Re: Money transfers

The initial deposit payment went into our La Caixa account which cost us nothing. We transferred this to KC Sabadell account, which La Caixa charged €3 for, their standard charge for every transaction, as it was Spanish to Spanish accounts. We have not closed the account as there may be outstanding ...

Re: Money transfers

Sorry for not getting back on earlier but things have been a bit hectic. Eventually went with Key Currency, quite a small outfit based in Truro but with good reviews. Set up an account with them by phone before we went over, then went to our La Caixa branch in Es Migjorn and transferred the sale dep...

Re: Selling a car

Thanks. We are hoping that FRAMA will take the car and complete the necessary paperwork there and then.

Re: Selling a car

Thanks guys. I just found an old thread from 2005 that suggests FRAMA on the Mahon poligono. Do you know if this is still an option?

Thanks Slartibartfast. Where did you go to scrap it? As I said, the car is only with a few hundred €, but we are prepared to scrap it as long as we can be sure that it is actually scrapped with the relevant documentation completed rather than slyly put back on the road.

Our problem now concerns the car we have out there. Selling a car over t...

Re: Money transfers

Thanks Kieran
Do you know if the Spanish banks charge anything when you make the transfer of funds to e.g. Transferwise?
