      Shipping Company & Insurance Advise


      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.

      Contacts are:

      Pickfords Lancashire - Emma Watson - 01772 285 580
      Letton Percival Liverpool - Ian Harrison - 0151 236 4568

      We too are very impressed with Pickfords and intend to use them when we sell. Sme friends of ours used to move to Perth and some others to Auckland...good on both counts.

      We to used Pickfords and Letton percival. Cannot fault them. We did have some damage to a Sofa on arrival in Adelaide, but we put in a claim and it was all sorted. Would highly recommend them.
