    I was wondering if you don't get a container what else can you do to get stuff like clothes, xbox 360's, xbox games, dvds and toys that they just can't do without?

     

    We intended not taking anything with us but having thought about it a bit more we cant fit everything in suitcases but a container would be far too big :err:

     

    Maybe a box the size of a washing machine to put it all in how would we get that there?

    Hiya,

    we shipped 24 boxes with gb liners for £555 + their insurance @ 4 %

    all kids toys, loads of teddies, some clothes, books, dvds, ornaments, photos, pictures etc...

    so far cant recommend gb liners enough, theyve been very good.

    hi kat - that sounds really reasonable, could you please pm me the details for gb liners - we're probably only taking the same amount as you, so that sounds ideal for us

    thanks :idea:

    dont know about stress free but we phoned a company up today in huyton liverpool called kenlan trading, and what they do is drop a 20ft container outside your house on the wagon, then they give you 3 hours to load it up with as much as possible for £2000 :D

    that sounds great to us as we are taking as much as we can.

     

    anyone done it this way:confused:

     

    thanks suexxx

    sue hold fire! i said hold fire, £2000 for a container put outside your house for just 3 hours to fill up as much as poss i wouldn't use them:realmad: what about making sure everything is wrapped up correctly is this company not some blokes from the pub that will take your stuff and run!!!!....... i dont know what size home you have but my house is a 2 bed home and it will take 2 days to empty and thats everything wrapped up

    I'm liking the sound of these cheaper options for shipping stuff, theres no way we could fill a crate but still have quite a bit of stuff to shift.

    Do gb liners have a web site?

    Me again, I'd missed a load of replies before my message. Does anyone know if Allied Pickfords have a website, I'm just being lazy not finding out myself.

    I don't like the sound of the skip outside my front door for 3hours!!!! SCARY, I too would want to see it all packed properly by someone else.

    Whites took 2 days to pack our belongings and the container arrived on the 3rd day - they had 3hrs to pack it - is this what your company meant?
