Well. It looks like FH and I might be moving to the Perth/Mandurah area in the next few months (if not sooner ).
Its a huge move, and we are lucky that as its due to work FH's employer will pay for the relocation costs. I'm yet to find out exactly what it does and doesn't cost. But its better than facing redundancy.
Is there anyone on WC that has done the move and can offer some advice? Or anyone who lives in the Mandurah area (not sure on suburb yet as he will be based at the mine site in Boddington)?
We also currently live with my parents - so we have alot of the small kitchen things but have no furniture apart from that. I've been looking at furniture packages from Super Amart - there is two I like - about 1k in price difference - http://www.superamart.com.au/furniture/ ... ood-41449/ or http://www.superamart.com.au/furniture/ ... ice-47660/. I realise that it is 'cheap furniture' but we will need furniture fast on a limited budget. I'm not sure whether its better to buy it here or there either.
Anyone got any tips or advice for basically moving out and/or interstate for the first time? We knew this was coming and were hoping to buy in 12-18 months time anyway but I didn't think it would be interstate or this sudden.
Freaking out because its so hard to research from the other side of the country, and its such a huge move.
