Just Waving Goodbye

    Just watching the last few boxes being loaded onto my container, before it heads off for Liverpool port !!

     

    We have used Pearsons for the removal, and so far they have been absolutely excellent - I am very impressed with their packing, and they have individually wrapped almost every single item by hand.

    They spent yesterday and this morning packing, and now , this afternoon putting it onto the container.

     

    They have had to really 'squeeze' everything from our 3 bed house into the 20ft container, so it was close to having to leave something behind !

     

    It leaves from Liverpool on 27th December, and is due to arrive in Adelaide on 24th February !!

     

    Hopefully see it then ??

     

    We fly out to Port Noarlunga on the 8th Jan with Singapore airlines.

     

    Exciting times

    It's a weird feeling isn't it - knowing that next time you see them will be in Oz! Our 20' was originally scheduled to arrive 18th Jan but date has now slipped to 29th which suits us better as hopefully won't need to store. We are just ahead of you - due to fly from Manchester 6th Jan..heading to Hallet Cove. We are spending Xmas on the Wirral.

    Have a fab Christmas in Blighty & have a great flight!

    Our furniture left our house in Runcorn on 26th September, left Liverpool dock on 2nd October, arrived in Port Adelaide on 28th November and we had it delivered to our house on 13th December!! All goes so quick and I didnt think I would be so excited to see all my stuff again! We living in Seaford Meadows now which is about 3 minutes from Port Nourlunga, maybe see you around!!

    Good luck with everything

    Hi all,

    thanks for the replies, and also great to hear that I have a few people in exactly the same boat .... pardon the pun :) !!!

     

    I typed the initial post a little bit too early ...... ended up having to leave 3 pieces of furniture, as we couldn't fit it all in the container !!.. If i had the time again, i would have prioritised the furniture, and considered the things that i really wasnt that fussed about, and asked those to be loaded last ?

     

    We are now at the father in laws house for the next 2 weeks until we leave for good. Plenty of leaving parties, and am becoming an emotional wreck with all of the goodbyes :(

     

    See you all there soon.

    Just to update.

     

    Just been sent the container number from the shipping company to trace it's journey........ our container has been in Rotterdam Holland since new years eve, and is leaving there today. It doesn't state where it is going next though ??? ....

     

    I have no idea what sort of route these ships take ? ... any ideas anyone ??

     

    Oh yeah, and we leave in 3 days !!!!

     

    Cheers

    I'm not sure which route. The most logical to me is via the Suez canal then Indian ocean. There is the old clipper route round Africa and past Cape Horn. I've no idea which the cargo ships may take though.

     

    If you are able to track your shipping I am sure you'll see soon enough which way it is heading :)

    Stop worrying about it, I never checked ours once. Seriously you'll have better things to do when you arrive like sorting everything else out. Keep some money aside for storage and potential issues. We had to keep our container in storage after the 10 or 12 days it took to clear through AQIS. 3 weeks cost us something like 500 or 2.5 weeks did.
