  1. I have inherited a motorcycle that is located in Hampshire, England. It isn't worth anything as it doesn't work. However, many of the parts would be useful to me as I am restoring a similar motorcycle at the moment here in Australia (Sunshine Coast, Queensland). I have contacted a few shippers now and no-one seems to want to help. I am not interested in all the hassle to ship a complete motorcycle as it is not registered in my name (not registered at all actually) so will strip it down when I go back to visit family in June and will either have to get someone like DHL to courier the parts or find someone currently living in the south of England but will be moving to Queensland in the second half of 2020 and may have space in a container. I know that's a long shot but is there anyone here that might be in a position to help? Cheers Bill
  2. Hello Everyone, Every exited to have received our visas and looking forward to call Adelaide our new home and meet new people. I know these queries would have been addressed here before many times. But i am still unclear after a lot of digging. But any additional advises on the below queries will help me greatly to clear my doubt clouds. I am planning to move with my 5 year old son in August 2020 from Dubai. At the moment just us as my husband will stay back, so he can finance us till i get a job and settle. So i am all the more nervous but thats the safer option. My queries:- Q 1- my son turned 5 yrs old this October 2019 and is currently in third term of his KG 1 here. looks like we have to break his schooling here. the SA education website says this -- If your child turns 5 on or after 1 May, they can start primary school (reception) the first day of term 1 of the following year. Which means my son can join primary school only in january 2020 rite ?? plz correct me if i am wrong. My question is does schools in south australia take kids in between their term. ? Because he will have to do a full reception again from jan 2021 till dec. and he will complete 6 yrs by then. Also can a kid join grade 1 straight if they reach the age criteria. Even if their preschool is incomplete from the place where they are coming ? Q 2- I am confused whether I should get our stuffs like kitchen utensils , tv , music system, books and few personal items collected over period of time. No furniture's or heavy home appliances though. Is it worth shipping them or should I just sell them and buy everything from scratch. Which is a big pain in the **s and also expensive I guess compared to Dubai. Q 3 - I have read in many places that getting the first house is a big deal. bcz many landlords dont give without job or fund proof. in our case my husband will still be working in dubai. So is that proof enough. his bank statements, Our dubai home electricity bills or tenancy papers. Will that help ??? Finally anyone here who have migrated from Dubai or planning to mig soon..!!? Looking forward to all your valuable comments from ur experiences. Thank you ....
  3. My daughter in Australia has been left her grandmothers very old Singer sewing Machine. It’s on a wooden table as it was originally a treadle but was converted to electric. She got a quote in uk to ship from UK to Australia and was horrified to be quoted £600!! Does anyone have any idea of a way to get it over there reasonably cheaply?
  4. Hi all I was wondering if anyone here has shipped household goods from Malta to Australia and whether they used a company in Malta they'd recommend. More generally, anybody have any recommendations for shipping companies in Australia, as I may opt to hire an Ozzie company to manage the move instead. Thanks for any help
  5. Hi, I would like to check if there is anyone here residing in Singapore currently and also doing the big move to Australia? If there is, I would appreciate some help to provide some recommendation for shipping services. Thanks.
  6. I hoping to hear some feedback or reviews for shipping items back to the UK. I currently have narrowed things down to two companies... Chess and Seven Seas. Both are similar price Chess Pro's - they pack everything for us. Cons - partial container Seven Seas - Movecube means our items are separated. Con - if we've miscalculated the size of the cube we are stuck! As we only really have clothes, kitchen items and personal items, no furniture, I'd like to know if anyone has experiences with these two companies. Does have a partial container mean our items are more likely to get lost or damaged? I've only done shipping when we moved here but it was dealt with by my work so we didn't over think it!
  7. Hi all The removal people turn up soon. Exciting! We're moving from the UK to Sydney. I have a question for anyone out there that has sent their vinyl records in a shipping container. Do you have any tips or advice? Anything you're glad you did or would change if you had to do it again? Anything learnt about insurance (I haven't finalised that yet)? At the moment I've got all the records (several thousand of them, valued at around £50K) in plastic boxes and am planning on putting some desiccant pouches in each box. Any advice or lessons learnt would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Jez
  8. Hi Everyone , Moving back to England in a few months just wanted an idea of some good shipping companies i used crown when we came here and they were very professional. They did everything from dismantling furniture to packing everything. Any recommendations will be really appreciated, thanks !!!
