There’s an awful lot of an acronyms out there, some more important than others, i.e. the SAS could be considered more important than the BBC at some point in our lives, so when you see ‘TIBA’ staring back at you from a newspaper ad or on a car sticker you may be wondering what it is?
Well I’ll tell you anyway…You see TIBA isn’t a TV broadcaster or a tactical military squad but it does stand for something else that may well be of help one day, (although they wont wear the balaclavas), and that is a group of small businesses who work together to offer professional services. All of TIBA’s members come with recommendations and a history of satisfied customers behind them – HERE on the Costa Blanca which from most peoples’ experience is priceless.
Peach of Mind. TIBA members have learnt through experience that it is important for their customers to have peace of mind and be confident in whom they are dealing with and the TIBA members want the same. They want to be welcomed into your house, satisfied that you are not worried they will run off with the family silver while leaving the washing machine to flood! That won’t happen with TIBA members who all work by a self-regulated code of conduct which basically means that they act in a professional manner and always put the customer first.
Trustworthy.We all know someone who has experienced shoddy workmanship (or none at all in some cases!) and the professionals at TIBA are determined not to be tarred by that particular brush by offering references and phone numbers of previously satisfied customers (obviously we struggle a little with the funeral director…), and the production of paperwork showing legal business addresses and contact details and so on.
Competitive pricing .However, before you start thinking of lots of zeros on your invoice, be aware that using a TIBA member does not mean that you will necessarily be charged more. We all understand the difficulties for everyone in the current climate and TIBA members are well aware that not only do they need to offer a first class service but that they need to be competitive too. Nowadays, TIBA is made up of all types of businesses, and, not having restricted the membership in any way, they are always open to welcoming new businesses to join. Just take a look at the list of members and services available and even if you don’t see the one you need, contact TIBA and they’ll do their very best to point you in the right direction.
If you are interested in contacting or perhaps becoming a member of TIBA, contact 902 906 015 or visit their impressive website at www.tibacb.com TIBA in the community.
This year, the Association opted for sponsoring EMAUS orphanage in Elche which has been in existence for thirty two years and is a legally registered charity in Spain. EMAUS looks after children from all nationalities and, at the moment, the charity has one hundred and forty children in care, from newborn babies to young adults of eighteen years old. The children are looked after in different houses in the Altea and Elche areas and these children are at the lowest level of the Spanish Social services.EMAUS strives to provide them with everything from food, clothes, shoes, schooling etc. but more importantly these abandoned children are given love and the dignity that every child deserves in life and TIBA is going all out this year to provide the youngsters with some of the things they need. The charity also has a small house which is used as a women’s refuge where victims of domestic violence are helped and encouraged to move on to a new life. The charity works in conjunction with the Social Services here in Spain.
If you are interested in helping EMAUS take a look at their website at: www.emausong.es or contact Annette on 636103451.
