    Tool prices

    :err: Hi everyone Can anyone tell me if tools are more expensive in Oz as a work colleague who has been there said tools cost a lot more even 2nd hand ones :shocked: :idea:So I was thinking about buying new in the UK and selling my old tools in Oz. I'm a carpenter so have lots of tools to take unless I sell them before I go.:confused: Passed my Vettasses and sent off for Visa in Sept 10,so guess I've got a while to make a decision. :unsure: thanks.

  4. I need to ship 2 tool boxes, some tools total weight might be about 30 kg. Some items very long, about 1.5 m, but thin rods, not heavy but long. I plan to move back in March 2011, and how much it can cost, and how long usually takes? I don't want to stay in the UK without tools.
