Hello, I am new to the site. I have accepted a teaching post in Bursa and will be moving to Turkey the first of August. I am trying to plan a budget and determine costs to get moved and set-up in new place. Some things I have been able to find out through research on various sites and search engines but I still have some questions. So, here they are. 1. Typically, for rentals what deposits are required? First, last or both? Damage deposit? 2. What deposits are required for utilities and are they applied for separately or together - like water/sewage/trash and electricity. 3. Is it hard to find rentals that accept small dogs (2 dachshunds under 20 lbs.) 4. Do most ex-pats get health insurance apart from what is offered through Turkish government? 5. For U. S. ex-pats - have any of you used U. S. Global Mail for mail/package services? How do you like it? 6. How good is internet service? Is it good enough to stream movies or Skype with folks back home? How about downloading e-books? 7. Is there anyone out there who lives and works in Bursa? I have sent out some posts on other sites but have gotten no response. 8. What about phone services? I have a cell phone now. Should I bring it with me and get a service in Bursa? I think that is all of the general questions for now. I do have some questions regarding teaching so if anyone has experience in that area please respond. Thank!
