Hi All We have had three removal companies to quote, we are only taking 1/2 container and have been advised by all three that the time door to door is approx 8-12 weeks. Having said this we have been told that as we do not have our own container and depending on when our goods sail we could in actual fact have them in Perth as quick as 7-8 weeks after they leave our house. Has this actually happend to anyone or is it just a sales pitch. Thanks Ruth

Hi Ruth remember me ? I have a note in my diary to let you know how PSS were once we received our possessions at this end. Well we have, last week, and I rate PSS as EXCELLENT. We, too, were quoted 8 - 12 weeks, but once we booked them, they came back with a sailing time of just 4 weeks. Customs clearance took 4 days, with no charges etc, and Kent, their agent this end, stored our stuff FOC for over two weeks. They did the unpacking too, and were fabulous. Just two small pictures damaged slightly (Glass frames). So from leaving the UK , we were all settled in our house 7 weeks to the day. It could have been two weeks sooner but we had to wait for the house. Hope your move goes well. bfn, Andrea

Hi Andrea, how could I forget you and with all the help and info you have so kindly given. I am so pleased that everything is working out for you and that your removal experience was a good one, it must be amazing being finally settled into your new home, all our very best wishes to you all. Which suburb are you in, sorry, I think you have said before but I am a bit dizzy at times, was the whole of process of relocating pretty much as you though it would be? We have had three quotes so far and they all seem much of a muchness and all say that they are the best, it's really difficult to know who to go for, what decided you to go with PSS? Thanks ttfn Ruth

Hi Ruth We have bought a house in Bibra Lake (left side, known as St Paul's estate. It's lovely, and there are lots of park/picnic areas around the lake. It's SOR, and just 7 mins to Coogee beach, which has just been granted planning permission to develop a marina, they say a bit like Hillary's. We went with PSS because of price, and we had no way of knowing who was really the best, so we just chose them.No regrets there at all. It's so good to be back online in our own house ! Hope it goes well. bfn, Andrea

Hi we didn't bother claiming on insurance. The frames weren't worth it at all. But we didn't have PSS insurance either, we shopped around for the best deal. bfn, Andrea

Who did you use for insurance? We have so far only found one insurance broker - Letton percival and their documention is very unclear as to what is and isn't covered which leaves me feeling uneasy as insurance is important. I'd like to find some other companies/ brokers so if you can or anyone else can name any that would be really useful. Claire
