Default Shipping times-How long did yours take?

Hi All
Just a snap poll on how long on average it took to move your 'world' from the UK to Australia?

We are heading to Perth and times are anything from 10-16 weeks so we are trying to figure out when to send it all out

Thanks Pomerz

3 months and 1 week door to door (though we received our air freight much earlier; about 3 weeks, I think). A very good experience with Allied Pickfords.

We were quoted 8-13 weeks. Our stuff was collected on the 8th July & is due to arrive in Fremantle on 9th October plus then it's got to clear customs. So that's 13 weeks to get to Oz plus however long customs clearance takes.

We shipped our stuff as early as we possibly could so we didn't have to wait too long for it here but as we're in a shared container we had to wait for that to be full before it could head for the docks. Then of course you have to wait for the container ship to be full before it can set sail.

I am soooo desperate to have our stuff back. We're rattling around in a large very empty house.

We sent our stuff a month before we left. Found our house and settled a month after we arrived, had the container delivered the same day.
