  1. Hi all, We are moving to Melbourne at the end of May and are going to be looking for rental properties. My question - which should be obvious anyway from the title - is whether most properties already have fridges and washing machines? I know they usually have cookers, but I'm not sure about white goods? We're renting out our house in Scotland and will be leaving our fridge and washing machine here, so we need to know whether we'll have to buy new ones out there. Thanks! Suzanne.

    Washing machines....

    Hi everyone, Some advice please! When we got here, I noticed that everyone seemed to have top-loader washing machines. We brought our front-loader over with us from the UK, and I have always been pretty happy with it. One thing I do find irritating is that every now and then, there seems to be a tiny little bit of mold that starts to grow on the rubber that seals the machine when the door closes. Is it only me? What am I doing wrong? It comes of really easily when I spay it with mold killer, but then I have to clean the mold killer off very carefully (or hubbies clothes tend to end up with bleach marks on the :embarrassed:) Any tips? Or is it just a case of investing in a top-loader? Do they have the same problems? Thanks Jules:wubclub:

    UK Washing Machines

    Hi All, Has anyone brought over a washing machine from the UK and had any problems using it? I ask the question as we know of someone who brought theirs and it wouldn't work. They said it was because the sockets here, although the same voltage as in the UK, are only rated at 10 amps as opposed to 13 amps in the UK. Has anyone else experienced this problem and if so, is there a solution. Our washer is quite new (less than 2 years old), so we don't want to have to buy a new one unless we have to.

    Washing machines?

    I'm looking to get a new washing machine. Right now my hubs has a top loader. From what I'm reading, it sounds like front loaders are better (washing and efficiency-wise). I want something of a decent size and with a hand wash cycle as well. Thing is, I have had a look at Consumer Reports US (which of course is of no help with models and brands here) and have looked at Choice here (which doesn't have much good info). What brands are best in Australia? Help! I don't want to spend over $1000, I don't think. Thanks! Suzer
  9. Hi, We are moving over to Springfield Lakes soon and looking to open a bank account. I understand that unlike UK where you can withdraw from cashpoints for free, over there if you withdraw from a machine that isn't your bank then they charge you. What seem to be the most common banks around Springfield Lakes area as we don't know the area and don't really want to travel miles and miles for free cashpoint! (sure we can go into Brisbane and get all of them) We don't intend to have credit cards if we can help it. Also, once settled we are looking at the Redland Bay area. Thanks in advance Seff
  10. Barking mad question......will a UK washing machine work in Australia? I understand from an electric point we are okay with white goods but what about the pipes/tap fittings?

    Australian Cash Machines

    Hi All, Does anyone know if it is possible to draw money from your british bank account using your british bank card at Australian cash points like you can in Europe????
  12. Hi Guys Could you help and tell me if Food Steamers, Coffee Machines, hairdryers straightners or Steam Irons work in Australia. I may pack some of the above but not worth it if they don't work or it is going to cost heaps of money to have adapted.:spinny: Thank you for taking the time to read my thread and for any help or advice you may have!!

    washing machines and hoovers

    Hiya everybody I've just had the man from the removal company to come around and give me a quote to stick everything we own in a container. He has advised us that it would not be worth taking our washing machine or hoover as it is unlikely that we will be able to clean them to a suitable standard for the Australian customs and excise. Is this true or is it a bit of baloney. Anyone out there taken their own washing machines and hoovers.

    Automatic Washing Machines?

    Hi guys, please can anyone tell me.....(don't laugh!!) Do they sell front loading automatic washing machines in Australia? I know when I've been out there, they have been the top loading style, which I really don't like...found them rough on my clothes and not as convenient as UK washers. I have a combined washer/tumble dryer here in the UK....do they sell these in Australia? If not, could I bring a new one with me from the UK and it work ok with by swapping the plug from a UK one to an Aussie one? I know it's easy to dry clothes in Oz...but when I was out there, mine were always like cardboard when I brought them in from the washing line...I like to soften them up in the tumbler dryer....me no likey scratch towels!!! :no: Jenny
