    Shipping furniture IKEA

    We did it and dont regret a thing. Granted our furniture was a few years old but i loved being able to go and buy what i wanted, when i wanted it to suit the house we were living in. I found lots of stores gave good discounts when buying a few things and i also learnt Rugs A million have a sale every week ! lol Cal x

    Shipping furniture IKEA

    IKEA is over here too, so i personally wouldnt spend the money shipping them. If you do find you need drawers etc once here just pop to Ikea and replace them. Cal x

    Is Labour Finished?

    Ive hidden the last few posts as they offered nothing to the thread, if you want to argue and belittle each other do it via PM as its getting tiresome watching the same people spoil most of the threads .. Cal x

    Opening Australian bank account from UK

    We used ANZ when we set ours up, used our UK address and could transfer moneys in but not withdraw until we were here and activated the account. The big banks all do it Westpac, Commonwealth etc Cal x

    Queensland fires

    Sadly the iconic Binna Burra resort was destroyed with the fire over the weekend, along with quite a few homes. Kudos to the firemen who wont give up, they must be knackered as this has gone on quite a few days now. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-09-08/bushfire-destroys-binna-burra-lodge-gold-coast-hinterland/11489860 https://www.beaudeserttimes.com.au/story/6372140/devastation-as-fire-rips-through-canungra-region-latest-updates/ Cal x

    Queensland fires

    Kate is the other direction, there have been a few fires over Ipswich way but thankfully all under control, unlike the GC. I am about half an hour away but fires going the opposite way to here , not sure how Gary went going to work today as he drives through Canungra to get there and its that area that has been affected badly.

    Four cats to Brisbane: am I mad to even consider it?

    Your options will be reduced if you have pets but by providing the photos, references and even an extra few $$$ in a pet bond it will really help you. I would not advise you rent from the UK ,too many houses look nothing like their on line photos, so always best to contact agents and look in person once your here. If you want inner city or a brand new rental house you are going to struggle, go a little further out ,where loads of people do have animals and you will have a much better chance. Have you looked at a large cat enclosure for outside / under a patio ?, they sell some fantastic ones and wouldnt affect renting as much as they would theoretically be outside. My friend has one and its bigger than our old garden shed in the UK,lol Cal x
