And me, If your partner is anything like mine sell, give away or skip the lot.
Every time we have moved with all our possessions in U.K. within three years we have skipped most of it, its either the wrong size colour or we needed a change.
Conceder the costs of moving furniture even accounting for an oven full of toothpaste then after a few months throwing everything except the toothpaste against buying everything new and waiting for a 2 for one offer at Kaufland for the toothpaste.
It will cost you more to buy all new but with the saving on not bringing anything you are more than half way there.
How will your old U.K. furniture look in your new apartment or renovated home
