Our shipping has arrived, it feels like Xmas. As we left in October we kind of forgot what we packed. So far everything arrived in perfect condition. We had 57 boxes and paid 165 dollars to customs. They only checked a few boxes. 2 with Bric-a-Brac (some treated wood items), the hoover (we had removed the rubbish bag from inside) and the golf clubs. The clothes need all to be washed, they smell funny and some have a bit of mold, but so far it has come out. What would I have done different, I would have bought more basic clothes at Primark (Target here is more expensive), should have brought the bed and the mattress. Foam Orthopedic mattresses here cost a fortune compared to the UK. We did part load, I reckon we used about a tenth of a 20ft container. It was about 2 meters that we used. If we had more stuff I would say that is worth it to pay for a full container and pack it to the brim. There was lots of stuff we threw away that we had to buy over here. Basic stuff for the house. We used John Mason.
