Hello all, can any one help me with a problem! After looking at rental accomodation in perth, i have noticed that a lot of the homes have built in robes in the bedrooms. My problem is the wardrobes and chest of drawers that we have for all of us (family of 4) are all pretty new, do we take them with us or sell before we leave. Has anyone had problems storing wardrobes in houses with built in robes???? Any info supplied will be most appreciated folks. love Madi xx

Hi Madi, we came to perth from england 2 yrs ago and brought a 40 ft container with all our futniture, including bedroom wardrobes etc. Like you, ours were relativly new and cost alot of money. You'll find you will get next to nothing for them if you sell your furniture, and then you've to re buy here. Double cost really. I recommend bringing them. Regards Sue

Not if you live in a house with built-in robes, as most local houses appear to have. Everything else - I agree with you. But not the wardrobes.

I'm sorry but i disagree, most wardrobes are the size of a standard door, some are two door widths, not enough room for most clothes. Or am i the exception to every one else and have too many hanging clothes? I don't think so. Even my son has a run of wardrobes that are about 6ft long + his built in one. The other thing is our's were all matching suites. Our bedroom suite are 'Stag' and cost new 1.000 pound a piece. I wouldn't have got 200 pounds second hand in England, and the are beutiful pieces of furniture, although I agree with you if you have 50 pound MFI stuff.