  9. Hi, Has anyone used movecube? Do most people use a container if they plan to ship furniture or would a movecube suffice? Trying to figure out if we could fit everything in a large movecube? Anyones experiences on this would be helpful! We have a 4 bedroom house but won’t be taking any furniture from the bedrooms so would really just be a suite, dining room table and chairs and white goods, and of course boxes of household and personal items, honestly even thinking about it all is giving me a serious headache ?
  10. We are due to move to Melbourne in around 3 months time. Whilst the move is planned, we didn’t anticipate such a quick timeline. We have just got a new car on finance in the uk, and given we will be stung financially if we hand it back, would like to take it with us. However, we’ve seem that you need to have owned the car for 12 months, and at the point of moving we will have owned it for only 6. Is there any way around this? I have relatives I’m guessing could import it but that would be quite complicated as I’d need to sell it to them? Any ideas?

    Shipping Question

    Hey Guys, Has anyone used OSS shippers (not PSS) before? Ive had 3 quotes and they were middle priced but great friendly service so far, good gut feeling. Look forward to any reviews...good or bad. Thanks
  14. Morning all, We've just received quotes in for a 40ft container shipment of household goods from Melb to UK (southampton). Eye-watering... If you've done the move back to the UK from Melbourne, I'd really appreciate if you could let me know some ballpark figures of what it cost you. Many thanks in advance, R
  15. We have a 12 month 600 visitor visa and are heading to Australia in May. We applied for a 143 cpv in June 2015 so, providing we don’t develop any nasty illnesses before the medical, we should be granted pr during our “visit” We are shipping our furniture & stuff with Doree Bonner & while awaiting a reply from them I thought I’d post my query here. I’ve been looking at an info leaflet on sending unaccompanied personal effects. It seems to say you can’t send clothes if you’re not a permanent resident. This seems a bit strange when furniture and even furs are allowed. If we send clothes what happens if they’re not allowed? Are they confiscated or is there tax to pay? Here’s the link https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/Factsheets/Documents/sendingpersonalbelongingstoaustraliafinal2015feb17.pdf
  16. Hi all, We were granted our visas this week (hurrah!). We aren’t taking a lot with us but we would like to send a couple of suitcases ahead of us (I have relatives there already so we can have them delivered there). I’ve done a few online quotes and they seem extortionate. Would we be better to pay for extra baggage on the flight and take it on the plane with us or is there a reasonable company out there for sending just a couple / few suitcases? It doesn’t matter how long it would take to ship them over, I’ll happily start packing now! This is Midlands UK to Sydney. We’d appreciate any advice.
  17. Hello all, I’m new to the forum so hello to start! I’m moving to Perth in May this year with my girlfriend who’s from Perth. Ive lived there previously for two years on WHV’s. I’m a tiler by trade and want to bring my main tools with me. A manual tile cutter, a dewalt combi drill with two lithium ion battery’s, a dewalt laser level with one lithium ion battery and two spirit levels. All items are in separate secure boxes/cases. What I’m wondering is, does anyone have any experience of shipping simular items and what company’s did people use? I also have about 2 or 3 large suitcases and two push bikes I’d like to ship over. I’m not being lazy I have searched the forum looking for information on this. I heard through the grape vine you cant ship drill battery’s for some reason so any information regarding this would be great. Thanks so much in advance : )
  18. Does anyone have hints / tips / pitfalls / value-for-money-opinions for importing a diesel car from the UK ? It’s not super precious/expensive - quite the opppsite - but a good runner which we’ve looked after, with a residual value here which is much lower than what it’s ‘worth’ to us when including what we’ve spent on it over the years ( if this makes sense to anyone ) - Many thanks
  19. I know there are a few threads on the subject, just thought my own experience might help. I know I trawled the internet looking for reviews! The choice: MoveCube or packing company? I found the prospect of self-packing and loading quite daunting (I was on my own and had some pretty heavy stuff to move). So for peace of mind I went for Anglo Pacific (which had been recommended by two friends who had moved to Australia) over MoveCube. Preparing the move: getting a quote, an estimate, a date - Quote: I had a phone call to AP during which I was asked to roughly estimate how much stuff I would be shipping to Oz so they could give me a provisional quote. No fret if it's a bit off the mark or if you can't think of everything, they want a rough idea and if on moving day it turns out you are bringing more (or less) than estimated, the quote will be adjusted. Just don't forget to mention the piano or any Big Thing