  1. My little girl loves dressing up so for her bday which is in 10 days(!!) i decided it would be nice to get her her own dressing up box and fill with bits she can play with (from local op shops etc!). So I have been looking EVERYWHERE for a ready made toy chest, something girly ready painted OR a blanket box/toy chest in its raw wooden state that I can then paint and do it up to llok nice for her, put her name on it etc. trouble is cant find one anywhere! have done the whole ebay thing, found a few on there but there are either nowhere near WA or too expensive or wont get here in time now. Anyone know any furniture shops around her where I can go find a large wooden blanket box/toy box and paint it up, dont have much time to do it however!! hope someone can help!!
  2. Anyone had a whole box gone missing? Had sole use of container and when delivered it was unchecked by the Oz company on the list they gave me to check off as they brought the boxes in, they hadn't sighted it. Seems strange how a whole numbered box went into the container at our house but when it was emptied here it wasn't in the container? They said to just claim but I know what was in the box and claiming any money won't replace it, sentimental and unreplaceable rather than monetary valuable.:cry:

  4. Hi there, theres 4 of us moving to Melbourne, hopefully July/Aug time. We dont have our rental as yet but should do in July. Anyway, my 2 daughters have loads of shoes, handbags, scarfs and clothes so i thought can i not send some stuff in a box with alot of our clothes and shoes, and have our Wii console and games, laptops, and a printer sent in the box and take the clothes that we really need in our cases. I dont know who to go with and how much it will cost for 1 or 2 boxes, depends on the size of the box. How long it takes to arrive? any help on this will be much appreciated. Gillian:wubclub:
  5. Hi there I wondered if anyone could help I have been working on my work hol visa for around 6 weeks now & would like to stay for the full 6 months when I will look for another job. My employer told me to tick the 'non-resident for tax purposes' on the declaration form when I started. So I am paying 30% tax and exempt from the tax-free threshold However, on looking at the tax webste, I could actually declare myself as resident as I plan to stay in one place for over 6 months & work continuously. Is there any way to rectify this? I am also worried about being unable to claim any of my tax back now because I ticked the wrong box

  7. I have a box that I would like shipped back to the Uk. I am hoping someone on here would have room in their container for it. It is 67cm in length, height 56cm and 45 cm wide. It contains board games and a few sentimental toys that my children do not want to leave behind when we return to the UK in 3 weeks. It will be visible for inspection so you know there is nothing suspect in there. I have a friends house I can store it until necessary. Please help if you can I am willing to pay towards cost.

  9. Hi! I had a look around and saw a lot of information about sending back huge containers full of stuff but was wondering, does anyone have an experience with sending back just a box or two? Basically, I want to bring back a lot of books and the like (nothing fragile) and am trying to find the best way of doing this. Australia Post tells me between $100-$150 for surface mail, up to 20kg. Is there anything cheaper that anyone knows of?

    Box Jellyfish?

    Hi all, We are considering a move to the Gold Coast, Brisbane. Does anyone know if Box Jelly fish migrate that far down the coast. They are a very scary prospect, especially with 2 young children. Thanks. Leanne
