hi,we are debating to take our leather sofa with us which is getting a bit shabby,would it be better to replace it here or buy new when we arrive?are they expensive?thanks.
You get better deals in the uk unfortunately...we shipped our Leather sofa over, worth it!
thanks for that sarah.tracy.xx.
I seem to recall something on the removals forms about listing items bought within the 12 months before leaving UK, we were told this was to do paying some sort of tax on them. Sorry but I can't remember exactly what it was.
Off topic but Sarah,
I noticed you live extremely close to me so if you ever fancy a cuppa and a chin wag........
The leather sofas we have seen over here have been cheaper than the one we bought in UK. :o Saves room in the container for other stuff too ;)
A new one from the UK will have a strong leathery smell too so may gets picked up on for GST as our leather sofa was checked by AQIS. You may have to show it is over a year old to avoid paying any charges.
We bought ours with us as it was in nearly new condition:D
We have just ordered a couple of 3 seat leather sofas here.

Quality is good as well.
We have paid $1800 each for good quality Italian leather modern look sofas.
It did take some haggling to get that price but worth it :D
mmm I'd have to agree, they just don't seem to make them like they are in the U.K.
We were looking for a leather one to begin with but found the quality not up to much and a hefty price tag.
But, again, its down to personal choice. If you love your sofa so much bring it with you as you'll only regret it this side.
Agree 100% with you on this one Tyke. We paid the same amount but in pounds in the UK for each of our sofas. Good quality ones are definitely better value over here :o
