No worries...

We are taking everything that we want to keep after months of carboots, giveaways, throwaways, and abandonings !
As for packing, no you should not do any of your own packing. Leave it to the pros. If you have any original boxes for stuff like TVs & hi-fis then clearly do what you can to help them. They work hard.

Cost after insurance in the region of £4k.

No, this was a full capacity 20 footer, and we needed every inch.


Another tip, keep the tea and biscuits/cake coming.

Those pictures brought back some memories of 2 1/2 years ago, we used John Masons aswell!

Good luck with your move

looking at the 3rd photo, I can't see what is written on all of them, but are they ALL toys for the boys room?

It will be like Xmas all over again for them/him when they/he gets all those boxes

All the best

LOL......ermm, yes they are all toys for our 2 boys

..and if you look closely, one of my toys is up there too, my Korg Triton keyboard so I'll be front and centre too when it all pitches up in Sydney.

Thanks !

In that case I am glad we just have the one child whom has managed to limit the amount of toys accumulated in her first 10mths.

See you in Sydney (hopefully sometime from Feb)

Can I ask how much that cost? It looks like a container load to me (how much is that in cubic feet?).

Thanks
