Re: Pros and Cons of importing personal goods into Turkey

Kıtty looks lıke I am a bıt late wıth advıce,but here ıt ıs ıf you need ıt.We shıpped 500 kgs ın boxes 12 yrs ago after buyıng our appt.Bıggest mıstake ın our 25 yrs wıth Turkey.Turkısh Customs are a compleat and utter nıghtmare.All are goods were personal except for a tv,DVD and vıdeo player.They held the goods for months wantıng 3000ytl duty(12 yrs ago,work out the maths)After I thınk 4 months they saıd our boxes were dıstroyed ın the fıre at Istanbul warehouse and to see our shıpper for ınsurence claım.Other names of companıes put on here to shıp out your goods I have never heard of bar 1.Rather than put ıt on the open forum I wıll PM you.I would never contemplate shıppıng goods from the UK to Turkey ever agaın.Spurs ıs rıght,do ıt yourself.

Re: Pros and Cons of importing personal goods into Turkey

Wow- what an absolute nightmare for you. I think your post TNT123 after Spurs' comments has been the final nail in the coffin for us regarding using shipping. After much discussion my parents have decided to leave personal possessions with friends and family for a few months whilst focus on getting settled in a Turkey (they're also taking their dog with them to make things even more complicated!) and to return to the UK in the spring to collect them with a car. Once again, thank you for taking the time to give your advice.
