Heard from our CO on 9th of January. They have recommended we apply for the BC100 if we have enough evidence. Hopefully see an approval this or next month!

Just curious with all the recent grants, does anyone want to share a shipping container?

Where are you shipping from and when?.... I don't think we have enough stuff to even fill half a container but great idea!

Take note that the ports in California are mostly on strike and if you want to ship from there your goods may be delayed significantly!

that is correct. I work in transportation and almost all steamship lines have stopped all service from the west coast. All of the ports are so congested that nothing is going in or out.

We're going to try and ship out of Houston because it's very close and hopefully not as congested.

We are packing things into 50lb totes / cases and paying the extra baggage fees with the airline. at about $123 per piece. it worked out cheaper for us. we don't have any expensive or overly nice pieces of furniture so we will sell it here and replace it there, think we will come out ahead over shipping.

That's exactly the plan I arrived at yesterday, Heats, though I'm planning to fly United. I have to come back to the U.S. in June and August, so am going to store some packed totes and maybe not even have to pay extra fees (I'll travel extreme light from Sydney, so the one checked bag that comes with the ticket can be used for the totes).

Great idea! I should have taken an extra bag with me when we went over at Xmas but it was such a rushed trip. Just didn't think of it at the time.

It won't work for us tho. We are going to be taking a couple pieces of furniture, quite a few framed pictures, and lots of car stuff as we are bring 2 sports cars over with us.....and a trailer for them!
