I'm visiting Bali in a couple of weeks. Travel, stay etc. are all tied up. Better Half thinks that it is a good idea to buy some furniture from Bali and get it shipped to Sydney. She has been told that it works out better in terms of cost as well as quality (but folks have been vague on details because it seems to be something always done by a friend of a friend but never by someone directly known to us). The items we need to buy are bulky: entertainment unit, chairs, dining room buffet etc. We may not buy all of these, but entertainment unit is the one thing we really need.
Is it a good idea to buy furniture in Bali? If so, is there a well established supply chain that can do a door-to-door delivery for us to Sydney? Fumigation? Customs? What do we need to know?
