Hi Just thinking about how I'm going to get my bikes (1 road, 1 mtb) to Melbourne. They're fairly high value (c £1k each). I think there are 3 options: In container / as baggage with me on flight / as a parcel. Anyone have any experience / thoughts on which is best? I guess I'd be happy to put 1 in the container, but I couldn't be without them both for 3-4 months (certainly not when I have a new city to explore!). How are Qantas at handling bikes as baggage? I'd probably invest in a proper bike box for the flight. Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Cheers John
We are lucky to have recently gone under offer. The shock tofay is that our buyer wants to complete by end of month :err: So we move out later this month :shocked: Our plan was to move to Australia early in 2012 (anticipated the sale of the house would take 6 months - not 6 weeks or less!). October is possibly the earliest we could go. Id prefer when I move from my house my furniture go straight into the container and sent to Oz. If we arrive in mid October, hows is that for timing? How long does stuff take to ship and should I be getting the quotes from shipping companies in now? Silly question I guess And the time from August to October - homeless and no furniture...did you move into a serviced apartment or stay with family? All of a sudden this is all moving a million miles per hr. This time last month my house was sat and noone wanted to buy it...sheesh (not complaining!)
