Hi can anybody out there tell me the average cost I can expect to pay for a container, and who you would recommend.
Pickfords quoted me £4,300 for 20 foot container and £5,800 for a 40 foot.
I am waiting for a price off Anglo Pacific.
Bloody expensive basically
Anglo Pacific 40 footer £7k!!!
Kinda confirms I will be taking as little as possible with me!!
Thanks for the information Boomer, I guess SCoop has the right idea, abandon all goods and start a fresh.
We have since had a quote from Anglo Pacfic and they quote 2700.00 for a shared 20ft container if that helps any of you out there, I also find Excess Baggage quite helpful, quoting 2500.00 for shared.
Take care Ozzie fans, think I am going mad with the worry of having all sorted by June 19th but sure I will be back on track when we get there.
i shall be taking..........a back pack
what a very good idea
We used "Anglo PATHETIC" - need I say any more !!!!!!!!!!!
Thankyou so much for your tip, we were about to book them, that has helped our decision!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Where abouts are you in melbourne, we are flying there on the 19/06/06
We are on the east side about 30mins by train outside the city. Been here 5 months now and settling well.
We had few problems with Anglo Pathetic - sent the wrong container, overquoted for the amount of boxes we needed and would not give us a refund. Then at this end, communication was terrible - no info unless YOU phone them and even then the receptionist with her "go away I cant be bothered with you " attitude really got up my nose. The only good thing I have to say about them is the packers and unpackers were excellent - very efficient but thats all I can say good about them. The only quick and efficient thing the company does is take your money - oh no delay in that !!!!!
Not long now till you fly. If there is anything else i can help you with, let me know - feel free to PM me if you wish
