  1. Giving an update on this situation .... In the end I got someone privately to take a look at the electricity as the real estate agent just read the request message and never replied. I also was able to contact the owner of the apartment via WhatsApp and he promised to send someone to look at the solar. This took 2 weeks before someone showed up.... and said he was there to fix the electricity. The communication with his only Turkish, my only English in person... assisted by someone who spoke limited English on WhatsApp continued for quite a few minutes and seemed more like a SCAM than
  2. Thanks Ken for the details. Will be sure to keep you all posted on what happens.
  3. Thanks for the details and suggestions Justin. I'll work on contacting them again next week and see what happens.

My contract in Turkey is almost up and after after accumulating so many things over the time here was trying to find a company to ship either large boxes or even a barrel. So far I've only seen companies that offer FCL, LCL or DHL size packages but nothing in between. Trying to stick to ocean freight if possible. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
