Starter Box

    Hi everyone :cute:

     

    Well we have finally got around to registering and posting our first thread although have been using the site quite a lot reading the posts which have been very helpful.

    We fly to Adelaide on the 21st Sept 09 after initially getting our Permanent residency visas back in April 2008, we did manage to validate our visa back in October 08 by going on holiday in Oz, but like a lot of people the delay has been down to the good old credit crunch, having to sell our house etc etc.

    Anyway the main reason for this post is to ask, apologies if already been raised, if anyone has sent over like a starter box before their container arrives, so they can at least have the basic stuff to start with, mainly thinking about bedding, basic kitchen stuff like cutlery, plates etc, as didnt particularly want to use our suitcases for anything but clothes and personal items.

    If you did who did you use, we were thinking about DHL, and how much did it cost?

     

    thanks in advance :v_SPIN: and not yet quite in panic mode but very close :wacko:

    Hi there,

     

    We were looking at the same sort of thing, and someone on here recommended http://www.sevenseasworldwide.com/. They seem a lot more reasonably priced than the usual couriers, and tons more flexible.

    Welcome to PIA :)

     

    We are in a similar situation, we are validating the visa's this October, but who knows when we will be able to finally move!

     

    Good luck with the move.

    Seven seas have been good for us. We had excess baggage on our reccie and our experience with them was first class and very well priced. Hope you enjoy it here. Steve

    What a bloomin good idea, wish we had thought of that.

     

    September time you won't need too much bedding, but yes you will need the other basic living gear.

     

    I guess the trick is clearing customs at exactly the right moment.

    Post me seperately regarding starter box. In the meantime to any one thinking about not bringing bedding in September, it can be extremely cold right up to the beginning of December, last year wasn't but it quite often is.
