      Hi all,

      We are moving back to Melbourne in Feb/March and have had a quote of 2195 gbp for 430 cubic feet door to door shiping of our goods from Anglo Pacific in a shared container.

      I have read mixed reviews about this company but have regarding most shipping/removal companys, does anyone know if thats a fair price ?

      Also any recents experiences of any removals

      Cheers Mike

      Hi Mike, shared containers are much more expensive than full containers per cubic metre. I reckon your price is OK. Every shipping company has horror stories, I am not sure whether any are really better than any other. Oh, and welcome back to Melbourne!

      Well mate, I'm getting quotes of $3k-$6k for Sydney - Perth for 20m3 for comparison. (1m3=35cubic feet). Your 430 is about 12.2m3 which doesn't seem a lot. A standard sized fridge is about 1m3.

      Get a price per m3 although they'll have minimums and pick up charges etc. I have been quoted $155 to $195 per m3
