How to Move to Germany from the US

There are a lot of opportunities as an American moving to Germany from the US. This has caused an influx of American expats in the country. With so many people thinking about coming here, we compiled a guide on how we help move people to Germany.

Our Overseas Relocation Services

When using our international moving services to move to Germany, you won’t have to worry about anything during the move process. We take care of preparing your shipment and documentation so that everything runs as smooth as possible once it arrives overseas.

Ways to Move Your Household Goods

Our international moving company offers a few different shipping 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 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? Our experience and volume allow us to complete multiple consolidations to Germany a month. Ultimately meaning you won’t have to wait long for your goods to ship.

Don’t be worried about leaving your car behind. We can also ship your vehicle to Germany along with your household goods and other personal effects.

How Long Does Moving to Germany Take?

There are plenty of variables that affect the overall amount of time your move will take. In most cases, sail times, meaning time on the water from the east coast to Germany will be around three weeks. From the west coast it is usually 30 days to all base ports. Generally from door to door, moving to Germany takes about 6-8 weeks, but there are shipments that are shorter or longer.

As international movers, we do everything that we can to meet our estimate but these should serve more as a guide than exact times.

How Much Does Moving to Germany Cost?

The cost for moving to Germany from the USA depends on a few different details. Some factors that change the price are volume of goods, origin/destination, and service selected. For example, a move to Germany from LA would have a different price than a move to Germany from NY even with everything else the same. With this in mind, our international move representatives create custom quotes for all inquiries.
