    Future in Australia

    Hang in there!! Your prepared for the move so your half way there. You've noy got the hassle of selling your house now which is great, best of luck for the future, who knows how things will be in 6 months. We want to sell our home this year if everything starts to get back to normal, we also want to be in Australia by Feb 2021. Where in Australia are you moving too? Stay safe. Xx

    Future in Australia

    We are hoping to be back in the areas near where we lived, but will depend on house prices there too, fingers crossed they dont go up!!

    Yes that's very true, I guess will just have to wait and see how things throughout the year. Really hope we can sell our house this year!! Thanks for the reply. X

    Future in Australia

    Thank you. I can't see that we would be moving by beginning of Feb 2021 and really we want to do the move without the extra flight for activation first, so I wonder if my other half could try and get the date extended, even if things start going back to normal? We have a home to sell so can't see the market will be strong this year.

    I can't see us making the move this year now but other half has to activate his visa by 3rd Feb 2021 so will have to see if he can get an extension on his activation date.

    Future in Australia

    Hi all, Has anyone, who is planning on moving to Australia and had visas granted, wondering if the Coronavirus will have a huge impact on selling homes in UK and if itwill affect finding work in Australia? Will it have a long term affect globally and cause a recession and an increase in tax payers having to pay back the money the government is dishing out sothat people can survive this awful crisis? So many questions now over all of our futures!!

    Shared container

    We've got a 2 bed bungalow and was told we wouldn't get everything in a 20ft!! Its a small bungalow too, but we have got quite a bit in the loft, garage and some bulky garden furniture, so coming in at around 1100 cuft, which is just over for a 20ft container. The surplus (garden furniture) could go in a shared container i suppose.

    Still waiting for the quote, we wasnt told there was a delay due to the CoronaVirus and would assume administration staff would be able to work from home? Not impressed so far.

    Shared container

    It's definitely an option but we want to avoid paying for storage in Oz once the container arrives and sharing one will give us more time to buy a home and find work. We are staying with family which is very helpful but delaying the arrival of our goods might be better for us. Should get the quote today. So if we go sole use for 20ft and it arrives before we have found a house and jobs then we would be paying storage fees and we wouldn't know how long for.

    Shared container

    Thanks Ali, My concern would be that we would be charged a delay fee if the container was not filled by someone else, the company cant possibly know how long we would have to wait!

    Shared container

    Hi everyone, We had a consultant round today to quote for our belongings and suggested a shared container. We have 1100 cubic feet so would need to share a 40ft container. Has anyone gone through the process of sharing a container and hkw did you find the process overall? Would you recommend? Thanks in advance. Xx
