Hello everybody
« on: March 14, 2017, 04:01:31 PM »
Hey everybody,
My wife and I are moving to the uk on Sunday. We're from Gold Coast,Australia(kiwi though) and well be looking for a nice van to do up so we can live the van life for the next 2 yrs or so.
Were in France atm, so I've been looking on eBay, auto trader and gumtree for vans, but I've been wondering if there are any other good sites to look?
Well be staying in Suffolk, Ipswich with a relative of my wife and if anyone local could give us any advice on good places to look for tools, supplies etc, anything really we'd be really grateful.
thanks.

Greetings & Welcome!

Thrift stores are one of my favorite places to shop for almost anything.

If there's a local Craigslist, you might add that to your list...

Good luck & keep us posted!

B&Q is a good starting point =]

Plenty of them about, and average prices!

For tools and general building materials your better off looking for a screwfix or toolstation. They tend to be lower priced than B&Q etc for many tools.