that doesn't lead itself to improvised packing Moving day was confirmed over email. - Making a list of my belongings: it helped for getting an accurate insurance quote, but also for flagging any problematic stuff that customs might object to (organic material, tools, etc...), and which will have to be declared on the customs form. - Insurance: AP offered insurance, but following the general wisdom I went with a third party (Letton Percival). In the end I had no claim to push so I can't tell you how Letton Percival are in a time of crisis! All I can say is that I found them very efficient and professional in our communications. - Arranging parking space for the truck: I had off-street parking so that was never an issue, but this is definitely something they will ask you about. Moving day Miscommunication between the office and the packers meant the truck was 5 hours late... so that wasn't great. But I have to say that once there the packers worked with incredible speed. In less than an hour they had packed and loaded about 25 boxes. Which was a good dozen more than estimated (I had way more books than I thought during that first conversation with AP!) but that wasn't a problem: the packers are prepared for that turn of event and always bring extra boxes. The quote was re-adjusted accordingly, but I thought the final quote was fair. The packers bring their experience of shipping goods to Australia and can advise you on some items you're not sure about (I thought about bringing sand and seashells from the motherland but they advised against it, so I left it behind). They also put all the potentially problematic stuff (I had objects made out of wood) together and labelled the boxes accordingly - that way if Customs wanted to check all the wooden objects they could go straight for those boxes instead of opening them all. All in all, knowing my belongings were packed in accordance to customs requirements justified the extra amount, I thought. Not breaking my back trying to load a dozen box of books into a cube is also pretty neat. Row, Row, Row Your Boat The container took a couple of months to arrive in Australia, which was the estimate I had been given. AP kept me up to date with the shipping status over email and gave me a tracking number as well. Christmas Delivery Day Once in Australia, Allied Pickfords took over for delivery. Once again, the office and truck didn't seem to communicate that well as my delivery didn't arrive on the agreed day, so I had to call again and rearrange the delivery. All boxes were accounted for, HOWEVER a couple were bashed in... one of them pretty seriously - though thankfully the content was unaffected, so I didn't have to investigate any further. But there is no telling when that occurred: on the truck? on the ship? in customs? It's not like anyone left a note saying hey, sorry we handled this one a bit roughly... The boxes containing my wooden objects looked like they had indeed been opened by customs. Nothing was removed/destroyed. In the end my belongings arrived pretty much in the state I had left them, save for a few books which ended up with crumpled pages, and a couple of tins which suffered some bumps. Pretty sure this occurred during packing, as the packers probably wanted to make up for their late arrival and just crammed things into boxes. But this is very minor stuff, and there's not telling I'd have done any better! And on the other side, all my fragile objects (vases, frames etc) were completely fine. So there you go! Not perfect, but nothing is, and overall I'm pretty satisfied . Should I ever need to move back to Europe(God forbid) I'd probably use the same companies.
  20. Hi Everyone, My husband and I are moving back to Australia in September and are planning shipping now. Sorry for all the questions, I am getting lost in information online and struggling to find real answers. Shipping companies havent been overly useful either and don’t really want to give much advice. We will be taking two sportsbikes (sv650 and a 600 ninja) back with us and about 10-20 medium size boxes (not sure how much stuff yet) and no furniture (but considering taking our new 50 inch tv as we got it extemely cheap here due to an argos mess up ha) I’ve never had to ship anything before aside from a few boxes when we moved here from aus so wanted to get some advice. So far we’ve had one quote from White and Co who work with a firm in Townsville, Queensland (where we are moving back to) I was interested in them as we want door to door shipping and the local company in Townsville recommened them. As I havent had quotes from anyone else yet not sure how competitive they are. I also cant see much mention of them on this forum. I wanted to ask a few questions: Has anyone used White and co before and how did they find their service? (Im going to get quotes from other companies recommeneded on here as well) I think im going to grab spare boxes from work and roughly pack the majority of the stuff up and stack against a wall so we can get very specific quotes without speculative over estimating on the salesmans behalf. I will still get the shipping company to pack everything in their own boxes for the move. Which brings me onto my next question, is