Many thanks for all who replied re what to take with me when we do eventually get there. We have made our minds up to take as much as possible. Unfortunately the kids beds are really not worth taken as they have grown so much in a year that they do need new beds. Does anyone know roughly what price single beds would be or if we can get them at a reasonable price of ebay. I will be taking duvet covers etc. Also do the storage companies give you a specific day to arrive to collect your goods and do we have them ready close to the front door or do they do all the work. I have paintings that I wish to take and wondered if i should wrap them. Any help would be appreciated. Ta.

|the packers will pack everything and I mean everything. If there is something you don't want them to pack make sure you keep a safe area so they know that if its in there they don't pack it. I had to get mine to unpack my passports which were left on the kitchen side. The will pack your pictures in special boxes so no need to do anything special with them. |

|The removalists are likely to make a better job of packing your stuff so let them do it ALL. Besides anything else you may not be able to claim for damages to stuff you packed.
Marshy's comment about moving stuff out the way if you don't want it packed made me laugh as we didn't. When we were eventually reunited with our goods and started unpacking we kept saying 'why on earth did we cart this round the world?'.
Our packing process happened at a whirlwind pace and we were a bit peeed off to find we'd had to leave an antique corner chair behind whereas we did manage to bring a box containing all the cr@p from under the sink!
