We don't have anywhere near the amount of large furniture items you have so why the hell did they estimate so much?

This is our list:

King size bed
3 sets bedroom drawers
3pce suite & footstool
small nest of tables
bureau
Large TV
DVD
Video
3 Large mirrors
dining table and 6 chairs
tv cabinet
portable tv
3 bedside cabinets
sora bed
computer table and chairs
Computer/printer/monitor
washing machine
small tumble dryer
dishwasher
hall table
1 adult bike
1 childrens bike
pots
ovenware
toys/games
clothes
Linen/towels
Garden table/4 chairs & parasol
2 large tool chests
CDs/DVDs
Lots of books
Elliptical trainer (unused )
welder/compressor

Does anyone think this is excessive?
Not at all, but it does make me think we are definitely in no need of a sole use of 20ft container unless I pop out later and buy new sofa and extra furniture.

I think we will probably end up with sharing a container as we don't have all that much stuff. Not sure if that will be a hassle though. We are not going till next year so have a while to think about it. There are only 2 of us and we live in a two bedroom flat so we don't have huge amounts of things to take.
