    My removal story

    After carefull consideration we decided on using a local firm, a small and hopefully a more personal service. So we used a company in birmingham. Got a v reasonable quote and signed up. The guys who packed us were very helpfull and got the job done in good time so we bought several crates of beer as a thank you. WE had our stuff shipped before we flew out, as we were staying with relatives we could, so only a couple of weeks after we landed our stuff was ready, so 2 weeks in a holiday rental, signed up on a house and the furniture delivered the same week. They decided to use a third party removal company to deliver to our brisbane rental, but we were left to unpack the boxes ourselves, not what we had paid for, never mind we are here. Our furniture was damaged but we got quotes and the insurance paid, rather have undamaged furniture as it was made in belgium and v expensive. We tried to ask why we were left to unpack and dispose of boxes and packing, but after all parties blaming each other and us out of pocket we disposed of the waste our selves. tried e mails and phone calls but some one was always in a meeting , e mails in the trash bin, not looking for money back just a sorry, Guess the moral of this rambling post is choose VERY carefully as the promises you get when handing over your uk cash are long forgotten on the other side of the world.

    Removal from Jurisdiction

    Hi - is anybody going through this lengthy process through the courts at the moment? All threads on here go back over a year. I am due my third court hearing in August (final hearing) to get an order to remove my child and live in Oz. CAFCASS have done report and my child can't wait to go!!! Husband has secured an excellent job and is already there. Ex sees my child odd weekends and is totally against move. Would love to hear from anyone who is going through the same. Horrible time and very lonely! Lisa
  5. We leave for Sydney on a 457 on Monday. We are leaving everyone and everything we know behind. Excitement soon turns to stress and low mood.. We are all dreading the family "goodbyes" on Sunday. Any survival tips? Cheers Paul, Sally, Samuel and Rosanna
  6. Hi all, In 5 weeks we fly to Brisbane for a month and when we get back we will be looking to ship our house contents probably sometime late september, all depending on when our house sells. So, I've had some quotes from various companies and the prices really differ form £2K up to almost £5K, some offer storage and some don't and we will need one that offers storage at the other end. What are peoples experiences of shipping companies and who should we avoid! We don't mind spending a fair bit as long as everything gets there in one piece! Tanks! :jiggy:
  7. Looking for anyone that has used REMOVAL SERVICES SCOTLAND LTD (RSS) for shipping household furniture to Perth or any where else in Australia.

    Interstate removal firms

    Hi, we are moving up to the Gold Coast from Adelaide as soon as the house is sold. Yay at last.:jiggy: Could anyone tell me if they know (or people they know) of any interstate removalist that are value for money. We will need something bigger than a 20ft container as that is what we had when we came over from england and we have accumulated more stuff since then. We won't need to transport our car as we are driving up there. Thanks. Julie
  10. Anyone used good removal companies from Perth to UK? Used Excess International coming here but would much rather not use them again! OSS dont ship from Perth otherwise we would try them. Thanks!
  11. I've had two removal companies out to give me quotes for removals, and now that the quotes have come through, I'm seeing discrepancies between what was actually said when their representatives were here and what is actually laid down on the quote, ie, costings, and particularly timescales! Really annoying when you get told in your home that it will take 6-8 weeks, then when the quote comes, it says 8-10 weeks on the basis that thats the cheapest route. If you want the 6-8 weeks schedule, its dearer!! I also felt they gave you a little 'false' information like, 'yeh, we'll build a box for that table so its nice and secure....', but when the quote comes through, if you want a special box its extra! Also found a few other bits and bobs that are really annoying. I also found that there was a stark difference between the estimated volume of goods that we had between the two companies. One estimated nearly a third more. I always felt we were going to be a bit tight on a 20' container as we're taking a car in it, but the last thing I want is to go with the company that said we had less, only to find out that it wont all go in, and the rest either has to go as groupage or as excess baggage or something. Has anyone else experienced these problems? Julie
  12. Hello all, The removal company comes in tomorrow and i'm at the point where i don't know where to turn next! The house looks like a bomb has hit it as we have put anything we have a box for in it's box! How did you label what is going what isn't going? How tidy was your house when they arrived? Did you feed and water them? Just not sure what to expect- any advice would be great- before i pack the Computer!! thank you all

    Removal from Jurisdiction.

    I was wondering if anyone had any advise or have been in a similiar situation. We went through a Removal of Jurisdiction case with my step son's mother last year and were successful and have now been living in Australia for 12 months. My husband and step son are going back to the UK in January for the agreed 2 week annual visit completely at our expense as agreed at court. My question is if his mother has not been making any contact via email, webcam, phone or letter are we still legally obliged to bring my step son back to the UK every year for a visit. We are aware that if we do not adhere to the court order my step son can be removed from our care and sent back to the UK however as she has not followed the court order to stay in contact with her son and I have made all the contact possible is she also not following a court order? Would just like to know for next year. Cheers
  14. HELP We have just finalised the booking of our container and now we have found this HUGE document in our folder. Has everyone had to do this? I can understand them wanting a valuation, but this is asking us for the exact number of CDs, coats (woman), coats (child), skirts, sweaters, towels etc etc etc. They are packing us, I thought they would be doing the itemisation. At this stage we haven't really finalised exactly what we are taking, what we are selling and what we are dumping. HEEEEEEELP!!!! Please give me some advice about how to get my head around all of this. OK, breathe, breathe breathe, put the kettle on, go back to bed and hide under the covers for a month or two.......:arghh:

    Which removal firm?

    There are many comments on this forum about which removal firms to use - or more impotantly which ones not to use. As we cannot display the names of certain removal firms for the fear of legal action for some reason, I thought that a list of removal firms that could be used would be good and any feed back on first hand experience with them. If the names have been bleeped out, then I would avoid them like the plague, so a list of reputable firms which I would choose from should be all that is left! Please add to the list and post feed back of good experiences with the companies that are in the list. Thanks. Here's a starter list; Pickfords, Crown, PSS, Anglo Pacific, Doree Bonner, Atlantis Ltd, Bishops Move Have fun, and list your removal company here.:jiggy:

    Removal vs Freight Companies

    I have had quotes from a few removal companies and a few freight companies to ship my things to Australia. I am only shipping about 20 tea chest and 3 or 4 small furniture items. The costs range from £1154 to £279! The dearer quote includes packing and carriage door to door. The cheapest quote is only up to arrival in Sydney and I would have to pack everything myself and arrange an agent in Sydney to get my things through customs and deliver it. Does anybody have experience of shipping using a freight company? What are the pros and cons?:confused:

  21. I urgently need some advice please. How do I get as quickly as possible a court order to remove my daughter from the UK. Her Father is already in Australia but wont give his consent to bring her to Australia and Diac will not allow us to emigrate without it. She is 15 years old. How do I approach the courts and is it a family court?

    Removal men are here.....

    The nerves are now kicking in.........not been on here for a good few weeks as we have been busy leaving our employment, having a good long three week holiday and sorting out our leaving do....oh....and whilst on holiday decided it would be lovely and a great surprise for our friends to marry on the morning of our leaving do !!! So not got much to do.......... After receiving various quotes from removal companies and getting a 'feel' for their professionalism etc we decided to go with Pickfords. Three excellent men arrived at 9am this morning and have been busy packing ever since.......we have not had to do a thing.......except make tea/coffee's. We have made a great choice in Pickfords. Our leaving do is on Saturday 12th September, our wedding is on Saturday 12th and we fly on Thursday 17th.......so much to do but yet so little time!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorting through our belongings, selling things of no use, giving things away has been more emotional than I ever thought - at one stage I sat and cried over all the bottles of spirits we decided we wasn't taking with us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This morning I had another good cry, questioning if we are doing the right thing.....of course we are but only when my clear head is working! Will keep you posted.....

  24. Hi all, Recently received quotes from a range of removal companies to assist with the moving of our household "stuff" and a car to Australia. They provide the usual sales speak and provide reassuring words. No doubt there are questions I should ask but am not aware of (its the "unknown unknowns"!). Anyone have an experience where they wished they had known in advance so they could have found out. I guess I am trying to learn from others misfortunes - so apologies in advance. Any hints and tips would be well received. Thanks, Martin:spinny:
