    Good Removal firms??

    Hi Can anyone recommend any good international removals firms..or likewise tell me the ones to stay away from!! I have spoken to a couple on this site who said they had a disaster with their removals firms ie. things arrived broken/bashed or stuff did not arrive at all...compensation claims have been delayed or paltry amounts have been offered for items which cost a lot of money initially. We are currently based in Fife, Scotland so we are looking at both local firms and national ones and are coming to Brisbane end of Aug/1st week in Sept...I think we will need a container to ourselves for all the things we are going to bring out but any advice would be really appreciated.
  4. Good luck to Ian, Nina and little George, They flew to Perth yesterday to activate their visa,( beat me to it by 11 weeks GIT) Unfourtunately they are in same boat as a lot of us waiting for their house to sell. I think it's all a big conspiracy between the airlines to make us all pay for extra flights to activate visas!!! lol.
  5. As I was searching through old posts I came across one about negative posts. The post said something along the lines of we all need to know the good and bad, which I do agree with. It also said something about not getting the answers that we need as many of us have already moved to our new lives and dont come on line so often. I could totally relate to this as i have not been online for some time (had loads of family c**p to deal with). So as I have learned so much and had loads of positive advice from all the lovely people on PIO,I thought I would start a new thread all about positive advice. Please add any good advice you think will help others or even something that has helped you through the nightmare that is EMMIGRATION.:twitcy: My help is; when my sisters kids (Infants) start the new school year in WA they have to supply all of their stationary,pens,pencils, scissors ect. I would not have thought about this as we dont do it here. Now I will be prepared and include it in my budget as money will be tight when we first arrive. xx Shell xx

    Good or Bad Idea ???

    Hi All, Well so far no visa yet and no house sale yet, but thinking ahead and this is our dilemma When we finally receive the Visa (fingers crossed we do), then we need to activate our visa by the 1st December, which means IF we do not sell the house it will be a pain, so need to think of plan B. The main problem is that our boys are 16 and 14 so getting back into their education will be crucial SO was thinking that we would all go and activate the Visas then after Xmas OH come back here to work and pay the bills and continue to try and sell the house, as he would earn more back here than there, and the boys and I stay in Australia and get a rental so that we can carry on with their education in Australia until Daren joins us in Aus. What do you think guys, is this a bad move :wacko: Take care and thanks Kimx
  10. The Dollar is at it's strongest for a long timea against the pound, so with house prices dropping in the UK you may be able to get back on the property ladder quicker than you thought...hope it lasts for the next couple of years when I go back.:yes:

    is this a good sign ?

    hey everyone... I sent my spouse visa application off a couple of weeks ago, they took the money out of my account within a few days and I got an email from my case officer a couple of days ago asking for more evidence. I've sent it off, she should receive it by Monday morning. This morning I got almost all my other evidence (photos, cards, bank statements, letters etc) in the post along with the receipt for the application fee. Is this a good sign ?! At first I freaked out when I opened the envelope and thought they'd returned my whole application !! There was no letter in there explaining anything.... is it normal for them to send all this back so quickly ? Do they just copy it all and return it ? xx
  19. I am sure all the peeps on here would like to join me in congratualting Jo n Paul on settling on their 1st home here in Australia! They have done alot for us and several others on this site and it's good to see things working out so well for such a lovely family! We will miss having you across the road, but look forward to welcoming Chell, Gav and the kids tomorrow! All the best, glad your not going far! Anyhow, best get myself sorted to lend a hand!!
  20. Hi All, My parents have just returned home after a holiday in Australia. As they were going to be traveling around Australia and wanted to base their travels from Melbourne, they came across a small rental company called Australian Home Away (www.australianhomeaway.com). Their hosts Bob, Sandra & Susan did everything possible to assist in their requirements and provided good quality accommodation in various parts of Melbourne. So, if any of you or your friends get stuck with finding a place to stay, give them a call.
  21. Hi all, Has anyone been to a migration seminar? I wonder is it worth our while going.. A migration company - Visa-Go Emigration are holding a free seminar in Glasgow and wonder if it is worth our time going?
  22. Hi All, Last night we went to our friends 40th Birthday Party, only thing was we turned up at this hall had a drink and thought, well where is the birthday girl !! Turns out we were at the wrong party :biglaugh:. So of we goes to another hall (couldnt remember where the party was), and once again in we goes and another great party that was in full swing, turns out it was a wedding reception so we quickly slid off :embarrassed: 3rd party we turns up at was a fancy dress, and we thought to ourselves she didnt mention fancy dress, but once again great party and everyone was having a good time ! FINALLY we got to the correct party and had a great time, DJ was great the drink was flowing and people were dancing the night away. Do they have good parties in Australia? Do the Australians know how to strutt their stuff and dance and drink the night away ? Whose been to a good party in Australia?
  23. Hi all After reading some of the other comments. I'm worried that as a management accountant with 10yrs experience, but only qualify under the skills assessment as a branch accountant (3211-11) due to being a CIMA finalist, that my chances of wa state/territory sponsoring me are very slim as this asco does not appear on their skills in demand list. Is this true?? If so, do I have any other options available to me - or is it all just a :SLEEP: dream!! Thanks Helen

    Agent says we're not good enough!!

    Help!! We seem to have fallen at the first hurdle. We're hoping to migrate on a 176 (family-sponsored skilled) visa, my OH is a General Manager and we were initially looking at doing this without an agent but decided to contact Go Matilda. We looked thoroughly into it and OH's job seemed to fit all the criteria. But today they've got back to us and said that because he has no 'formal' qualifications, they don't think we would pass the skills assessment. So we now have his aunt waiting for us to contact her in NSW as she is sponsoring us but we're stuck as to what to do next!! Has this happened to anyone else??
