It depends where you are moving from. UK/EU, no problem. US, wrong voltage.

Hope ur move ll go smoothly.
from my experience, most electronics should work...might have probems with kitchen appliances....need to look for the 110~240 sign...

Depending upon whom is paying for shipping you could send your lamps and have them rewired/resocketed for 240 volt bulbs... different size sockets.
You'll spend a bit on new appliances but it really isn't worth bringing that stuff from the States unless it works on 220vt. Laptops and desktop computers tend to but clocks, tv sets, kitchen appliances do not. Transformers are available but run hot, are troublesome, cost money, make a constant humming noise, etc. Just leave that stuff at home or have a yard sale.
