Re: Moving to Palmy

Quick update...it's on, we're moving to Palmy.

Re: Moving to Palmy

Thank you!
Yes, it hasn't been easy finding dog friendly rentals in Auckland, so we know we're in for a challenge. That's the hardest bit of moving, hoping the timings all work out and we don't end...

Re: haggling on rent...?

We're currently in our third rental since moving here with our two dogs.
It's definitely worth asking if there's any negotiation even if a property says no pets. Some landlords are concerned that...

Re: Bringing my dog to NZ. .....?

Can recommend Golden Arrow, they were fabulous with our two boys.
Agree with costs given, but they're part of the family and were always going to come with us.

Two years?!

Just having a quick look at the site after a prolonged period of absence, and thought I'd post my two year update.

We arrived 8mths ago with our two terriers, we wouldn't have come without them. It cost a fortune, more than the cost of bringing ourselves over, but worth every cent. I have erased the exact cost...

Do you have to pay import duty on M&S deliveries and if so is it expensive?

Re: Finding a job in retail

Thank you, that helps. I think part of the issue is that he did set himself an unrealistic goal in terms of how it would take to find something. It's just hard to keep motivated sometimes.
