    macula degeneration

    The moral is you need to shop around for health care here. Never be afraid to ask your gp or any practice for prices, they vary A LOT. People with insurance can end up paying more out of pocket expenses than someone without insurance for the same procedure. Too many people just accept a price and shrug! Same with medication, can be 3 times as much for the exact same drug! I was shocked when charged $16 for a scrip I had paid $5.10 for at chemist warehouse at a local pharmacy. I questioned it and they price matched with a shrug.......if I hadn’t complained they would have charged me $16. Now I do not mind paying a premium for local and convenience but 10-20% is fair not 300%!

    Comparing shipping costs

    I meant why they call it a bottom mount fridge, when the fridge is on top. Confused me anyway.

    Just a letter for us. Councils vary though, some do e mails some do both.

    Furnished rentals for 3 months Sydney

    As someone said you can rent furniture, either just a sofa to a whole house pack (including kitchen equipment, cutlery etc. much like renting a furnished place but seperate contracts! We did just this until our stuff arrived, worked out cheaper than furnished accommodation too. We actually mixed it and bought some stuff we knew we would still need after our container arrived and just picked from a list what we wanted to rent. Worked really well and better than camping!

    Two separate applications for the adults, can be done on the same immi account though. She has to do her own application.

    Yes. American style side by side or top bottom ones are on there somewhere. Think you search under fridges. Oddly the bottom mount fridges have the freezer on the bottom and the fridge bit on top!

    And they take your old machine away along with all the packaging from the new one. I ordered a new dishwasher just before Christmas as my old one gave up. Two days later all sorted with minimal effort on my part and a good $130 cheaper than Harvey’s

    Few will but some are still quicker than others.

    Self pack container?

    Wasn’t an issue for us. On our second move we had some stuff still in boxes, they simply checked them to ensure they were well packed (for insurance purposes) then re sealed. All contents were listed properly and I had them also mark the room on the box for initial dispersion on arrival. I am generally a control freak but was really impressed with them. I did keep a wary eye on them but after four international moves I knew what to expect.

    Seriously for an international move get the packing. Here is why. they list the contents of each box (required by customs) so you know what is where they wrap professionally, less breakage they wrap furniture in special protective breathable wrap. they use boxes that tessellate and pack snug. They unpack and remove oackaging at the other end they dismantle and reassemble furniture if required. insurance prefers it They are fast, efficient and so totally worth it. concentrate on de cluttering and sorting your stuff beforehand. Organise rooms and be clear on what us to go/stay. We had never had removals pack for us before as only moved locally. It is a different game entirely! There is enough stress and things to do, let them take the strain for not much more expense.
  14. Well you won’t get a visa at all if you just provide evidence from marriage as not even a year ago.

    Yes the seven seas website isn’t obvious but you can get a price for a move cube online, think you click taking large stuff/move cube option ant the start of the quote. Or just give them a call they are very helpful.
