    Hi all,

    I would be grateful for your opinions, experience and information.


    For the last 7 years we have stored our unit in Camping Los Gallardos, near Mojacar in Almeria. The closest airport to the site from Scotland was Murcia but as most budget airlines don't fly there in the winter, we need to fly to Alicante and have an expensive one way car hire fee.


    Do any Funsters know of any secure storage near Malaga?, as the public transport is far superior!


    I would prefer on site storage I.E in a compound on a camp site as this is what I have at Camping Los Gallardos. we have seen Malaga Monte Parc but you store on the pitch which means all visitors can snoop around your unit.


    Thanks in anticipation




    Jim

    DO NOT FOLLOW THIS MAN ANYWHERE !!! :Doh:

    Bill, he wants MALAGA.. :Wink:

    I used this back in feb 2013 when we came back for 4 days..
    http://www.areasac.es/v_portal/apartados/apartado.asp?te=2169

    From memory it was about 25 euro BUT Bloody taxi there and back cost me €35-40 rip off taxis !!!
    It was a bit rough and ready, like most in Spain.

    I did enquire with Camping Torromolinos and they did some storage and there is a train station not far away that goes to the airport.
    Did not get to try that one but may try and check it out next time I am down there..

    hi cant give you the name of the place but if you were to walk to the sea right out of the malaga airport road direct . there is a place down there that stores and keeps motor homes there . its between the n340 and the ap7 roads . not far from the leroy merlin shop .
    inland from guadalmar.
    you could walk to the airport easily i would say .

    Edited to add, this location appears to be on the RIGHT as you head towards the sea?

    its actually been there years at least 6-7 . i couldnt find it at first it tricked me . its not a field . as you can see its full of vehicles . i know it like the back of my hand but dont know the street names . been interesting . there is a leroy merlin and other stuff just a street away . we have spent lots time around there . had my old axles remachined in a machine shop two doors from my mates garage . theres also a cheap diesel place at san julian . its used by trucks etc . all a bit of a dusty area but industrial estate parking if waiting for friends to fly in to malaga makes it handy as well.
