I am the Italian national CEO of Generalli Insurance Company. 9ekim performed the moving operation of my 90 cubic meter household goods when I first came to Turkey and later when I was leaving from Turkey. I have no hesitation in recommending you 9ekim, especially if you require long-distance and high-volume transportation.

I met 9ekim through their professional website www.taxfreecar.net. When I saw their references, I understood that it is the oldest and the most reliable company in Turkey for blue plate cars. I ordered a used VW Photeon from Germany.
