How much does moving from the UK to Germany cost?
The moving costs depend on volume and distance, hence local moving will always be cheaper than long-distance moving. In terms of volume, we considering two types of removals – small (5 and 10 cubic meters of volume) and large – 15, 20 and 30 cubic meters. For example, if you plan on relocating a few household goods from London to Berlin for our smallest option 5 cubic meters you will only pay £819, and the biggest option ( 30 cubic meters) will cost you around £2849. The other price example for moving from Manchester to Hamburg, a small removal option starting from £869 and large removal from £1739.

How long does it take for my belonging to arrive in Germany?
The delivery from the UK to Germany takes one or two days. However, every move is different, so the duration depends on a variety of factors. Long-distance moving will always take longer than local moving. Also, home moving (full load options – 20 and 30 cubic meters) will take less time than small removals, as it does not require additional stops. However, since the UK is not a member of the EU additional procedures are implemented, that may affect this time. So now the delivery time depends on how long the customs clearance will take. Usually, the delivery time does not change and still takes one or two days.
I’m moving to Germany – what documents do I need?

We will also need proof of your destination address in Germany.
