in the future.
