Question Furnishing a home



Ola Folks!

I'm back with yet more questions.

So wifey popped a question; how do people transport furniture from the seller to a home?

Back in the Middle East, one can easily find truckers for hire. You can negotiate a price & then the driver follows you to the pick-up place, loads the furniture for you & transports it to your home. And yes, if the furniture is from a shop, they do the deliver for you.

Is there anything similar to that in Turkey? We are thinking of saving some money & buying some home furnishings from LetGo, for example. Hence, the question.

In case the locality matters, then this would apply to Beylikduzu.

Appreciate the help.

Re: Furnishing a home

In some towns there are three wheel vehicles (Piaggio), these guys will carry for you.They can normally be found around a market, (or an industrial area) We recently were given some white goods by friends who were returning to the UK. We spoke to a chap at a second hand goods shop, sure enough they also had a man-with-a-van. We discussed the details (carry down one flight of stairs, drive 100km, carry down to basement) and agreed a price of 350TL. I hope this helps.

Re: Furnishing a home

We bought some furniture in Alanya and haggled on the price. When we had haggled as far as possible I made a disappointed sigh and turned to leave. I then turned back again and said “make it free delivery and I’ll buy”.

Works most times.

WE have bought furniture etc in Alanya. Depending on how much you have spent they will deliver free or a small charge. The last thing we bought was from Metro in Alanya 16klm away table and chairs 2000tl, so no charge. Butt007

I always thought haggling was compulsory in Turkey…

Re: Furnishing a home

One of the first things to do when you arrive in Turkey is to cozy up to the guy in your local mini market shop.

He will know everyone in your area, painters, plumbers, electricians and a man with a van.
