As I am sure you know, Andalusia is unique, it is a special place, it has something that makes it quite different from anywhere you have ever been before and yet, it feels welcoming and familiar. This was one of the many reasons that made me decide to come and live here.
Nevertheless, I did have some problems when I first arrived, mainly due to my limited command of Spanish. It isn’t the same to speak in your own language as in another that you are only just beginning to get familiar with. This was part of my difficulty when looking for a handyman to repair the breakages caused by my young son.
One of the most common problems for foreigners everywhere is that you can always be taken advantage of, whether you are charged extra costs above what was originally agreed or simply more than the real market price. This is why I took the decision to use Plan Living Solutions, which not only offered a good price, but something I value more: speed and convenience.
In my view, there is no point in buying something cheap if it is of low quality.
And in this case, quality includes speed and convenience. Another aspect to consider is that this person will be in your home, and for this reason, and even more so if you are living in a foreign country, you need a company to back you up and to give you security, guarantees and above all, trust.
This is what convinced me to choose Plan Living Solutions, as they organised everything simply and quickly and I didn’t have to worry about anything, all I had to do was open the door to the handyman! I didn’t even have to be with him while he was working; I let him get on with the job while I was comfortably watching TV, and believe me, this is invaluable.
It is also worth mentioning what my Spanish friends told me about this kind of trade, i.e. that plumbers, locksmiths and electricians tend to be very expensive in Spain, yet in my case, the service provided was very reasonably priced.
However, I would repeat that for me, it is not the price that is of most importance, but speed, convenience and trust. To feel protected in a foreign country is something that I really appreciate. For this reason, I would definitely know where to go if anything else happens.
