    Home Security?

    Hi All, I'm just putting a post out to let anyone no that if you any questions about their home security please get in touch. My wife and I moved out here over 2 years ago and we absolutely love it here. We recently got married on the Sunshine Coast and now live in Windsor. (We also lived in Windsor in the UK :-) ). We found this website so helpful for planning our move from the UK and also for questions when we arrived. I'm a security technician from the UK and now run a small business in Brisbane offering security solutions for residential and commercial properties. If you have any questions or concerns about your home security pleased get in touch. Live your dream!!!!!!! James

    internet contection

    I would definitely recommend TPG. We had unlimited internet and unlimited international calls for $80. Then, because we weren't making use of the international calls they called us to advise to just go on unlimited internet for $60. I didn't have to chase them, they called me. :-)
  4. Hi again everyone!!! Where has the sun gone???? :wacko: What does everyone think of their choices of internet provider in their home and electricity suppliers?? We are moving into an apartment on the weekend and want to know the best suppliers with the best prices. Thanks all Jim Ps, does anyone surf on the weekends? If that's you, what's the best surf spot closest to Brisbane? (Without going to North to Noosa or South to Surfers)

    Any advice for best banks pleeeeeease?

    Thanks for the tips and advice everyone. That has helped a lot and put our minds at rest. Now time for me to stop doing all this grown up stuff and start enjoying the weekend. Have a good weekend all!!!!! from Jim :biggrin:
  6. Hi everyone!!!! Me and my partner have just moved to Brisbane and would like any advice on which is the best bank to go with??? NAB, Westpac and Commonwealth seem like the obvious choices, but after googling they all have some terrible reviews. Also, do you get charged from using an ATM that doesn't belong to your bank??? Many thanks in advance Jim Ps, this weather alone is so worth the move!!!! :-)

    Trade recognition?????

    Hi Everyone, My girlfriend and I are just waiting for our application to go through at the moment before heading out to join you all in Brisbane. We have been fortunate enough to have been offered sponsorship through her employers. I am a Security Systems Technician by trade and I would like to hear from anyone who has moved to Queensland with a trade. Did you find it difficult to transfer your qualifications over? I want to transfer my quals before we leave so I can start work as soon as possible. I am aware of the TRA approach, but as far as I understand this is only used if you are applying for migration using the trade skills. Am I wrong? I also know that I need to get a Queensland cable licence and Security checks (vetting), does your employer usually do this on your behalf or do you need to get it done before you even apply for a job? Any info is greatly appreciated :smile: Kind regards Jim
