SHIP EVERYTHING!!! We used John mason filled a 20 foot container and cost including customs charges etc £4000. We added up everything to replace it would have probably been about £50 000, remember things like CDs, DVDs, bikes, pots and pans, Linen, towels etc all add up and before you know it the total cost of this stuff is a small fortune! We didn't bring washing machine or fridge and brought those here but everything else came!
Good Luck Heidi xx