it definately better in terms of passing customs quickly if the boxes are marked as packed by the shipping company? Because we are shipping motorcycles I’m concerned that not all companies specialise in this and I need to be careful with who we choose? white and co for example say they take our bikes away and fully crate them individually before going into the container. Slightly concerned I don’t get to see the bikes being packed and crated, especially since all insurance terms ive been reading state they dont cover vehicle scratches/dents etc. Nothing to stop someone messing about on our bikes in a warehouse somewhere and dropping them before shipping! Also regarding the bikes, if anyone has experience, how clean did you get the bike before shipping, do we need to strip them back and get every crumb of dirt off them basically to showroom condition? Did you remove the fuel, oil and battery before the shipping company took it, do they pack the battery separately or can it not be shipped? I’ve looked into the import permit and docs required and we meet the conditions so i will make application for that soon. Aside from the import permit im under the assumption that I dont need to do any other paperwork if i hire a company managing the move of the bikes along with our boxes? Once the bikes get to Aus, what experience has anyone had in terms of additinal fees that might crop up and any further paperwork i might need to deal with even when the shipping company are managing the move for me door to door? When do customs value your bike and issue you costs for duty, does this get sent to the shipping company and passed onto us? Any other hints, tips, advice or warnings anyone can give regarding shipping the bikes would be much appreciated, i’m really anxious about seeing them at the other end to find theyve been messed with or a scratched up/ had parts stolen etc. Regarding electronics, we would be taking our 50 inch tv, a custom gaming pc and a playstation. Any advice on shipping electronics appreciated as well. I’m reading on here that basically everyone gets insurance through a separate company and most seem to go with Letton Percival, any other suggestions also? Sorry again for so many questions, i have been reading alot of forums but couldnt seem to find much info on what I’m seeking more clarification on. Thanks very much in advance for all advice!

    Shipping claim

    Just moved back to Oz, on opening our furniture we found quite a lot of damage. After contacting the insurance company we have just been told we are entitled to £67.50, wow, turns out there is a 1% excess on the policy. My advice, think carefully and check your policy, these companies rely on you being stressed and pre-occupied, it may not be worth taking out insurance, when you consider the premium. It may be cheaper to save the premium and use it for replacements or repairs, in my case premium £348, compensation £67.50.

    Shipping Question

    So we've started boxing up stuff to get out of the house whilst we market it, our agents offered free storage which we're taking advantage off. I'm now worried that we'll need to go through each box again and list every individual items for the shipping and ToR forms, is this the case or can we generalise. There's nothing of any real value so I would be be tempted to just say kitchen stuff, ornaments etc. So, do I need to do a proper itemised inventory?
  23. Well the day has arrived. Took the advice to trial pack it in reverse in our spare bedroom and be conservative with measurements. Hopefully all fits! Our large items include a king sized mattress and bed frame, a child's bed (no mattress), coffee table and a very large antique rug if this helps anyone thinking about 'what may fit'. Will add photos of our large game of Tetris plus any leanings if of interest.

    Should I ship my furniture to Australia

    What to Bring to Australia One of the questions we all ask ourselves is should we bring our furniture or not. Personally we didn't we sold everything and arrived in the country with 5 suitcases. Do I regret it, yes and no. Leave Everything Behind Pro You can sell your belongings and make some money for the move. Great excuse for a clean out You don't have the costs involved There is no waiting 12 weeks for your furniture to arrive No risk of items being damaged You can buy furniture to fit in to your new house You can start shopping immediately Cons We only tend to acknowledge our large items and forget all the small things It gets expensive buying all the little items like pans, bedding, towels, and coat hangers. You have to do numerous car boot sales Cost of buying new Bring everything with you Pro You have all your personal belongings around you You don't have to worry about buying new furniture It's cheaper in the long run Cons You have to wait around 12 weeks for items to arrive Cost Risk of loss or damage Items may not fit in to your new house You may not have enough furniture. Out of all the pros and cons the main issue we see coming up from members who ship is members waiting for their furniture to arrive. 