  1. Hi, we've had loads of quotes which we narrowed down to the two companies above. Both their estimators came round and gave very different estimates for volume. One of the estimators was very helpful the other just more business-like. When I followed this up one of the companies was quite helpful and has given me cost estimates on both volumes, the other wasn't quite as helpful. Has anyone had experience with these two companies? Just to help us make the final decision. They both seem to have their pros & cons at the moment when I have dealt with them, but not enough to put me off and we did shortlist them because we had heard good things. If there isn't much difference between the two then we will just go with the one that is £150 cheaper, it will go towards purchasing the two new Australian child car seats (groan!) PS - We need to make our decision and book by tomorrow as we need to pick up next week! (& yes they both say they can do this) Thank you.
  2. Hi, Ive had 3 quotes to take my stuff from London to Perth: John Mason vs Anglo Pacific vs Crown Crown are the more expensive of the 3. All seem reputable companies. Price is one way to differentiate but would like to gauge people's experiences as well. Thanks, Marc
  3. I know there are loads of threads about which shipping company to use but I'd welcome opinions here ... We have had 5 companies out to give quotes ... my two favourites (and the best quotes) are : John Mason and Dorree Bonner .... I leaned towards John Mason as they get such good reviews on here but the guy that came to do the quote was a bit of a "wide boy" and although I liked him I wasnt sure how well he knew his stuff/didn't real "sell" JM...!! I have heard much less about Dorree Bonner but their guy was professional, polite, knew his stuff and was not pushy ... They are pretty much the same cost .... I'm struggling to decide ... we'll be moving from the Midlands incase any one knows more about the "packing teams" in this area??? Please PM me if you dont recommend either and let me know why!! Thanks everyone

    John Mason - thumbs up!!

    We had our furniture delivered last Friday and want to praise the services of the team at John mason and Wridgways :notworthy: They were fab from start to finish and made the whole process smooth and stress free! John Mason were willing to negotiate on price where others didn't and the office staff kept us informed every step of the way! The lads doing the packing were friendly and efficient both in the UK and Australia. We would definitely use them again and would highly recommend them.

    John Mason Shipping

    Credit were credit is due we used John Mason to ship our furniture to Perth,Secret Harbour the firm this side was Wridgeways and all our furniture arrived in one piece the only damage was a small dent to the back of our microwave everything else no problems our wicker basket came through no extra charges for fumigation a chiminera a bird bath all my tools all came through and customs did check a few things so i think it could be pot luck if you get charged or not we had to pay au$80 for delivery because its outside the 25 miles range so all i can say we are very pleased with the service we received and how different everything seams to be when you get all you belongings life is on the up bring on the summer lol

    John Mason removal quote

    John Mason have quoted us £3150 for the complete service to Perth. This seems really good, especially as Pickfords were £4026...however can I ask if there are any hidden costs we need to be aware of with Mason's apart from the Aus customs charge & insurance? We still have Anglo Pacific to come round but tbh if mason's will agree to £3k (got to try!) and there are no horror stories I think we'll go with Mason's. (ps the reason this quote is so reasonable I think is because we're in temporary accomodation after we sold our house so lots of stuff is already wrapped!) Cheers!
  8. Just thought people might be interested. We recently used John Mason and their partners Wridgeways in Aus to move ourselves to Geelong near Melbourne. They were all great, the packers 2 great guys who did an excellent job, and the unpackers at this end also good blokes who did a really good job without even so much as a slight scuff on any wall anywhere (and our house has a dogleg in the hall). They completed the entire delivery within 2 months of it setting off from our house in the UK which given that it was over xmas as well we thought was really good. Overall can't fault them, the only item which was even slightly damaged was a storage jar which has a slight crack but it is pretty old, all our other stuff has arrived in exactly the condition that we sent it (which includes UK dust on some of the furniture !!!) SO anyone looking for a removers, JM were really good and a decent price for us as well. Definitely worth a look. :jiggy:
  9. Hi peeps i know there prob has been info on these removers b4 but they have been recommended by someone but nobody knows better than you guys so can anyone shed any light on them and let us know if there any good cheers Ron
