    Thanks to all that replied, we will checkout details supplied. :biggrin:
  3. Hi my hubby Derek & I just moved out 3wks ago, living in 2 different holiday villas for 1st few wks. We had dilemma with areas but have just got the 1st rental we applied for. We gave copies of bank statements, pictures of our old house in uk which we sold & offered to pay in advance, owner was happy to accept normal mthly payments for rent but think it may have helped. We have 2 boys 15 & 12 & schools were own main issue. We like the north better now but had put in for rental while south. We liked Atwell (Cockburn shopping centre really close) but hard to get rental there as we also have a dog, so gave up on that area. Best thing is to get feel for each area & go with your gut instinct, we drove around & went for coffees etc & visited shopping centres etc to get to know areas, also helped reading other peoples experiences. :biggrin:

    Who's Migrating in September???

    We fly out on the 18th to Perth, furniture and car left us 11 days ago and it's still sitting at Grangemouth waiting on a UK customs inspection!!. But can't wait to get some warm sun.
  8. Ours has been delayed in the UK for over a week now, shipper has told us it was a random search (mainly due to our car being with our furniture) but it means we have missed 2 shipping dates.I was expecting a delay in Australia but not one leaving the UK, has anyone else ever experienced a similar situation?

    What have you done today to get yourself to OZ?

    Booked another holiday villa in Butler for 2 weeks, we have one booked in Waikiki for 23 days but don't think this will give us enough time to find a long term rental (more money). Just going out to change some pounds in to AUD.

    Mining boom over - a good thing?

    Hope it keeps booming for a few years until we get settled. Sent from my HTC Wildfire S A510e using Tapatalk 2
