      We paid 10,700 Aud for a 40ft which contained our car and our belongings. We used chess and they were fine.

      We used OSS Worldwide who team up with Anglo Pacific this end. It cost $6,300 for a 20ft container from Queensland.

      I found OSS very expensive too, although my friend used them and thought they were ok-different state.

      Chess were the cheapest by far for us.

      Cost of shipping container

      We are still getting quotes. Unfortunately it seems that we are getting ripped off, whatever we do. Most quotes for a 20 foot container are $8,500 - none of the big companies will let us pack ourselves. The other option is through 'Across the Ocean' shipping who quoted $6,500 if we packed & loaded ourselves. The price is great but the problem is finding a removalist to help load our stuff that charges less than $120 an hour! We would need two men for about 6 hours ... which equates to $1,440!!!

      For those reading this that are coming out to Oz and not sure if they can find a job, here's your answer - set up a removal company.
