  1. Hi Lee, We moved back this year and used OSS World Wide Shippers (based in Brisbane) and we're also used KENT in the past, they were also very good.

    Advice on making decision

    I experienced the opposite. Lived in Australia for nearly thirty years, never got over the "guilt" really.

    Creating a Gov.UK account

    There is also an email form you can use which is on their website too.

    Creating a Gov.UK account

    Hi DanO, Just write to them, it's so much easier, the address is on the GOV UK website. Good luck with your move.

    Transferring money AU-UK after leaving.

    Hi Gerry, We are in the same position. My mobile is on a pre paid plan with NO international roaming, but, since arriving back here in the UK, those codes from the bank are still coming through, and other texts as well. As for transferring some funds, we use OFX and I set them up in my list of BPAY recipients before we left Australia, so I can do regular transfers / payments here in the UK without the need for a code. The network token Marisa talks about is a great idea, but that was not an option with my Australian bank. Good luck with your move.

    Flown To The UK Recently?

    We applied for our exemption only two weeks ago, and it did say do not book flights. I think it said that though when one the actual application page.

    Moving Home and Passports

    I think you are right Marisawright. Our exemption letter states both our full names and both passport numbers, so it probably is.

    Shipping container for our move home

    Very sorry, nothing to sell. We included all our white goods in the sale of the property and everything else will be shipped. Hope your move went well and hope you enjoy your new home

    Shipping container for our move home

    Hi Lee, try KENT if you want another quote. We move back to the UK next month, and our goods are being shipped back by OSS. Based on our experience, both companies are good.

    Moving Home and Passports

    Hi Clair, Take Marisawright's advice and re new both. When applying for your exemption, make sure you send a STAT DEC. We now have our's, after a refusal. We fly back to the UK this July. Good luck with your planning
  13. If this was me, I'd bring both, shipping costs would be way cheaper than buying new over here. I often regret not shipping over my lovely bed frame and mattress.
  14. Hi WW, thank you for your reply and hope all well with you. I don't want to get involved into living in Australia V living in UK discussions on this forum, they never end well !
  15. Many thanks Ken. I did not know that a service like that existed, I'll read up about this.
