Property Insurance

Can anybody recommend a good, english speaking property insurance company/agent/broker.
The renewal I have from a UK based broker for this coming year is almost as much as for my 'proper' house in England!

Sliding doors

Has anybody fitted sliding doors across a recess in a bedroom to make it into a wardrobe? (my next project!)

If so, where did you get the doors and other bits you used from?

Re: Latest scam - 'Late pickup charge'

I've used DoYouSpain for a number (7 - 8 years) and have come across this before, I don't think its a 'new' scam. It's usually stated in the General Conditions which are attached to the Booking Details.

Re: Car hire from OPGroup Algorfa

Take out some car hire excess insurance (about £40). Although you still have to leave a deposit and might initially have to pay out should you be unfortunate enought to have an accident, you then just claim it back.

Re: Any places buy second hand furniture?

Try here, we've sold stuff through them before. You wont get a fortune but they'll either come along and buy it off you, or take it and auction it off for you. Either way they will take it away for you which is half the problem!

Re: Wheels in Spain (Local Company)

Just used Wheels in Spain for the first time. As other people have said, all very straightforward, no hidden extras, no queing at a hire desk, nice friendly people etc. The only comment I would make (this may not affect everyone), part of the novelty for me of coming away on holiday is to be able to...

Can anybody recommend a local Builders Merchant (within 5 or 6 miles of Algorfa if possible).

Looking more for 'sand/gravel/cement' stockist rather than paint/decorating/screws and nails!
