  1. Hi All, Just watched ep4 I think, about the flooding, meter girls help, backpackers, and RM Daz from Redcliffe who moved 2yrs after ex wife and 2 daughters. He holds a special place in my heart as has had a similar journey to me when I went to QLD, in that he has cancer since his arrival. I am now back in the UK, but planning a return 2020 or before all being well. Wondered if anyone knew Daz, or could pass him onto this thread as would love to hear about his journey, treatments and share stories together. Hoping he is well, and enjoying the QLD fun. Thanks :biggrin:

    Marine Insurance

    We are moving back to the UK in September and was wondering if anyone has purchased marine insurance separate to the removal company. :confused:
  6. Hi all, Having a bit of a rough time over here at the moment... My partner can't find work in her field despite being here in Adelaide. She is an Aquatic Resource Management masters graduate with an Honours and Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology... Fresh from Uni so no experience. We are really struggling with finding her a job, and scared that she will miss the boat if she doesn't get employed soon. We are worried that if the situation doesn't get better, she will have to return to the UK to work whilst I will have to stay here... Panic has set in... Does anyone have any contacts in Marine Biology / Aquatic Science in SA. Or even in the whole of Australia? We've been looking for 11 months now to no avail... All want experience, which is great if you can get it... Please help :confused:

    Marine Insurance or not

    Dilemma here... We are shipping stuff over as a part container load a week friday. But to be honest the stuff we are shipping only has sentimental value and isn't really worth much at all. Hubby is saying not to bother with insurance because we couldn't replace it anyway. What do you guys think? Has anyone shipped without insurance? Is anyone intending to ship without insurance?? Your thoughts would be appreciated :biggrin:
  8. I am currently seeking Marine Engineers and Naval Architects to be part of the Australian Warfare Destroyer project in Adelaide, South Australia. If you are seeking long-term employment security, career advancement and the opportunity to be involved with Australia's largest shipbuilding project, I would love to hear from you by email on j.gaitaneris@mpsgroup.com.au.
  9. What is everyone's opinion on marine transit insurance? At £2K this is a very expensive form of insurance, anyone not taken out this insurance, anyone has and had trouble claiming, anyone think that its a complete rip off and waste of time?
  10. I am looking towards emigrating to Australia but I will also be prepared to change my present job with Global Marine Systems in the UK to a job in Australia. Does anyone know of Offshore / Marine companies that are looking for electrical / electronic officers?
  11. Good Evening Guys I have arranged for Simpson Removals to move our stuff over to Perth, I have read on here they are pretty good and their quote seemed really reasonable, however they have quoted 2.9% for marine insurance does anyone know of anywhere that maybe cheaper? So far Simpsons have seemed to be totally on the ball still time will tell!! Thank you for taking the time to read my thread. Any replies greatly appreciated.
  12. Hi Guys Well we have decided whom we are going to ship with and today got the insurance quote and nearly fell of my chair !! Ok we have a 20ft container and tried to make our insurance list as small as possible but the value was approx £22,000.00 We have just been quoted by our shippers £594.00 for the insurance. Have you used the insurance given to you by your shippers or has anyone else gone to a marine broker and got a better quote? If so can you please give me the details so that I can phone around. Thank you for any help
