New to this, so please bear with me. We are in the early stages of our move to Adelaide. My wife (a nurse) has a job offer with the health authority over there, and I am a Primary school teacher who will be looking for work there when we have settled. IELTS is booked for next weekend, and reams of paperwork has already been completed.
We were initially going to sell everything before we left the UK, but after reading of peoples experiences on here, we have now decided to get a 20' container and ship as much as we can with us.
Amongst a million other questions, I thought I would take this opportunity to ask one that is currently buzzing around in my head. We are thinking of shipping our washing machine, tumble dryer, dish washer, fridge, freezer, microwave etc in the 20' container. Besides needing a different plug for the electricity, is this a good idea, or are we better to buy new ones when we arrive there next year. They are all of a good quality. I thought I had read somewhere that the gases in fridges/freezers caused a problem with Aussie customs, but I may of dreamt this.
Any feedback would be greatly received.
