These are some of our top tips:

Air Freight

If money isn’t an issue for you, air freight may be the ideal solution. As you might expect, cargo space is limited on internation freight flights and, with furniture being such bulky items, you can expect to pay premium rates for the privilege. That, of course, is if you can find a carrier with the room to ship your furniture in the first place.

Sea Freight

A more cost-effective way to move furniture to Germany is by sea. Not only are cargo ships built to a larger scale, their buoyancy means that there are no restrictions in terms of weight. Naturally, your belongings will face a longer journey time than they would using an airborne carrier, but most customers find the savings they make are more than worth it.

Solo Load

When you move furniture to Germany by sea, your items will be loaded into a shipping container (along with your other belongings) prior to transport. Most freight services charge customers per container. This means that, even if you only have a few pieces of furniture you wish to send, you will be charged the full cost of the container. The advantage of this is that, once your furniture is loaded, it can be shipped immediately.

Shared Load

Of the various ways to reduce shipping costs when you move furniture to Germany, the simplest is simply to split the container fees with another customer heading in the same direction. This form of shared shipping is known as groupage and can offer significant savings. Because you need to wait for another person (or persons’) belongings to arrive before the container can be sent on its way, this can result in a longer wait.

Cheapest Way to Move Furniture to Germany

When you move furniture to Germany, always remember that the amount you’re prepared to spend determines how quickly you can ship your items. As previously discussed, shipping your furniture by sea as part of a shared load will be the cheapest form of transport, but will also take up to six weeks until it arrives.
