    Plastic shopping bags.

    On the news earlier the WA powers are trying to ban the use of plastic carrier bags from all shops, as it is having an impact on the local coastline apparently? I am all for clean beaches and a cleaner environment, but when ever we walk the beaches here i can honestly say hand on heart we never see any litter only washed up seaweed. Now the areas around some shopping centres are sadly beginning to show the signs of litter drop, but thats allsorts of rubbish not just the grey plastic bags?

    Plastic boxes

    Hi I will probably be moving in the next couple of months. We're just starting to have a sort out in the loft and so far we are putting a lot of stuff into plastic boxes. When we do have the shippers in, are we allowed to keep it in them or do we have to use their boxes? I only ask as there's quite a good deal on the boxes near me at the moment and I was going to buy a few more - but its not worht it if I have to empty them and use something else.
  4. Hi Everyone, I've been doing my research on shipping companies as we need to ship a few boxes (clothes, shoes and a few sentimental bits), aka excess baggage, out to Adelaide. Every company I have come across use cardboard boxes to ship stuff out in. We have a few empty plastic storage boxes we are thinking of using as they will come in handy once we arrive in Australia. Has anyone used these for shipping before? If so, how'd it go? Would you recommend using them? Would they have a higher chance of breaking or what? Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  8. Hi folks, i have a question about storage boxes. I am about to start de-cluttering my home and beginning to have a long overdue sort out, with a view in mind of chucking stuff out that I am not taking to Australia with me. However, what I am going to keep, I want to store. Now my first thought is to store these things in plastic boxes but I think I read on here that if you putting things in a container for shipment they recommend not using plastic boxes, is this right??? Thanks Mandisfam
  9. Hi All My husband is a sheet metal worker by trade but has been doing plastic fabrication for the last few years. We are hoping to move to Victoria in the next few months we have our visa but are just waiting to sell our house. Is anyone in this line of work, will he find it easy to find work? I am doing all the panicing and hubby seems to be burying his head in the sand, I think he thinks a job will just drop into his lap!!:skeptical: We are looking at moving to Geelong area. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Dawn
