energiaxx Overvoltage - Can I claim for items destroyed - 8 replies

mikej Posted by mikej in Utilities: Electric, gas and water recommendations and advice in Vera on Thu Feb 15, 2024 8:34pm

First smoke came out of the dishwasher.

Then there was a bang and the microwave went off.

I put the power back on and checked the voltage it was 420V i..e double what it should be. Reported this to the company and nothing happened until late. This morning voltage is back to normal but we have dead dishwasher, TV, computer printer, microwave etc. 

Can we claim from the electricity company for the damage and if so how?

We dont have insurance.

Insurance - a POSITIVE review - 15 replies

DarioMartin Posted by DarioMartin in Insurances and wills advice in Vera on Thu Feb 15, 2024 2:23pm

Many people ask which insurance is right for them, their car etc.  as I am with Linea Directa, I always advise to try them - it helps they have a dedicated English helpline.

Now their prices are good and it’s easy to contract online - but naysayers have in the past sneered “yeah, well wait until you try to make a claim - they are a nightmare”

So at the end of January, whilst parked up at a friends private residence, I managed to reverse my car into their concrete fountain.  Don’t ask.  Yes, I was sober, no I hadn’t had a thing to drink, and no, of course I didn’t see it!!

Their prized concrete fountain, worth around 1.000€ lay in jigsaw puzzle sized pieces, my car had a smashed light and a hefty dent in the tailgate.

So. Insurance.  I have the Linea Directa app and I was able to file the claim via the app, and select a garage to take the car to.  Línea Directa rang me the next day to confirm some details and advise that if the garage did not have a courtesy car available, I could get one from them for up to 21 days, all included in my insurance.  They also told me that as I had paid full renewal price they were waiving the 240€ excess.

I took my car to Talleres y Gruas Azor in Vera, a Linea Directa approved garage.  They took pictures and said they would send this off to Linea Directa and advise me when they were able to proceed.  On Tuesday 13th February they called and said they had a courtesy car available, and I agreed to take it in Wednesday morning.  I dropped it off at about 09:30 Wednesday 14th, got the courtesy car and received a link that I could use to follow progress of repair.

THIS MORNING, Thursday 15th February, one day after dropping it off, I got a call.  Car was ready!!  So I went off, handed back courtesy car and drove away in my now repaired car … no nonsense, no fuss, no drama, no payment at all, and the car looked like new again.

My friend sent a quote for damage to fountain to Linea Directa using my reference number, and they are covering that as well!!

SO, in short, a very positive experience with Spanish Insurance, very very simple to arrange, and completely free of any of the bureaucracy, drama, angst or delays one normally associates with getting anything done here.

So if anybody is looking for insurance … I can certainly recommend Linea Directa!!

One is a Court I believe and the other with very Gaudi-esque balconies and other features is ,I think, an... apartment block with a modern sports center could that have been allowed? Arrrgh. I hope my spelling is correct.a.

Digimobil activates 5G network - 2 replies

DarioMartin Posted by DarioMartin in Broadband Internet, Wifi, Phone and TV in Vera on Mon Feb 12, 2024 7:11pm

For anyone wanting good mobile phone networks, Digimobil have announced that they have just activated their 5G network.  All that’s needed is one of their mobile plans (pre-paid or contract), a compatible device and to be in a 5G zone.

I have an iPhone 12 and two weeks ago, the 5G option wasn’t showing.  After reading their announcement, I checked my phone and sure as nuts, 5G option now available.  Selected, and now on 5G in Vera.

if you are an existing Digimobil mobile customer and you have a compatible device, it’s already automatically available to you - you don’t need to contact the network and ask them to switch anything on, just enable it in device settings.
