  1. Hi folks We are looking at buying a house over here in Oz. Today we looked at a lovely house that has numerous tall trees in the back garden and also backs onto bushland. My only concern is that up in these trees there are what appear to be nests, which the estate agent 'brushed off' saying they were just white ants and not a problem. On the way home from viewing the property my 11 year old daughter informed me that white ants are also called termites. As I am a Carpenter and I have seen the devastation that termites cause, I am concerned about these so-called white ants. Does anybody know if these white ants/termites in trees are a problem if in your back garden? As I am unsure whether or not to put an offer in on this property. Cheers The oldgit

    White & CO.

    Had lots of quotes for 20ft container used White and Co. They took everything this weekend and were great. Did not get their insurance though as I do not know how many jumpers I have, the listing was too detailed. Got grouped insurance less hassle and much cheaper. 2 weeks 5 days and counting YIPPPPPEEEEE!

  15. Hi, my first time here so any advice would be great.|I'm a white goods engineer, have been for 25 years, kitchen appliances, laundry, refrigeration etc, I've found several good looking jobs advertised that ask for an electrical licence. The info I've found is mainly about an electricians licence, I'm not an electrician. Is there a different licence that covers white goods? or do I need to be looking at some kind of an electricians qualification before I can work in my trade? Has anyone out there moved over and been able to keep working in the white goods or refrigeration area without too many problems? Any pointers in the right direction would be good, thanks
  16. Was wondering if we should buy a new washing machine and take it with or do most rental homes come with the white goods like here in good 'ol england? Washing machines seem a lot cheaper here in UK than in Oz.

    White goods?

    We fly in 4 weeks and I am trying not to get freaked out by the massive task ahead by ignoring it but I think the time has come to act- Renting- When we come over we are getting a service apartment off the company for 16 weeks and then we are planning to rent to start with. We are currently trying to sell our place here and are deciding what to leave and what to ship. What do you get generally when renting an unfurnished place, in terms of white goods? Would there be a washing machine, fridge, dish washer? We have been quoted to ship them but it would be silly to if they are not needed. Thanks x x
  19. Hi there, Wondering if anyone out there can help me? My family and I have just booked our one-way tickets to Oz. I am returning and my hubby and kids are migrating. Does anyone have any feedback for me on the above removal companies - good or bad? We are struggling to make a decision as there is very little information (reviews, etc) on White and Co and seemingly biased opinions (as well as greatly varying ones) on the other 2. Any help and feedback would be much appreciated. Many thanks, AKB
  20. What the hell were the 'leaders' at the time thinking when they employed a person who likes the odd tipple to white line their country. WTF happened between the border of Victoria and NSW. I realise that it must have been one hell of a job, but there is no excuse for the dereliction of duty shown when such an important job had to be done, hiccup, excuse me. Cheers Tony.:wink:

    Best place to buy white goods in Sydney

    We need to buy a new fridge, freezer, television, microwave and washing machine. Not familiar with the shops in Sydney so was wondering where is best to buy and are there any good sales during specific times of the year. Would buying online be best? Thank you,

    White goods rental - short term?

    We move into our rental on the 20th but our container is not due to arrive until early May. :eek: Anyone in Melbourne got any ideas where I can get short term white goods rental from, mainly a washing machine. The ones I've found all seem to be a minimum 6 months! Can't really rely on a launderette as there's 4 of us. Thanks..:biggrin:

    White Goods

    Hi All We had a removal company in yesterday and the chap said that we could not take our fridge freezer because it was over 15 years old and the same with our chest freezer. He said that the Aus authorities would not accept them in. Has anyone else come across this? Cheers
