      Which shipping company - Poll

      I've run this past a mod and have been given the ok to post. Thought it might help people when they are researching for a shipping company to move their belongings. This is for UK - Australia shipping. Am polling to see which companies people use(d). I've listed 9 companies but if you have used another one and wish to suggest it please post in the thread. I went for the higher returning ones on a Google search.

      Important bit of blurb below for legal reasons. Please read and post your replies accordingly.

      * Feel free to reply in this thread to say if you would would use or not use the company again. Something simple like

      **Name of company - 'Would use them again'**

      **Name of company - Yes**

      or

      **Name of company - 'Would not use them again'**

      **Name of company - No**


      will suffice. Please stick to PM only with reasons if not. This is due to legal implications for Poms In Oz and I don't wish to cause them problems or have this thread locked/deleted.

      If you wish you can gives costs quoted or actual costs in reply. Its not expected as some people don't wish to share such information but if you do, thanks in advance for the info. Gives those looking for an idea of expense something to work with. Please could you state then if its for a part or whole container.

      Thanks in advance.

      Cheers :)

      If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...
      If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

      I used Seven Seas. This was from Scotland (rural pickup rather than a major city) to Melbourne for two large boxes and a suitcase, shipped via air, rather than sea. I would use them again as they did everything they said they would, when they said they would (14 days). Insurance was pricey (5% of value shipped), but I think that's probably standard.
      For costs, if you go to their website and plug in what you want to ship then it gives you an estimated cost (less the insurance obv as this depends on value shipped).
      Once they've picked the items up u can track them online too, to see where in transit they are.

      Hope this helps folk in a similar situation.

      seven seas highly recommended. Sent 7 boxes from a Scottish island and no extra charges. Best quote from all the others I researched.

      We used Doree Bonner!
      Not the cheapest, but the most help regarding all our questions, very efficient from start to finish! Nothing broken whilst being packed or once we received it the other end! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
