  1. Brilliant, id recommend. They came in at the same price as all the rest of the quotes in the UK - 4 bed house with garage and garden - 20ft container = £4300 + $400 when in Oz. You can insure as one bulk load and claim for single items which we found so much easier than doing each single item, they keep you informed, they pack well and get it across the sea safely. The Oz side were great, full of communications and on the day of delivery 3 lads arrived at 730am and emptied a 20ft container (145 boxes and white goods)in less than an hour :err: and after they left a van turned up with more staff to help us unpack and take away any rubbish - we didnt even ask for it. For service quality - excellent Breakages - inevitable - 1 glass and a ornament so far

    Allied pickfords - good or bad?

    Hi Just had a few quotes and despite being the most expensive I think I am going to go with Allied Pickfords. I have looked all over the site and have only seen good stuff, but I thought I would just check. Anyone had anything other than good service from them? Ta
  3. Dear all, I am an OT moving out to Oz around October time and wondered whether there were any other allied health professionals out there who have gone through the whole process already or whether anyone had any advice / tips?? I have noticed there are alot of nurses moving over to Oz, but havent really seen any OT's or physiotherapists on here. I have posted a thread before on Occupational Therapy in Australia, but had no replies. Be really good to hear from someone!!
  4. Hi everyone I have been away, my Dad has been desperately ill & I flew to Durham in the worlds smallest plane (BMI) OMG I hope the ones to OZ are bigger! - I dont think I can keep my eyes closed for 22 hours!! Anyway when Ive got back I had a letter from pickfords but OH says "dont use them" -he read that they have been sold off by their US owners & the staff has been made redundant & that they will not be the same any more? Has anyone else read this ? I was really pleased with their response to our quote queries & they where my front runner for shipping at the moment. Take care Rachel

    Anyone used Allied Pickfords?

    Can anyone help? We have now had three companies round to quote for our shipping costs. All quotes were fairly similar so not much to go on with that. Have heard everyone raving about Crown but I didnt like their representative who came round to the house - too much like a sales person and slagging off the other companies who I had been in touch with. So I dont really want to go with them. Really liked Allied Pickfords rep so thinking of going with them but are we right to make a decision on this basis?!!! Both companies are also based in Sydney aswell as here in England. Any advice would be great - thanks!!! :unsure:

    Allied Pickfords

    Hi Anyone used Allied Pickfords for their removals? They seem quite thorough. Paperwork seems extensive, maybe not as bad as visa application though! Are they helpful? We have Crown coming today to quote, so will update you on them too. Thanks Mazza:err:

    PSS or Allied Pickfords?

    We have narrowed our choice of removals firms down to PSS or Allied. Both seem to provide a good service and prices are not too different. Can anyone recommend either - or maybe tell us a reason not to use either??? We really need to get sorted so any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
