Hi Aussiemovers, Haven't been on for a few days as we've had the removal guys in, but heavens you lot have been busy as usual! Just thought we'd post our experience so far - we are using Anglo Pacific & the team that packed up our house were excellent last Thurs/Fri. A great start & fingers crossed that it continues. We are using a company called A.Letton & Percival for our marine insurance. They charge 1.53% with IPT & 5%. Storage can be covered & 0.2% per month. We will probably keep logging in to Aussiemove until we fly on Monday but to everyone moving soon 'Good luck & hope to meet you on the other side' & to everyone on the visa application ladder 'Chin up' & hope you hear good news soon. Best wishes, Karen & Iain x

Hi Karen, how exciting, it's nice to hear things going to plan for a change. Did Anglo Pacific recommend A Letton & Percival for insurance, if not did they try to persuade you to take out theirs and if so were they stroppy when you said you were going elsewhere? You said they charge 1.53% with IPT,could you explain what you mean by &5%, if you don't mind, sorry to be a bit dim. Thanks very much Ruth

Hello Karen ans Ian Thanks for your posting as we are using Anglo Pacific as well and it is good that the packing was excellent. You will have to keep us posted when you arrive in oz of the service you recieve. We don't actually fly out until the 19th September. You must be so excited at the moment with only a few days to go. Good luck with the move and sorting yourselves out in Oz. All the best Charis and John

Hi Ruth, Anglo Pacific have been very professional up to now & made no demands re insurance only recommending that we have cover. The insurance works out as 1.53% of the valuation of your goods. The IPT (Insurance premium tax) is a govt charge & is 5% of your premium. Example your goods are worth
