Put house stuff eg.furniture,beds,lockers,tv,stereo,tools in storage for couple of years? Or just ship clothes hand tools,kids stuff?

my advice is to only ship personal stuff like kids stuff, hand tools and items like that. We moved here almost a year ago now and only brought approx 25 boxes of personal items and even at that we regret half of the boxes that were brought. if you are making the move with a view to long term why not sell your furniture, beds, lockers, etc . and buy when you get here. Thats just my advice but no doubt someone will come along and say the complete opposite. Good luck with your move.

Hi

We moved here 2.5 years ago, we sold everything and came with our suit cases - bought the most important in the suitcases - paid the extra for the weight on the plane and started afresh

It felt good to start from the begining - a little scarey at first, but delighted we did it that way now,

Hi,
We moved from Co. Wexford to Winnipeg last July and we shipped 30 boxes with RAS Group in Ballycoolin. We found them good and we had to supply our own boxes which kept the costs down. We were very happy when the stuff arrived, not one thing was broken or even dishevelled. Give them a call. ive recommended them on this forum already. Good luck with your move.
