    Cleaning tools ready for shipping

    Hi, my husband spent days cleaning all of his tools with eyes fluid, getting all the wood and dust off, was a nightmare and took quite a long time to do but our packers,Anglo Pacific said they would be ok and they were the best they had seen.lol .so I would just clean clean clean. They said it's just luck,who gets picked out and who doesn't

    Container gone today and 2 weeks to go!!

    Staying for 3 nights, we are staying in grand Mercury Roy hotel about 15 mins from the airport
  5. Starting to get real know! Anglo Pacifics came today and packaged all of our things up, they were a couple of hours late!! But very good when they were here. Would recommend them. We are moving out of our house tomorrow as we have sold it. We're staying in temporary accommodation for a couple of weeks until we fly to Brisbane via Singapore on the 30th October and land in oz on the 4th November. We are a family of 4, 2 adults,35,36 & 2 children 6&4, heading for the gold coast and staying in turtle beach resort whilst we sort a more permanent rental etc out. Is anyone heading out to Gold Coast in the next few wks? Any recommendations as to what to do whilst in Singapore?

    Are you moving to Australia in 2015?

    Wow, you have got a lot done in 1 wk. we arrive Gold Coast end oct,family of 4. How hard is it to secure a rental? Heard there's a lot of people after 1 property? Whereabouts are you in oz?
  9. We used Ian harrops,jenny is brilliant. My husband is a carpenter, we paid for the agent £2600 but we'll worth it, there is so much paperwork etc
  10. Helensvale sounds great! We are a family, 2 young children, 6 &4 we are coming out end October,have hooked into turtle beach resort near mermaid beach, for 28 nights. Hoping that's enough time to get a more permanent rental,move in,find a school, hubby look for work etc! We like the look of a few suburbs but will choose when we have looked round. Doesn't seem real yet! And I can't stop thinking about the big spiders!! They freak me out.lol

    Primary Schools on the Gold Coast

    Hi, we will be arriving on the gc end of October. We have been doing a lot of research and would like to live in a family friendly suburb with lots going on, we have narrowed it down to the northern suburbs, helensvale,p pines,Arundel,parkwood,Carrara, southport . We have been looking at schools online and they seem rather big and have a lot of children attending. Is this normal for qld schools, I thought they were a lot smaller? Does anyone have any good recommendations of schools in those areas? My daughter will be going into year 2, and my son in reception. Any help would be great
