Hi Everyone!

So nice we are all on this survivor group now haha! Having a whirlwind few weeks at present. Just back from activating my visa in Aus, had an interview whilst over there and thought nothing of it but have been offered the job to start on 5th August - eek! We were planning on moving over in January 2020 but decided there isn't really anything stopping us heading back. 

I feel I can have a bit of a outpouring in this group as we are all going through the same thing, such a great help. I've got to get our house on the market, sort shipping and also sort the cat out (the thought of her scared in the hold of the plane before being in quarantine makes me feel sick to my stomach right now!). We also applied for my husband's british citizenship so need to look at rules surrounding how long he can be out of the country for whilst this is being processed as takes up to 6 months. Can't even think about saying bye to family right now...

Anyway vent over...

This thread is really helpful. We have a 2 bed house that has fitted wardrobes, so just need to ship over 2 beds, 2 sofas, a coffee table, 2 big lamps and all standard belongings. Can anyone advise if this sounds like something Move Cube could accommodate or would I need a 20ft container?

GUTTED to hear about the alcohol rule, we have some wedding wine and champagne plus a really special bottle of tawny port that we were saving for a special occasion!! Maybe I stick this in my checked in luggage?!

Lovely to hear everyone is progressing nicely, fingers crossed those of you waiting for  a house sale have some luck very soon 🙂

Hi @Jon the Hat

Fingers crossed our sale goes through this month. Top tip- we used an online agent but paid for our own property photographer- best £240 we've ever spent- the house looked amazing in the pictures.

Just a thought that hadn't ever occurred to me until I heard/ stole the idea off someone else!

We have great photos done by a pro also, and using a normal agent with negotiated fee.  Not sure whether worth it, but there has been a perfectly nice house on Purple Bricks for a year not far away...

Thanks @Katiebobbles, yes just as you overcome one type of stress another kicks in! We feel the move is pretty serendipitous now as we were about to put the house on the market and my cousin’s brother-in-law came for a look and wants to buy it as a private sale - don’t want to count our chickens just yet though...

Hadn’t even thought about setting out the cube space. From the dimensions it feels like it doesn’t give much room but I’ll deinitely give it a try! 🙂

We’re heading to Warrnambool, end of great ocean road. It is a lot different to Leeds but with Melbourne only 3 hours away, we’ll be able to get a big city fix when we want it. How about you?

Not had an offer yet, but we have a very keen buyer who needs to sell their place first.  Another viewing today - that is 3 in 5 days, vs 3 in the previous 5 weeks!  Looking up.

Anyone heard anything good or bad about The Moving Partnership? They’ve given a decent quote for a shared container (we’re in no rush as have a furnished unit owned by friends to move into) but always good to hear feedback. Will share on the other group as well..
