As a pensioner, I am obliged to watch the pennies. Finding S.E.A., I was able to reduce the cost of the documentation for a vehicle transfer of ownership. S.E.A. saved me a substantial sum, and I am grateful for this. The service could not have been better. Fast, efficient and effective in all aspects. Their customer service in probably the best I have encountered in my twenty two years in Spain. I look forward to using the service again should it become necessary and highly recommend it to anyone. Thanks Del...top man!

I was selling my car, moving countries and Del made the process very easy, especially when it got complicated with road tax arrears I wasn’t aware of. Admin nightmare, made easy. Thanks a million for all your help.

I used SEA to register a car I had purchased in Spain. All done on line, apart from picking up the log book from the post office. All straight forward and good value. The last time I did it through a third party and cost my time and 300 euros!

Del made change of ownership of my car simple and easy. Would highly recommend using SEA if you are not confident to do it yourself. Only downside was the crazy tax on ownership change!

Incredible! I couldn't be more impressed with SEA. I was buying a Spanish reg car in the UK, and needed to get all the paperwork for the transfer done online. Once I'd cobbled together the info they needed, the actual transfer was done in a couple of hours. Anyone who's had to deal with DGT in person will know what a godsend this is!

VEHICLES

CAR OWNERSHIP TRANSFER – €60 (plus official fees)

We can transfer car ownership in Spain (transferencia o cambio de titularidad del vehículo), totally remotely. We take care of all the paperwork and change ownership the same day. The new Permiso de Circulación is back in about a week. All done online without you having to travel anywhere. Simple! Email us to get started.

ITV / MOT – €40

Taking the ITV test can be a stressful thing at the best of times, even more so when you don’t speak the language well. We can get appointments much quicker than the general public and take care of the whole procedure from pick up to drop off. If the ITV is overdue, we can provide special plates and insurance if you want.

SPANISH PLATES / IMPORTING – From €625

We can register your car in Malaga & the Costa del Sol from another EU country. With contacts at ITV and Trafico, we take the stress out of the matriculation process. The Police are clamping down on foreign cars being driven in Spain – register your car as soon as possible. Prices start from €625 + taxes. We can also get green plates for you. PLEASE NOTE, WE ARE NO LONGER IMPORTING UK CARS.

SPANISH DRIVING LICENCE – €150 (incl. taxes)

We can exchange a UK driving licence to a Spanish one if you can come into our Torremolinos office. We take care of all the paperwork and trips to Trafico. 

* Note* Your UK driving licence has to be dated before your Spanish residency began. We can do it with expired UK licences.

VEHICLE REPORT (INFORME VEHICULO) – €15 

If you want to check a car before you buy it then a vehicle report (informe vehiculo) is advised. This report can give you a lot of information about the vehicle helping you make an informed decision.

It can save you time and money by letting you know if the vehicle is in a position to be transferred into your name. Also if there are any problems with the vehicle the seller may not have disclosed, such as fines, embargoes, financing etc. Request a report here.

BAJA (VEHICLE DE-REGISTRATION) €55

We can de-register your vehicle to export to a different country (baja por exportación) or temporarily (baja temporal) if you are not going to use it for a while. This ensures it will not be impounded and exempts you from paying road tax (IVTM). 

SALE NOTIFICATION (NOTIFICACIÓN DE VENTA) €55

If you sell a car, it’s advisable to make a sale notification. This is because it is getting more common for buyers not to transfer ownership. This leads to the seller being responsible for any fines etc that are incurred after the sale.

Surprisingly simple transfer procedure of car ownership title after I spent several days trying to work out what was needed and all at a fair price too. I think I must have been lucky to upload the required documents and make the appropriate payment about midday then get the provisional document back within a few hours. Del was very helpful. Thanks

NIE / TIE / SOCIAL SECURITY ETC

NIE / TIE / RESIDENCY – FROM €120

The law is constantly changing regarding residency. We have up to date information and can apply for you, even while you’re in the UK, speeding up the process and cutting out the stress of dealing with the Spanish bureaucratic system.

DIGITAL NOMAD VISA – €450

The Spanish Digital Nomad Visa enables non-EU citizens to work in Spain remotely. It also allows you to bring your spouse and children with you. It has various tax benefits and can lead to a 5 year residency permit. Up to 20% of your earned income can be with a Spanish company.

SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER – €60

A social security number is necessary to work and live in Spain, as well as to access the healthcare system. You need to have NIE first and then we will accompany you and get it the same day.
