hi,

Normally we would ask for a photo and blade size so that we can check directly with our partner in New Zealand so we can evaluate if customs are likely to consider them weapons. Usually providing its clear they are props and not weapons this isn't a problem but we advise on a case by case basis to avoid any nasty surprises on arrival!

Hope that helps?

Hello
We are hoping to move from London UK to northern New Jersey with my husband's work. We want to get a rough guesstimate on how much it would be to ship a king size bed, bunk beds, cot, sofa, dining table, chairs, clothes, toys etc.. there are 5 of us (my kids are 2 months, 2 years and 5 years old) coming from a 4 bed house. Am I looking at 5K? less? a lot more? thanks!

Hi Marcjay, can't help with a shipping company, i sent mainly clothes and used USPS in the end.Do make sure you apply for a TRANSFER OF RESIDENCE CODE though, otherwise you will get charged customs duties!

Hello, hopefully we can help..

Re: Shipping companies... A great place to start for shipping is to check out FIDI website for a list of FAIM certified international removal companies that serve your area to make sure whoever you're using is fully qualified, licensed and independently vetted for overseas moving. Coming back to the UK you can either choose a UK or US company so you have good options available. There are lots more tips about choosing reputable removals companies and your different options in the other threads in this vendor forum for International Removals Advice.

Re: TV's, if they work and to what extent varies by model and manufacturer, so best to check your manual or the advice on their website or helpline. A few things to look out for are voltage (can it be used with a converter), standards (UK uses PAL and US NTSC), whether you will get a signal from aerial/freeview/sky connections and the inputs on the TV e.g. Scart to see if they all match up with any other equipment you'll need to connect.

Hope that helps?
