You don't need to use the big ones......

    We used a local shipping company in Romford which were Copsey to move us to Adelaide, and whilst they were packing our house they were brilliant. Everything went very well, and we were kept informed about the ship once we landed in Adelaide and made contact with the Oz side, which were Kent Removal's.

     

    And today was the BIG day we had our container delivered, we had quiet a few boxes opened by customs, but at the moment all is very well. The guy's arrived just after lunch and just over an hour later, our container was empty and the garage was full, with all 121 boxes, plus other packages, so got lots of sorting to do now.

     

    But we all have a proper bed to sleep in tonight...... and I can't wait :SLEEP::SLEEP:

    oh, and within ten minutes i was using the hoover...... :D

    i used copseys as well and found them very good...i also had quite a few boxes opened by customs (thank god they never found my bottles of vodka hidden) and also nothing was damaged as everything was wrapped up really really well....one thing i can say is when everything does arrive its like christmas all over again you forget what you have brought, my unpacking was a nightmare 252 boxes :swoon:

    Not always true! My parents used a local firm and their stuff took over 5 months to get to them!!! This is because the smaller companies don't always have the business to have a speedy turnaround. It might be different if you are using a whole container, but if you are using a shared one then they need to have others to fill it up. Otherwise it just sits in their depo for months

    Hi Sue, once you are unpacked they come back and take away all the rubbish and boxes, if you don't want them.

    But there will be boxes that we will not unpack in this house.

     

    Good luck for Wednesday.

    youd have that situation with any company though if your sharing a container. We used john masons and thought they were excellent.
