Every year thousands of Germans leave their home country. Whether because of professional reasons, the yearning for a life in a foreign culture or to enjoy the well-deserved retirement in a warmer climate – in 2013 alone, Germany counted almost 800,000 emigrants. Emigration is an exciting adventure, peppered with many challenges. Above all, moving with a family and a full household of furniture and effects is a common stress factor. The following tips can help to make your move process as smooth as possible for you and your family:

1. Trust a relocation specialist

Choose a moving company that offers complete door-to-door moves from a single source, including customs clearance. This not only saves time, but gives you peace of mind. The removals company should have extensive experience in handling international moves and be able to provide appropriate references. Memberships in recognized moving associations (e.g. FIDI, Omni and IAM) guarantee compliance with international quality standards.

2. Pay attention to the services offered

A good moving service includes transportation from door to door, professional (dis-) assembling of furniture, packing and unpacking of all goods and the disposal of all packaging material. A good moving company offers to organize the installation of kitchens and connection of appliances. In most cases, these works are exclusive and will be invoiced separately.

3. Ask for additional support

In addition to the handling of the actual move, some moving companies also offer relocation services. Experienced relocation consultants assist you with visa applications, home and school search, registration with local authorities and much more. Ask for individual service packages.

4. Stay on top of the moving process

If possible, you should be present on the moving days to answer any questions the moving team might have. On the day of packing, the moving company will create an inventory list with all goods to be transported. Check if the list is complete, get it signed by the team leader and keep a copy. Remember to give the moving company your contact details in the destination country, so they can easily get hold of you. On the day of moving in, have a furniture position plan ready. This will ensure that all items will end up in the right places and you do not have to move around furniture yourself.
