    Hello everybody,

    Have`nt posted for a while but we have finally got our visa and now the fun really starts.We are after some opinions(good or bad) about money transfers and shipping companies.

    Anglo Pacific and Pickfords are the two shipping firms we narrowed it down to.On the money side we know Anglo have connections with HIFX and Westpac bank and that does seem the most convenient option.Any ideas?

    Hiya,

    we're using pss and either Hfix or moneycorp. PSS came in with a reasonable quote, decent advice, and a no-nonsence approach to moving to Oz!

    Moneycorp gave us a decent exchange rate, and time to pay.......and even allowed us time to change our mind. Hfix were friendly and actually didn't try to fob the OH off with the malarky about exchange rates etc..... he's in finance, and they respected it, can't argue with common sence, pet!

     

    Good luck with it all

    Hi

    Can't say for definate as we are still this side although John Masons seem to be recommended all the time on this site. Try the shipping and household section, there are loads of threads about which company to use.

    You can go on John Masons website and get a pretty realistic quote by going through their 'reality house' We are pretty set on using them and the price looks reasonable compared to others.

    :)From the bank point of view out here there all pretty much by the by, westpac made opening an account from the uk very easy just make sure when you do the transfer you put it in to a higher interest account. But when you arrive its then easy to open another account if you find a better one from another bank.
