Hello wonderful POI'ers!

I've secured a job near Mandurah and now need to my rent house out and move family in just 4 weeks time!! Need to organise and book everything I'm so gonna be posting lots over the next few weeks! Your help is appreciated as always.

 

Immediate issues are:-

1. One way flights around 29th Dec. + Extra baggage allowance.

2. Need a Short term rental for 2 adults & 1 child (How long do we book it for?)

3. Buying a car / Loan.

4. Shipping just the basics - 2 Sofas, Bed, Wardrobes, Table Chairs, TV & Coffee Table.

5. Long term rental.

 

Thank you sooo much!

1. Check out Singapore Air, they used to allow extra baggage (40 kg all together), plus the price is pretty good. I bought a one way ticket recently for 600 euros.

 

3. Check http://www.gumtree.com.au/, http://www.carsales.com.au/, http://www.drive.com.au/

By the way, are you sure you want a loan for a start? We bought an old wagon for 1100 AUD and it worked almost five years like a charm; still would, but we left Australia...

Check also this article about a car insurance:

4. Do you need to ship all these things? Considering you're not shipping a lot of things, you could actually buy them cheaper down under...

My friend just rented a house in Mandurah, 5 minutes away from the beach, for $230 per week; it's a 2- or 3-bedrooom house. And the beach house she was also looking at was $270 per week.

 

Hope it helps, good luck!!
