    Household Shopping

    Hi all, I'm due to move to Oz in January next year (Sunshine coast). I thought I'd look up the prices of commonly bought item during a weekly shop with brand names and create a spreadsheet to compare prices at home using an exchange rate of 1.60 I used Coles online shopping to find the items. Might be useful, might not but its there for anyone who want to see. Rakesh

  5. We are now considering a 40' container for our move this summer. Buying at Euro tax free prices in Germany where I am with the military seems like a good plan as the pound v dollar becomes a joke ... sadly not a funny one mind you. ikea for eg in europe has a bigger range and cheaper prices. keep it flat pack and boxed til we get there for the kids desks and the spare rooms etc even their sofas are looking quite tempting presently when looking at oz prices. the 40' container will also house our car and we have been quoted 7000euros door to door for all furnishings and the car in the container which i think happens to be a good price. the car is a 2006 skoda superb (vw passat on an audi a6 chassis) worth 5000 over here. with compliance costs and some tax discounts because we have owned it for 2 years (so long as it is ok to import) i think it is worthwhile because of the exchange rates - we will just run it til it dies - servicing etc will be reasonable and parts ok - any disagreements please let me know let me know your thoughts on my furniture/container/car plan. advice gratefully received! phil

  13. Please can anyone help me urgently? I'm trying to fill out the AQIS form for customs and there is a question asking if our possessions contain any of the following goods subject to plant quarantine laws - plant or parts of plants - to which we have said no, but then it says Furniture or other articles of wood cane or bamboo. Obviously our furniture is made of wood as are some ornaments but is this question only relating to the first part about plant material? or do we have to say yes - even though it is all treated wood. Secondly, are duvets allowed if they contain feathers? Do you have to declare these? Thanks for any suggestions/answers. C

    de facto visa household proof

    Hi. Almost finished completing our de facto vise application but a bit confused over what kind of proof they need when it comes to the nature of the household ... ie household chores etc sounds a strange question to ask or am i just missing the point haha
  22. Hello, Can anyone offer any advice on insurance for household goods shipments? We have selected Pickfords for the move and are not sure whether to use their insurance or to go with Letton Percival, who have provided a much more competitive quote. Has anyone had to claim from either of these companies during their move and if so, how easy was the process and did the payment covers any losses? Also, we're not sure whether to go for 'all risks' or 'total lost'. Again, any advice would be gratefully received. Thank you. :eek:
