    Musical equipment

    Does anyone have an idea about the rules on shipping/importing my musical equipment into Australia? I have a home recording studio full of equipment & instruments, and as i am a sound engineer i guess it would technically be regarded as business equipment, and not personal effects. Any ideas on where i stand with this please? Thanks

  12. Hi everyone, got a 12 month visa for Oz, I`m airfreighting my studio equipment, guitars, mixing desk etc. which has cost me quite a lot of cash to send, does anyone know if there are any duties etc. to be paid at the other end? It is my own personal belongings. The company that is sending the gear says there is`nt, but you know what some of these guy`s are like, they say there is`nt any other charges but once it`s there it`s easy to say the stuff can`t be released and delivered to the door until it`s paid. Maybe I`m just being over cautious but any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks. Terry.

  15. Hi Guys We are hopefully moving to QLD in early 2011 and wanting to take some of our electrical goods eg. washing machine, lamps etc. Is it best to get the plugs changed over from UK to OZ before we leave (anyone know any companies in the UK that can do this? If we waited until we were in Australia, would it just be a case of going to the local DIY store for new plugs (anyone know if the wiring is similar?) or trying to get an electrician to come and sort for us. Cheers Juls x

  19. Hi, wonder if those of you who have already made the move could help us a bit. OH is tape and jointer/painter decorator and as money will be tight we were hoping to take as many tools out as possible. Thing is we had people in to quote for shipping the other day and they said that most of the stuff would have to go as they were covered in paint/plaster etc. He started to look at brushes/roller cages etc and realised that just that stuff would be over £200 to replace. We are currently trying to clean them up as much as poss but just how clean do they have to be? Paint still on the inside bits of the rollers and paint splatters on brush handles etc other than that not to bad. Just how clean do they have to be? Hope you can help as we can really do without having to buy everything new over there. Thanks Sarah :arghh:
  20. I will be shipping out a fair amount of tools etc and just wondered how clean they want them. I ve got a few trowels etc that have gone a bit rusty in shed, if i brush off or scrape off excess and spray with WD40 (to stop them rerusting) will this be ok.

    Sending Computer Equipment Securely

    Hi all, Starting to look at what to take to Oz and I have a desktop and laptop I would like to take with us. The laptop can accompany me on the flight, but the desktop will have to go some other way. I will be pulling off data on to an external drive, but do not really want to strip it off the main computer drives. Any thoughts as to security and shipping - in other words the risk in someone extracting data off a pc for ulterior motives. With concerns over identity theft etc I am worried about handing over I.T. kit to any third party. Anyone with advice / experience out there? Thanks, Martin
  22. Hi, Can any sparks out there, especially "IN" Oz tell me whether the sizes of things are generally the same as here? What i mean is things like bushes, SWA glands, conduit, Crimp lugs, etc. I'm going to Queensland in September and as you know us sparks like buying tools. Well, i don't want to buy stuff i can't use over there. I'm going to send over my tools in a container, some of them i'd like to get new. i'm going to leave myself with stuff i can get by with for the last couple of weeks. Any advice would be great . Regards Keith.

    Baby Equipment

    Hi All Does anyone know of any good website to buy baby things, you know the usual, high chair, potty, car seats etc a website a bit like mothercare. I have decided to be very organised, we are leaving everything behind here in uk and starting a fresh for our new life. So thought it would be a good idea to buy the essentials that I will need as soon as we arrive just now. I have an address that I can get things posted to in Oz so I can start buying now. I have had a look through google etc but doesnt seem to be anything like mothercare or even argos. thanks Mandy

    For those of you who camp can you tell me whether it is easy to get calor gas for a camping stove. When I was there last time we had a stove that took LPG and bought it back with us only to find that it is difficult to LPG here. So which one should I bring back? Thanks
