  1. Hi All I arrived in Sydney a couple of weeks ago and am still finding my way around. Not sure if such thing exists as both reputable and "cheap" but does anyone know of a reputable hairdresser in Sydney, or more specifically Darlinghurst? Rach :biggrin:
  2. Hi there, My partner and I are immigrating to Adelaide, South Australia. We were just wondering if anyone can reccommend reasonably priced short-term accommodation from the 31st August?? I've looked online at hotels, motels, BnB's, self-catering apartments and serviced apartments... I have even gone so far as to look at houseshares Gumtree:) We are looking for a place for about 4 weeks whilst we view apartments to rent long-term. Can anyone suggest: 1.) Which area would be best in Adelaide? 2.) Any names of hotels, motels, BnB's, self-catering apartments etc... We really just want somewhere clean and respectable that isn't going to cost the earth!! A few people have reccommended Glenelg but apartments/hotels in this area seem really costly. Long-term rental isn't expensive but looking for a place short-term seems to cost an arm and a leg! Many thanks for any advice that can be given!
  3. Hello all, after having read a good few posts along the general lines of "everything is more expensive in Oz", seeing the reactions of the poor folk (including me!) who are about to move here or just got here, I would like to inject some optimism into the forum and report on my day's activities purchasing household items.... I do lead an exciting life.... Pegs - $2 either from dollar store or Kmart (sorry to start with pegs, I was told to buy out Asda as they cost upwards from $10...) A box of crockery, 18 pieces $16 from Target - seen similar for $19 in Kmart Set of cutlery in a tray, with good cutting knives £10 Kmart Plastic chopping boards $4 Kmart Towels (large) good quality $5 each Target Wine glasses $1!!! reduced section in Ikea A box of 6 tumblers $3 Target Set of 3 large kitchen knives + scissors $19 Target Plenty of duvet sets, sheets etc starting from $9 Large mugs $2 dollar store Huge pan with glass lid $18 dollar store Set of 3 saucepans with lids $12 Kmart Great ceramic colander $10 Target Kettle $9 Kmart or $12 in Target I won't go on. The message I am trying to put across is that if you look around everything isn't double, triple, 4x what you pay in the UK and if you need basics for those first few days before your container arrives then you should be OK. The shopping centres here are very large, I should know as I used to work in the Trafford Centre, and they are bigger. There are plenty of shops on offer and you will find the price you are looking for. Of course Sydney does seem quite expensive in the CBD, but it is a large city and London is just the same..... but you don't have to eat out in the heart of Sydney every night!!! We had a pizza in the Little Italy called Leichhardt the other night and it was only $15. Hope this has been useful. All the best Naomi xxx
  4. Hi guys, I am after some help. I am looking to emigrate to Perth and was wondering if any one could tell me of any nice areas that are not too expensive. Thanks so much guys. xx
  5. HI We will be leaving the UK in about 8 weeks and I need to book our dog into quarantine etc - have had a quote from Air Pets (OMG! how expensive). I would be interested to hear from other families who have moved their pets to Oz - who they used - how much it cost them in total and how they and their pets coped with the separation (its the OH I am worried about, more than the dog:biggrin:) Our house sale exchanges on 30th June and I need to get this sorted as soon as possible. Thanks Jo ps we are going to Sunshine Coast - Mooloolaba/Maroochydore area.
  6. We arrive in Melbourne on 6 December (3 adults) and we can't find any reasonably priced furnished accommodation for two or three weeks. Those park benches can get mighty uncomfortable. Anybody suggest any sites. I have looked at a few, but they seem to be advertising hotels and bed and breakfast. We were looking to the north east suburbs but at this rate, anywhere!!!
  7. Hi guys, New to the forum, submitted the prospective marriage visa for a move to melbourne in January. Just trying to get the many tasks sorted, the main one being getting some quotes for moving our furniture. Can anyone recommend a few shipping companies? Trying to find the cheapest quote we can. Sofa, table, bed, other small furniture and many boxes, any help is greatly appreciated. As you will all know, the costs for moving are adding up so trying to keep within budget. Thanks, hope to hear back from someone soon. Andy.
  8. Hi Guys, As an ozzie that moved to London 4 years ago and now moving back home after buying a house and now having a house full of furniture that i need shipping back to oz (cheaper in the uk than buying in oz these days) and spending days of shopping around to find a decent priced but above board shipping company, i settled on one that was great to deal with, cheapest by far and shipped everything 100% without a problem. I hope people don't think i am part of this company, as i am not, but rather believe that if a company does a great job that is well priced you should let others know about it! Basing on my own experience only, Wentworth International Movers www.wimove.co.uk as mentioned above was by far the cheapest and did what they say they would, when they would, so if my expereince can help some of you with this i thought i would mention it!
