My train of thought was more like "when we come back in a year we'll have to buy all this stuff all over again unless we keep it!". And having a place to store it for free was an incentive to keep a lot of junk. I was definitely rethinking that earlier this year when my dad put his house on the market and I realized that I would have to pay someone to pack up all of our things and then pay to store it all until we could get back to Canada to sort it out. As luck would have it, he's taken it off the market so I can put it off for a while (at least until I'm granted a visa that allows me to leave the country - haha)

Do you live in a port city? I got rid of everything but I did bring all my art and bedding, a really expensive coffee machine that I can't use here, computers. I packed it myself, then drove it to the port, did all the paperwork, then picked it up here in Adelaide. It was about a full pallet of stuff cost around $600.00. Money well spent.

That's great to know Rebecca. Our stuff is at my dad's place in Vancouver and we're in Perth so maybe it would be worth shipping it by sea.

I'm planning on putting my bedroom furniture and winter items in storage just in case, and probably selling it down the line.
The rest of my furniture will be sold.
What I have to bring to Australia is more like little stuff- books, clothing, kitchen stuff, sentimental items.

I actually brought alot of stuff, I packed it all myself, then had it shrinked wrapped and palletised at the dock, right where the boat was. Then I picked it up on this end, the boxes were kind of crunched but it was all ok. Doing it yourself saves heaps of money, you can find out the ships schedules by looking at the port website.

That is really good to know, Rebecca Helps if you live in a port city, as you said. But another good option
