Hello everyone,

I am planning to move to NZ from US in the third week of June.

Need some suggestions from "been there, done it" people on the following issues.

a) My job is in Wellington C.B.D. I am planning to rent a house. Budget: upto 400 $ per week. What suburbs would you recommend? Access to public transport to work is key.

b) Any suggestion on which moving agency is reliable in US? Planning to ship stuff. Mainly books, china, some furniture.

c) Should I purchase the electric adapters/converters in US or are they ubiqutous in NZ? Have a range of electric/electronic appliances - lap top, shaving kit, food processer etc.

Any help in this regards is greatly appreciated !
