    mmm generally no.. i think the length of the process and the brain capacity of the people we would have to deal with cause far more stress than the loss and the replacement process :)

    Yes, you can go straight to Escom head office and put a claim in. They will give you a claim form you need to fill in. I have done that 3 years ago when I lost a lot due to load shedding
