Happy new year, hope you all have a fantastic 2009.
A few questions on shipping....
firstly can any body recomend or warn us against good / bad shipping companies?
We will be looking to organise quotes in the next few months, how many companies should we get quotes from?
Also what goods to ship / leave....
We will be emigrating with 3 young boys so will want to settle asap and not wait 12-16 weeks for our container to arrive also the cost of renting fully furnished for 16weeks is a little expensive for us. It would be challenging to live in the UK for any number of weeks without furniture / toys etc but if needs be we could do this.
Our other option is to leave most of our furniture behind (sell) and just to replace when we arrive and find somewhere to rent, however I have reservations about this also as people have warned me that you cant help but spend when you arrive, cars, bills etc things you can not plan for.
I am greatful for any advice / views - especially those with young children, (mine will be 3years, 2years & 8months when we hope to make the move)
