    What about Brickies tools? I'm confused as to what we have to do about stuff my OH will need before the container gets to us. Hopefully he will be working well before then.

    thanks carl have just had all our stuff boxed up and sent by pss i decided to take most of my hand tools and all of my cordless equipment but they have to be very very clean it took me weeks to clean them all up but now they look like new so at least it will look proffessional over there for a few weeks i was also told not to take my 110v stuff just before my tools were shipped so i was glad someone let me know so be sure of what tools you really want to take, when do you arrive we fly out there on the 21st feb so not long now

     

    good luck

    Hi Carl we used pss removals to ship our items we had about half a container approx (417 cubic feet) they are an excellent company they are very helpful and they are more than happy to answer all you questions we did get other quotes for shipping but they were not as helpful as pss (eg pickfords,brittania and webbs).

     

    If you are going to share a container with someone else then it will take longer to arrive as they will not send it until they fill the rest of the container approx 8 to 12 weeks all in all.

     

    hope this helps.

     

    ash.
