We both had to write separate statements explaining our relationship status, how we met, common interests, future plans.
We also had a joint mortgage for our flat and joint accounts so we also attached certified copies of these.
Hopes this helps and good luck with your visas.
We are using the same shipping firm as you. Our insurance is new for old with £100 excess. We have to pay 2.8% of value of sum insured as a premium. This is thru Brittania (Sun Alliance) Marine Transit Insurance. We have to pay the premium in addition to the shipping costs. We spent most of yesterday afternoon doing the inventory and costings. Are you sure you have been given all the insurance paperwork or is it different because you were allocated a company as part of a package?
Luggage allowance varies depending on who you fly with. If you fly via The States you get more allowance. We looked into allowances and found only permanent visa holders were eligible generally unless you went via USA. We are moving back permanently but as my 2 kids and I hold Aussie passports (so no visa) we didn't get any extra allowance only my husband on a British passport did. He got 40kg with SIA, double the usual allowance. We had to fax a copy of his visa before we paid for the ticket.
Hope this is of help.

Shouldn't really complain however as it is one less thing to worry about.
