    Transporting pets from scotland

    Hi Lynette, We have received a few quotes - just can't believe it is going to cost more to take Molly out than for the 4 of us!! But I couldn't leave her - she is like another baby (makes me rather sad I know). Not sure who we are going to go with yet. Hubby left yesterday for Oz so we haven't had a chance to go through the quotes yet. We are going to use a shipping company I think - don't think I could face adding that to my pile of things to do - esp as OH is away until Christmas:laugh: I agree with you about the drive to Heathrow - not going to be fun :cry: Sarah

    Transporting pets from scotland

    Hi all, Hoping someone can help. We have been looking at various pet transporters to take our beloved Molly the mutt to Perth. Our quotes are coming back based on flying her out of Heathrow - has anyone used a reputable company that has an "all-in-price" from Scotland (Ive been told she can't fly from Scotland so it would be transit to heathrow)??? Thanks. Sarah

    Hey there - not been on in a while - things are moving fast for everyone :laugh: OH has now booked his flights & leaves a week tomorrow. Fingers crossed he gets a job quickly as I don't want to be hanging back here for ant longer that I have too!!! Now that its "game on" I just want to get going. Work have agreed to me having slightly reduced hours re childcare whilst OH is away - it was like drawing teeth getting them to agree to meusing my hoidays to get a 4 day week though (shortsighted of them!) Roll on Christmas!!!

    Morning All, Hope you are all well this fine morning - had a busy weekend :wacko: OH has flights booked for 14th October & is being put up by some friends in Perth for a few weeks. All going so quickly I feel as if my head is constantly spinning :spinny: Now I just have to ask my work if I can tweak my hours so I do nursery drop off & pick up - not sure how that is going to go down :confused: Wish me luck!!!!

    Hey Iza, Don't know if it will impact. I found our case officer really helpful - even got a best wishes from him once we got the grant. Play it canny! :wink:

    I understand your dilemma. We thought about this for a long time & decided OH would go out first. The boys are 18 months & 3.5 yrs so we want to minimise the disruption to them. The negative thing is that I am left here working fulltime with the 2 boys & no family support. Not looking forward to that!!:arghh: But the benefit is that when do we go out, OH will have secured a job (hopefully) & a car & have found us somewhere to live. Fingers crossed :unsure:

    You are brave !! Maybe if I didn't have kids I would be keen to just upsticks & see what pans out. Would be exciting :daydreaming: But reality check!!! I will have to wait til Jan 12 whislt the OH is enjoying the aussie sunshine!!

    OH is going out hopefully w/c 10th Oct so been looking at flights for him first. Want to get set up. Tried usual sites & had him call Trailfinders yesterday. Got home last night & he said that there was nothing with Trailblazers :huh: Needless to say he is going to call Trailfinders today - been a while but thought it may work out worthwhile for him to get a basic round the world ticket as he will will be coming back at Christmas to collect us!:jiggy:

    Hi Iza, I'm an accountant too & qualified over 10 years as well, however my experience is in the construction industry. I have not started looking for jobs and don't intend to for the next wee while. So I can't help on the reruitment front as yet. One if the reasons we are moving to Oz is for a better overall life with the boys and to us it means me working part-time (hopefully!!). Therefore our priority is for the OH to get a job first & then for me to work my notice prior to myself & the kids moving out. I have friends in Perth & they gave me Michael Page & Hays as a first port of call. Hope that helps. Sarah

    Thanks for that Lebourvellec. I had already emailed my case officer before you had posted. He came back this morning saying that as he had not attached condition 8502 to our visa my OH can head out straight away. :smile: OH & I had a chat last night & depending on what the recruitment agency says today, we are hoping he might head off in a few weeks. The plan is for him to get set up asap & for myself & the bambinos to head out after Christmas. Only downside is that I will be a sinlge mum with a fulltime job for the next few months aaargh:arghh:

    Thanks everyone!! Been out to buy some champagne - & it's even a school night :wink: Going to sit down with OH tonight & talk over the next move. Just been reading paperwork - doesn't say anything about me having to activate as primary applicant. Think I will email CO just to be sure OH can do the recce trip whilst I am working my notice. Head has been buzzing all day with everything we need to think about :spinny::yellow_guy_crazy_ty
