Hi Guys Can someone please advise me I am looking to move out to Perth next year and I am starting to declutter all of chattels and wears. Because it is very expensive to ship alot of your goods across is it worth bringing the bare neccesities or try and ship as much as possible please? I don't want to have to ship everything out there if it is not necessary? Many thanks Debs

bring absolutely everything plus more! works out cheaper than buying replacements here.

Couldnt agree more with Sunqueen. Things are expensive here and mostly made in China ... Fill up your box and ship it over!

Things are mostly made in China in the British shops, too.

Absolutely, I checked labels of stuff when we were home recently. In addition to China you can find India, Turkey, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Tunisia, Morocco on the labels. Nothing I found in the shops was made in the UK.

I had a chuckle here when somebody told me that everything here, except our children were made in China!

Take what you would for a move to the next street it is the best thing you can do!! we shipped everything including insurance for 2500 and would of cost me a lot more to replace out here!! i even packed dishcloths and sanitary wear just filled gaps in boxes where we could!!
