Luckily all our furniture is IKEA and a small 2 seater 2nd hand sofa, not taking any of it, will give it away for FREE on marketplace, all extra non essentials that we wont be shipping will be given to our helper for 1st picking and even for her to share with the other helpers in her boarding house, shes taken a few big bags already LOL
I've bought 15 (30kgs size) boxes to pack and ship through HK POST, anything that doesnt make it into the 15 boxes will give given away
My other mate that is already in the UK, his mrs n kids (who are in HK still) is already packing the stuff to ship to UK, he's like dump it all, dont ship crap over, its much cheaper over there and less headache to pack and ship Plus he has to fill in TOR (transfer of residence). I wouldnt want to be in her shoes, 4th floor walk up
@chuckster007 - marie kondo rules - take shit that brings you joy. Dump the rest...
(And no, thats not an excuse for a hamsup reply!)
Bloomin' heck. We sent 5 30KG boxes home and I had a go at the wife because I thought most of that was junk!
We shipped 7m3 in September 2020 with Allied Pickfords, for $35k. Took nearly 6 months due to COVID container shortage. We didn't ship furniture or appliances, just personal stuff, & a lot of guitars/amps/drums/sewing machines. Used HK Post for a load of documents/books. And 9 bags on the plane!
Amazing how much crap we carry around, just to store in one place or another on the basis that it means something.
