We have just said goodbye to all our belongings as we move out to Adelaide in August.
I would just like to mention who we used for the shipping, we used Pickfords and they were fantastic, I did have 4 quotes (Anglo Pacific, John Mason, Whites & Co and Pickfords) Pickfords came in the middle. Main reason we decided to use them was because they have a Pickfords in Australia. They sent 3 very polite lads and it took just over 2 days, couldn't have gone better.
We have filled a 20ft container, cost just over 4k excluding insurance. Our things were valued at approx 55k and Pickfords wanted £1800 to insure so we didn't use them!! we used a company called Letton Percival based in Liverpool and for better cover than Pickfords it cost just over £600 !! so my advise is don't use a removal firm for insurance, go to a marine insurance specialist.
