Who would have known it would be cheaper to hire a UK company for transporting our belongings than a local Swedish company. In my world it’s very strange how a company based in Britain who drive over and pick up the stuff in our apartment, then transport it back to the UK, ships it to Australia and then drive it out to us and carry our stuff up in the apartment in Melbourne can be cheaper, but it is. That’s why we’ve decided to let Move Corp bring our belongings Down Under. The only downside to it all is that they can’t pick up until mid-August which means we probably won’t get our stuff until November. We’ll already be back in Australia at the time of the pick up but my brother has kindly enough offered to help out.
We still need to have everything packed and ready by the end of next week and the apartment cleaned by then so we’re keeping busy. We bought proper moving boxes to pack in and lots of bubble wrap. I’m also stressing a bit about work trying to get things done before I go on holiday. My plan was to try to do less hours given that I have around 60 hours of flex that I won’t get paid for when I quit and I’m not that keen on just giving away my time to the company. I’m nice but not really that nice. 🙂 That plan didn’t really work out that well though since I still am 54 hours plus. Tomorrow is my last day of work before my holiday leave and my very last day in the office here in Gothenburg. I’ve been too busy to really think about it too much but I bet it will feel strange tomorrow when I clean out all my stuff.Move corp, move to Australia, transport, work
