My wife and I are looking at moving to Europe in a couple of months, and I unfortunately I have a lot of electronic stuff that I'm not sure what to do with. My computer is custom built and ran me about $1600. I also have a nice new sound system that was about $800. I've heard that the electric difference isn't as big a deal now as it was 10 or 20 years ago. Do I need to sell me stuff? Is it going to run safely over there? And of course, is shipping it to myself there going to cost more than it's worth?
The most fun part of this entire thing is that we don't even know for sure we're staying there. 3 months to find a job (the job market in my field is dead in the US unfortunately, but thriving in Germany), so even if I do go over there I'll probably put my stuff in storage for 3 months and then if we get a job have my family ship the good stuff and sell or store the rest.
Anyway, anyone have any experience with this kind of thing?
