Also take the shipping times with a pinch of salt . We got told 8 weeks for a 20 ft and it took 3 months . Once they had our money they didnt seem to care either.......
Tv's and laptops quite a good price here , furniture expensive !
Hi we have got a really good quote from doree bonner. but before hand we got the kids to sort there toys out (charity shop did really well). We also thought about anything we would have to buy within the time it will take for our stuff to arrive in adelaide eg: beds, white goods. I have found it a good time to have a good clear out and get rid of any junk.

OK let me break this down a but further -
We are going to take electricals such as TVs, computer, dvd player, xbox ect.
We are also taking all of the little bits like kitchen stuffs, DVDs, and a couple of boxes of toys, personals ect and 2x kids bikes but we should be able to get this all over for under £1000 in crates and boxes.
We will fly on a perminent visa which we is unused so can get 40kls luggage per person and hand luggage so this will cover clothes, some toys, and essential personals.
I cannot take the oven, dishwasher, fridge or freezer as they are built in so will have to get new and will do that when i get there.
Am leaving the washing machine and tumble dryer behind as they are ancient anyway and require replacing. also having a good clear out before we go anyway.
Going on a average cost of £3k for a container this leaves me £2k or $3k dollars to but a new sofa, a king bed, and 2 single beds, and a kitchen table.
Sees reasonable from the prices ive seen.
I cannot take the white goods into account as i have tobuy new anyway.
Anyone else done it this way and has it worked out financially ?

Think they are trying to rip you off with saying you need a 40ft container, we have been told from the shiping company that a 20ft would do fine for furniture & tools and a 40ft if we decide to take the car (which is a large estate).
Make sure your Xbox will work out here.
I do not know but are they not regioned so the games will have to come from the same region?
Might be a good thing if they are cheaper in the UK.
Just a thought.

The great majority of Xbox games are not regionned, so won't be a problem. There is sometimes an issue with live memberships being registered in one country and credit cards from another country being used to buy points, but this can be sorted fairly easily.

Just reading through all the threads..... realising there are a few CHANCERS out there/Shipping companies.... I bet if we moved all our furniture into another house the quote would be for a 20ft container!!!!!!
