    Pork pies and mushy peas ?

    If you are ever in Toowoomba check out Andrews Meats at Grand Central shopping centre for pork pies.
  2. Try Letton Percival. They are used by quite a few on this site we used them for cover for our Movecube earlier in the year.

    New Query on opening a bank in the UK

    Why would HSBC Australia give her wrong information? Its all done through their international division. They will get fined if they do not follow the rules.

    New Query on opening a bank in the UK

    Hi we bank with HSBC in fact I was employed by them for 40 years. We opened our account with HSBC Australia last September in readiness for our move. Bank cards and cheque book were sent out to the UK. We could start using the account straight away and transferred funds from UK to Australia and then from Australia to our son who paid assurance of Support bond and visa fee. Really easy now to transfer funds from our UK account to Australia account you can see the funds straight away so no messing with third party just keep watching the rate.
  7. Hi so we have been here for just over 3 months and I think we have everything sorted apart from private medical insurance. We registered with medicare straight away and have managed to find a bulk billed doctor in our area so now have to decide whether to take out insurance. Does anyone have any thoughts on this please.
  8. Just managed to find it for you as we had used it previously. 1800 571 922. See page 722 for more information input on 10 August 2018.
  9. Don't forget the weight restrictions of 32 kg on individual items due to health and safety

    MoveCube Preparation

    Our Movecube is being delivered back to us tomorrow. It left the UK on 21 January. No problems in Australia but my husband had to pay customs duty on his new set of golf clubs. It will be nice to see some familiar things but we didn't ship any furniture.

    Transfer of funds Uk State pension

    We have just arrived in Australia. My husband gets his state pension and called the international pension centre last week to let them know we were moving. He was advised that the payment can continue to be paid to his UK bank or they can pay it to an overseas account. The only problem with that is you will have no control over the exchange rate. Hope this helps.
  13. Why don't you have a free initial consultation with an agent. I can recommend Alan Collett at go matilda, details on their website.

    Finding a sponsor

    Did you pay on a credit card? If you did is there the chance of a claim under section 75 of the consumer credit act if they have not provided the service you expected.
