I believe you have something like six months to ship furniture. You might try contacting a moving company, since they have people who can take care of the customs issues.

Before you can ships things into Turkey you will need to have a residence permit. Then, you can bring in one shipment of personal belongings tax free, provided you do this no less than 2 months and no more than 6 months after your last entry into the country.

I think I am just going to ship a couple of boxes of clothes and bring 2 suitcases.  I will sell the rest here and buy new in Izmir.  I am not getting good feedback from people in the States about moving to Turkey.  They tell me to stay here because it is safer.  I would rather live there and be happy the rest of my life than pay the prices here and not be happy.  His mother is the one who invited me to live with them first.  He is the one who suggested marriage.  I am seriously thinking about it.  I pay $1250 a month here for a 2 bedroom apt. and he and his mom pay 250 a month for a 3 bedroom, 2 bath 2 blocks from the sea.  So what's to think about????

I think you have made the right decision. But that doesn't stop you from visiting these people if you are so fond of them and spending a few months with them over the winter. Izmir weather is great in January.
