Hi I am moving out in Sept and I have got some odds and sods to bring over. I spoke to Dolphin who quoted silly money, about 4 times the value of the stuff. I could put it all in a transit van and only fill half it. Would it be feasible to buy an old van in the u.k. load it and get that transported out (from 990) offload my stuff then take it back to Turkey to scrap it or scrap it in the TRNC?

Its a long drive Mick, you'll need a motor that's reliable, last thing you need is to breakdown in the middle of Bulgaria, but Good luck

Maybe worth talking to Jo Valentine who regularly does part loads for people.

message one, why you think you can just take it to turkey and scrap it, when you enter turkey the vehicle details are stamped in your passport, which means you cannot leave turkey without it. as turkey does not allow any vehicle imports from individuals

If I am reading msg1 correct, he says he is getting the van transported out. I don't think he intends to drive it out but fill it up and have the van shipped over. People have done this before and it does work out cheaper.

The man with the van is called Nick. He is waiting for a job to come out here at the start of August as he then has a load to pick up for someone from here. His number is: 01974 282 500 / 07866 731 400

He is very reasonable too!

message 3 - i think there is a rule that if you import a vehicle you cannot sell it for 2-3 years also there are regulations for private persons not being allowed to have commercial vehicles.



i think it best you check before you come over

Agile and I did exactly the same, came in a Transit van, though full to the gunnels, emptied it, drove back empty, filled it again and drove back and stayed. We imported the van eventually (now dead). Expensive yes, but the experience (apart from the ferry into Girne - the pits) was something you could never recreate.

Would I do it that way again - like a shot but it would not suit everyone. It was just the funniest, unusual, unforgettable experience. Pauline.
