I'm moving over next year from the UK, but so excited starting to plan and sort things already! Has anyone taken their feather/down duvets and pillows? I thought I would take mine then read about possible hassles. Any advice would be much appreciated. Linda

I brought mine without any problems from the container journey - dampness, mould or rats nesting in the feathers.

Thanks - have to admit rats never entered my mind!!! I will be travelling solo and light, so will go the 'tea carton' door to door route, but will make sure anything feather/down is in a vacuum bag just in case there are mice anywhere en route! My worry was whether the customs people make any fuss about the feathers/down content and want to treat it on arrival.
