The family and I are moving to Melbourne in January. I need some advice on what tools I can take. I don't intend to take any garden tools but everything I have for the DIY I would like to take. How clean does it need to be?
Evveryone keeps talking about Jeyes? Does your stuff need to be thoroughly cleaned or what?
Seems a little bit OTT if you ask me. But I will gladly clean it to a shine if it means an easier time through customs.
Any advice appreciated.

Take whatever you have. Give everything a good wipe down. All that AQIS are looking for is grass seeds and dirt. I dont think they have a problem with oily tools etc. The only problem I had was a small amount of dirt on my mountain bike tyre, this was whisked away and cleaned by AQIS. I bought everything except the old lawn mower.

I'll take the lot then. No point in getting rid of stuff if I don't have to.
We are taking the kids bikes so I will now make sure the tyres are thoroughly cleaned.
Don't intend taking any gardening tools though.
