    Grace removals pumping up the price -jeezo

    what 5 months delivery ?? better not be i have my tools there :biglaugh:
  3. hi has anyone used grace removals before ? i got them out last week for our return home to uk , they gave us a very decent quote of $3200 for about half the stuff we actually brought out with us, OSS where cheaper but grace told us because they never actually came out to our flat they would pump up the price after the quote ! SO we went with grace to now discover they are trying to burn us for $4000 - $800 more so im havin a feud with a rude woman at grace right now LOL i thought a quote should be quite near not bloody $800 more ! Does anyone know my rights on this one i feel a bit mad :arghh:

    Driving in australia !

    i live in melbourne and have to say isnt the driving on the roads here just ridiculous? i find australian people very friendly and polite to your face but its like once behind the wheel its a bit more like F***k YOU ! i had some bloke in a ute shouting balling at me whilst swinging his clenched fist out the window and i still have no idea what i done wrong and that was 2 weeks ago ! also what about the monster trucks that drive up your A***e at 100 kph and they dont seem to get anywhere any faster ! i mean do these truck drivers actually get trained or do they pick them up from some sort of mental institution ? :arghh: and what about courtesy? lane changing can become seriously difficult when the asshole in the lane beside you's way of thinking is "thou shall not speed up or slow down for anyone who doesnt know where they are going" or maybe they came from the mental institution also !:wacko: ok now for my favourite part ! what about when at the lights theres a car turning right and a car waiting for a fortnight to turn left but cant because theres la de dah pedestrians walking in slow motion accross the road and the green man isnt even on ! aaaaghhh ! and i was going straight by the way but never made it ! i bet everyone on here has had the thought of homicide whilst in a rush and being stuck behind a slow moving tram ! can anyone add to this ? im sure there must be more annoying driving stuff:biggrin:

    plumbing in melbourne

    hi tracy i did manage to get plumbing work through a few agencies after about a year and they pay quite well as your only casual and they can bump u wen they dont need u anymore!! ive done more labouring and actually dont mind it as its usually easy n laid back and funnily the pay can b the same or better than plumbing !! oz is weird lol.. tell your husband he can work as a plumber with just being registered ! (send of his city n guilds or equivelent to plumbing industry commision.. u will need to pretend ur in oz so get his plumbing card sent to a friends house and he will have it wen he arrives here!! ) a registration card and thats all u need to work on sites ect,,, he only requires a license if he wants to start his own business or sign jobs off (like house extension work or bathroom relocation ect) things have improved in past 2n half years workwise ! i gave up trying to get a full time plumbing job about a year ago but im working as a labourer and getting $42 p/h so very happy n no stress doing plumbing lol .. for yourself always loads bar/restaurant work if u have to wait, my neice is here and has 3 bar jobs an goes between em! if u need any more info give me a shout :biggrin:
