    What happens if you ship your household goods in a 20ft container and you cant provide a delivery address as yet . Do they hold your stuff in storage at the docks in oz till ur are set up in your rented accomidation. Is there an extra charge for this. Or is it a case of it takes that long to get there anyway you will be despearte for the stuff when it arrives. What if you only want to take some stuff and only require half a container. Do the charge you in overall weight. How do they estimate how much to charge you. Anyone recommend a shipping company.

    Shipping quotes - GULP!!

    hiya just got my quote through today from curtiss removals which are part of whites as they are down south and happily came over to the isle of wight but GULP!! for 1/2 a 20ft container with a motorbike (which cost about £800 to ship on its own) it was £2800 i couldnt believe it i'd thought that a whole 20 footer was £3000 but to spend that on 1/2 i was shocked. Called PSS and they said roughly the same cost. Robinsons said they would fone me back but that was 7hrs ago so i doubt i'll hear from them. i have someone coming to quote that on the island so we'll see how much it is for just my stuff and not my brothers bike. i look at my stuff and i think do i really need it all but i've got rid of so much stuff already this is stuff i'll need when i get a house, i mean theres only 2 small items of furniture and 3 tool boxes. i'm like blimey what would i be like if it wasnt just me!!! so tell me does this cost seem right? i think they have added bout £200 to come over here on the ferry etc. look forward to your advise thanks ali

    shipping vehicles

    Hi there, Has anyone got any information or adviceabout shipping vehicles to Oz? We are two very keen morotcylists and we are wondering if it is worth the time. trouble, effort and expence of shipping our two much loved motorcycles into Oz (if we get our visas)? We have looked on sites such as ebay and the choice of bikes seems rather limited compared to the UK - old, high mileage, outdated. So we are seriously considering shipping our two ladies - help??? Also has anyone experience HGV licence replacement? My O/H is being employer sponsored for our visa but he also has a HGV licence here in the UK. Just to edge out bets he wants to transfere this to his Oz licence if/whenwe get there. Does anyone know if/how this works? I know we only have to exchange our UK licences for Oz ones once we get there but is this the same for HGV?

  12. Hi there First time user of the forum. My wife and I are planning on moving to Brisbane by the end of this year with our wee boy. So far we have researched areas, rental prices, house prices, job availability and shipping costs for the cat!!! However, struggling to get a good indication on costs for taking a container full of all our worldly possessions and any tips on avoiding additional costs, like cleaning etc. As mentioned in the heading, we live in soctland, edinburgh to be exact and i am sure that will be a factor in the costs. All and any help will be gratefully received. Cheers Mattybhoy

    shipping / containers

    Hi, We are moving to Brisbane at the end of October, we hope to sell off most of our stuff, only taking personal belongings, so we only need to share a container. We haven't worked out how much we are taking in cubic feet, but it's not going to be a whole lot. Any suggestions of oversea removal companies with good rates would be appreciated. Thanks

    Shipping Insurance

    We have just had quotes to ship everything across. They have not included Insurance, which is extra. They have quoted us standard insurance, I guess for loss or damage and an additional cost if you want to insure against mildew or internal damage to electrical items. Has anyone got any views on whether you need to take out the additional insurance for your electrical stuff and mildew and has anyone got experience of electrical items being damaged internally and not working or mildew everywhere. We are taking a couple of telly's and CD / DVD player etc. Many thanks Dominic
