If the ones you've got are halfway decent, bring them.  They are expensive here. 

I've found these guys to be the cheapest if you need to buy them:

https://www.appliancesonline.com.au

Otherwise try https://www.thegoodguys.com.au or https://www.jbhifi.com.au/home-appliances/

I know shipping stuff seems awfully expensive but in general, it will cost you a lot more to re-equip your home here when you arrive - plus it takes a ridiculous amount of time when you don't have time to spare.

Ah, I wasn't aware they'd been taken over.  I'd go with Appliances Online myself. They're a family-run company based in Sydney (I used to live round the corner from their shop) but they have an Australia-wide network and deliver free.

Their service is wonderful.  The first time I used them, I ordered a tumble dryer for my flat which was on the fourth floor (no lift).  The driver called me half an hour before to check I'd be home and ask about parking.   Two guys carried the tumble drier up to the flat without a word of complaint AND THEN OFFERED TO HANG IT ON THE WALL FOR ME!   They then took away the old dryer, whistling cheerfully as they carried it down those stairs again. 

I've ordered a couple of things from them since and all their other staff seem to be similarly cheery.

Costco and Aldi both in SA. Any UK membership can be used if you have one. Membership isn’t restricted in Australia anyone can join. Less choice but the guarantees are good. You will need to transport yourself though. Aldi here too. 

 


So many wineries ......so little time :yes:
