A good way to get extra weight here is too book www.jet2.com you pay £22.50 for 22kg of luggage and each passenger is allowed 3 cases ie. 66kg plus your 10 kilo hand luggage.
 I f you are booking a return flight book each leg separately as you can not just book the cases for one leg of a return journey.

That's an excellent tip, Mark, And I'm pretty sure Bernie will talk someone else into coming out with them just to make sure that they have 9 suitcases between them!

We moved over with 8 suitcases and 4 hand luggages. One thing I would say is be absolutely sure you can move them. Our friends followed us to Stansted to help get them from car park to check in - but from arrival carousel at Dalaman to minibus transfer it was a nightmare. Mrs Scunner had two three year olds, leaving me with 8 suitcases - logic suggested 2 trolleys with 4 on each and that's what I did. Did you know, two trolleys head off in opposite directions if you try to push them both yourself?!!

Excess baggage charge? £0.00. But that's another story  :)

Jet2 is the best  airline for luggage, 3 hold bags x 22 kgs each for £23 each

I am moving to Uzumlu this weekend and looked at all the options to get as much over with me as I could.

I am flying from Leeds on Saturday with my daughter and a friend, that's 3 adults, 7 hold bags(all for me!) and  3 flight bags.

It's took weeks of planning, I am renting out my house, I have been packing and storing, selling on eBay, giving things to my family, and the final result is me and 7 cases.

I hope to meet up with others who have taken the plunge and done the same!
Good luck Bernie

Oh wow, Susie!

Before you know it, you'll be de-stressing in Uzumlu and be so glad you made the move! Can't think of a better place to feel properly chilled than Uzumlu.

Good luck with the last minute stuff and have a wonderful time.

Susiepink, I wish you the best of luck for the move, and Bernie - you will be there before you know it and all the stress will be worthwhile.

We found out today that our other overseas possibility (Tanzania) is a no-go - or rather they are *still* procrastinating over whether to offer us the job or not - so we've taken matters into our own hands.

We've said "We're out" (Deborah Meaden voice) which means full steam ahead for Turkey.....we're planning to move in June/July. Whoop whoop!
