Bringing things to Turkey?
Hi

I am planning to move to Altinkum soon and I am wondering if I drive over in my Car (something I have always wanted to do just for the adventure) am I likely to have any problems bringing my possessions in to Turkey? I am presuming when I drive thru europe there shouldnt be any problems but how do I avoid import duties? Everything will be used. Basically my thinking is if I sell my things here before I leave I wont get much and to buy new when I get there will be expensive. The kind of things I am thinking of are:

PC
TV
DVD PLAYER
TOASTER
MICROWAVE
DVDs
Wii & GAMES
VARIOUS TOYS
BICYCLE(S)
BEDDING
CLOTHES

Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks

Unless you've already got A Residence Permit I'd advise against trying to bring anything electrical through a border crossing.

This is all quite complex but I think I could have a plan! I fly to Turkey get married (engaged to a Turk anyway) , get a rent book & residency then fly back. Next I use this The gelin hakki (right of the bride) and I can drive my car full of as much as i can fit in it (which is a fair bit because its a Shogun!) back to Turkey!

I can't believe this Gelin Hakki is for real! It would be amazing if its true!

Hey KayaKoyuOldBoy I read about it on this Forum! My post was tongue in cheek just in case you thought I was some kind of nutcase!

Hello
We're moving to Didim in March/April 2010. I will be bringing minor household items - books, pictures, pots & Pans, etc. No furniture, no appliances, no electricals.
I would like to have a good bicycle. Is it better to import from UK or can I buy a good bicycle in Didim? (eg. not Migros, but a specialist bike shop)
I also need to buy a new computer. Can anyone recommend a supplier in or near Didim?
