I am gettng nowhere fast here in Bulgaria. We have to knock down the granny house and flatten out the land to rebuild but I just cannot get anyone here to help us. We need a JCB would be best to get one locally I will have to try the coporation company - Guess the price will double.

Poor you Berni, frustrating - unfortunately there doesn't appear to any hire shops here in BG, at least I haven't seen one yet!!

Unfortunately Robert (aged 39 years) passed away last month and his partner has been at the house to sell everything, what she wants to keep is coming back to the UK on Friday which includes the van in the link

Obviously some sad news, but does that mean the company has closed down or still open for business.

It might seem a hard time for them but unless you ask, you will never know.
Maybe it's been taken over or run by someone else.

Hi Phil
My property is only 200metres away from where Robert lived. I was with Marion (Roberts partner of 21 years) last week so I can confirm that the house will be kept but everything else has gone or will be returned to their home in Scotland. Marion and her Father leave tomorrow and will drive the van and tow the horse box back. I wish them well with their journey. Hope that helps folk T

Thanks for the update, maybe as it was something I was thinking about then maybe someone else may also have the same thought, which you have now answered them also.

Now I'm sorry if this also seems a bit crass, but if the equipment has been sold on (or whatever) maybe trying to find out who the new owner/s are might be helpful.
Not forgetting you may also be helping the new owners of the equipment.

I don't really think this would be encroaching on someone's grief, but if you never ask you will never know.

A good point Phil, I will see what I can find out, but we will have to wait as they start their drive back towing the horse box, they leave this morning and hope that the 2200 miles to Glasgow can be done in four days. Watch this space!!!! ::

We re into our 3rd week already here and still gettng nowhere. We need to build a decking, a garage combine storage space but just dn't know how to go about it all. The Bukider has not come back to quotes us. I don't know where to start, do we start with cleariing he land or getting the plans drawn up - I don't now who to contact just feeling very frustrated right now. i am a very sensable person normally but for the life of me I am finding things very hard. No doubt I will sort indue course but can't belive how frustratiing things can get, there really i big difference when you move to another country.

Hi Berni
Yes it does get a little frustrating, if the builder you have asked has not responded then locate another? A visit to local Municipality to the buildings office might be of use for builders, or locate a local architect, they usually have a list of builders they use? have a Bulgarian translator with you to make sure you understand what is going on.

The problem is most of them have moved on or returned to the uk because they couldn't make it here so there is very little to choose from now, Bulgarians are probably your best bet so long as they are good at what they do, perhaps ask the boss at Silistra.

I think the other problem is that not many Bulgarian trades people have a website and rely on word of mouth so perhaps asking the coordinator at Silistra might help. Good luck
