Moving to Germany
International Moving to Germany
If you need to relocate overseas to Germany with your household goods and are looking for a reliable and experienced international service to ship your belongings, you're in the right place!
We have locations across the USA making the process of moving both convenient and affordable because we're able to offer clients a wide selection of moving services.
Additionally, because of its business sector and ties with the U.S. military, Germany is one of our busiest destinations and we orchestrate hundreds of international moves each year for families and individuals.
Those moving household goods to Germany as personal property in most cases can import their belongings duty tax free.
However, those who wish to take advantage of this must meet the german tax and customs relief requirements.
Our Overseas Relocation Services
When using our international moving services to move to Germany, you won't have to worry about US customs.
We also take care of preparing your shipment and documentation so that everything runs as smooth as possible once it arrives overseas.
Depending on the service you select, we offer:
- Enclosed storage
- Packing and wrapping
- Pickup, delivery to our warehouse and the port
- US customs clearance and documentation
There are plenty of variables that affect the overall amount of time your move will take. Generally, sail times, meaning time on the water, from the east coast to Germany will be roughly two weeks. From the west coast it is usually 30 days to all base ports.
As international movers, we do everything that we can to meet our quote times but things do happen and these numbers should serve more as a guide than exact times.
Ways to Move Your Household Goods
Our international moving company offers a few different options when moving household goods to Germany. One can either use a shared or sole container service.
If you are on a time constraint, we offer clients their own exclusive shipping container of 20ft or 40ft at a flat rate.
With a shared service, you only pay for the actual volume you want to ship. This is a very popular method because not everyone has enough cargo to fill a 40ft container.
If you're only relocating from a one bedroom condo, chances are that you won't fill up your own container, so why pay more than you need?
If you are worried about leaving your car behind, don't be. We can ship your vehicle to Germany along with your household goods and other personal effects.
