Hi Guy's 

Anyone out there that has returned to the u.k !! 

Did you take any electrical items home like T.V , fridge etc ??

Or is it best to sell everything & buy again in the u.k ???

I bought a tv and some small kitchen electrical things like a hand processor. I bought a multi plug extension board thingo so only changed one plug. Tv works with a set top box bought here.

If the stuff is good quality and quite new I’d bring it.

It depends on a lot of factors.

If you're going to ship a container, then you might as well ship everything you've got.  After all, if you try to sell stuff in Australia, you'll only get peanuts for it - so if you ship it and it gets broken en route, it's no great loss.

If you're not going to ship a container, then you're going to use a Movecube, and there's only so much that will fit - so then it's a case of prioritising what's most important to you.  

Electrical items will all work in the UK, you just have to change the plug or buy adapters.  I wouldn't ship a fridge because it's such a huge bulky item, and they don't like being transported anyway.
