I do hope it all gets home in one piece(s) !!!!

You don't get "beat-up" on Duties do you?  'Cause that would almost be insult..... you own it and it is used!  Just thinking back to Roger Guppy's description of taking a guitar into Portugal.......

Doug, I think you are referring to a comment I made about shipping goods from America to here. There is no trade agreement between Portugal and America so imports get taxes and duties applied and that can be painful. U.K. to Portugal is no problem in fact moving goods around all E.E.C. countries is not a problem.

Well, it sounds to me like you'll be sleeping on the couch for a bit maybe!  Fingers crossed for safe travels for ALL!

Re: Return of my equipment

hi grah, i was going to make a joke about e-bay, but i know how selling your gear off is akin to selling your kids into slave labour. my wife keeps on at me to sell my old stuff eg; mixers, amps, guitars, mics, 8 track digi recorder, keyboards etc, but it's just too painful. i've even got a windows 95 PC in the attic...i know i'm just a sad old fart.

just a thought; seeing as you're planning to get a bigger place, you could leave bits and pieces at friends homes until you've moved?

Hang them from the rafters or create a storage loft .
