Completing the information form still didn't give enough information to the different companies

After completely the form and submitting it to be sent to different shipping companies I began to receive shipping proposal and quotes.

Although it was good to get a general price quote the proposals themselves were completely different from the information I submitted.

The first reply told me they would be delighted to help me move my belongings to the UK even though I had made it quite clear of the address I had given was in Ireland, the republic of, a completely different country. A revised quote with this company cost an extra $800aud.

The second reply I received said they would be happy to relocate my belongings to Ireland. For 6boxes and 1surf board cost almost 1076$aud. the information form I submitted had only 4 boxes of clothes and 1surf board mentioned. The revised quote on this was 1026$aud which made me really question how did 4 boxes cost over 1000$ and to remove 2 from the original quote only saved me $50?

The third reply quotes me 8,000$ aud to relocate my 3 bedroom house in my own container or $3000 to share a container with my 10boxes furniture and television. Again I only have 4boxes of clothes and 1 surf board. I asked for a revised quote on this and never received a reply.

We are a young Irish couple who were living in Perth WA when we received bad news of a family bereavement and had to go back to Ireland. We were unable to return to Australia due to family commitments. Although we know we couldn't afford to remove all our belongings from Australia we did hope to remove some momentous of our time in WA but All in all the quotes were too expensive and the fact that the companies couldn't even read the information submitted accurately made me not thrust them with my belongings. Our belongings remain in a friends home for the next few weeks until that friend moves out and donates whatever they can to charity and dumps everything else, such is life!!
