  5. :biggrin:Hi does anyone know roughly how much quarantine charge for fumigation of wicker items ? I dont want to get stung but i would like to take some.
  6. I just read on AQIS 'These services, except for destroying the item, are subject to fees and charges, which are payable by the person receiving the package.' from here Seized Items and Treatments - DAFF I thought i'd read on here that you had to pay to have items destroyed (or fumigated). Can anyone clarify please? If it's free to destroy them I might chance it with a few items.
  7. Hi, We are shipping our items over and then going to follow later on a flight. The idea is to get there shortly before the stuff arrives, rent a house and then the kids will have all their things around them which might help them settle better. The problem is we have been told 6 weeks and everyone I have told has laughed and said more like 10 - 12. Can anyone advise us on their shipping exp. Thanks

    Electrical items take or sell??

    Hi all I've read up on a few posts re taking/leaving electrical items but we were looking around at our household electrics and we own heaps of items with plugs!! I've managed to sell our (dusty) treadmill by chance today but we're wondering if to bother taking the fridge-freezer, washing machine and dishwasher?? I know it's a personal decision really but although these are matching kitchen appliances they are a few yrs old..... never did I think the day would come where I'd lose sleep over kitchen appliances!!! Thanks guys! Loubylou

  13. How many items of baggage are you allowed. Is it 1 case per person? Or as long as below the weight limit in total can you have 2 or 3 cases each?? We fly out for Holiday Reccie at end of March for 3 weeks. We're flying with Royal Brunei this time. But when we make the final move it might be with another airline? Thanks in advance Howard
  14. Latest Qantas News 29 December 2009 Changes to Airline Prohibited Items List With Australian Airports The Federal Government has introduced a change to the Aviation Transport Security Regulations to allow a number of items that were previously prohibited. From 25 December 2009 the following items may now be taken through security screening points and into the sterile area of airports within Australia: - umbrellas with metal points - knitting and crochet needles - pointed metal nail files (including nail clippers) - corkscrews, and - racquets used in squash, tennis, badminton or any other sport. In addition to the above items, the Government will also allow metal cutlery, including metal knives with rounded ends and no sharp points, to be provided in the sterile area of airports for use by persons in landside security zones, or on an aircraft for use by persons on the aircraft. Persons who wish to enter a sterile area will not be permitted to pass through the screening point with a metal cutlery knife, in the same way they have not been permitted to do so in the past. Items that continue to remain prohibited include: knives, firearms, letter openers, scissors, baseball and cricket bats, golf clubs and hockey sticks. The changes are designed to minimise disruptions for passengers while still ensuring security screeners continue to focus their full attention on items that pose serious security risks for Australian aviation.

  16. Hey, I'm looking at thousands of things in our house thinking- can we take this? will this cause us problems? I know everything has to be clean like garden furniture and tools etc but what about the following things? Will I be okay to put them in the container? could they cause us problems? I have a removal company coming round on Monday but would like some advice in advance: Salt dough models? Soft toys with lavender bags in their tummies? Wicker pen pot? Feather pillows? Woodern figures that don't look varnished but are painted? candles? Photo albums with bark covers? cork notice boards? handmade paper with what looks like wood bits in? general paper craft stuff? lush cosmetic products? top tier of my wedding cake? tools that are a little rusty? I'm totally panicking i know!!
