I'm in dire need of some advice on this issue. We're due to come out at the start of June, we have some worked lined up but money will be tight for a little while due to all the initial outlay. We have a 5 week house sit arranged at first and then well be looking for a 2 or 3 bed place. What I'm really torn about is weather we should ship our stuff (which is a sofa, kitchen stuff, surf boards and personal effects) quote of 2 and a half grand, or rebuy? Were leaving our UK place furnished and renting out so leaving much furniture there. For the quote we've had I'm wondering if we should just start again and beg and borrow a little. I've heard emirates will let the baggage limit be increased if emigrating so wondered about packing as much as humanly possible that way. Any thoughts would be really, really appreciated.
