Default Buying a car...

After what seems like years of planning and inertia, we've finally got most of our ducks in a row and will be emigrating from the UK to Spain on 3rd September.

As early retirees (not looking to work / not eligible for an S1 yet) we have an 11 month rental in Moraira and the objective is to gain residency and exchange drivers licences before 31st Dec. I have the Salus Health Insurance forms ready to email over and will have a lump sum to transfer once we're opened a bank account.

Now that the TIE has replaced the NIE and the lead time is significantly longer, how would I be able to buy a car shortly after arriving as I understand you need a NIE/TIE for that ?

The alternative is to hire a car for a fairly long time (months?) so do you know a rental company in or around Moraira who doesn't charge "airport" rates for long term rentals ?

For a Brucie Bonus, can you recommend a removal company to ship part of a household (no beds/lounge suites etc, mostly personal items) approx 16m3 from Milton Keynes to Moraira ?

Thanks in anticipation

TIE has NOT replaced NIE. You need both but have to get your NIE first. Absolutely NOTHING is Spain can happen without your important NIE number.
Suggest you use the services of a gestor has or lawyer to arrange this for you. It doesn’t take long and then, and only then, you can get the TIE sorted as well as buying a car and opening bank accounts.
Believe it is possible to get NIE in England.

To save time you could get an NIE number from the Spanish Embassy in London.
I made an appointment ..but when I got there quite a few people hadn´t but they were still let in.
As far as I can remember i just needed my passport, told them I was looking to buy a property in Spain, paid about 8 quid and got my number in the post at my UK address a few days later.

You don't need a NIE first. You are issued a NIE when making the TIE application if you don't already have one.

Is it still ex15 for a NIE?

I know EX18 is now EX23 for UK applicants but what about just for a NIE?

If applying for just an NIE in theUK then it is EX15

The EX18 is something to do with residency and possibly does include applying for a new NIE number.

I am in the process of applying for my TIE...and had to complete EX20 for the first stage. Now I am waiting for a decision, and if everything is ok I have to make an appointment at the Police station to have my thumb/fingerprints taken as well as complete Form EX23

For removals, Google Rawhide Removals.
They're based locally.
I've used them for a full house removal within Spain and to transport goods that I bought in the UK. Satisfied with both price and service.
