So, you'll arrive end of June, early July? Be aware that there will be a two week school holiday from Monday 2 July to Friday 13 July.

As for Christchurch in June, July and August, brrrr...bring your woolies. Oh yeah, 'cos a lot of the older places still use outdated wood burners and 'cos Christchurch has these occasional inversion layers during winter, the city has the aroma of a campfire. But anyway, a rain usually comes along or a big wind and and the skies are scrubbed clean.

Welcome to Christchurch.

Hi Dawn, we are in a very similar situation yourselves but with perhaps 4 months to go. Good luck, hope it all goes well.

Hello Dawn! I'm very new here myself!

We're going through the same as you. I've only just started posting on this forum (been reading for a while).

I've had so much help already! Even though I'm new - I hope I can help you too!

Hi you newbies.
Get stuck into the posting. It's fun , helpful and its good to talk and know there are people out there same as yu.

We came to New Zealand three years ago this June, so I would echo about packing those thermals and woolies. Get yourselves a rental with a wood burner or a heat pump to keep the chill off & take advantage of the ski season down there. your kids will love it.

When it comes to shipping your stuff, bring everything you can with you. Everything ! All of It ! Stuff the container to the gunnlels and if you think there will be spare space, fill it with something useful to you.
