When it comes to moving large volumes or covering long distances, in Germany it is recommended to leave it up to the expertise of professional movers who will take charge of the removal process.
Some tips to prepare your move:
Start your moving preparation 3 months in advance
You may have to obtain visas, work permits, vaccination, or cancel services which require a notice period. Make a list of all you need to do. Being well-organized will help the move go more smoothly.
Sort through your belongings
Choose which goods you would like to bring along to Germany and which ones you prefer to leave behind either with a friend or in a storage unit. Seek advice: it might cost less to buy goods in Germany instead of bringing over your belongings.
Choose the right moving company
Finding a good moving company is essential to any expatriation project. Independent regulatory bodies like FIDI will help you find reliable moving companies. Internal quality processes, specialized packing materials and a large network will guarantee high standard of quality and service.
Prevent the risk of breakage
Since zero risk does not exist, material damage insurance is highly recommended.
