yay! We are finally going home to the real world grin

Any recommendations on shipping companys? We got one quote from a company which was a bit daft as it was just a minimum quote and they apparently can't tell us the actual price until it is all packed and on its way hmm

Any recommendations?

a couple of friends used Pickfords last year when they went back, but got quotes from other companies as well and said Pickfords were comparable to them and preferred to go with a well known company. HTH

Good luck for going back to the real world, another couple of years for us before we go back to reality grin
