It’s been almost two months days since we said good bye to our ENTIRE home contents, everything but the kitchen sink, fridge freezer and washing machine was packed. According to our online tracker our goods are enroute from the UK to Indonesia and total transit time will take 40 days.
If you didn’t read how we came to choose Crown, you can find that here:
How did it all go?
Living in London we had to request two parking spots outside our house for the movers truck.
The 4 guys that came to pack our boxes were very professional, they had obviously done this many times and were happy to chat. Tea and coffee breaks were very limited, they just got on with the job and worked in a silent proficiency each taking one room each.
Contents in each room consisted of
Kitchen: All appliances, cutlery, plates, pots and pans
Living room: 50″ TV, IKEA 4 seater sofa with chaise and footstool, books, countless toddler toys
Main bedroom: Bed, wardrobe, chester draws, book shelf, side tables, baby travel cot, clothes that we didn’t need for December in NZ ie. winter coats, jumpers, winter boots etc.
Toddler room: cot bed, chester draws, book case, winter clothes + many more toys, moses basket
Things that couldn’t be boxed: cleaning products, wicker baskets (wood), things that had batteries in them were removed and put into a seperate bag in case of leakage
Misc: hallway shelves, washing cupboard stuff that have accumulate over the years but won’t throw away, extention cables, frames, picnic baskets etc. Living together for 5 years + children creates lots of crap
Keep you posted when the shipment arrives in Auckland
Nick's Dutch wife is mostly concerned about the quality of NZ chocolate and cheese.Hope we don't disappoint.
