  1. House Insurance recommendations

    We are in the process of buying a property. Can anyone recommend a good house insurance company...is there a website like the UK money supermarket or compare the market?
  2. We are moving to Perth at the end of August & are looking for a short term, furnished let, probably 2 or 3 months, in the Duncraig High School catchment. So Hillarys, Duncraig, Sorrento or Padburys. We are a family of 4. Any recommendations please?
  3. Moving dog from UK to Perth

    Thank you Ktee. I've looked at Dogmovers & can only see that they do land transit on the east coast. Trigg weighs 27kg so maybe one of us flying over is an option although to be honest as we will have just moved across the world I'm inclined to just suck up paying the £780!!! I have asked a company called Ozpet for a quote too.
  4. Dog transportation

    How did people get their pets from Melbourne to Perth? did you use PetAir for this too?
  5. Moving dog from UK to Perth

    It is pricey to say the least. we have a Lab size Labradoodle...£3660 plus $1800 for 10 days in quarantine & now I'm being quoted another £780 to get him from Melbourne to Perth...good job we love him!! its more than our 20ft container!!!! The process takes at least 6 months. Your dog will have to have a rabies vaccination then 4 weeks later a blood test, if they pass that blood test its another 180 days before they can enter Australia!!

  9. Moving after GCSES

    Hi Dan, apologies for the delay, I haven't been on for a while. We are looking at Duncraig SHS, St Marks & did look at Carine SHS (not going there now) all 3 schools have said they will apply for credit for my daughters GCSE results. When are you looking at moving? We have previously lived in Perth so have experience of the schools we are considering. Its not the ideal time for our eldest daughter but a job opportunity for my husband has arisen that we don't feel we can pass up!!
  10. Shipping

    Thats good to hear, I'm just deciding between PSS & John Mason
  11. Dog transportation

    Thanks everyone for your words of assurance!
  12. Dog transportation

    We are in the process of using PetAir. All good so far. I went for the Gold package as we will have left the country before our dog can because the 180 day rule (after rabies blood test) so need him collecting from where he will be staying & checking in. Also the gold includes all the paperwork that needs doing. When I visited our vet for the blood test last week he was happy we are using them. I still feel very nervous about our dog being in a crate for so long...poor thing!!

    Great thank you guys....feeling quite nervous about our poor dog being in a crate for that long!!
  14. Has anyone used Petair to move their dog from UK to Perth? or can anyone recommend a company they have used?
  15. Moving after GCSES

    The 3 schools I'm looking at have all said the same about applying for credit from GCSE results & also the WA School Curriculum Standards Authority. I was just wondering if anyone had personal experience & how their children faired?
