    Complete housefull of furniture

    Hi we are returning to the UK and we have just sold our 3 bedroom house here on the Sunshine Coast. We have decided not to take any furniture back with us so we have a whole house full of furniture to sell. All of it is in VGC and nothing is over 5yrs old, most only 2yrs old. For example we have queen size beds (2 used for guest stays only) lounge suites, electrical goods, kitchen stuff, pots pans and crockery in fact the whole box and dice! We will even be selling our car nearer our departure date. Does anyone here in Oz know of someone arriving from the UK who needs furniture or needs to buy good stuff for a reasonable price. Ideally we would like to sell it in one go (offers around $10,000) but we will look at selling individual pieces. We only heard about Poms in Oz the other day so maybe some one can help. Unfortunately we will be leaving Oz around mid April 2014 so time is a bit short. Any help greatly appreciated. Steve and Caroline
  2. Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum, even though it is only 4 months till we move!! Bit scary as I haven't been able to organise anything yet due to an operation. However, I'm on it now!! I just wanted to ask all you knowledgable people about taking electrical items over with you.... - I see from a few posts that most people seem to take electricals/white goods with them. My husband is not so keen as he doesn't like the idea of using adapter plugs for everything - in that it might be unsafe to do this on a big scale. I'm clueless about this kind of thing....can you just change the plug to an aussie style one? Thanks so much in advance for any advice. Sx:err:
  3. Moving out to Melbourne 14th Sept. Just getting shipping organised but can anyone advise me on whether it is worth shipping electrical items? Thinking mainly of the TV, Nintendo Wii, kettle, iron etc.... oh & my favorite lamps :cute: xx
  4. Hi PIO we have got the shipping people coming this week to give us a price for shipping to Brisbane. Wwe have been disscussing what were thinking of taking and its not going to be that mush as we think it may be to much, and to be honest we will be downsize anyway when we get to Aus. depending on what price we get, do all the main shipping companys do small containers etc, just to ship boxes over, plus some electricals goods, TV's, stereo's Photos, xbox etc. any information will be appreciated Cheers, Troy
