    Hi all, we are moving over to Redcliffe in Jan,regarding shipping we found that after we priced up the initial cost,storage,quarantine etc... for our old tat !!!! that it was not worth it, we are just shipping boxes of important stuff...GOOD LUCK !!!

    Hi Like Slacky we decided to just bring personal stuff, hubbys tools etc. It worked well as we could buy stuff as soon as we secured a rental instead of living on air beds waiting for our container to arrive.

    Lots of familys do bring everything with them so i guess it boils down to how good your stuff is, if its like new it may be worth bringing it, just send it early enough so your not without here for months.

    If i could turn the clock back i think i would have also brought my tumble dryer (yes you need it in winter) and my fridge freezer.

    I suppose it depends on what you will need when you first arrive, as cal said if you dont mind sleeping on air beds for the first few weeks until your stuff arrives then its ok, Your electrical stuff will work here, you just need a few adapters.

    I would look around and decide what you have not used in the last 12 months or so, if you have not used it in Uk then you probably will not need it here. :biggrin:

    We brought pretty much everything with us! However, my husband's company were paying for shipping so there ws no reason not to. It really depends how attached you are to your current furniture and how old it is. If it is old and would be replaced in the next few years I would not bring it....but if it's new then probably I would!
