Can't explain how happy I am today, after our belongings were packed 15 weeks ago, today they have passed their quarantine inspection and have been told they will be with us next week.
I have one HAPPY 4 year old!! He has been saying he wants to go back to England , because he misses his Woody and Buzz and all his toys, I can safely say that next week it will feel like Christmas in our house!!!
I have had many furious battles with the company we chose to go with in the end ,****** (please pm for company's name)****, we thought they were good value for money, being told most shipments take 6-8 weeks, 12 at the absolute most, yeah right, it will be 16 weeks next week.. we found out that they stored our stuff in a warehouse for 4 weeks before sending it..
What we saved in shipping costs compared to the other quotes we got we have spent more moeny this end getting all of stuff we couldn't wait for.. we could have handled 5-9 weeks without it, but 16?? my poor 8 months old has been sleeping in a travel cot since we arrived on the 17th of June. He will feel he's in heaven when his cot arrives.
Well , looks like a Garage sale will be on the cards when everything is sorted, we have everything now, except the cot and toys that we can pretty much sell everything!! What a huge expense and a waste of time, but Im sitting here forgetting most of the stuff I packed and will be grateful I brought it all in the end.. just wished we brought our Super King Duvet
Good Luck with your shipments and I would NOT recommend ******(please pm for company's name) ****** to anyone ever!
