  1. I have been using Wise (formerly Transfer Wise) monthly for more than five years and I have been very pleased.
  2. We have used Edgar for four or five years. He does a good job and the dog likes him. He comes to your home and grooms your pet there.
  3. I just purchased a hearing aid from Doctor Carlos Alonso Flores. His contact information is in one of the above posts. Although I did purchase Oticon his first suggestion was not Oticon but a model that had all the features I requested - rechargeable batteries and Blue Tooth. The reason I choose an Oticon model was because it had 48 channels to work with for optimum tuning. The highly optioned other brand he had suggested had 8 channels to work with. When I received the hearing aids Doctor Carlos made an appointment for one week later to answer any questions I might have. I currently have the level one hearing aid setting. The change to level two and three are each 60 days apart. The appointment for level two has been set. I am very pleased with the Doctor Carlos, the service and quality of product I purchased.
  4. I've been told that S&S has a Canadian bank account. You can just transfer the money from your Canadian account to theirs.
  5. The time it takes to receive your money through TransferWise decreases the longer you use their service. In the beginning it took 2-3 days, then 1-2 days, then same day. Now I receive the money in hours and lately in seconds. You close their app after you made the transfer, go to BBVA and the money is already there. Love their service.
  6. https://transferwise.com We have been using TransferWise every month for years. Money from USA and Canada directly into our BBVA account.
  7. This is available off and on at Gourmet Garage, Ponchos and Super Lake. I'm Canadian and grew up with Kraft 1000 Islands. Ken's might even be a little better.
  8. Brain has completed our Canadian NR tax returns online and we never left the house. Brian did a great job and I can highly recommend him.
  9. Ordered ground coffee this morning by WhatsApp and it was delivered to Chapala Haciendas in two hours. Great service.
  10. I use Line2 https://www.line2.com. Like Ooma you can choose any city, record your own voice mail message, etc, etc.
  11. I have being using US Global Mail for many years and I am very satisfied with the service. They will even deposit a check you receive into your US Bank. https://www.usglobalmail.com/pricing/
  12. Three years ago I sold my 2004 NAFTA car with expired Canadian plates to a Mexican friend. He drove it to the border and imported the car. It took him two days. He paid sales tax, duties, etc. He also had to do something with the car in Guadalajara after he returned. I purchased the car back a month later. Not cheap but it can be done.
  13. I have used Halls a few times and was very happy with the repair and service. They pick up and deliver at IShop.
  14. Just to be clear this is the link - https://www.usglobalmail.com
  15. We have used US Globalmail for the last 4 years and are very happy. Excellent customer service.
  16. The Apple rep who comes to IShop each week is from http://www.hall.com.mx. Phone 333 630-1010 or email clarisa@hall.com.mx to set up an appointment to meet at IShop. They replaced my iPhone 6 battery last month.
  17. Mainecoons did you find out where and when Hall will be in the Lake Chapala area? I have an iPhone 6 that needs the battery replaced.
  18. Dave Paterson 333 398-8868 does taxes for many of the Canadian expats. He has done our taxes for the last 6 years.
  19. If you have a flight from Guadalajara that arrives in Mexico City at 10:15pm will the INM office be open? The direct flight to Toronto leaves at 1am.
  20. Thank you barcelonaman! I knew there had to be away to stop UNO TV spam.
  21. Yesterday I noticed a rental posted in the Haciendas Office for $600 per month. You can call the office at 376 765-4045 and ask for the phone number on the posting.
  22. Just a $199.00 per month Telcel plan. No phone.
  23. I had the same experience a few years ago when we signed up for a $199.00 Telcel plan. No big deal but I was also surprised.
