    Smile Has anyone used Seven Seas for shipping?

    Hello, we're finally getting closer to getting to NZ, we received an offer on our house yesterday so now I'm trying to really get things sorted. I've been checking out the different companies for shipping and am wondering if anyone has used Seven Seas? We're only going to be shipping about 6 boxes and they've quoted us ?414 and 84 days, does that sound about right?

    Am hoping to get flights with Singapore Airlines out of Manchester to Auckland with a stay of a couple of days in Singapore to try and minimise our jetlag, but we can't book this until we complete on the house sale, just in case it falls through at the last minute . The great news is that the guy buying our house isn't in a chain so we could be sorted in about 8 weeks, although we are in an old terrace so the prospect of the survey is a little daunting. It did only take 6 weeks from viewing to completion for the sale of our other house, keep your fingers crossed for us.

    Cheers,
    Gina

    Thanks, I can't quite believe it's happening, although I'm trying not to get too excited until the survey is over and done with, then I can really start panicking - I'm mean getting excited.
