International Removals to Germany
Germany: An overview
Germany is one of our key destinations, reflecting its position as the economic and political powerhouse of Europe and its largest country by population. Bordering nine other countries it is geographically at the heart of Europe too, with a landscape ranging from flat fertile farmland in the north, to the central highlands of forested hills and the Bavarian Alps in the south. After the reunification of Germany in 1990 Berlin once again became the capital city. You can rest assured we will assist you at every stage from start to finish of your move to Germany, leaving you to enjoy everything this culturally-rich country has to offer.
German Customs and quarantine regulations
Germany is a member of the European Union (EU). The UK’s future relationship with the EU has still to be decided, but currently there are few customs and import regulations that apply to moves from the UK. You can take your cat or dog to Germany so long as it has been been vaccinated against rabies within 21 days of moving and is at least three months old. Your Move Manager will oversee your move throughout and will guide you through Germany’s Customs and quarantine regulations as they apply to your individual circumstances.
What should I do with the things I can’t take?
Currently you can import any used household goods and personal effects into Germany provided VAT has been paid on them in the EU. Importing cars and motorcycles can be complicated, there are some items you may not be permitted to import into Germany, and there will probably be others you don’t need to take but would like to keep. The answer is to store them in our secure and well-maintained storage facilities, where you can access them at any time during working hours.
How long will it take to ship my possessions?
Moves to Germany are usually carried out door-to-door using a dedicated removals vehicle. How long the move will take is largely determined by where in Germany you are moving. Your Move Manager will supply a schedule covering the expected transit time for your particular move.
