    Which Suitcase is best?

    Hey, Bit of a silly dilemma, but can anyone recommend a good suitcase brand/place to buy a suitcase? We have a 30kg allowance and I want one thats strong and will last but not too pricey. Thanks in advance Terri
  2. Hi All, I'm moving back to the UK in June and need some advise on shipping. I don't really have much to take back with me as I've sold it, but I have a few items likes pictures, clothes, CD's, DVD's etc that I want to take back with me, but my suitcase will be to full. I think I'll only need 2 boxes, but just wondered if anyone knew of a site where you just make a one off payment, fill the box and ship without having to worry about measurements etc. I've seen sites from UK to OZ, but not the otherway.:arghh: Any information would be greatful.... Thankyou :ssign5:
  3. We are moving out in April and are getting most of our items shipped. We will be renting furnished until container arrives. Is there anything that you wished you put in your suitcase rather than having to wait for it. It's hard trying to think what we will REALLY need to begin with. We have 2 young boys (8 and 4) and will obviously need to pack some toys and things for them. :rolleyes:
  4. Good morning/evening As i'd already started buying christmas presants for the kids and we'll be over in a few weeks, i'll need to bring them in a suitcase, unwrapped so curtoms can see, should i keep the receipts to show them will i be charged taxes? The container wont be there in time for christmas and they are only toys eg hm armed forces and barbie, disney princess dolls! I'll do the remainder of my shopping once we've arrived, i want to make christmas very special with moving as my little girl is convinced it wont be christmas as they'll be no snow or chimney for santa :wink: thanks, Lisa x

    Tales from a Suitcase

    http://www.sbs.com.au/contentsales/programs/view/id/442/t/tales%20from%20a%20suitcase/ has anyone read this book..? was mentioned in out local paper that its about Asylum seekers ect and there stories regarding entry into Australia ....sound an interesting and educating read .....
  6. Hi all. I was wondering if anyone has had any experiance with posting a suitcase internally? We are based in Nelson Bay now and I have been offered a 457 visa in Dalby:jiggy:, (About 3 hours inland from Brisbane) We have decided that we are going to do the 11 hour drive there, but the problem is we have accumilated a lot of stuff from our 2 months here, and its not all going to fit in the car. (We never planned on moving far from Newcastle you see) So our thoughts was to fill one of our cases with stuff we dont need and post it out and it should arrive shortly after. Any thoughts guys?
  7. Hey folks, Has anybody shipped a suitcase of stuff back to the UK from OZ? My girlfriend and me are returning to the UK in Jan after being here a year but have acquired rather a lot of stuff that we want to take back. We are flying Singapore Airlines so only have 20kg each plus hand luggage. We thought about filling a suitcase up and sending with the likes of DHL etc before we leave. I've had a quick look around but can't find anywhere saying a suitcase specifically and was wondering if people have sent stuff in one then just put a padlock on it and had DHL pick it up, just giving them the dimensions and sending it as a package?? And how much roughly did it cost for say a 20kg case? Any help gladly received, cheers.
  8. Hey all, I don't have many things I need to ship over, just clothes. So I wondered if anyone knew of a company that ship just suitcases? I've had a look around and it seems most provide huge containers, which is just not required by us. Flying with Thai Airways so have asked them for extra allowance, but don't think it will happen. Any advice?

    Help my suitcase is too small!!

    Hi Everyone Going through what seems like endless piles of clothes and wondered if anyone had any adivce as to what to leave and what to take to Perth, read conflicting replies about clothing (leave everything/take everything) but I'm damn sure all of this stuff will not fit in my suitcase and I'll have to leave somethin behind, ha ha! Should I ditch the winter coats, ugg boots and woolly jumpers for more vest tops and shorts? Any suggestions welcome! :jiggy:
  10. Hi, it wont be long before we are packing our stuff for shipping. Can anyone tell me what essentials are good to take in your suitcase to be going on with while you wait for your container. I thought of packing toys for little one,few kitchen utencils, iron. Anyone else got any ideas, things you wished you had packed in your case but didn't? :wacko:
  11. Has anyone any thoughts on where I should pack my wedding photos and other sentimental value stuff? As we only have 20kg baggage allowance I'm conscious of the fact that we won't have a lot of space in the cases? Sorting out some clothes and things to pack today...you don't realise just how much you have till it's all there laid out in front of you! Just hope I can fit it all in now!

    how much in each suitcase?

    Hi guys Has anyone flown recently with Singapore airlines - how much is the max allowed in each case? I though it had to be under 32kg we have 4 cases packed all with 30kg in them. (3 of us travelling) I have just read that each case cannot be over 23KG - please tell me that is not true - we leave in 2 days - ARRG thank you
  13. Last time I went to Australia I took two bottles of wine in the suitcase, however that was 2005 and I was wondering if anyone knows whether I will be able to do the same thing this time, when we fly out next week:unsure:
  14. Has anybody ever vacuum packed their clothes in their suitcases. We have decided to travel light and just take our suitcases for now, but the problem I've got is that I've been suffering from 'panic buying syndrome'!!. :shocked: Any advice anybody....?? I thought that I could vac pack most of the stuff and leave some items out so that I'm not wearing stinky clothes until I find a vacuum!! Thanks Debs x
