Thanks to everyone who replied to my question. The goods we want to bring will fit into one room, so its a good idea to know roughly about the costs. Well worth bringing our stuff with us. Once again. Thanks. Shaz

The electrical equipment you need to be careful about bringing over are fridges and freezers, new or otherwise. Most of those sold in the UK will not work too well here as they aren't designed to cope with the climate. It could be very expensive in the long run.

Hi,It is by volume. We collected all the stuff we wanted to take into one room and got several quotes. the highest was £1500. We went with one for £800. (part load) we brought 34 boxes of varying sizes: clothes, books, toys, keyboard, other junk we will probably never need. it all arrived yesterday! (it left Derby on the 18th jan) Stuff is expensive here so it's worth doing your homework about things you might need (esp electricals)
Good luck with your move!

ps. bring extra passport pics for your residency visas - so much easier to get done in the UK!!