12 weeks is a long time to go at either end without your belongings. Below are some ideas of how our members have managed. One month prior to your flight move in with relatives and send your good on their way. Once you arrive in Australia go in to a holiday rental while you start looking for a rental and then move in when your furniture arrives. Send your good the day before your flight once you arrive in Australia book a holiday rental until you have a rental sorted. Now with either of the above options you are going to be left without furniture at some point during the move. You could look at purchasing garden furniture to use as a dining table and sofa. A BBQ to cook on, and air mattresses to sleep on. You could also purchase, bedding, pots and pans from the charity shops to put you on. Hiring furniture is another option, however, it is an expensive one. Here is a price list for hiring furniture for a 2 bed property. Please also note they usually charge a delivery and take away fee on top that can be around $250. Two Bedroom Package The two bedroom pack can be tailored to accommodate a family of 4 or a couple. Select the bed combination you require and then add extra packs as required. Select the rental term and packs to display weekly rental price MAKE YOUR SELECTION AND CLICK SUBMIT Select Pack 2 Bedroom (4 Person) Package 1-2 Months 3 Months 6 Months 12 Months Furniture 1 x lounge suite; 1 x coffee table; 1 x dining setting; 1 x entertainment unit; 1 x queen bed ensemble; 2 x single bed ensemble or * 1 x queen bed ensemble; 3 x bedside tables; 3 x bedside lamps. 271.00 per week 171.00 per week 134.00 per week 113.00 per week Electrical 1 x fridge (300 - 350 ltr); 1 x microwave; 1 x washing machine (5 kg); 1 x LCD television (100 cm). 62.00 per week 46.00 per week 30.00 per week 24.00 per week Kitchen 1 x kitchen utensils; 1 x kitchen knives; 2 x crockery setting (20 pce); 2 x cutlery set (20 pce); 2 x drinking glasses (set of 4); 1 x wine glasses (set of 4): 1 x pot set (set of 5); 1 x mixing bowl (set of 3); 1 x chopping board; 1 x toaster; 1 x kettle; 1 x kitchen bin. 48.00 per week 26.00 per week 19.00 per week 14.00 per week Laundry 1 x steam iron; 1 x ironing board; 1 x laundry basket. 9.00 per week 7.00 per week 6.00 per week 5.00 per week Linen Bed 1 1 x quilt; 2 x quilt covers; 4 x pillows; 2 x sheet sets; 1 x valance. Bed 2 2 x quilt; 4 x quilt covers; 4 x pillows; 4 x sheet sets; 2 x valance. 86.00 per week 44.00 per week 31.00 per week 22.00 per week Towel 8 x bath towels; 4 x hand towels; 4 x bath mats. So the above would cost you approx $500 per week. They only do 4 weeks minimum so let's say we do it for 4 weeks that is $2,000 plus delivery and pickup approx $250 so to rent furniture for 4 weeks it would cost $2,250. So if you left everything behind let's do a rough price up of what it would cost to buy new. I will price up for a 2 bedroom, cheap package, obviously you can spend as much as you want but it will give you a rough guide. We will choose Fantastic Furniture for the package, now it isn't the best quality, we furnished one of our old rental properties with their furniture, the table bubbled because mats weren't used at meal times and some of the trim started to peel from the TV unit but it lasted 2 years and we may have got longer out of it but we sold up. The cheapest package is for 2 people and costs $999 It doesn't include a bed or the TV and lamp. To add a bedroom package on it would be an extra $179 without a mattress but includes bedside cabinet, bed and 3 drawer chest. A cheap foam mattress (double) can be added on for $98. Now if there are 4 of you then we may need to look at the other package, however this does include the bed and mattress (obviously not the TV). This is $1,999 Ok so we have now got the bulk of our furniture so we need to look at white goods. Now if you are buying a couple of items together please do not be afraid to ask for a discount. This is usually where my husband disappears in to thin air whilst I talk the sales man further down than what the item cost trade. He does get embarrassed but I once saved us $1,000 on a bulk purchase so don't be afraid to ask. Also check the prices of the same product elsewhere, there can be a huge difference and most stores will price match. I will price up on undiscounted costs but remember buy a couple of items together and knock them down. 'Now I had a look at Good Guys and the cheapest front loader they had was a 5kg one for $450. A fridge freezer was $399 but only small at 222litre. A 42" full HD TV non branded for $298 If you have time to spare then I would highly recommend Appliances Online especially for branded goods, just watch when it says free delivery as that doesn't include all areas. https://www.appliancesonline.com.au/ So for the main items we are looking at Small package for 2 people $2423 Family package $3423 but that would include a spare double bed and mattress. So as you can see it's nearly as cheap to buy items rather than rent furniture. Now you can also look at buying second hand using gumtree, Facebook, or second hand stores. In regards to accessories, pans, bedding (they call Manchester over here) plates, cutlery, microwave, kettle, toaster you can get them all cheap at Target https://www.target.com.au/ Kmart http://www.kmart.com.au/ Big W https://www.bigw.com.au/
