have just been on the John Mason website which has a great wee quote thing which lets you list what you want to take and copmares shipping costs with replacement. we are only really wanting to ship a small amount - several pictures and mainly the kids toys, Play station and games etc (inlcuidng a Bratz bus!). Has anyone used this company for a small amount? Does anyone have any info re who to use for a small amount? I have read through the previous posts regarding this but there dont seem to be many who are taking as little as us - probably only a couple of cartons, more to please the kids than anything else. any advice appreciated greatly!

Now then, for kids toys, unless they are really big, you could alternatively fly to australia with BA/qantas or singapore, then you will be eligible for double baggage allowance. only useable on first entry to australia with visa. janine

Yes, they'll deliver to our new address in Perth and unpack everything again. The packers worked really hard, I kept popping out for things, and they were working when I left and when I got back and worked from 8am to past 5am the first day as the container was being delivered to the house at 3pm on day 2.
