Hi everyone,

We are hoping to arrive in NZ from Canada early January, my work visa has just been approved, yippee! One of the issues my OH and I can't seem to decide on is whether or not to get a container, or just cough up the thousands and buy once there...my regular search on trademe.co hasn't left me with much confidence re: nice affordable used furniture. I'm looking for all your brilliant experienced advice on shipping from Canada... I have Crown Relocations coming to quote. Any other companies recommended/stay away from? What has your average time been before receiving container? I should add we are unsure if this will be a permanent move for us, although is anyone ever sure of that?!

Thanks for any and all advice!
