What Are The Costs of Removals to Germany?
Moving to a new country can be a complicated and expensive business and it’s important that you budget things accordingly. While most people plan for their own flight costs and the expense of settling in their new home, shipping and transport fees for their belongings are often an afterthought. When arranging your removals to Germany, costs should be at the forefront of your mind, so you don’t go over budget.
Fortunately for our UK customers, Movewise Ltd is here to help. Over the many years that we have been in business, we have assisted thousands of removals to Germany – costs, included. To help you plan for your own move, we have put together some of the most common expenses you will need to budget for.
Removals to Germany: Shipping Costs
By far the biggest costs involved when relocating to Germany are those related to shipping. These costs are generally calculated by volume, since your belongings will be taking up space in a shipping container. Since prices are fixed per shipping container, you can expect to be charged more for a smaller consignment, unless you are prepared to share your container with another customer and split the costs.
Removals to Germany: Other Costs
While the lion’s share of expenses arise from shipping your removals to Germany, costs are also incurred elsewhere. You will likely need to hire a professional packing service to ensure your belongings meet the requirements for international shipping standards. You will also need to fill out and register certain forms for Customs Officers in Germany, which may also incur an administrative fee. Last, but not least, are the haulage costs for transporting your belongings overland from the German entry port to their final destination.
Reducing the Cost of Removals to Germany
While this seems a lot to take on, we can help you mitigate your removal to Germany costs. As we have already mentioned, you can choose to ship your belongings as a part load (also known as groupage). This can save you a significant amount of money by splitting the shipping cost between you and however many other customers are sharing your shipping container. While this can cause a slight delay while we await the other customers’ belongings for shipment, most of our clients consider the savings to more than make up for it.
