  2. Hi, we need recommendations for Adelaide removals please. It's being paid for by my husband's employer so we have to obtain 3 quotes. Grace removals are the preferred mover - we can just go with them without getting quotes. If we want a different one we have to get another 2 quotes. I have contacted Kent Removals and Allied Pickford for quotes. Any experience / reviews / thoughts locally on those please? I am interested in moves between suburbs in Adelaide not international to Adelaide (Kent unpacked our stuff from UK for us years ago) and not interstate moves because then obviously there will be other factors. Particularly, how have you found Grace if you have used them? Would love your thoughts please.
  3. Time to go home to England's green and pleasant land. Anyway here are our quotes for shipping home. We based this upon sole use 20' container, with all breakables packed by the removalists (BUT, toys, clothes, books etc packed by us) and part unpacked at destination (worktop unpack) with removal/disposal of all packing materials. However, we had "maybes" and "definites" - if leaving the maybes here meant a part-container we asked for that cost also. COMPANY A: Part container "not worth it", taking everything via sole use 20' = $8,858 COMPANY B: Part container would need to be 20' (???) = $10,370 (that's leaving the maybes) and if taking everything we'd need a 40' sole use container = $13,368 COMPANY C: Part container = $5,988, sole 20' = $6,995 COMPANY D: Part container "not worth it", sole 20' = $6,993 (once we'd told them what COMPANY C had quoted) Just thought I'd post this so other folk can see how quotes compare. So in essence, had we only got a price from COMPANY B and wanted to take everything, we'd be looking at $13,400 ish - by taking everything via COMPANY D it's costing us under $7,000. That's a difference of $6,400 As it happens we're going with COMPANY D as they're arranging a full clean of the house 'at cost' (circa $200) which they guarantee to be ok'd at the exit inspection - or they go back and sort it for free. Jus' saying.

    hi friends i am new on this forum please discuss with me about removals
  7. Hello there I just wanted to know if anybody out there has used JOHN MASON INTERNATIONAL MOVERS? I am in the process of choosing a removal company. If you haven't used them but you had a good or bad experience with other please let me know. We not taking furniture only taking personal belongings (books,cds,dvds,clothes,linen,kitchen stuff,etc), therefore we would do "part of a container load", using groupage. All comments welcome, Thanks.

    Renting a removal Van - Where ?

    To All, We are moving to Fulham Gardens in the beginning of June. Please could someone provide me with the following answers to these questions. What is the biggest and best removal van to hire on a normal SA driving licence? Where can I rent one one, which is in the western suburbs? How much are we talking to rent one for 24 hours. We probably be moving during the week, so probably be cheaper than a weekend rate Look forward to your replies and thanks

  10. We have booked Doree Bonner to come and pack our stuff on the Thursday 10th December 2009 they have quoted us £820.00 for a 142 Cubic Feet container. But only today we have had a phone call from Pickfords Removals, who has now quoted us £750 on a 145 Cubic Feet Container. So I telephoned Doree Bonner back and they mentioned to me that Pickfords are going through insolvency and chasing debts and that they are in finiancial difficulty and we should not go through them. So I telephoned Pickfords back and mentioned this to them and the representative said there is nothing to worry about and they had some difficulties in February 2009 but everything is ok now. What I am asking, has anyone got anything to say about this and has anyone used these most recently, is it worth going with Pickfords and saving us £70.00 or staying with Doree Bonner.
  11. We've just had a removals company round to price up our move to Adelaide and were told that the our king size beds are called double beds in Oz and the reason why people "complain" that bedding is so expensive is because they have UK double beds which aren't manufactured in Oz so all their bedding has to be imported, thus making them more pricey. Is this true, he seemed to know what he was talking about regarding other matters? If it is true we won't bother buying lots of nice new sheets before we move. He also told us we were right in not wanting to take our fridge freezer because it had a lower thermostat and less insulation so wouldn't cope with the heat, leaving us with a nice puddle of water on particularly hot days. Cheers Woody.
  12. Hello there, We now have everything in storage while we wait for our visa and I need to do the shipping insurance. Anybody had any experience of it? Have you made a claim before? Most of the time I feel that insurance is a waste of time as it never seems to cover what is really necessary. When filling in the insurance form it asks in detail the total contents by item. If I was to insure 100 cd's for example, but i owned 150, if 50 go missing could I claim for it or would they tell me that I still have 100 left that are fine? Because we already have the stuff in storage and we didn't count it we only have aproximate numbers. Any feedback would be welcome.
