An update of our progress since arrival in Adelaide!
Our furniture arrived in port on the 2nd August, from leaving our door in the UK on the 12th June.
We went with a firm who had a local office to us, so communication was always brilliant that side. (company name begins with the name of the scatty fish in finding nemo)!!
The guys were great on packing days, considering we had BIGGER issues to worry about on the day. (but I wont go into that!)
Once it had shipped in, the company this side (first name of Rainer III wife), were excellent! They updated us with a date for quarantine, when quarantine was cleared and gave us a date immediately for delivery. Yesterday, they then gave us a time.
The two guys who delivered it were just as brilliant as the ones in the UK. Really thorough, sorted out all the boxes in no time into the correct rooms. Unpacking most bits for us, and then offering to pick up our empty boxes for free.
For a move this big, and to only get a broken picture frame was just perfect. Thank you to the two companies above! If I am allowed to mention them, I will in another post?????
The house doesn't echo now, and its knowhere near as cold as it was! Now we feel like we can settle down in our new home .
1 out of 4 of us are in jobs, but we are all being patient! We all have interested companies though, so hopefully within the next two weeks, it'll be 4 out of 4!
Adelaide is just stunning, even in the middle of winter! Doesn't that say something!
Bring on the summer I say!!
