Wondering if we should ship our lovely large trampoline and our light swing set, for our kids? The trampoline is about 8 ft x 10 ft. The swing set has 2 swing seats.
We will be assigned a 3 bedroom home somewhere in Dhahran Aramco for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids. Do all the homes come with some backyard space? Is there any prohibition against kids trampolines or swing sets? Has anyone shipped these types of items before? Is there help there to re-assemble them once they arrive?

I'd look at purchasing them in the kingdom, I'd think shipping would be horrendous. There are playgrounds at the compound parks, and Saco carries trampolines www.saco-ksa.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=trampoline I'm sure there are stores that carry swing sets.
Toysrus had some swing sets. I've seen both in gardens at Aramco. If you are using a container, and have space, I'd bring. If you would be paying just to ship the stuff, I'd sell in the US and buy new.
All the houses I've visited have outdoor space. I'm not sure about the flats some families were ending up in for a while.
