Re: Importing belongings need help!,,

Hannah it depends how much you are bringing out and what kind of items.

If you are looking at just 'exess baggage type' I suggest you look at flying jet 2 who let you bring several extra cases at reasonable cost.

If you are looking at shipping furniture etc, it depends how much you are bringing - a van load? a container load or part container?

If you are talking about furniture it is often cheaper to buy it in Turkey, do a search there are several threads that might help. I am sure other members will be along soon to offer good advice.

Good luck in your new home

I think you can get taxed on electrical goods its a bit hit and miss, you can take a chance in your luggage. Some people have brought items and will be able to offer you better advice and give you more information than I can. I carried things in my luggage bit by bit, but I was not moving to live in Turkey.

Good luck with the move.

Maybe a bit difficult to take a chair in excess baggage. Unless the chairs are of sentimental value I would buy furniture and electrical items there, they are not expensive and may work out cheaper in the long run.

Re furniture keep in mind that the climate is different and wooden furniture does not always stand up to it, it can warp and twist unless these are very special chairs the cost of shipping will outweigh any new purchase. Also some electrical goods do not cope well with the voltage surges and changes you get here and you can buy most things here now at a good price and you have a gurantee with them which of ourse imported goods will not have.

Re: Importing belongings need help!,,

From a personal point of view my advice is to bring what you want. It is, in my opinion, a mistake to ditch everything and buy new; I like having familiar things around me and did not leave anything behind that I would want here, one mistake I made was to leave all my books behind - still regret that, especially when I realised it would not have added any significant cost to the container!

It is also false economy to dump things you have paid for and buy new - cost of shipping by container is a combination of weight and volume so electrical items are cheap to ship - and expensive to replace here if you already own them in UK. All UK electrical things will work fine here and are no more susceptible to voltage surges than things you will buy here. One exception would be TV which can be taxed to get them here and unless brand new not worth bringing.

All my wooden furniture that I brought with me, including antiques, are fine here.

Donīt be too quick to ditch things that have memories or sentimental value - you are coming to a foreign country and you will want your nice thing with you.

Re: Importing belongings need help!,,

I agree with ian and if your not in a rush try and find someone who is bringing a van over and look to share the costs for some space on it .

Good luck

Re: Importing belongings need help!,,

Would say total opposite. Have seen many who bitterly regret the hassle and expense of bringing out stuff which is readily available in Turkey
